Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: E theory

Presented by Peter West, King's College

20 October 2017 13:00 in CM221

I will propose a low energy effective action of string and branes which possess a
very large Kac-Moody symmetry (E11). The equations of motion are essentially
determined by this symmetry and one finds that this single unififed theory contains the maximal
supergravity theories in all dimensions and also all the gauged maximal supergravity theories.
