Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Topological Strings and Special holonomy

Presented by Asad Naqvi (Swansea),

9 December 2005 13:00 in CM221

"The usual topological strings are constructed on six dimensional Calabi-Yau manifolds. We will describe the construction of new topological string theories on manifolds of special holonomy: seven dimensional G_2, and eight dimensional Spin(7) manifolds. These theories give a new perspective on the geometry of special holonomy manifolds."
