Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Tall Tales from De Sitter Space
26 November 2001 13:00 in CM221
"I will give a brief review of the conjectured de Sitter/conformal field theory (dS/CFT) correspondence, and discuss some recent investigations of this conjectured duality. In particular, I will consider generalized "flows" or solutions, which are asymptotically de Sitter. A recent theorem by Gao and Wald dictates that the conformal diagram for these solutions is taller than it is wide. From this result, one can infer many interesting properties for the dual CFT."
