Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: New results in Tachyon Condensation
3 February 2006 13:00 in CM221
"I will give an overview of Sen's tachyon conjectures and the construction of open bosonic string field theory. Pin-pointing the reasons why it used to be hard to find exact solutions, we propose a new gauge fixing condition which is friendlier to the algebraic structure of the theory. This allows us to find an explicit analytic solution and prove Sen's first conjecture. "
