Events for 28 February 2020

Alessandro Tomasiello: On supersymmetry breaking in supergravity

1:00pm, CM101

I will consider non-supersymmetric vacua in string theory. First I will discuss a procedure to generate such solutions starting from some supersymmetric classes; this can be partially read off from a deformation of the pure spinor method. I will then focus on a class of AdS7 non-supersymmetric vacua that can be generated by the more conventional method of consistent truncations. I will illustrate several perturbative and non-perturbative decay channels, concluding that all solutions decay, with one possible exception.
