High Energy Theory Seminar - Costis Papayeorgakis, Rutgers University - "On the (2,0) theory and 5D SYM"

Mon, Mar 25, 2013, 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm
PCTS Seminar Room
"We will review the connection between the six-dimensional (2,0) theory and maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills in five dimensions (MSYM). We will discuss the implications of a conjectured relation between the two, at all energy scales, for MSYM. We will also deconstruct MSYM from a four-dimensional circular quiver gauge theory and consider the possibility of instanton-solitons contributing to perturbative amplitudes."
