Understanding more about non-supersymmetric dualities

  • Event date: 23rd April 2014
  • Speaker: Steve Abel (Durham)
  • Location: Higgs Centre Seminar Room, Room 4305,

Event details

In recent years there has been some progress in trying to extend Seiberg duality to non-supersymmetric theories, or at least in understanding what makes it so hard. In this talk I review the subject beginning with an overview of the phases in the Standard Model and the introducing Seiberg duality and centring the discussion on its connection with Hidden Local Symmetry. I also discuss possible future directions.

About Particle Physics Theory seminars

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
