In Victor’s last talk, and the last talk of ST4, we turned to the computation of partition functions for gauge theories on .
The 2d chiral and vector multiplets are simply dimensional reductions of their counterparts in 4d, and they correspond respectively to matter and gauge degrees of freedom. 552 more words
Today’s morning session began with the first of the four lectures on Supersymmetric Gauge Theories and Localization by Victor Ivan Giraldo-Rivera (ICTS). Before starting his main lectures, Victor continued the review of supersymmetry in -dimensional flat space, which was initiated by Madhusudhan Raman (IMSc) in the evening talk of yesterday. 1,233 more words

Back in February, Ijjas, Steinhardt, and Loeb wrote an article for Scientific American titled “Pop Goes the Universe” criticizing cosmic inflation, the proposal that the universe underwent a period of rapid expansion early in its life, smoothing it out to achieve the (mostly) uniform universe we see today. 886 more words
