Symmetries of Strings and Branes (part 1 of 4)
Speaker:Peter West (King’s College)
Abstract:I will begin by explaining electro-magnetic duality symmetries in the context of supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories. I will then discuss S, T and U dualities of string theory and their implications for branes. The conjectured E11 symmetry will also be considered.
