Wolf and Raspollini attend gauge theory workshop at the University of Leeds

Martin Wolf and his PhD student Lorenzo Raspollini are at the University of Leeds this week to attend the Workshop on Higher Gauge Theory:” where should we look for higher gauge matter? (From emerging physics and topological quantum computing to string and M-theory).   Martin is also giving a talk entitled “Twistor Geometry and Higher Gauge Theory” during which he will explain how higher groupoid bundles and twistor geometry can be combined to formulate higher gauge theory. In particular, he will discuss the construction of superconformal self-dual tensor field theories in six dimensions and superconformal Yang-Mills theory in four dimensions in terms of holomorphic higher Chern-Simons theory on supertwistor space.
