Andrea Prinsloo gives Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminar at Durham University

cpt-banner Andrea Prinsloo is visiting the Mathematics Department at the University of Durham today and giving the High Energy Physics Lunchtime Seminar on “Giant gravitons in an AdS3/CFT2 Correspondence“.  In the talk she describes classes of supersymmetric D1 and D5 branes, known as giant gravitons, in IIB string theory on AdS3 x S3 x S3 x S1 with pure RR flux, which is conjectured to have a 2D conformal field theory dual. The talk will close with a few remarks on these D-branes as integrability preserving boundary conditions for open IIB superstrings.  The webpage for the Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminar Series is here.
