Event Details

The known superconformal field theories in six dimensions (6D SCFTs) share a remarkable correspondence with particular classes of homomorphisms. In this talk, we will see that this correspondence allows us to classify homomorphisms that were previously unknown in the mathematics literature and understand aspects of 6D SCFTs that were previously unknown in the physics literature. We speculate on the implications for the future study of 6D SCFTs and these group homomorphisms.
