Event Details

This is a follow-up to Ergin’s lecture. I will explain how one can gauge higher-spin symmetries and thereby introduce non-linear corrections into the equations. The algebraic structures arising in such gauging are closely related to deformation quantization. If time permits, I will explain what Vasiliev equations are from purely mathematical point of view.
