Hybrid Conformal Field Theories


Ilarion Melnikov (Harvard and Texas A&M)



Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics & Astronomy

Event Details

Dr. Melnikov will discuss a class of limiting points in the moduli space of **d=2 (2,2)** superconformal field theories. These SCFTs arise as IR limits of “hybrid” UV theories constructed as a fibration of a Landau-Ginzburg theory over a base Kaehler geometry. A significant generalization of Landau-Ginzburg and large radius geometric limit points, the hybrid theories can be used to probe general features of **(2,2)** and **(0,2)** SCFT moduli spaces.
