Quiver Gauge Theories and the Moduli Space of Instantons

Exceptional Seminar Amihay Hanany (Imperial)

16:30 City U.
room Birley

Instantons appear in many problems of theoretical physics. Quiver gauge theories are a rising subject due to its natural emergence in perturbative open string theories. The talk will discuss features of these two topics and how one can use quiver gauge theories to solve the long standing problem of finding the moduli space of k G instantons on C^2, where G is any simple gauge group, including the non-simply laced cases.
