Some lessons from/for Supergravity in AdS4/CFT3

Regular Seminar Costantin Bachas (ENS Paris)

14:00 QMW
room G O Jones 610

I will first review the AdS4/SCFT3 correspondence with N=4 supersymmetry. I will then focus on two special aspects which are important in exploring the string landscape: (1) The existence of N=2 moduli and their fate in gauged supergravity; (2) Special degeneration limits for which the low-energy limit is a theory of bigravity or massive gravity.
