Revisiting long strings in c=1 string theory

Triangular Seminar Xi Yin (Harvard)

16:30 City U.
room B104

I will discuss FZZT branes and long strings in c=1 string theory, and the dual description of the latter in non-singlet sectors of the matrix quantum mechanics. I will present highly nontrivial evidences for the duality at the level of perturbative scattering amplitudes, and discuss implications on black holes in c=1 string theory and their matrix model duals.
