On higher-spin theory in two dimensions

Regular Seminar Xavier Bekaert (Tours (France))

14:00 IC
room Zoom

We aim at formulating a higher-spin gravity theory around AdS2 relevant for holography. As a first step, we investigate its kinematics by identifying the low-dimensional cousins of the standard higher-dimensional structures in higher-spin gravity such as the singleton, the higher-spin symmetry algebra, the higher-rank gauge and matter fields, etc.
