The first recorded lecture of the London Theory Institute for PhD Students. Link to recording and problems (to be solved in live Zoom session next Monday) as well as registration details at https://lonti.weebly.com/ and https://youtu.be/CGDNipeuVEs Instantons, or solutions to the self dual Yang Mills (SDYM) equations are well known solutions, introduced in the mid 70s and played a role in a host of applications in QFT and String Theory. This talk will show a simple brane construction which allows the computation of the moduli space of solutions to the SDYM equations, introduce the student to the world of quivers, and demonstrate simple computations which allow evaluations of these moduli spaces.
