LonTI: Branes and the moduli space of instantons

Regular Seminar Amihay Hanany (IC)

10:30 IC
room Zoom

This is the live session included as part of the LonTI lecture on Branes and the moduli space of instantons. Please register at https://lonti.weebly.com/registration.html to receive joining instructions for this live session which will be held via Zoom. 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. ​
