Counting Abelian Orbifolds

Regular Seminar Amihay Hanany (Imperial)

14:00 QMW
room 602

Brane Tilings give a large class of SCFT's in 3+1 and 2+1 dimensions. In this talk I will discuss several attempts to classify all such models. Special attention will be devoted to the class of Abelian orbifolds of C3 and of C4. Statistical properties of these models can be derived using some techniques in crystallography and in number theory.
