Wetting and Minimal Surfaces

Colloquium Costas Bachas (ENS Paris)

at:
16:00 KCL
room 3, south range, Strand campus
abstract:

The phenomena of capillarity and (partial) wetting have been studied for two centuries, yet they continue to be of great current interest. After a brief historical review, I will discuss some recent results on the associated minimal-surface problem. In conclusion, I will draw some analogies with problems facing present-day string theory.

Conformal defects as solution-generating symmetries for D-branes

Triangular Seminar Costas Bachas (ENS Paris)

at:
16:30 IC
room Huxley Building 503
abstract:

Using the example of WZW D-branes, I will explain how loop operators, corresponding to bulk conformal defects, generate new consistent D-branes from old ones. I will comment on possible extensions to more general geometries.
