Regular Seminar Federico Bonetti (Johns Hopkins University)
at: 13:15 room S2.29  abstract: A large class of 4d SCFTs can be engineered by wrapping a stack of M5branes on a compact space, possibly with defects. ‘t Hooft anomalies are crucial observables for such theories, which often do not admit any known Lagrangian description. Building on the seminal work of Freed, Harvey, Minasian, Moore, we develop systematic tools for extracting the ‘t Hooft anomalies of a geometrically engineered 4d theory using anomaly inflow from the Mtheory bulk. We exemplify our tools by studying a class of setups with M5branes probing a C^2/Z_2 singularity. We argue that these setups define 4d SCFTs which are dual to a class of AdS_5 solutions—first discussed by Gauntlett, Martelli, Sparks, Waldram—whose field theory interpretation has been a longstanding puzzle.

Regular Seminar Francesco Benini (SISSA, Trieste)
at: 13:15 room S2.49  abstract: AdS/CFT provides a consistent nonperturbative definition of quantum gravity in asymptotically AdS space. Black holes should correspond to ensembles of states in the boundary field theory. By analyzing the superconformal index of 4d N=4 SU(N) SuperYangMills, with the help of a new Bethe Ansatz type formula, we are able to exactly reproduce the BekensteinHawking entropy of BPS black holes in AdS5 x S5. The large N limit exhibits many competing contributions and Stokes phenomena, hinting at new physics. 
Regular Seminar Guilherme Leite Pimentel (University of Amsterdam)
at: 13:15 room S2.49  abstract: In flat space, four point scattering amplitudes at weak coupling can be fully determined from Lorentz symmetry, unitarity and causality. The resulting scattering amplitude depends on model details only through coupling constants and the particle content of the theory. I will show how the analogous story works in the case of inflationary fluctuations. We found explicit expressions for inflationary three and fourpoint functions, whose shapes depend on the field content of the theory, and do not depend on the specific inflationary model, as long as the fluctuations minimally break de Sitter symmetry. This ``cosmological bootstrap” is a first step towards classifying all possible shapes of primordial nongaussianity, which can be searched for in experimental data. 
Regular Seminar Edoardo Lauria (University of Durham)
at: 13:15 room S2.49  abstract: A fourdimensional abelian gauge theory can be coupled to a 3d CFT with a U(1) symmetry living on a boundary. This coupling gives rise to a continuous family of boundary conformal field theories (BCFTs) parametrized by the gauge coupling \tau and by the choice of the CFT in the decoupling limit. Upon performing an ElectricMagnetic duality in the bulk and going to the decoupling limit in the new frame, one finds a different 3d CFT on the boundary, related to the original one by Witten's SL(2, Z) action. In particular the cusps on the real \tau axis correspond to the 3d gauging of the original CFT. We study general properties of this family of BCFTs. We show how to express bulk one and twopoint functions, and the hemisphere freeenergy, in terms of the twopoint functions of the boundary electric and magnetic currents. Finally, upon assuming particlevortex duality (and its fermionic version), we show how to turn this machinery into a powerful computational tool to study 3d gauge theories. 
Regular Seminar Marika Taylor (University of Southampton)
at: 13:15 room S1.04  abstract: We show that supersymmetry is anomalous in N = 1 superconformal quantum field theories (SCFTs) with an anomalous Rsymmetry. This anomaly was originally found in holographic theories: here we show that this anomaly is present in general and demonstrate it for the massless superconformal WessZumino model via a one loop computation of fourpoint functions of two supercurrents with either Rcurrents. In fact, the WessZumino consistency conditions together with the standard Rsymmetry anomaly imply the existence of the anomaly. We outline the implications of this anomaly.

at: 15:15 room K6.63  abstract: KCL TPPC Seminar Abstract: Black hole (BH) mergers can be viewed as cosmological “scattering experiments” resulting in an excited BH, which then decays to its ground state by emitting gravitational waves (GW). I will present general arguments, based on fundamental physics principles, as to why we should expect additional quantum ringdown modes to those predicted by general relativity. Then, I will discuss the spectrum of the predicted ringdown modes, the resulting emitted GW and the prospects for their detection in LIGO/VIRGO.

at: 11:00 room Bush House S 2.01  abstract: I will first review the BatalinVilkovisky formalism and its mathematical foundations with an emphasis on higher algebraic structures and classical field theories. I will then move on and discuss recent developments in formulating higher gauge theory with Lie quasigroupoids as gauge structure. Finally, I will explain how all these ideas can be combined with those of twistor theory to formulate maximally superconformal gauge theories in four and six dimensions by means of quasiisomorphisms.

at: 11:50 room Bush House S 2.01  abstract: I will talk about the formalism of supersymmetric localization in supergravity using the deformed BRST algebra defined in the presence of a supersymmetric background. The gravitational functional integral localizes onto the cohomology of a global supercharge Q_{eq}, obeying (Q_{eq})^{2}=H, where H is a global symmetry of the background. This construction naturally produces a twisted version of supergravity whenever supersymmetry can be realized offshell. I will present the details of the twisted graviton multiplet and ghost fields for the superconformal formulation of fourdimensional N=2 supergravity. As an application of our formalism, we systematize the computation of the exact quantum entropy of supersymmetric black holes. In particular, we compute the oneloop determinant of the Qeq deformation operator for the offshell fluctuations of the Weyl multiplet around the AdS_{2}×S^{2} saddle.
