Generalised geometry and E_11

Regular Seminar Peter West (King's College)

13:30 IC
room H503

We will review the conjecture that the Kac-Moody Symmetry E_11 is an underlying symmetry of strings and branes. We will show that it leads to a generalised geometry involving an extension of our usual formulation of space-time.
