Hitchin systems, spin chains from 3d mirror symmetry

Exceptional Seminar Peter Koroteev (Perimeter)

14:00 IC
room H503

I will discuss some interesting connections between quantum and classical integrable systems (e.g. Hitchin system vs. quantum spin chains) in the context of 3 dimensional quiver gauge theories. Gauge theory dualities (Mirror symmetry, Seiberg duality) have direct counterparts on the integrability side.
