Interactions in Vasiliev's Theory, Holography and Locality

Exceptional Seminar Massimo Taronna (AEI)

13:30 IC
room H503

The aim of this talk is to extract the quadratic corrections to Fronsdal equations from Vasiliev's equations, and discuss their structure. The issue of locality in higher-spin theories will be addressed. Implications of this analysis in relation to Giombi-Yin checks of higher-spin/vector model duality will be discussed. Some of the previous puzzles will be resolved, while others will be elucidated.
