Anomalies RG-Flows and the a-Theorem in Six-Dimensions

Triangular Seminar Clay Cordova (IAS)

15:00 KCL
room K6.29 Anatomy Theater

I will describe recent progress in computing Weyl anomalies in strongly-coupled six-dimensional field theories. Along the way we will prove an a-theorem quantifying the loss of degrees of freedom along renormalization group flows.
