String Theory as a Spin Chain

Regular Seminar Alessandro Torrielli (Surrey)

15:00 City U.
room B103

In recent years, the discovery of integrable sectors of string theory has expanded the range of models which are solvable by the techniques of the Bethe ansatz and by the general theory of quantum groups. In this talk, we will give an overview of the S-matrix theory involved in the solution of these models, with mention to the problem of massless particles emerging in a particular instance of the AdS/CFT correspondence.
