Quantum Field theory, String Theory and Twistor Theory, towards a perturbative duality

Regular Seminar Ronald Reid-Edwards (City University London)

15:00 City U.
room Ronald Reid-Edwards

In this seminar, I will give an introduction to a series of ideas which suggest that many aspects of quantum fied theories, including the celebrated N=4 super Yang-Mills, may be most simply understood in terms of a dual theory in twistor space. No previous knowledge of string theory or twistor theory will be assumed.
