Polygon Seminar: Algebraic methods for classical integrability

Triangular Seminar Alessandro Torrielli (Surrey)

15:00 QMW
room G.O. Jones 610

We will review a series of algebraic techniques to describe classically integrable systems, with an eye to their quantisation. The topics we shall attempt to cover will be: 1. General introduction to classical integrability and notion of Lax pair 2. Classical r-matrices and exchange relations 3. Belavin-Drinfeld theorems and classifications 4. Quantisation and elements of algebraic Bethe ansatz

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.
