Generalized Global Symmetry: Theory and Applications (Tata-Infosys Lecture Series)
by Dr. Clay Cordova (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton)
Monday, March 26, 2018 from to (Asia/Kolkata)
Generalized concepts of symmetry are useful tools for constraining the dynamics of quantum field theories. In these talks I will review the notion of higher-form global symmetry and explain some of the ways in which these generalized concepts of symmetry interplay with ordinary global symmetry. I will also apply these ideas to several concrete QFTs.
