On the six-dimensional origin of non-invertible symmetries

October 18, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Quantum Matter Seminar

Speaker: Michele Del Zotto (Uppsala University)

Title: On the six-dimensional origin of non-invertible symmetries

Abstract: I will present a review about recent progress in charting non-invertible symmetries for four-dimensional quantum field theories that have a six-dimensional origin. These include in particular N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories, and also a large class of N=2 supersymmetric theories which are conformal and do not have a conventional Lagrangian description (the so-called theories of “class S”). Among the main results, I will explain criteria for identifying examples of systems with intrinsic and non-intrinsic non-invertible symmetries, as well as explore their higher dimensional origin. This seminar is based on joint works with Vladimir Bashmakov, Azeem Hasan, and Justin Kaidi.
