Algebra Seminar

Symmetries of the squashed sigma models

Matsumoto

Friday 14th September, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 175

Speaker:

Takuya Matsumoto (University of Sydney)

Title:

Symmetries of the squashed sigma models

Abstract:

It is known that the Yangian and the quantum affine algebra are the infinite dimensional algebras which belong to the rational and trigonometric type respectively. In this talk, I will explain that these two different kinds of symmetries are simultaneously realized in a certain two dimensional classical field theory with the target space squashed three sphere, which is a one parameter deformation of the three sphere.

This is based on the collaboration work arXiv:1203.3400 and arXiv:1201.3058 with Io Kawaguchi and Kentaroh Yoshida (Kyoto University).
