Algebra Seminar: Weekes -- An introduction to Coulomb branches

Alex Weekes (Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics) 

Monday 20 February, 12-1pm, Place: Carslaw 375 

Title: An introduction to Coulomb branches.  

This is a follow-up talk of the algebra seminar of 17 February, the following and
final talk in the series will be on 22 February.  


In follow-up talks I will delve more deeply into the construction of the algebras, as
well as their representation theory.  I will also discuss a particularly interesting
cases of Coulomb branches, corresponding to "quiver gauge theories", where the Coulomb
branch is a (generalized) slice in the affine Grassmannian of an algebraic group of ADE
