One-dimensional solutions of M-theory
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractIt has been argued that the generalised Kac-Moody algebras E11 and E10 encode the symmetries of M-theory. One may wonder whether a conjecture relating two imperfectly understood constructions can be put to good use. This talk will be a pedagogical introduction to a technique on the Kac-Moody side that reconstructs well-known supergravity solutions, albeit smeared down to one-dimension. The solutions emerge from a small corner of E11 but the technique may be applied to a much larger sector of E11 and used to propose exotic M-theory solutions.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
