Flux Quantization in F-theory and Freed-Witten Anomaly
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractUsing M/F-theory duality, I will relate the quantization of the G-flux in M-theory to the one of the gauge flux on type IIB D7-branes prescribed by Freed-Witten anomaly cancellation. The correspondence is shown for all unitary and symplectic Kodaira singularities, by explicitly constructing appropriate 4-cycles in the M-theory elliptic fourfold, which are able to detect the global anomaly.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
