Title:T-duality for Langlands dual groups
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Calder Daenzer, Penn State University
Abstract:
I will give a quick tour of T-duality, followed by a quick tour of Langland’s duality. The first duality is a relation between a pair of principal torus bundles with NS-flux, while the second is the relation between a pair of Lie groups whose root and co-root data is interchanged. A priori, these two have nothing to do with one another, but I will describe how in many cases Langlands may be realized as a T-dualization. This is joint work with Erik Van Erp.
