Title:NEW TRENDS IN INFINITE DIMENSIONAL GROUPS IN PHYSICS
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Claude Roger, University of Lyon
Abstract:
Infinite dimensional groups and algebras are now a classical branch of mathematical physics, with their applications in hydrodynamics and the impressive developments of gauge theory. We shall explain how algebraic data about the corresponding Lie group and\or algebra can be converted into geometric or topological information, and further physical applications. We shall try to describe recent applications of this scheme to some coupling of gauge theory with hydrodynamics, known as CHD(chromohydrodynamics).
