    Dr. Pablo Diaz Benito (University of the Witwatersrand)

    Good morning All,

    The National Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the Centre for Theoretical Physics, School of Physics, would like to invite to its coming talk in the theoretical physics seminar series, entitled:

    "Top quark physics in the Vector Color-Octet Model"

    to be presented by Dr. Pablo Diaz Benito (University of the Witwatersrand)

    Abstract: In this talk we construct two infinite sets of self-adjoint commuting charges for a quite general CFT. They come out naturally by considering an infinite embedding chain of Lie algebras, an underlying structure that share all theories with gauge groups U(N), SO(N) and Sp(N). The generality of the construction allows us to carry all gauge groups at the same time in a unified framework, and so to understand the similarities among them. The eigenstates of these charges are restricted Schur polynomials and their eigenvalues encode the value of the correlators of two restricted Schurs. The existence of these charges singles out restricted Schur polynomials among the number of bases of orthogonal gauge invariant operators that are available in the literature.

    Dates: Tuesday, 9th September 2014
    Venue: Frank Nabarro Lecture Theatre P216
    Time: 13.20 - 14.10

    I hope you shall all be able to attend,

    Yours sincerely,
