  1. 1. Strings, Branes and Non-trivial Space-times

    Author : Jonas Björnsson; Stephen Hwang; Ioannis Bakas; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; String theory; Membranes; BRST; p -branes; p -branes; Non-compact backgrounds; WZNW-model; No-ghost theorem; Unitarity; Hermitian symmetric spaces; CFT; Physics; Fysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with different aspects of string and /p/-brane theories. One of the motivations for string theory is to unify the forces in nature and produce a quantum theory of gravity. /p/-branes and related objects arise in string theory and are related to a non-perturbative definition of the theory.

  2. 2. Exact Results in Supersymmetric Field Theories : A dissertation on the defect and deformed

    Author : Erik Widen; Konstantin Zarembo; Nikolay Gromov; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; AdS CFT correspondence; integrability; localization; supersymmetric deformations; Quantum Spectral Curve; defect CFT; one-point functions; Theoretical Physics; Teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : Quantum field theories (QFTs) are the most precise descriptions of the physical reality that humanity has found. Yet exact predictions are often missing as most computations are notoriously difficult to carry out. One generally resorts to perturbation theory which immediately limits the regime of validity.

  3. 3. A classifying algebra for CFT boundary conditions

    Author : Carl Stigner; Jürgen Fuchs; Alexei Semikhatov; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Boundary conditions; Conformal field theory; Factorization constraints; Modular tensor categories; TFT-construction; Mathematical physics; Matematisk fysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Conformal field theories (CFT) constitute an interesting class of twodimensionalquantum field theories, with applications in string theoryas well as condensed matter physics. The symmetries of a CFT can beencoded in the mathematical structure of a conformal vertex algebra. READ MORE

  4. 4. On string integrability : A journey through the two-dimensional hidden symmetries in the AdS/CFT dualities

    Author : Valentina Giangreco Marotta Puletti; Konstantin Zarembo; Gleb Arutyunov; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; String Theory; AdS-CFT correspondence; Integrable Field theory; Sigma models; S-matrix; Factorized Scattering; Physics; Fysik; Mathematical physics; Matematisk fysik; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : One of the main topics in the modern String Theory are the conjectured string/gauge (AdS/CFT) dualities. Proving such conjectures is extremely difficult since the gauge and string theory perturbative regimes do not overlap. In this perspective, the discovery of infinitely many conserved charges, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Topics on D-branes and Holography

    Author : Mikael Smedbäck; Joseph Minahan; Anton Alekseev; Paolo Di Vecchia; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Theoretical physics; theoretical physics; string theory; D-branes; dualities; AdS CFT; spin chains; Bethe ansatz; boundary conformal field theory; conformal bootstrap; tachyon condensation; string field theory; loop quantum gravity; black holes; area spectrum; Hawking radiation; holographic principle; Teoretisk fysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : We discuss various aspects of D-branes in string theory and holography in string theory and loop quantum gravity.One way to study D-branes is from a microscopic perspective, using conformal field theory techniques. For example, we investigate the question of how D-branes can be introduced into orbifolded theories. READ MORE
