  1. 1. Aspects of QFT with boundaries and D-branes

    Author : Maxim Zabzine; Constantin Bachas; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : Modern string theory is a rich framework which goes beyond standard quantum field theory. There is a belief that at low energies string theory reduces to the Standard Model and Einstein's gravity. In the last years we have learned that there exist different descriptions of the same physics, containing both strings and other extended objects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Going Round in Circles : From Sigma Models to Vertex Algebras and Back

    Author : Joel Ekstrand; Maxim Zabzine; Anton Alekseev; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chiral de Rham complex; Conformal field theory; Poisson vertex algebra; Sigma model; String theory; Vertex algebra; Theoretical Physics; Teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, we investigate sigma models and algebraic structures emerging from a Hamiltonian description of their dynamics, both in a classical and in a quantum setup. More specifically, we derive the phase space structures together with the Hamiltonians for the bosonic two-dimensional non-linear sigma model, and also for the N=1 and N=2 supersymmetric models.

  3. 3. Dynamics of Discrete Curves with Applications to Protein Structure

    Author : Shuangwei Hu; Antti J. Niemi; Maxim Zabzine; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Frenet equations; integrable model; folded proteins; discrete curves; Fysik; Physics; Physical Biology; Fysikalisk biologi;

    Abstract : In order to perform a specific function, a protein needs to fold into the proper structure. Prediction the protein structure from its amino acid sequence has still been unsolved problem. The main focus of this thesis is to develop new approach on the protein structure modeling by means of differential geometry and integrable theory. READ MORE

  4. 4. Twisting and Gluing : On Topological Field Theories, Sigma Models and Vertex Algebras

    Author : Johan Källén; Maxim Zabzine; Mathias Blau; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Topological field theory; Chern-Simons theory; Contact geometry; Sigma models; Poisson vertex algebras; Vertex algebras; String theory; Theoretical Physics; Teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of two parts, which can be read separately. In the first part we study aspects of topological field theories. We show how to topologically twist three-dimensional N=2 supersymmetric Chern-Simons theory using a contact structure on the underlying manifold. READ MORE

  5. 5. Twisting it up the Quantum Way : On Matrix Models, q-deformations and Supersymmetric Gauge Theories

    Author : Rebecca Lodin; Maxim Zabzine; Taro Kimura; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Matrix models; Virasoro constraints; Virasoro algebra; W algebra; q-deformations; Supersymmetric gauge theories; Theoretical Physics; Teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : The mathematical framework which quantum field theory constitutes has been very successful in describing nature. As an extension of such a framework, the idea of supersymmetry was introduced. This greatly simplified the mathematical description of the theories, making them more tractable. READ MORE
