Postgraduate Seminar

Welcome to the webpage for the Warwick Mathematics Postgraduate Seminar.

This term, all talks will be held in B3.02 at 12 noon on Wednesday (except when stated otherwise). The seminar will take a hybrid format, so that students can join us virtually if they have (or prefer) too. There will be `coffee afternoon' at 1p.m immediately after the seminar, for those of us who still enjoy socialising.

Organisers: Lucas Lavoyer and Sunny Sood.

Term 1 2021-22 - The seminars are held on Wednesday 12:00 - 13:00 in B3.02 - Mathematics Institute.

Week 1: Wednesday 6th October

Hollis Williams - Noncommutative Geometry and CFTs

We give the abstract definition for QFTs and CFTs and then outline the applications of spectral triples (data sets which encode noncommutative geometries) in theoretical physics and field theory. We discuss an interesting connection between spectral triples and two-dimensional superconformal field theories which is relevant for string theory.
