Emmy Noether Research Group
“Gauge Fields from Strings”
This independent junior research group is funded by the Emmy Noether Programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Our research addresses current issues in the framework of the string/gauge correspondence, emphasizing their relation and qualitative reference to quantum chromodynamics as well as the “cross-fertilization” of established gauge-theoretical tools to strings and vice versa.
- Congratulations to Edoardo Vescovi for his PhD graduation with highest honors (Summa Cum Laude). The dissertation “Perturbative and non-perturbative approaches to string sigma-models in AdS/CFT’’ has been discussed on October 5th 2016 at the presence of Valentina Forini (supervisor), Jan Plefka (second referee), Radu Roiban (external referee), Rainer Sommer and Ted Masselink.
- Our recent results on string theory via lattice quantum field theory methods were presented by Valentina Forini here, a talk which obtained the GATIS Award 2016 for the best talk (by a junior speaker) at IGST 2016.
