TH String Theory Seminar

Integral Forms in String Theory and Supersymmetric Theories

by Pietro Antonio Grassi

Tuesday, 9 April 2013 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-3-006 - TH Conference Room )
I present an overview on integral forms needed for formulating a sensible integration theory on supermanifolds.
I discuss the applications of integral forms in string perturbation theory in RNS formalism and Pure Spinor formalism. I discuss the applications to
super-Calabi-Yau manifolds and topological strings and, finally, I present a novel formula for the entropy current based on integral forms in supersymmetric field theory and supergravity.
