Anomaly Inflow and topological mass terms

Date and Time: Tuesday, October 27, 2020, 03:00pm -
Location: Zoom

Speaker: Ibrahima Bah (Johns Hopkins University)

In this talk I will discuss the role of topological mass terms in anomaly inflow.  I will consider QFTs obtained from brane setups in supergravity and discuss how the presence of bulk topological mass terms are responsible for several interesting features of the anomaly for the QFTs.  In particular I will discuss how these terms encode the anomalies for discrete symmetries.
