Stringy Structure at the BPS Bound

Date and Time: Tuesday, April 13, 2021, 01:00pm -
Location: Zoom:

Speaker: Emil Martinec (University of Chicago)

Worldsheet string theory paints a picture of BPS and near-BPS states of NS5-branes. We employ a class of 1/2-BPS states having an exactly solvable worldsheet description in terms of gauged WZW models to explore the stringy properties of these states. Consequences for black hole formation will also be discussed.
