Fractons and Chern-Simons Theory

Date and Time: Tuesday, September 28, 2021, 02:30pm -
Location: Zoom:

Speaker: John McGreevy (University of California San Diego)

Abstract: After discussing some reasons that fractons are interesting, I will talk about a version of dimensional deconstruction that produces 3+1d fracton phases. This construction provides examples beyond those known from solvable lattice models, and a possible route to realize them in experiments.

Based on 2010.08917 with Xiuqi Ma, Wilbur Shirley, Meng Cheng, Michael Levin and Xie Chen.
