Introduction to orientifolds
  KTH/Nordita/SU seminar in Theoretical Physics [before December 2013]

Wednesday 05 December 2007
from 11:00 to 12:00
at FA31
Speaker : Marcus Berg (SU)
Abstract : I will introduce a few ideas and concepts around the theme of "orientifolds", a generalization of manifolds to the point of view of unoriented extended objects probing them.
This provides an intriguing connection between spacetime geometry, the geometry of the extended object, and the geometry of moduli space.

I will speculate why the recent application of string theory techniques in condensed matter physics may evolve to involve orientifold techniques.
