Correspondence between E10 and supergravity
  OKC/Nordita High-Energy Physics Theory seminar

Monday 05 May 2008
from 15:30 to 16:30
at CoPS group room (A5:1041)
Speaker : Axel Kleinschmidt (Free University Brussels)
Abstract : The motivation and basic properties of the conjectured correspondence between supergravity and E10 will be reviewed. Starting from the cosmological billiards picture a D=1 sigma model based on an E10 coset was proposed by Damour, Henneaux and Nicolai to be an equivalent description of the D=11 supergravity dynamics. I will present old and new evidence for this conjecture and demonstrate how to use it to construct cosmological solutions.
