M-branes and String structures

Presented by: 
H Sati University of Pittsburgh
Date: 
Thursday 12th January 2012 - 11:30 to 12:30
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
I will describe the relation of the C-field to String structures, which are essentially Spin structures on loop space, and explain how these structures capture certain geometric and topological aspects of M-branes.
