Contact instantons and twistor geometry

Presented by:

Thursday 12th April 2012 - 16:00 to 17:00
INI Seminar Room 2
Subject of this talk is the twistor geometry discussion of a five-dimensional generalisation of the instanton equation known as the contact instanton equation. This equation was recently introduced in the context of (twisted) supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on the five-dimensional sphere. If time permits, certain extensions to higher dimensions and supersymmetric generalisations will also be presented.
