Non-abelian discrete gauge symmetries in string theory

Thursday 28th June 2012 - 15:10 to 15:45
INI Seminar Room 1
I will discuss the realization of non-abelian discrete gauge symmetries in field theory and string theory, and present several classes of string models exhibiting non-abelian discrete gauge symmetries. In models of magnetized/intersecting D-branes, the discrete symmetries impose non-trivial constraints on Yukawa couplings, and correspond to interesting flavour symmetries in MSSM-like models.
