Journal Club Schedule: Spring 2013
In every meeting we will spend the first 10-15 minutes talking about new
papers on the arXiv that people found interesting (we would also like to
hear about recent conferences that people attended). Then one member of
the group, or a visitor, will present a recent paper. The tentative
schedule is as follows:
Lisa Glaser (NBI): Causal Sets and the Cosmological Constant. Based on
Timothy Budd (NBI): Trees and spatial topology change in 2d CDT.
Piotr Tourkine (Saclay): A non-renormalisation theorem in heterotic
string theory and some of its consequences in N=4 supergravity. Based on
Ara Martirosyan (NBI): Three-point Functions in the AdS_4/CFT_3
Correspondence. Based on arXiv:1211.1359.
Konstantin Zarembo (Nordita). Based on arxiv:1302.6968.
Jelle Hartong (NBI): Introducing Subtracted Geometry. Based on
