Title: Black Hole Entropy and the Growth of Cohomology

Speaker: Prof. Nick Dorey

Affiliation: University of Cambridge, UK 英国剑桥大学

Time: 16:00-17:00, Tuesday, 24th October, 2023 (UTC+8, Beijing Time)

Venue: Zoom Meeting (ID: 385 442 0225; Passcode: yauc)

Inviter: Tadashi Okazaki


I will review our recent work on counting BPS states in superconformal quantum mechanics. The main application is providing evidence for a holographic duality between certain SCQM models and Ultra-Spinning supersymmetric black holes in AdS. Our work also leads to new results characterising the asymptotic growth of the dimensions of the cohomology of the ADHM moduli space of Yang-Mills instantons.


Nick Dorey is a professor of the DAMTP, University of Cambridge. His research is concerned with gauge field theories and string theory. He is particularly interested in supersymmetric gauge theories and their remarkable duality properties. His recent work focuses on the emergence of integrability, both in gauge theory and string theory, in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence.


The seminar will be broadcasted online by Zoom.

Interested people are free to join, without registration in advance.
