CMSA Quantum Matter in Mathematics and Physics Seminar: A 6-year journey: from gravitational anomaly to a unified theory of generalized symmetry


View Calendar
September 8, 2023 10:00 am - 11:30 am
CMSA, 20 Garden St, G10
Address: 1 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02138 USA

Xiao-Gang Wen - MIT

Emergent symmetry can be generalized symmetry beyond (higher) group description and/or can be anomalous. I will describe a unified theory for generalized symmetry based on symmetry/topological-order correspondence. I will also discuss some applications of emergent generalized symmetry.

This seminar will be in person and virtual.
