CMSA Quantum Matter/Quantum Field Theory Seminar: Nonperturbative anomaly inflow for fermions and p-form fields

Kazuya Yonekura - Tohoku University

I will talk about a nonperturbative formulation of chiral fermions and chiral (self-dual) p-form fields, in terms of massive theories in one-higher dimensions. The introduction of the higher dimensional bulk is unavoidable due to the existence of anomalies, and I discuss the modern understanding of anomalies, which appears very naturally in our formulation of chiral theories.
