Global structures of 3d SUSY QFTs from geometry

Geometry and Physics Seminar

报告人 Yihan Wang Peking University

时 间 13:00-14:30 Mon

地 点 1110

Zoom 293 812 9202(PW: BIMSA)


Symmetry Topological Field Theory (SymTFT) is a novel tool which captures different choices of global structures of a QFT. In this work, we present the derivation of the SymTFT of 3d SUSY QFTs from an M-theory geometric perspective. For the applications, we focus on AdS4/CFT3 setups, including ABJ(M) theories and 3d N=2 toric CY4 constructions. Higher-form symmetries and mixed anomalies of these physical theories will be discussed. Reference: 2210.03703 w/ D. W. Gould, M. van Beest, S. Schafer-Nameki.

On the distribution problem of Selmer groups

BIMSA Topology Seminar

报告人 朱秀武

时 间 15:30-17:00 Mon

地 点 1129B

Zoom 537 192 5549(PW: BIMSA)


The distribution problem of arithmetic objects in some particular family is interesting. In this talk, we fix a rank and discuss the densities of the ideal class groups of quadratic fields and the Selmer groups of elliptic curves in some twisted families. The idea is to interpret them as ranks of the matrices of residue symbols; then study the distribution of residue symbols.

Slopes of modular form and ghost conjecture

BIMSA-YMSC Tsinghua Number Theory Seminar

报告人 Bin Zhao Capital Normal University

时 间 16:00-17:00 Tue

地 点 1118

Zoom 293 812 9202(PW: BIMSA)


In 2016, Bergdall and Pollack raised a conjecture towards the computation of the p-adic slopes of Hecke cuspidal eigenforms whose associated p-adic Galois representations satisfy the assumption that their mod p reductions become reducible when restricted to the p-decomposition group. In this talk, I will report the joint work with Ruochuan Liu, Nha Truong and Liang Xiao to prove this conjecture under mild assumptions. I will start with the statement of this conjecture and the intuition behind it. Then I will explain some strategies of our proof. If time permits, I will mention some arithmetic applications of this conjecture.

Dualities and (higher) categorical symmetries in quantum lattice models

Category and Topological Order Seminar

报告人 Clement Delcamp Ghent University

时 间 21:00-22:30 Tue

地 点 1131

Zoom 886 2323 9641


Over the past few years tremendous progress has been made in our understanding of quantum theories by interpreting symmetries in terms of topological operators. This had led to a generalization of the notion symmetry whereby operators are organized into higher algebraic structures. Prime examples of theories with generalized (categorical) symmetries are obtained by gauging finite group symmetries. In this talk I will present recent progress to realize such symmetry operators together with the corresponding duality operators in quantum lattice models. The corresponding (higher) categorical charges as well as the fate of topological sectors under dualities will also be discussed.



Module categories for SU(N)_k

BIMSA-Tsinghua Quantum Symmetry Seminar

报告人 Hans Wenzl University of California at San Diego

时 间 10:30-11:30 Wed

地 点 1131

Zoom 537 192 5549(PW: BIMSA)


Module categories of a modular tensor category are characterized by a modular invariant. Some of them can be easily found using symmetries of the fusion rings, such as orbifolds and charge conjugations. However, it is not clear how to get an explicit description of the related module categories. We propose a general description of such module categories which have already been explicitly constructed in many cases via deformations of embeddings of orthogonal or symplectic groups into unitary groups. Some of these results were obtained in joint work with Edie-Michell.

Einstein manifolds and symmetry

BIMSA-BIT Differential Geometry Seminar

报告人 Ramiro Lafuente

时 间 16:00-17:00 Wed

地 点 Online

Zoom 559 700 6085(PW: BIMSA)


In this talk we will discuss Einstein manifolds invariant under an isometric Lie group action. Our main goal is to explain the proof of the Alekseevskii conjecture (1975) for homogeneous Einstein spaces of negative Ricci curvature, recently obtained in joint work with C. Böhm (Münster). To that end, we will also present new structure results for Einstein metrics on principal bundles. We will conclude with some open questions and future directions.

Quantitative K-theory and some applications to geometry

YMSC-BIMSA Quantum Information Seminar

报告人 郭昊 Tsinghua University

时 间 09:30-10:30 Fri

地 点 清华大学近春园西楼一层报告厅

Tencent 337 8937 1456


I will try to give an accessible introduction to the ideas of quantitative K-theory for operator algebras, followed by some recent applications of this theory to differential geometry via index theory of elliptic operators. Part of this is joint work with Guoliang Yu and Zhizhang Xie.


Hao Guo obtained my PhD from the University of Adelaide in 2018 under Mathai Varghese and Hang Wang. Before coming to Tsinghua, he was a postdoc at Texas A&M working with Guoliang Yu. He is currently an Assistant Professor at Tsinghua University. His research is concerned with connections between operator algebras, geometry, topology, and group theory.
