High Energy Theory Seminar - IAS - Dieter Luest, Max-Planck-Institute for Physics, Munich - Closed Strings and Non-Commutative/Non-Associative Ge
In this talk I discuss that non-commutative and non-associative geometry emerges for closed stringsmoving in non-geometric backgrounds. The origin of closed string non-commutativity (non-associativity)is due to new closed string boundary conditions in the presence of non-geometric background fields. We will also discusssome aspects of closed string CFT in non-geometric target spaces.
