Physics Group Meeting - IAS - Discussion group led by Masahito Yamazaki, IAS
Description: I will discuss the discrete Liouville theory and its connection with cluster algebras, Teichmuller theory and supersymmetric gauge theories.
The version of discrete Liouville I discuss has been formulated by many papers by Faddeev, Volkov, Takhajan, Kashaev. A good starting point is:
Faddeev, Kashaev, Volkov hep-th/0006156
Faddeev, Kashaev hep-th/0201049
I will mention cluster algebras, see e.g. section 2.1 of Terashima, Y
If I have time I will discuss the connection with supersymmetric gauge theories, following Y 1203.5784
Some people might be more interested in the connection with chaos:

Astroparticle Physics Seminar: Phillip Urquijo, Univ. of Melbourne
“Searching for New Phenomena at the Intensity Frontier”
In February of this year the intensity frontier SuperKEKB e+e- collider, located at the KEK laboratory in Tsukuba, came online with its “first turns”, a major milestone in preparing for collisions in 2017.
The Belle II detector, located at the SuperKEKB interaction point, will be used to probe
flavour changing processes of beauty quarks, charm quarks and τ leptons produced in e+ecollisions to solve some of the most outstanding puzzles in particle physics: the cosmo-logical matter-antimatter asymmetry, the striking mass and coupling hierarchy of elemen-tary particles, and how neutrinos got a mass. New interactions and yet unseen particles must exist to explain these phenomena.
In this seminar, I shall discuss the physics driving the Belle II experiment at SuperKEKB, and what we hope to achieve by charting the intensity frontier.
