Symmetry and Emergence

Tuesday October 31, 2017
2:00 pm

 Presenter:  Group Discussion
 Series:  Nuclear, Particle, Astroparticle and Cosmology (NUPAC) Seminars
 Abstract:  We will discuss the paper "Symmetry and Emergence" (e-Print: arXiv:1710.01791 [hep-th]) by E. Witten that appeared recently. It discusses how in a modern understanding, global symmetries are approximate and gauge symmetries may be emergent. It is based on Witten's lecture at the April, 2016 meeting of the American Physical Society in Salt Lake City, Utah.
