prof. Amihay Hanany (Imperial College London):
Branes, gauge theories, and magnetic quivers

Branes are well studied objects in the area of string theory - for several decades. Likewise are supersymmetric gauge theories - possibly longer. Both topics have been at the focus of my research interests for many years. In this talk we will discuss the general aspects of brane configurations with gauge theories on their world volume. The aim will be to give a notion of magnetic quivers and show how they solve long standing problems of non perturbation nature in supersymmetric field theories.
