IFT Seminar Room/Red Room
In this particular occasion the SPLE-Club will take place in the Red Seminar room. The plan is
11:30 - 12:00 discussion of papers
12:00 - 13:00 seminar by Y-H. He "Calabi-Yau Volumes and Reflexive Polytopes",
We study various geometrical quantities for Calabi-Yau varieties realized as cones over Gorenstein Fano varieties, obtained as toric varieties from reflexive polytopes in various dimensions. We concentrate on reflexive polytopes up to dimension 4 and calculate the minimized volume of the Sasaki-Einstein base of the corresponding Calabi-Yau cone. By doing so we conjecture new bounds for the Sasaki-Einstein volume with respect to many topological quantities of the corresponding toric varieties. We give interpretations about these volume bounds in the context of associated field theories via the AdS/CFT correspondence.
Based on joint work with R.-K. Seong and S.-T. Yau.
ERC-SPLE organizes a bi-weekly journal club, the SPLE-club, in which IFT members and visitors interested in string model building and related topics gather to discuss recent papers, new results, and enjoy interesting expositions by participants.
