(19.10.) Exceptional geometry for affine and other groups
19.10.2017 at 16:15
Exceptional geometry is an attempt to combine the geometric diffeomorphisms and matter gauge transformations in gravity-matter theories into a single geometric structure. I will review recent results associated with a 2+9 split of maximal supergravity where the affine symmetry group E9 plays a central role. The results also provide a general formula that is applicable to many other cases.
