Speaker: Paul Green (UMd)

Abstract: We review the famous paper of Chevalley and Eilenberg on Lie algebra cohomology in Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 63 (1948), http://www.ams.org/journals/tran/1948-063-01/S0002-9947-1948-0024908-8/S0002-9947-1948-0024908-8.pdf

with a view toward understanding supersymmetric generalizations.

Speaker: Paul Green

Abstract: We will try to discuss how one could extend the work of Chavelley-Eilenberg to the case of supermanifolds.

Abstract: We will discuss the supersymmetric harmonic oscillator in detail, in an attempt to arrive at a mathematical theory of supersymmetry that includes the most important physical examples.

Speaker: Daniel Marino-Johnson

Abstract: We will begin studying Lott's paper "The Geometry of Supergravity Torsion Constraints", arXiv:math/0108125. For more details see Comm. Math. Phys. 133 (1990), 563-615, though the arxiv paper is shorter and easier to read.

Speaker: Jim Gates, UMD

Abstract: We'll explain the geometric setup (using supermanifolds) for 3D supergravity (in flat space).

Speaker: Matt Calkins

Abstract: Further discussion of Lott's paper "The Geometry of Supergravity Torsion Constraints", arXiv:math/0108125, focusing on specific examples: U(n) structures and supergravity in 3D.

Speaker: Stephen Randall

Abstract: I will talk on differential forms in superspace, as they come up in my undergraduate thesis, arxiv:1412.4448.

Where: PHY 1117

Speaker: Stephen Randall and William Linch

Abstract: We'll discuss how (super)Lie algebra cohomology makes it possible to organize all the Bianchi identities for superforms, which previously didn't appear to follow any particular pattern. Reference: arXiv:1412.4686. (postponed because of snow from 3/5)
