Geometry/Physics Seminar

Title: The Equivariant elliptic cohomology and fibered WZW models
Speaker: Matthew Ando
Speaker Info: UIUC
Brief Description:
Special Note:

I'll describe how string orientation of elliptic cohomology looks from the point of view of Grojnowski's equivariant elliptic cohomology. Then I'll describe some other orientations and rigid genera related to representations of loop groups. I'll relate these to "fibered WZW models" described by Jacques Distler and Eric Sharpe, which seem to offer a physical context for equivariant elliptic cohomology.
