Yangian Symmetry and Integrability of Planar N=4 SYM (Niklas Beisert, ETH Zürich)

15.12.2017 13:30

This talk is about integrability of Planar N=4 super Yang-Mills theory. We present a concrete notion of the corresponding Yangian symmetry in this model, show that it holds true, and discuss the (perturbative) implications for correlation functions and Wilson loops.

The first part of the talk will give an overview of the physics setup motivate the study. The second part will focus on the representation of the Yangian quantum algebra on the fields of this 4D gauge theory or polynomials thereof. An important feature of this representation related to gauge symmetry is that it does not preserve the degree of field monomial it acts upon.
