Research activities

The activity of the String Theory group at CPHT spans a diverse set of topics ranging from
mathematical aspects of string theory to applications in the field of gravitation, particle physics,
cosmology and condensed matter physics. Many of these topics have undergone major advances
thanks to the holographic gauge-gravity duality which offers a non-perturbative formulation of
string theory.

"On scale, conformal and Weyl invariance in QFT"

Abstract: Scale, conformal and Weyl invariance play a central role in Quantum Field Theories, and they are omnipresent in AdS/CFT correspondence. Through various examples I will review various issues and possible misconceptions regarding the interrelationships between these three important notions and connect them to some recent investigations.
