Exploring Moonshine in String Theory
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Joan Camps.
The term “moonshine” was introduced in the 70’s to describe a mysterious relation between automorphic functions and representations of finite groups, two distinct and fundamental concepts in mathematics. Recently, a novel type of moonshine phenomenon, named “umbral moonshine”, was discovered. Evidence suggests that umbral moonshine enjoys a close connection to string theory compactified on K3 surfaces. In this talk I will report on the progress of this moonshine exploration from a string theoretic perspective.
This talk is part of the Wednesday HEP-GR Colloquium series.
