Seminar January 14: M. Henneaux

On January 14 we will have a seminar by

Marc Henneaux (ULB & Collège de France)

Title: Asymptotic symmetries of electromagnetism and gravity: a Hamiltonian study

Abstract: The asymptotic symmetries of gravity and electromagnetism are remarkably rich.    The talk will explain the asymptotic structure of these theories in the asymptotically flat case by making central use of the Hamiltonian formalism.  In particular, how the relevant infinite-dimensional asymptotic symmetry groups emerge at spatial infinity will be discussed. Extensions to supergravity will be briefly touched upon.
