ENFPC XXVII, SW map, dualities and E. Witten tomorrow.
I completed my registration on XXVII ENFPC (National meeting on particle and fields physics), a traditional Brazilian meeting already announced in Christine’s blog. This year’s meeting will be held in Águas de Lindóia, SP, a near city for the physicists from São Paulo, we from Rio have to travel more than the usual (I hope this time the bus’ air-conditioned will work and the trip will take less than 10 hours)!
I wish I already have exposed here more details of mine thesis and research (including a tentative explanation for my friends who are not physicists), I will again postpone that. In this link (PDF) you find an “extended abstract” of what I pretend to present in that meeting. The title is 3D and 4D Noncommutative electromagnetic dualities and the role of the slowly varying fields limit. Comments?
Tomorrow Edward Witten will present a speech on the expansion of the universe (details here or here). I’ll try to be there. Unfortunately I lost Lisa Randall‘s presentation yesterday and I could not attend the Young Researchers Symposium (see also Sum Over Histories). Moreover I almost don’t have time to write in this blog, I’ll stop now. Thesis, thesis, thesis…
