SEMINAR: Tijana Radenković

You are cordially invited to the seminar of the Group for Gravitation, Particles and Fields of the Institute of Physics Belgrade which will be held on Friday, 25 May 2018 at 11:00 in hall 360 of the Institute of Physics Belgrade.

The talk entitled:

“Action for scalar, Dirac and gauge fields as 3-BF action with constraints”

will be given by Tijana Radenković.

ABSTRACT:

First, we will remind you of 2-BF model of guantum gravity –
2-categorical generalization of BF model and the notion of 2-group
(which is equivalent to crossed module) necessary for constructing it.
Then, we will see how by considering crossed module for
G=SO(3,1)xU(1)xSU(2)xSU(3) instead of G=SO(3,1) we obtain equations of
motion for gauge field coupled to gravity known from EC theory. Finally,
we will show how by using the notion of 3-group one can write the action
for gravity coupled to scalar and Dirac fields as 3-BF action with
constraints.
