Joint seminar series on Mathematical Physics and String Theory

Non-supersymmetric Heterotic Branes
Kantaro Ohmori (Tokyo)

The common statement that any consistent quantum gravity theory contains dynamical objects with all possible charges suggests that there are still a number of hitherto-unidentified branes in string theory. Such charges are classified by the bordism classes in the working EFT. In this talk I will describe some of those charges and then discuss plausible worldsheet descriptions of strings near the corresponding branes.
