Celestial holography, twisted holography, and twistors

Abstract

I'll argue that the celestial holography program looks a lot like the twisted holography program when studied on twistor space.  The chiral algebras in celestial holography can be seen by applying techniques such as Koszul duality to holomorphic theories on twistor space. Along the way, I will discuss the role of one-loop gauge anomalies on twistor space and when they can be cancelled by a Green-Schwarz mechanism.   This is joint work in progress with Natalie Paquette.

The speaker will be on zoom, but for a more interactive experience, some of the audience will watch the seminar in L5.
