"Closed strings and non-commutative/non-associative geometry"

Jefferson Lab, 453
Refreshments in the high energy theory coffee area, 4th floor Jefferson,
at 4:00.


"In this talk I discuss that non-commutative and non-associative geometry emerges for closed strings moving in non-geometric backgrounds. The origin of closed string non commutativity (non-associativity) is due to new closed string boundary conditions in the presence of non-geometric background fields. We will also discuss some aspects of closed string CFT in non-geometric target spaces."
