Ultraviolet and infrared divergences in string theory

Date: Monday, May 2, 2016

Time: 16.45 h (followed by an apéro)

Location: ETH Hönggerberg, building HPV, lecture hall G 4

Superstring theory is known to be free from ultraviolet divergences but suffers from the usual infrared divergences that occur in quantum field theories. After briefly reviewing the origin of ultraviolet finiteness of superstring theory we describe recent progress towards the understanding of infrared divergences in superstring theory.
