As I am currently studying for an exam about quantum field theory and string theory, I got confused about the notion of "anomalies" and how they are actually defined. Similar questions have already ...
I've read that some exceptional groups arises in the context of 'heterotic string compactification'. Could someone explain (to a person studying physics but who doesn't know string theory) what ...
I was reading this paper by West, in which it is argued that: Eleven dimensional supergravity can be described by a non-linear realisation based on the group $E\left(11\right)$ From ...
Is the superconformal algebra in five dimensions, $F(4)$, a subalgebra of the (maximal) six-dimensional superconformal algebra $OSp(8|4)$?
