North British Mathematical Physics Seminar 41

The forty-first meeting of the North British Mathematical Physics Seminar took place on Monday 12th May 2014 at the King's Manor, University of York.

These people participated.

King's Manor. is in the centre of the city, 5 minutes' walk from the railway station. To get there, turn left out of the station, under the wall, left over the bridge over the river, then left after 100m at the crossroads (see map). The King's Manor is in Exhibition Square, to the left of the city art gallery.

Refreshments will be in the refectory and lunch in cafes nearby. To get to the refectory go through the porters' lodge and up the stone staircase towards the end of the first court on the left. Talks will be in K/133, entered either through the refectory (back of the theatre) or at the far left-hand corner of the furthest court (which brings you in at the front of the theatre).

Defect fusing rules in affine Toda field theory
The fusing rules allow us to systematically determine the properties of all the solitons in an affine Toda field theory in terms of a few basic solitons. Can we not also do the same thing with the integrable defects? In this talk I will outline my reasons for believing in the existence of defect fusing rules in the a_r affine Toda field theories.

Practical Information

These maps will get you from the railway station to King's Manor (the university-provided one doesn't show the station).

If you come by car I'm afraid you'll need to take your chances in the city centre car parks.

Limited funds are available to help with travel expenses of those with no other source of funding, especially postgraduate students and postdocs. Please book early to take advantage of the cheaper advance-purchase train fares. For how to claim please see the main NBMPS page.
