North British Mathematical Physics Seminar 47

The forty-seventh meeting of the North British Mathematical Physics Seminar will take place on

Thursday 23rd June 2016 at the King's Manor, University of York.

Note: these people participated.

The 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 fountain and 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).


Balt van Rees (Durham)
The bootstrap and non-conformal Quantum Field Theories

Towards the classification of trigonometric reflection matrices
Veronika Breunholder (Edinburgh)
New black holes with lens space topology
In this talk I will present the construction of a new supersymmetric, asymptotically flat black hole solution in the context of five-dimensional minimal supergravity. The solution has an event horizon which is of lens space topology L(3,1). It carries an electric charge, two angular momenta, as well as magnetic dipole charges related to regions of non-trivial topology outside the horizon.

and Pub: probably The Hole in the Wall.

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.
