To date, I have been working on topics in twodimensional conformal field theories. These theories are covariant under local anglepreserving transformations. They play a role in statistical mechanics and in string theory. I have been interested in conformal field theories defined on a surface with a boundary; in string theory, this describes an excitation of a Dbrane. There are situations in which the conformal symmetry is slightly broken, and the theory is subject to change under renormalization.
The renormalization process is presumably related to timedependent processes in string theory, such as the decay of Dbranes or a change in spacetime itself. Here at IPMU, I intend to study topics in this direction.
