Brown and Maryland

Location

University of Pennsylvania

DRL 4C2

Please note the earlier than usual time and the unusual room. Jim will also give the Elon Musk talk, same day at 5pm.

While a fundamental representation theory for compact Lie
algebras was settled by the work of Cartan (i.e. weights and
roots), no analogous conceptual structure exists for space-
time supersymmetry algebras.  Progress in this direction
based on the graph theory concept of "adinkras" will be pre-
sented in this talk.
