GRASP Seminar: General Relativity on manifolds with corners in the BV-BFV formalism.

Seminar | October 24 | 12-1 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Giovanni Canepa, University of Zurich

 Department of Mathematics

This week, the GRASP seminar hosts a talk by Giovanni Canepa (Uni Zurich) on "General Relativity on manifolds with corners in the BV-BFV formalism". Abstract: The BV-BFV formalism allows to treat field theories and their symmetries in a coherent way on manifolds with boundaries. It is possible to iterate the construction on manifolds with corners. We will introduce the formalism and the application of it to General Relativity and discuss the recent progresses in the Einstein-Hilbert and Palatini-Cartan-Holst formalisms. (This is a joint work with A. Cattaneo and M. Schiavina.)
