DESCRIPTION:Title: Ove
rview of Classical and Quantum Integrability in Four Dimensions\nby Ro
land Bittleston (Perimeter Institute) as part of Nagoya Math-Phys Seminar\
n\n\nAbstract\nThis talk will review recent progress by a number of groups
in understanding classical and quantum integrable models in four dimensio
ns. This has been achieved by exploiting twistor methods. After a short in
troduction to twistors\, I will introduce some of the simplest examples of
4d theories with twistor uplifts: self-dual Yang-Mills and the 4d WZW mod
el. I then plan to touch on a number of topics including: the connection t
o 4d Chern-Simons theory\, quantization of these theories on twistor space
\, their hidden symmetry algebras (also known as celestial chiral algebras
) and finally the twistor string.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Cla
ssical and Quantum Integrability in Self-Dual Gravity\nby Roland Bittl
eston (Perimeter Institute) as part of Nagoya Math-Phys Seminar\n\n\nAbstr
act\nThis talk will concentrate on an intriguing example of a 4d integrabl
e theory: self-dual gravity. I will explain how its classical integrabilit
y is realised in the existence of an infinite dimensional hidden symmetry
algebra\, or celestial chiral algebra. This governs the universal holomorp
hic surface defect which can couple to the twistor uplift of self-dual gra
vity. At the quantum level\, this twistor uplift is anomalous and the quan
tum corrected chiral algebra fails to be associative. I will present a num
ber of methods of cancelling the anomaly\, leading to consistent quantum c
orrected hidden symmetry algebras. Finally\, I will explore how this story
is modified on one of the simplest non-trivial examples of a self-dual Ri
cci flat background: the Eguchi-Hanson gravitational instanton.\n\nThis ta
lk is based on collaborations with Simon Heuveline\, Atul Sharma and David
Skinner.\n

ns holography\nby Atul Sharma (Harvard University) as part of Nagoya M
ath-Phys Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI will describe a top-down example of cele
stial holography\, based on recent work with Costello and Paquette. Our du
ality relates certain models of self-dual gauge theory and conformal gravi
ty\, placed on an asymptotically flat four-dimensional spacetime called Bu
rns space\, to a two-dimensional chiral algebra living on D1 branes in a t
opological string theory on twistor space.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: E.
Noether's variational symmetries and pluri-Lagrangian systems\nby Yuri
Suris as part of Nagoya Math-Phys Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe analyze the r
elation of the notion of a pluri-Lagrangian system\, which recently emerge
d in the theory\nof integrable systems\, to the classical notion of variat
ional symmetry\, due to E. Noether. For finite-dimensional (classical mech
anical) systems we show that\, for any Lagrangian system with m commuting
variational symmetries\, one can construct a pluri-Lagrangian 1-form in th
e (m+1)-dimensional time\,\nwhose multi-time Euler-Lagrange equations coin
cide with the original system supplied with m commuting\nevolutionary flow
s corresponding to the variational symmetries. For two-dimensional hierarc
hies of\nLagrangian PDEs\, we show that if the flow of each PDE is a varia
tional symmetry of all others\, then there exists a pluri-Lagrangian 2-for
m for the hierarchy. The corresponding multi-time Euler–Lagrange equatio
ns coincide with the original system supplied with commuting evolutionary
flows induced by the variational symmetries.\n

integrability in gauge theories\nby Junya Yagi (Tsinghua) as part of N
agoya Math-Phys Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Zamolodchikov tetrahedron equat
ion is a fundamental relation for the integrability of 3D lattice models i
n statistical mechanics\, playing a role similar to the Yang-Baxter equati
on in 2D lattice models. I will discuss how solutions of the tetrahedron e
quation arise from dualities of supersymmetric gauge theories.\n
