Supersymmetry, Gravity and Attractors

Speaker: 
Alessio Marrani (University of Padova)
Event Type: 
Seminar
Location: 
Aula Caldirola

I will present a general survey of basic facts on the attractor dynamics in extremal black hole solutions of locally supersymmetric theories of gravity. In particular, I will consider the general issue of stability of
attractor points, and the classification of U-duality charge orbits and of the corresponding "attractor moduli spaces" in four-dimensional theories based on symmetric scalar manifolds. Some brief remarks on current and future developments will be made, as well.
