On Some Mathematics of Gauge String Theory Correspondence

Vassili Gorbunov (University of Aberdeen)

The gauge string duality has been established in physics in many different situations. In this talk we discuss the work due to Berkovits where such a duality takes a form of Koszul duality of the coordinate ring of a projective variety and a certain graded Lie algebra. We describe mathematical features of this duality.
