Eric Berry Ph.D. Defense, "Additivity of Factorization Algebras"

Eric Berry (Dept. of Mathematical Sciences, MSU) will present his Ph.D. Defense, "Additivity of Factorization Algebras"
Abstract: Factorization algebras are an articulation of the structure of observables in perturbative quantum field theory. They also arise in a purely mathematical context; for example, algebras and modules over them give rise to factorization algebras. In this talk, I will discuss a recent project in which we prove an additivity statement for factorization algebras. From this result we deduce an analogous result for locally constant factorization algebras. In particular, our results provide a new proof of Dunn's additivity for E_n algebras.
