OASW03 - Subfactors, K-theory and conformal field theory

Co-author: David Baraglia (The University of Adelaide)

T-duality is a discrete symmetry that was discovered by physicists in the context of string theory, but has now matured into a precise mathematical statement. In this talk I will give a brief overview of topological T-duality and explain how it can be used to give a new, surprisingly simple proof of Hodgkin’s famous theorem on the K-theory of compact simply connected Lie groups.
