Speaker: Kristian Jensen (San Francisco State U.)
Subject: A Zoo of Bosonization Dualities

There has been substantial progress toward establishing a landscape of non-supersymmetric dualities in three dimensions. These dualities equate Chern-Simons gauge theories coupled to matter, and relate theories of fundamental fermions to those of fundamental bosons. I will discuss a proposal for a new “master” duality between Chern-Simons theory coupled to fundamental bosons and fermions, which if correct summarizes most of these “3d bosonization” dualities.
