Description

Over the years, various researchers have suggested connections between the octonions and the standard model of particle physics. The past few years, in particular, have been marked by an upsurge of activity on this subject, stimulated by the recent observation that the standard model gauge group and fermion representation can be elegantly characterized in terms of the octonions. This workshop, which will be the first ever on this topic, is intended to bring this new community together in an attempt to better understand these ideas, establish a common language, and stimulate further progress.

The workshop will consist of an hour-long talk every Monday at noon (EST), with the first talk on Monday February 8, and the final talk on Monday May 17.
