FTheory: Higher-Spin Gauge Theory, Space-Time and Quantum Mechanics
Higher-spin gauge theory is a theory exhibiting an infinite extension of usual space-time and internal symmetries of modern models of fundamental interactions. It is holographically dual
to a three-dimensional sigma model playing important role in condensed matter physics. I will discuss general aspects of the higher-spin gauge theory with the emphasis on the higher-spin
symmetry and its implications for fundamental concepts of space-time and quantum mechanics. Related aspects of AdS/CFT correspondence, will also be touched.
