AGILE is a small mission of the Italian Space Agency launched on April
27, 2007, and primarily devoted to high-energy astrophysics. Although
its small dimensions and the overall very stringent constrains, in
more than eight years of operation AGILE was able to deliver
fundamental results on the physics of cosmic accelerators, including
supermassive black holes at the center of active galactic nuclei,
gamma-ray bursts, microquasars, pulsars and supernova remnants. This
large record of achievements culminated with the awarding of the Bruno

Triangle Nuclear Theory Colloquium
Simon Catterall (Syracuse Univ.)
Physics 298
Date: Tuesday, December 8, 2015 - 3:30pm

The problem of constructing supersymmetric lattice theories is an old one dating back to the earliest days of lattice gauge theory and has resisted solution until quite recently. I will show how new ideas borrowed from topological field theory have afforded a solution to this problem and describe one of the most interesting applications; the construction of a supersymmetric lattice regularization of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory.
