String Theory Seminar at Duke University
We list here string theory seminars sponsored by the Center for Geometry and Theoretical Physics (CGTP), string theory seminars held at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and related talks in the Geometry/Topology seminar at Duke. The CGTP also holds a weekly group meeting at Friday lunch.

Graded Quivers, Toric Calabi Yaus and B-Branes
- Recently introduced m-graded quivers provide a unified language for describing gauge theories with minimal amount of supersymmetry and their dualities in various dimensions. The prototypical example of these are gauge theories on D-branes probing Calabi-Yau singularities. In this talk after reviewing how m-graded quivers encode various constraints on these theories, I will describe some general methods of constructing these quivers and use them to construct a few infinite families of them. Lastly I will explain how these quivers describe Topological B-model on toric Calabi-Yaus.
