Location:Lidow Nathan Rosen (300)
Abstract: QCD3 admits a rich phase diagram, that includes a bosonization phase, a symmetry breaking phase
 and a CFT. In this talk I will review the phases of QCD3 and will propose a dual description in terms of magnetic variables.
 I will use (non-supersymmetric) 3d Seiberg duality, derived from string theory, to explore the phases of the theory.
