In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Schwinger pair production and non-Abelian electric fields
(Arizona State U.)
IFAE Seminar Room (In-person seminar)
IFAE Seminar Room
An electric field in pure Maxwell theory is stable. However, if there are charged particles in the theory, the electric field decays due to Schwinger pair production. In pure non-Abelian gauge theories, the gauge particles are themselves charged, leading to the question whether a non-Abelian electric field, such as in a confining string, can be stable. will discuss electric fields due to certain non-Abelian gauge configurations that are protected from Schwinger pair production and may be candidates for ``electric strings''.
