Event description: 

In this talk, I will discuss the 2d SU(N) gauge theory coupled to an adjoint Majorana fermion using two approaches. First, I will describe the computation of the spectrum at finite N using Discretized Light-Cone Quantization. Then, for the N=2 case, I will introduce a Hamiltonian lattice model that can also be used to compute the spectrum as well as other observables using analytical and numerical techniques.
