Condensed-Matter Physics & Materials Science Seminar

"Recent Progress in Non-perturbative methods for QFTs"

Presented by Lorenzo Vitale, Boston University

Wednesday, January 23, 2019, 1:30 pm — ISB Bldg. 734 Conf. Rm. 201 (upstairs)

Quantum field theories (QFT) are notoriously hard to solve in the strongly coupled regime, and few tools are available in space dimension larger than one. In this talk I discuss recent progress and ideas in characterizing certain QFTs in dimension d >= 1, based on the Hamiltonian Truncation and S-matrix bootstrap techniques. Some of the applications I will mention are Landau-Ginzburg theories and the Chern-Simons-matter theories.
