Quantum Field Theory, Renormalisation and Stochastic Partial Differential Equations

22nd October 2018 to 26th October 2018
Lorenzo Zambotti Université Pierre & Marie Curie-Paris VI
Martina Hofmanova ENS de Cachan
Gordon Slade University of British Columbia, University of British Columbia

Workshop Theme

The second workshop will focus on the most active directions of research in renormalisation, the renormalisation group, stochastic partial differential equations that require renormalisation.  In the first two days, the presentations will be focused on talks that display the connections between these topics.  For example, the invariant measures of certain stochastic pde are quantum field theories.  In the following days, possible topics will be decided later but could include discrete harmonic analysis and stochastic geometric representations of statistical mechanics systems at the critical point, duality between Schramm-Lowner evolution and the Gaussian free field; the effect of phase transitions on long time dynamics.

Deadline for applications: 15 July 2018
