An introduction to gauge theories for probabilists: Part I

Presented by: 
Sourav Chatterjee Stanford University
Monday 9th July 2018 - 10:00 to 11:00
INI Seminar Room 1
In this lecture series, I will introduce the basic framework of quantum Yang-Mills theories and lattice gauge theories from the probabilist’s point of view. A summary of available rigorous results and open problems will be given. This will be followed by a discussion of gauge-string duality, large N lattice gauge theories, and some recent results. In the first lecture, I will introduce the physical description of quantum Yang-Mills theories. I will also briefly discuss Wilson loops, quark confinement, and perturbative expansions.
