NCTS-NCU Seminar on Gaussian Free Field
 
Every Thursday 16:00 - 18:00, September 21, 2017 - January 18, 2018
, Center of Math & Theoretic Physics, NCU

Organizers:
Chin-Cheng Lin (National Central University)
Xiang Fang (National Central University)


Description:

Gaussian Free Fields are widely used in Conformal Field Theory by physicists since 1960s, but their mathematical theory took off only after a 2011 breakthrough by Duplantier-Sheffield, who proved a conjecture formulated by physicists. In particular, by the renowned string theorist (A.M. Polyakov) at Princeton. 
 
In 1981, Polyakov used GFF to propose a theory of random Riemann surface, as a mathematical model for the world sheet in string theory. In 2016, Sheffield was able to define a notion of quantum length for SLE in terms of Polyakov’s framework. We seek to analyze some fine properties of this quantum length.
