Probability Seminar

Topic: 
The Yang–Mills free energy
Monday, January 25, 2016 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm
Venue: 
Sequoia Hall, Room 200
Speaker: 
Sourav Chatterjee (Stanford)
Abstract / Description: 

The construction of four-dimensional quantum Yang–Mills theories is a central open question in mathematical physics, famously posed as one of the millennium prize problems by the Clay Institute. While much progress has been made for the two dimensional problem, the techniques mostly break down in dimensions three and four. In this talk I will present a partial advance on this question, taking the program one step beyond the results proved in the Eighties.


 

The Probability Seminars are held in Sequoia Hall, Room 200, at 4:30pm on Mondays. Refreshments are served at 4pm in the Lounge on the first floor.
