Málstofa: Friðrik Freyr Gautason

Næsta málstofa verður þriðjudaginn 21. mars kl 13:20 í Naustinu, húsi Endurmenntunar.
Fyrirlesari er Friðrik Freyr Gautason, Háskóla Íslands.
Titill fyrirlestrarins er Localization and the AdS/CFT correspondence.

Ágrip: When studying quantum systems of particles and their interactions, we are often interested in computing the
so-called partition function which is a generating function for physical observables. For most system of interest,
it is notoriously difficult, if not impossible, to compute the partition function except in simplifying limits.
In this talk, I will start by giving a short introduction to the partition function before focusing on localization;
a tool that allows for the exact evaluation of the partition function for some specific systems. If time permits, I will also discuss the relation to the AdS/CFT correspondence.
