Random Tensors and Field Theory

Project description

Theoretical descriptions and practical applications of a new class of field theories

Advanced mathematical formulations are fundamental to our descriptions of complex physical systems, particularly in the fields of quantum mechanics and condensed matter. Perturbation techniques can make the complex more simple, enabling approximate solutions to problems without exact solutions starting from exact solutions to simpler problems. Perturbative large-N (or 1/N) expansion is a particular case of this. Its application to tensors led to the exciting discovery of a new class of mathematical models or field theories, the melonic theories. EU funding of the RTFT project will enable the scientist who made the discovery to explore the topic in much greater depth.
