Quantum Field Theory with Gaussian Multiplicative Chaos

Project description

Probabilistic methods help unify quantum mechanics and general relativity

The Standard Model of particle physics has several acknowledged gaps, one of which is that it does not account for the force of gravity. Quantum gravity attempts to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity via a quantum description of gravity as packets of magnetism. Quantum field theory (QFT) is the mathematical framework for modern particle physics. Whereas quantum mechanics deals with the behaviour of one or a few microscopic particles, QFT can be used to describe quantum systems with many particles, so-called many-body problems. Through an in-depth exploration of probabilistic approaches in QFT, the EU-funded QuantGMC project is developing probabilistic methods that will help us better understand the theory of quantum gravity.
