Renormalisation, dynamics, and hyperbolic symmetry

Project description

Robust mathematical techniques for renormalisation group analysis of spin systems

Renormalisation group is an important mathematical tool in theoretical physics, allowing the systematic investigation of changes in a physical system at different scales. The aim of the EU-funded SPINRG project is to develop new mathematical methods for renormalisation group analysis of classical continuous spin systems. The focus will be on their stochastic dynamics and hyperbolic symmetry. Project work will build on the outcomes of previously used successful methods on renormalisation group analysis for static systems, renormalisation group approaches to Glauber dynamics, spin systems with hyperbolic symmetry and supersymmetry and random matrix theory. The renormalisation theory was key to the development of quantum electrodynamics and has now become a central technique in quantum field theory.
