Discretized dynamical manifolds

Objective



Research objectives and content
The principal aim of the project is to carry out research in the subject of random surfaces and random higher dimensional manifolds. This is a study of mathematical models which have applications in many branches of physics ranging from biophysics to quantum gravity. The plan is to study a par-ticular class of theories which are rele- vant for quantum chromodynamics and quantum gravity. These are the so-called gonihedric theories with an extrinsic curvature dependent action functional. Training content (objective, benefit and expected impact)
The applicant plans to give a series of lectures in his field of expertise aimed at introducing advanced graduate students and non-experts to the subject of discretized geometrical quantum field theories. Links with industry / industrial relevance (22)
