Non-perturbative dynamics of quantum fields: from new deconfined phases of matter to quantum black holes

Project description

New computational techniques to enhance understanding of strong quantum-system interactions

Strong coupling between the different degrees of freedom – the number of independent variables that describe a quantum system – gives rise to a plethora of exotic, unconventional phenomena with no classical counterpart. Using quantum field theory to explain the behaviour of subatomic particles and their interactions becomes extremely complex. The ambitious goal of the EU-funded NP-QFT project is to develop new computational techniques that can shed more light on the physics of strongly coupled particles in a quantum system. With the help of these new approaches, project researchers will refine the concept of symmetry, develop supersymmetric localisation and probe Borel summability of certain gauge theories. Deciphering strong couplings between variables in a quantum system will revolutionise different fields such as particle physics, condensed matter physics and astrophysics.
