Theoretical Physics Seminar – Kurt Johansson
This is part of a seminar series for students and researchers interested in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. Listen to Kurt Johansson from KTH Royal Institute of Technology during the seminar "The Airy process and some integrable models in statistical physics".
Kurt Johansson: The Airy process and some integrable models in statistical physics
The Airy process is a stochastic process that was introduced about twenty years ago and is expected to be a universal scaling limit in many models from random matrix theory, random growth models, random tiling (dimer) models and more. I will give some background on the Airy process and discuss its appearance in some specific models. This will be a survey talk. At the end I will briefly touch upon some recent results with Ayyer and Chhita on a special case of the six-vertex model with domain-wall boundary conditions related to alternating sign matrices.
The seminar will be held in hybrid form
You can attend either in person or via Zoom.
Location: PJ Lecture room, Department of Physics, Kemigården 1, Gothenburg
