Solving Strongly Coupled Quantum Field Theory - Part 2

Note: Virtually:
Speaker: Yuan Xin, Boston University, Physics Department

When: March 30, 2020 (Mon), 03:00PM to 05:00PM (add to my calendar)

This event is part of the PhD Final Oral Exams.

This is the part 2 of two subsequent presentations. I will briefly review the motivation and the methods and focus on the applications.

Quantum Field Theory is the language that describes a wide spectrum of physics, from the fundamental matters and interactions down to the phase transition of water. However, it is notoriously hard at strong coupling regime. In this talk I will approach this question in an old Quantum Mechanical method - keep a finite number of states and diagonalize the Hamiltonian as a finite-size matrix - with our recent setup, known as the Lightcone Conformal Truncation. I will present its applications in various two dimensional examples.
