## Conformal Field Theory and Statistical Mechanics

This course is the second quarter of statistical mechanics. It focuses on collective behavior of many-particle systems, hydrodynamics, and phase transitions. This course is going to be taught a little differently than usual. We will cover aspects of the subject through topical examples from recent research. Rather than proceed systematically through the subject, we will introduce a research example, and work through the necessary background in as efficient but not thorough!

This may be challenging, but it will hopefully also be stimulating. Systematic accounts of the fundamentals of the subject are found in many books, so you should be able to fill in the gaps by reading. Physics Knowledge of basic statistical mechanics, and quantum mechanics at a graduate level. Spin ice: Pauling's article on water ice Giauque's experimental paper measuring the "missing" entropy in water ice.

Gingras review on spin ice Order by disorder: Villain's paper on the domino model Henley's paper on the J1-J2 model Prerequisites: Physics Coldea experiment.

Ising model, phases. Symmetry breaking. Quantum transition. Continuum field theory. Domain walls versus spin flips. Begin frustrated magnets and ice. Spin liquid and correlations. Upper critical dimension. Hyejin Ju's notes on Monte Carlo caveat emptor.

## John Cardy - Scaling and Renormalization in Statistical Physics

Quantum field theory is the mathematical framework of all of particle physics and the indispensable language of a large body of statistical mechanics and of quantum many body physics. It is an incredibly rich subject that you will keep learning for the rest of your scientific life. Learning QFT is qualitatively different from learning other advanced subjects, such as quantum mechanics and classical general relativity, which have a more established logical framework, and have been formalized even to the satisfaction of mathematicians. QFT is still an open subject, close to the conceptual frontier of theoretical physics. It is a work in progress, enriched by new viewpoints, simplified and extended in unexpected directions by each generation of theorists. We will review the renormalization of UV divergences in perturbation theory and then introduce the Wilsonian viewpoint on QFT - notably the connection between renormalization and critical phenomena. One-loop calculations in quantum electrodynamics and Yang-Mills theory.

Quantum Field Theory is the tool as well as the language that has been developed to describe the physics of problems in such apparently dissimilar fields. Physics is the second half of a two-semester sequence of courses in Quantum Field Theory. The first half, Physics , was taught by me in the Fall Semester The aim of this sequence is to provide the basic tools of Field Theory to students both theorists and experimentalists with a wide range of interests in Physics. These ideas and tools will be used in subsequent and more specialized courses. We also discussed the applications of these methods to several areas of Physics, such as High Energy and Statistical and Condensed Matter Physics.

Это шантаж. Больше всего похоже на требование выкупа. Слова Сьюзан прозвучали слабым, едва уловимым шепотом: - Это… Энсей Танкадо. Джабба повернулся и изумленно посмотрел на. - Танкадо. Сьюзан едва заметно кивнула: - Он требовал, чтобы мы сделали признание… о ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ… это стоило ему… - Признание? - растерянно прервал ее Бринкерхофф. - Танкадо требует, чтобы мы признали существование ТРАНСТЕКСТА.

С тех пор их отношения развивались с быстротой скольжения по склону горы. ГЛАВА 4 Потайная дверь издала сигнал, выведя Сьюзан из состояния печальной задумчивости. Дверь повернулась до положения полного открытия. Через пять секунд она вновь закроется, совершив вокруг своей оси поворот на триста шестьдесят градусов. Сьюзан собралась с мыслями и шагнула в дверной проем. Компьютер зафиксировал ее прибытие.
