Combinatorics and loop models: a reviewMathematical Physics & Probability
|Speaker: ||Paul Zinn-Justin, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie|
|Location: ||1147 MSB|
|Start time: ||Wed, Feb 15 2012, 4:10PM|
We shall review recent developments in the combinatorial interpretation of certain models coming from two-dimensional statistical mechanics, especially loop models. Among the subjects we shall discuss are the Razumov-Stroganov correspondence, the enumeration of Alternating Sign Matrices and the geometry of Orbital Varieties.
