Statistical Mechanics of the Two-Dimensional Coulomb Gas

Mathematical Physics & Probability

Speaker: Pierluigi Falco, California State University Northridge
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Wed, Jan 16 2013, 4:10PM

The lattice, two dimensional, Coulomb gas is the prototypical model of Statistical Mechanics displaying the 'Kosterlitz-Thouless' phase transition. In this seminar I will discuss conjectures, results and works in progress about this model.
