The lace expansion is one of the primary tools for proving that probability models in high dimensions have mean field behaviour. I will explain the previous sentence by describing joint work in progress with David Brydges and Mark Holmes, in which we develop a continuous time lace expansion. Our method allows us to analyze n-component field theories when n is zero, one, or two. The case n=2 is new.
