Integrable Models in Statistical Physics & Their Universality

GGAM Colloquium

Speaker: Craig Tracy, UC Davis
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Fri, Nov 22 2013, 4:10PM

We examine three classes of integrable models in statistical physics (2D Ising model, random matrix models and the asymmetric simple exclusion process) and discuss how these simple models have lead to more general theories and universal limit laws.

Refreshments to follow.
