Abstract

Each configuration in a quantum field theory corresponds to a map from a space X of functions or bundles with sections to the space of complex numbers. These maps are called Schrodinger wave functionals. They generalize wave functions in quantum mechanics, which are maps from a finite-dimensional manifold to the complex numbers. We review the main properties of wave functions and wave functionals in a series of examples. We describe an embedding of X into this quantum configuration space and argue that perturbative quantum field theory only probes a tubular neighborhood of its image, but that the poorly understood global properties of the quantum configuration space are relevant to the confinement problem in supersymmetric QCD.

  • [Seminar] [Geometry and Physics Seminars] Is Hubble constant is constant?

    摘 要:Modern cosmology rests upon the Cosmological Principle or FLRW paradigm, namely the assumption that the Universe is isotropic and homogeneous at large scales. Working within these assumptions, we are witnessing a potential 5 sigma discrepancy in the Hubble constant H0 between early and late Universe determinations. I will explain how this discrepancy may be an artifact of a breakdown of ...
