Abstract:

We consider the Wilson line operators in certain gauge quantum field theories, including massless QED, massless scalar QED, and N=4 SYM as well as some examples in 2+1d. We find that Wilson lines sometimes admit interesting deformations leading to new conformal line operators. Also, sometimes, Wilson lines are destabilized and lead to an RG flow which we analyze. We also comment on t Hooft lines.

  • [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 ...

  • [Geometry and Physics Seminars] Resurgence and quantum topology

    Abstract: Quantum field theories and string theories often lead to perturbative series which encode geometric information. In this lecture I will argue that, in the case of complex Chern-Simons theory, perturbative series secretly encode integer invariants, related in some cases to BPS counting. The framework which makes this relation possible is the theory of resurgence, where perturbative ser...
