|SPECIAL MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS SEMINAR|
|Topic:||Universality in the 2D Coulomb Gas|
|Affiliation:||Member, School of Mathematics|
|Date:||Wednesday, April 20|
|Time/Room:||2:00pm - 3:00pm/S-101|
The Coulomb Gas is a model of Statistical Mechanics with a special type of phase transition. In the first part of the talk I will review the expected features conjectured by physicists and the few mathematical results so far obtained. The second part will be an introductory discussion of a general technique (Renormalization Group) to approach the problem.
