SCGP Weekly Talk: Alexander Zamolodchikov, “Baxter’s Operators, Boundary States, ODE/CFT and Beyond”

Alexander Zamolodchikov, Rutgers University

Title: Baxter’s Operators, Boundary States, ODE/CFT and Beyond
Program: Integrability in Modern Theoretical and Mathematical Physics
Speaker: Alexander Zamolodchikov, Rutgers University
Date: Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm
Place: Auditorium Room 103, Simons Center

Abstract: In this talk I will review the paradigm of integrability in 2D Quantum Field Theories (QFT), in particular the Baxter’s operators and relations between them. I will discuss remarkable relation of integrable Conformal QFT to certain ordinary differential equations – the so called ODE/CFT correspondence – and then propose its extension to the massive integrable QFT, the sine(h)-Gordon model.
