Title: Critical Manifolds for Percolation and Potts Models from Graph Polynomials Speaker: Jesper Jacobsen, ENS Paris Date: Wednesday, January 30, 2013 Time: 10:00am – 11:00am Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center Abstract: The first parameter to be fixed when studying a phase transition is the critical temperature. Somewhat surprisingly, this parameter is only known analytically […]

With collaborative research started in the fall of 2011 at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, the authors study Einstein metrics on smooth compact 4-manifolds with an edge-cone singularity of specified cone angle along an embedded 2-manifold.
The Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (SCGP) at Stony Brook University is seeking proposals for scientific programs/workshops/conferences. The Simons Center is a research center devoted to furthering fundamental knowledge in mathematics and theoretical physics, especially knowledge at the interface of these two disciplines. Each year the Simons Center funds about 4 Visiting Programs (ranging […]
