Continued: Renormalization and Universality in Conformal Geometry, Dynamics, Random Processes, and Field Theory: February 22 – March 19, 2021

Organizers: Dzmitry Dudko, Kostya Khanin and Misha Lyubich The goal of the program is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on various aspects of renormalization in dynamical systems. The idea of Renormalization group emerged in Quantum Field Theory. Later, in the 1960s, it became a major tool in Statistical Mechanics in analysis of phase […]
