Conformal Invariance in Continuous and Discrete Systems: April 8 – 12, 2013

Organized by John Cardy, Greg Lawler and Paul Wiegmann


The workshop will focus on the mathematical and physical understanding of the interrelations between Conformal Field Theory and Schramm Loewner Evolution, as well as their relation to discrete lattice systems such as percolation, Ising models, Potts models, loop models, and dimers. The other topics covered will include Conformal Loop Ensembles, the Gaussian Free Field and Quantum Gravity, discrete holomorphicity and integrability, disordered lattice models including network models of Anderson localization, and random maps (such as random triangulations).


This workshop is a part of the Spring 2013 program Conformal Geometry, which is organized by Ilia Binder, John Cardy, Andrei Okounkov, and Paul Wiegmann
