Clément Hongler receives an ERC Starting Grant

Clément Hongler has received an ERC Starting Grant titiled "Connecting Statistical Mechanics and Conformal Field Theory: an Ising Model Perspective".

The goal of the project is to develop mathematically the connections between Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory, starting from the conjectured correspondence between the Ising Model and Conformal Field Theory. The goal is to make this correspondence completely rigorous, and then to expand it to other models and field theories, including in particular the Unitary Minimal Models and Integrable Massive Field Theories.
