We consider critical oriented Bernoulli percolation on the square lattice \mathbb{Z}^2. We prove a Russo-Seymour-Welsh type result which allows us to derive several new results concerning the...

Ricardo Couso-Santamaría, Marcos Marino, Ricardo Schiappa

The quest to find a nonperturbative formulation of topological string theory has recently seen two unrelated developments. On the one hand, via quantization of the mirror curve associated to a...

Giulia Cusin, Stefano Foffa, Michele Maggiore, Michele Mancarella

In cosmological models where dark energy has a dynamical origin one would expect that a primordial inflationary epoch leaves no imprint on the behavior of dark energy near the present epoch. We...

Luis Alvarez-Gaume, Orestis Loukas, Domenico Orlando, Susanne Reffert

We study (conformal) field theories with global symmetries in the sector where the value of the global charge Q is large. We find (as expected) that the low energy excitations of this sector are...

Tina Kahniashvili, Axel Brandenburg, Ruth Durrer, Alexander G. Tevzadze, Winston Yin

In this paper we study a (nearly) scale-invariant helical magnetic field generated during inflation. We show that, if the helicity of such fields is measured, it can be used to determine the...

Khalid bou-Rabee, Ioan Manolescu, Aglaia Myropolska

For G a finitely generated group and g \in G, we say g is detected by a normal subgroup N \lhd G if g \notin N. The depth DG(g) of g is the lowest index of a normal, finite index...

Matthias R. Gaberdiel, Christoph A. Keller, Hynek Paul

Mathieu Moonshine, the observation that the Fourier coefficients of the elliptic genus on K3 can be interpreted as dimensions of representations of the Mathieu group M24, has been proven...

Eugene V. Sukhorukov, Frederic Pierre, and 10 others

In 1909, Millikan showed that the charge of electrically isolated systems is quantized in units of the elementary electron charge e. Today, the persistence of charge quantization in small,...

Nature, Vol 536, Issue 7614, pp. 58–62

Antti Kemppainen, Stanislav Smirnov

In the second article of this series, we establish the convergence of the loop ensemble of interfaces in the random cluster Ising model to a conformal loop ensemble (CLE) --- thus completely...

Marco Castrillón López, Tudor S. Ratiu

This short note presents a comprehensive and pedagogical study of the results in [6] on Lagrangian submanifolds in cotangent bundles T∗X defined by Morse families S:B→R for arbitrary submersions...

Geometry, Algebra and Applications: From Mechanics to Cryptography, Vol 161
Thursday, 15 September, 2016
Jason Miller, Scott Sheffield, Wendelin Werner

We show that when observing the range of a chordal SLEκ curve for κ∈(4,8), it is not possible to recover the order in which the points have been visited. We also derive related results about...

Erwin Bolthausen, Alessandra Cipriani, Noemi Kurt

We consider the membrane model, that is the centered Gaussian field on Zd whose covariance matrix is given by the inverse of the discrete Bilaplacian. We impose a δ−pinning condition...
