Ioan Manolescu, Aran Raoufi

We prove sharpness of the phase transition for the random-cluster model with q≥1 on graphs of the form S:=G×S, where G is a planar lattice with mild symmetry assumptions, and S a finite graph....

Matthias Blau, Martin O'Loughlin

We address the question of the uniqueness of the Schwarzschild black hole by considering the following question: How many meaningful solutions of the Einstein equations exist that agree with the...

Enea Di Dio, Francesco Montanari, Alvise Raccanelli, Ruth Durrer, Marc Kamionkowski, Julien Lesgourgues

We modified the CLASS code in order to include relativistic galaxy number counts in spatially curved geometries; we present the formalism and study the effect of relativistic corrections on...

Victor Turchin, Thomas Willwacher

We express the hairy graph complexes computing the rational homotopy groups of long embeddings (modulo immersion) of R^m in R^n as "decorated" graph complexes associated to certain...

Wilmar Cardona, Ruth Durrer, Martin Kunz, Francesco Montanari

In this letter we demonstrate the importance of including the lensing contribution in galaxy clustering analyses with large galaxy redshift surveys. It is well known that radial cross-...

Miguel S. Costa, Tobias Hansen, João Penedones, Emilio Trevisani

In this paper we derive the projectors to all irreducible SO(d) representations (traceless mixed-symmetry tensors) that appear in the partial wave decomposition of a conformal correlator of four...

Miguel Costa, Tobias Hansen, João Penedones, Emilio Trevisani

This paper develops a method to compute any bosonic conformal block as a series expansion in the optimal radial coordinate introduced by Hogervorst and Rychkov. The method reduces to the known...

Rahul Pandharipande

This article accompanies my lecture at the 2015 AMS summer institute in algebraic geometry in Salt Lake City. I survey the recent advances in the study of tautological classes on the moduli...

Béla Bollobás, Hugo Duminil-Copin, Robert Morris, Paul Smith

The class of critical bootstrap percolation models in two dimensions was recently introduced by Bollob\'as, Smith and Uzzell, and the critical threshold for percolation was determined up to a...

Tarek Anous, Thomas Hartman, Antonin Rovai, Julian Sonner

We present a first-principles CFT calculation corresponding to the spherical collapse of a shell of matter in three dimensional quantum gravity. In field theory terms, we describe the...

Juhan Aru, Avelio Sepúlveda, Wendelin Werner

We study a certain class of local sets of the two-dimensional Gaussian free field (GFF) in a simply-connected domain, and their relation to the conformal loop ensemble CLE(4) and its variants....

Da Liu, Alex Pomarol, Riccardo Rattazzi, Francesco Riva

Even though the Standard Model (SM) is weakly coupled at the Fermi scale, a new strong dynamics involving its degrees of freedom may conceivably lurk at slightly higher energies, in the multi...
