We consider a self-avoiding walk model (SAW) on the faces of the square lattice \mathbb{Z}^2. This walk can traverse the same face twice, but crosses any edge at most once. The weight of a walk...

The loop O(n) model is a model for a random collection of non-intersecting loops on the hexagonal lattice, which is believed to be in the same universality class as the spin O(n) model. It has...

Floquet topological insulators describe independent electrons on a lattice driven out of equilibrium by a time-periodic Hamiltonian, beyond the usual adiabatic approximation. In dimension two...

The eigenstate thermalization hypothesis (ETH) explains how closed unitary quantum systems can exhibit thermal behavior in pure states. In this work we examine a recently proposed microscopic...

Hugo Duminil-Copin, Vincent Tassion

In this note, we discuss a generalization of Schramm's locality conjecture to the case of random-cluster models. We give some partial (modest) answers, and present several related open questions...

The triadic description of General Relativity in three dimensions is known to be a BF theory. Diffeomorphisms, as symmetries, are easily re- covered on shell from the symmetries of BF theory....

Miguel S. Costa, Tobias Hansen, João Penedones

We consider the Regge limit of the CFT correlation functions ⟨JJOO⟩ and ⟨TTOO⟩, where J is a vector current, T is the stress tensor and O is some scalar operator. These correlation functions are...

Some of the dark matter in the Universe is made up of massive neutrinos. Their impact on the formation of large scale structure can be used to determine their absolute mass scale from cosmology...

The present paper shows that the Palatini-Cartan-Holst (PCH) formulation of General Relativity in tetrad variables must be complemented with additional requirements on the fields when boundaries...

Alberto S. Cattaneo, Michele Schiavina

General relativity in four dimensions can be reformulated as a gauge theory, referred to as Palatini-Cartan-Holst theory. This paper describes its reduced phase space using a geometric method...

Itai Benjamini, Hugo Duminil-Copin, Gady Kozma, Cyrille Lucas

We study internal diffusion-limited aggregation with random starting points on Z^d. In this model, each new particle starts from a vertex chosen uniformly at random on the existing aggregate. We...

The presence of asymmetry between fermions of opposite handedness in plasmas of relativistic particles can lead to exponential growth of a helical magnetic field via a small-scale chiral dynamo...
