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...

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...

Hugo Duminil-Copin, Vincent Tassion

The object of this short note is to show that the critical inverse temperature of the Potts model on \mathbb Z^3\times[-k,k]^{d-3} converges to the critical inverse temperature of the model on \...

Alberto S. Cattaneo, Michele Schiavina, Iswaryaa Selliah

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....

Julian Adamek, Ruth Durrer, Martin Kunz

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...

Alberto S. Cattaneo, Michele Schiavina

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...

Lorenz Eberhardt, Matthias R. Gaberdiel, Wei Li

The CFT dual of string theory on \mathrm{AdS}_3 \times \mathrm{S}^3 \times \mathrm{S}^3 \times \mathrm{S}^1 is conjectured to be the symmetric orbifold of the Sκ theory, provided that...

Rahul Pandharipande, Hsian-Hua Tseng

We study the higher genus equivariant Gromov-Witten theory of the Hilbert scheme of n points of the plane. Since the equivariant quantum cohomology is semisimple, the higher genus theory is...

Phase transitions are a central theme of statistical mechanics, and of probability more generally. Lattice spin models represent a general paradigm for phase transitions in finite dimensions,...

Orestis Loukas, Domenico Orlando, Susanne Reffert

We show that the large-charge formalism can be successfully applied to models that go beyond the vector models discussed so far in the literature. We study the explicit example of a conformal SU...
