We construct an explicit equivalence between the (bi)category of gl(2) webs and foams and the Bar-Natan (bi)category of Temperley-Lieb diagrams and cobordisms. With this equivalence we can fix...

We present the first-principle derivation of a weak-strong duality between the fishnet theory in four dimensions and a discretised string-like model living in five dimensions. At strong coupling...

This Astro-2020 White Paper deals with what we might learn from future gravitational wave observations about the early universe phase transitions and their energy scales, primordial black holes...

We compute tautological integrals over Quot schemes on curves and surfaces. After obtaining several explicit formulas over Quot schemes of dimension 0 quotients on curves (and finding a new...

We model the Lights Out game on general simple graphs in the framework of linear algebra over the field \mathbb F_2. Based upon a version of the Fredholm alternative, we introduce a separating...

In this note, we revisit the Θ-invariant as defined by R. Bott and the first author. The Θ-invariant is an invariant of rational homology 3-spheres with acyclic orthogonal local systems, which...

We use the monodromy method to compute expectation values of an arbitrary number of light operators in finitely excited ("heavy") eigenstates of holographic 2D CFT. For eigenstates with scaling...

We consider a Bose gas trapped in the unit torus in the Gross-Pitaevskii regime. In the ground state, we prove that fluctuations of bounded one-particle observables satisfy a central limit...

The Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev (SYK) model provides an uncommon example of a chaotic theory that can be analysed analytically. In the deep infrared limit, the original model has an emergent conformal (...

For string theory on AdS3 with pure NS-NS flux a complete set of DDF operators is constructed, from which one can read off the symmetry algebra of the spacetime CFT. Together with an analysis of...

We study the O(4) Wilson-Fisher fixed point in 2+1 dimensions in fixed large-charge sectors identified by products of two spin-j representations (j_L, j_R). Using effective field theory we...

In the correspondence between spectral problems and topological strings, it is natural to consider complex values for the string theory moduli. In the spectral theory side, this corresponds to...
