Hugo Duminil Copin :
Proving conformal invariance using discrete holomorphicity
The understanding of critical 2D statistical physics has undergone a
revolution in the past two decades thanks to several breakthroughs.
A celebrated discovery came with the introduction of SLE by
This process describes the scaling limit of interfaces of models at
criticality and therefore led to an important machinery sheding a completely
new light on 2D statistical physics.
But another tool, called discrete holomorphicity,
was introduced at the same time and enabled the proof of
conformal invariance for very important 2D lattice models. This tool
originated in graph theory before being used in statistical physics to prove
conformal invariance of the dimer and the planar Ising models.
In this talk, we will review the use of discrete holomorphicity
in 2D statistical physics.
4:00-5:30 Ori Gurel Gurevich :
On Smirnov's proof of conformal invariance of critical percolation
- 9:00-10:00 Hugo Duminil Copin :
Discrete holomorphicity and boundary value problems
- In this talk, we will describe the notion of discrete holomorphicity in
more details. In particular, we will explain how solutions to discrete
value problems can be proved to converge to their continuum counterparts.
This key fact will be instrumental in the proofs of conformal invariance.
- 10:15-11:15 Hugo Duminil Copin :
Applications of discrete holomorphicity to the proofs of conformal
invariance of the dimer and Ising models
- In this talk, we apply discrete holomorphicity to the proof of conformal
invariance of the dimer and Ising models.
11:45-12:45 Asaf Nachmias :
Planar maps, random walks and the circle packing theorem
