Title:Quantum field theory on curved Lorentzian space times
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Nguyen Viet Dang, Universite Paris 7 and Penn State
Abstract:
I will give an introduction to quantum fi eld theory on curved space time, emphasizing the central notion of causality. Then I will explain the analytical problems encountered when one tries to defi ne the quantities of interest in QFT, namely the n point functions, and how renormalization solves these analytical issues. This is ongoing project with Christian Brouder from Paris 6.
