Giuseppe Mussardo (SISSA y INFN, Trieste, Italia):
CFT and Statistical Physics

  1. Critical Phenomena in Statistical Physics and the challenge they pose. Examples.
  2. Renormalization Group analysis: fixed point, deformations and scaling region.
  3. Continuum limit, quantum field theory approach. Examples: Ising model as Majorana fermion, Tricritical Ising Model, O(N) model.
  4. Integrable models in StatPhys, scattering theory and bootstrap program.
  5. Breaking of integrability and analysis of the classes of universality.
