Curves of genus g which admit a map to CP1 with specified ramification profile mu over 0 and nu over infinity define a double ramification cycle DR_g(mu,nu) on the moduli space of curves. The...

We study scattering theory for a quantum-mechanical system consisting of a particle scattered off a dynamical target that occupies a compact region in position space. After taking a trace over...

We present a comprehensive and updated comparison with cosmological observations of two non-local modifications of gravity previously introduced by our group, the so called RR and RT models. We...

We describe the asymptotic behaviour and the dependence on the regularization of logarithmically divergent integrals of products of meromorphic and antimeromorphic forms on complex manifolds....

We study two nonlinear extensions of the nonlocal R\,\Box^{-2}R gravity theory. We extend this theory in two different ways suggested by conformal symmetry, either replacing \Box^{-...

Some relations between families of two-character CFTs are explained using a slightly generalised coset construction, and the underlying theories (whose existence was only conjectured based on...

We review two rigorous results on the transport properties of weakly interacting fermionic systems on 2d lattices, in the linear response regime. First, we discuss the universality of the...

This is a survey of our program of perturbative quantization of gauge theories on manifolds with boundary compatible with cutting/pasting and with gauge symmetry treated by means of a...

We develop the Clebsch variational method of deriving stochastic differential equations whose solutions follow the flow of a stochastic nonlinear Lie algebra operation on a configuration...

This is a writeup of lectures given at the EPFL Lausanne in the fall of 2012. The topics covered: physical foundations of conformal symmetry, conformal kinematics, radial quantization and the...

We consider families of non-colliding random walks above a hard wall, which are subject to a self-potential of tilted area type. We view such ensembles as effective models for the level lines of...

These notes provide an introduction to the local semicircle law from random matrix theory, as well as some of its applications. We focus on Wigner matrices, Hermitian random matrices with...
