From path integrals to mathematics
Jeudi, 30 Mai, 2024 - 16:30
Résumé : 

In this talk I will introduce the notion of path integral, used by physicist in Quantum Field Theory. Even though a priori not well defined, I want to give some pointers regarding its big influence in mathematics. Examining a toy model, I will explain algebraic structures appearing from the notion of path integral. They in turn can be used to give rigorous meaning to it, leading to so called Feynman diagrams.
