    Loop models in statistical mechanics

    10:00 - 11:00 | PhD defence ceremony

    Loop models are a class of two-dimensional lattice models in statistical mechanics. The states of the model consist of continuous paths that do not end except at the boundary, and closed loops are given a weight. ...
