Research grants

- Topics in mathematical physics, AO.R
- Algebraic construction of models in Relativistic Quantum Field Theory and modular localization, AV.BR
### Abstract

The objective of this project is to construct non-perturbative models in relativistic quantum field theory (QFT), at the level of rigor required by Mathematical Physics. By model, here, we mean a net $\calA(O)$ of operator algebras whose elements are interpreted as observables in the region$ $\calO$. The main mathematical tools employed are the modular theory of Tomita and Takesaki, non...

- Algebraic and constructive aspects of quantum field theories, AV.EXT
### Abstract

The research proposal involves the use of methods of algebraic Quantum Field Theory and Local Quantum Physics in Constructive Quantum Field Theories and in the study of statistical properties if Dynamical Quantum Systems. Several related mathematical subjects also come into play, involving the study of non-commutative L^p spaces and the deformation theory of von Neumann algebras. (AU)

- Semiclassical study of eigenvalue crossings with applications to physics, BP.PD
### Abstract

In our PhD thesis we studied the propagation of Wigner measures linked to solutions of the Schrödinger equation with scalar potentials presenting conical singularities and showed that they are transported by two different Hamiltonian flows, one over the bundle cotangent to the singular set and the other elsewhere in the phase space, up to a transference phenomenon between these two reg...

- Singularity theorems and energy inequalities in quantum field theories in curved space-times, BP.MS
### Abstract

We will study the mathematical formulation of energy inequalities in quantum field theories in curved space-times and some of their consequences. (AU)

- A search for the improvement of the coupling of gravity to matter in the Spin-foam and group field theories formalisms, BE.EP.DR
### Abstract

In the context of quantum gravity, several independent approaches have been developed and they surprisingly converge to the same formalism, nowadays called Spin-foam formalism. This is a tentative co-variant formulation of transition amplitudes for quantum gravity which can be seen as a discretization of the path integral formalism introduced by Stephen Hawking, also known as sum-over-g...
