Physics Group Meeting at IAS | Douglas Stanford, Member, School of Natural Sciences, IAS | “Aspects of One-matrix Integrals”

Wed, Mar 20, 2019, 1:45 pm
Bloomberg Hall Physics Library

I will review the perturbative (genus) expansion of one-matrix integrals via the loop equations, and the streamlined version due to Eynard. I will review double-scaled matrix integrals and discuss a heuristic method for computing some nonperturbative effects. For a thorough modern discussion of the loop equations and the connection to "topological recursion," see
