Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Conformal field theory and combinatorics

Presented by Patrick Jacob (Durham),

17 June 2005 00:00 in CM221

"Over the last two decades, several generalizations of the celebrated Rogers-Ramanujan identities have been worked out, like the Andrews-Gordon identities.
The connections of these identities to integrable models in 2-D are growing deeper and could even bring us some new information about the connections between integrable models themselves, namely the RSOS models, spin chains, S-matrix theory and conformal field theory.
We will discuss about the way one can use conformal field theory to derive the Andrews multiple sums, appearing on one side of the Andrews-Gordon identities."
