Events for 23 October 2020
TASEP (totally asymmetric simple exclusion process) is the most well studied model in the KPZ (Kardar-Parisi-Zhang) universality class. In the talk we consider the TASEP model on a periodic domain, which we call periodic TASEP. We will discuss the limiting distributions arising from periodic TASEP, which are expected to be universal for all KPZ models in a periodic domain. Moreover, we will explain how to derive the analogous formulas of TASEP by letting the period large enough in the periodic TASEP. The first part of the talk is based on the joint work with Jinho Baik.

After a review of Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism and homotopy algebras, we discuss how these structures emerge in quantum field theory and gravity. We focus then on the application of these sophisticated mathematical tools to scattering amplitudes (both tree- and loop-level) and to the understanding of the dualities between gauge theories and gravity, highlighting generalizations of old results and presenting new ones.
