Item description for Frontiers in Number Theory, Physics, and Geometry II: On Conformal Field Theories, Discrete Groups and Renormalization by Pierre Cartier, Bernard Julia, Pierre Moussa & Pierre Vanhove...
The relation between mathematics and physics has a long history, in which the role of number theory and of other more abstract parts of mathematics has recently become more prominent.
More than ten years after a first meeting in 1989 between number theorists and physicists at the Centre de Physique des Houches, a second 2-week event focused on the broader interface of number theory, geometry, and physics.
This book is the result of that exciting meeting, and collects, in 2 volumes, extended versions of thelecture courses, followed byshorter texts on special topics, of eminent mathematicians and physicists.
The present volume has three parts: Conformal Field Theories,Discrete Groups, Renomalization.
The companion volume is subtitled:On Random Matrices, Zeta Functions andDynamical Systems(Springer, 3-540-23189-7).
