Tel Aviv University Dear all, This week at the Horowitz seminar on Probability, Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems at Tel Aviv University we are happy to have: Speaker: Sasha Sodin, IAS Title: A 2D gradient model with non-convex interaction Date: Monday, April 30 Time: 14:30 Place: Schreiber 309 Abstract: The talk will be about a statistical mechanics model on the 2D lattice. We shall define it, and discuss the connection to height models, the six-vertex model, and dipole gas (all of these will be defined as well). Also, we shall discuss the conjectured phase diagram, and explain which parts are rigorously justified. Based on discussions with David Brydges and Tom Spencer.
