Gabi Zafrir (Stony Brook University) |  Understanding quantum field theory with dimensional reduction |


The world around us is made of particles that interact through various forces. The behavior of the particles and the forces between them is described by
quantum field theory, which as such is of great importance in many branches of physics. Nevertheless, quantum field theory presents many challenges, notably
with regard to its behavior at strong coupling, that is when the interactions become strong. In this talk I’ll review some recent progress in studying various
aspects of quantum field theory at strong coupling using the idea of dimensional reduction.
