Title: Irregular conformal blocks and the Stokes phenomena

Speaker: Xia Gu (谷夏)

Affiliation: Yau Mathematical Sciences Center, Tsinghua University (清华大学丘成桐数学科学中心

Time: 16:00-17:00, Tuesday, 31st October, 2023 (UTC+8, Beijing Time)

Venue: Zoom Meeting (ID: 385 442 0225; Passcode: yauc)

Inviter: Jie Gu (顾杰)


In this talk I would like to report our recent work arxiv: 2301.07957. We computed the conformal blocks with one irregular operator in the Liouville theory using the Coloumb Gas method, also known as the free field integral representation. We derived the relation of monodromies and Stokes matrices of these conformal blocks as well as the braiding representations.  Along the way, I would explain the related mathematical terms using simple examples. I may talk about possible applications of our results if time permits.


Xia Gu is currently a graduate student at Yau Mathematical Sciences Center of Tsinghua University, under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Babak Haghighat.


The seminar will be broadcasted online by Zoom.
