p-adic Strings at Finite Temperature

Wednesday 27th June 2012 - 17:45 to 18:00
INI Seminar Room 1
We study the finite temperature theory of p-adic string models. We analyze the partition function and main thermodynamic properties arising from perturbative thermal loops. We find that the thermal properties of these non-local field theories can be interpreted either as contributions of standard thermal modes with energies proportional to the temperature, or inverse thermal modes with energies proportional to the inverse of the temperature, leading to a thermal duality at leading order analogous to the well known T-duality of string theory.
