Renormalisation in quantum field theory and in stochastic partial differential equations: a gentle introduction and some recent developments


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

Workshop Theme

The first workshop will introduce participants to problems that exemplify renormalisation in quantum field theory and stochastic partial differential equations. It will be designed for postdocs and graduate students in probability, pde or mathematical physics and it will serve as the beginning of two courses "Critical statistical mechanics and QFT” and "Stochastic pde and renormalisation", which will run for the duration of the thematic program.
