Symmetry breaking in a gas of bosons - an approach using constructive field theory

Presented by: 
Horst Knoerrer
Wednesday 5th September 2018 - 11:30 to 12:30
INI Seminar Room 1
T.Balaban, J.Feldman, E.Trubowitz and the speaker have the long term goal to rigorously demonstrate symmetry breaking in a gas of weakly interaction bosons hopping on a three-dimensional lattice. Technically, to show that the correlation functions decay at a nonintegrable rate when the chemical potential is sufficiently positive, the nonintegrability reflecting the presence of a long range Goldstone boson mediating the inteaction between quasiparticles in the superfluid condensate.

In addition to a report on the status of this program, I will try to describe in more detail the method of block spin transformations that we use to define and control a renormalization group flow.
