In this talk I will introduce the chromatic number of a lattice: It is the least number of colors one needs to color the interiors of the cells of the Voronoi tessellation of a lattice so that no two cells sharing a facet are of the same color. I will introduce two lower bounds for ... Read more about "Coloring the Voronoi tessellation of lattices"

The developments of statistical mechanics and of quantum field theory are among the major achievements of 20th century's science. In the second half of the century, these two subjects started to converge, resulting in some of the most remarkable successes of mathematical physics. At the heart of this convergence lies the conjecture that critical lattice ... Read more about "Statistical Field Theory and the Ising Model"
