EPSRC First Grant
"From conformal loop ensembles to conformal field theory"
home page of Dr. Benjamin Doyon

Under the EPSRC grant EP/H051619/1, I am supporting one post-doctoral assistant, Dr. Thomas Koeppe, 1 September 2011 - 31 October 2012.

The general project is concerned with establishing a connection between conformal loop ensembles (CLE) and conformal field theory (CFT). In particular, it aims at generalising in various directions the works [22, 23], about the construction of the stress-energy tensor in CLE, and the relation between this CFT field and "conformal derivatives".

I am also supervising two MSc students: Jonathan Desponds (in a one-year "stage" from École Normale Supérieure de Paris), on a project concerned with descendents of the stress-energy tensor in CLE; and Rostam King, on a project concerned with the bounday stress-energy tensor in CLE.
