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.
