OPE of the energy-momentum tensor correlator and the gluon condensate operator in massless QCD to three-loop orderJul 25 2014Mar 17 2016The correlator of two gluonic operators plays an important role for example in transport properties of a Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) or in sum rules for glueballs. In [1] an operator product expansion (OPE) at zero temperature was performed for the correlators ... More

The dual sector of the φ^4 Theory in 4DAug 27 1998The one-component $\lambda\phi^4$ theory in four dimensions in the spontaneously broken symmetry phase has a non-trivial, non-perturbative sector which can be studied by means of a duality transformation of its Ising limit. Duality maps this theory to ... More

Affinity and Fluctuations in a Mesoscopic NoriaFeb 11 2014We exhibit the invariance of cycle affinities in finite state Markov processes under various natural probabilistic constructions, for instance under conditioning and under a new combinatorial construction that we call ``drag and drop''. We show that cycle ... More
