The Homogeneous and Symmetric Space Sine-Gordon Models: a Review

Regular Seminar Olalla Castro Alvaredo (City University London)

14:00 IC
room Huxley 503

The homogeneous and symmetric space sine-Gordon models (HSG- and SSSG-models, for short) are two groups of two-dimensional integrable quantum field theories which belong to a larger class of models: the non-Abelian affine Toda field theories. In this talk I intend to review the main results known up to date about these two classes of models, paying special attention to my own contributions to the subject. These contributions have focused on the one hand, on the development of the bootstrap program for the HSG-models (TBA-analysis, computation of form factors and correlation functions etc) and, on the other hand, on the study of the quantum integrability and spectrum of a subset of the SSSG-models, known as split models.
