New Methods for Feynman Integrals

Europe/London
Description
Feynman integrals are an extremely powerful method for evaluating perturbative predictions of quantum field theories. The methodology has been first developed in particle physics, but has found many applications also in other areas of theoretical physics and in mathematics. The purpose of this workshop is to present latest developments in this field in pedagogical lectures that should be accessible to PhD students in a format that provides ample time for discussion. The lectures will be given by Vladimir Smirnov (Division of Theoretical High-Energy Physics, Moscow State University) and Alexander Smirnov (Laboratory of Information Systems for Mathematics, Moscow State University), who will be based at the IPPP as Visiting Professors from middle of November to middle of December 2008. Additional material relating to the lectures can be found at http://theory.sinp.msu.ru/~smirnov/Durham.html
