CR Singularities in condimension 2
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2013)In this thesis we study the real submanifolds of codimension 2 in a complex manifold near a CR singularity. The thesis has 3 chapters. In Chapter 1 we shall make a small introduction where we will remind some basic notions ... 
Cₒ(X)structure in C*algebras, multiplier algebras and tensor products
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2015)We begin in Chapter 2 with an introduction to the various notions of a bundle of C*algebras that have appeared throughout the literature, and clarify the definitions of upper and lowersemicontinuous C*bundles not ... 
Decay widths from Euclidean quantum field theory a scalar model and applications to QCD
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2009)Lüscher provided a method by which the Euclidean correlation function, used in lattice field theories, can be used to evaluate the scattering phase shift, sidestepping the MaianiTesta Theorem. This result is explored in ... 
Discrete exterior calculus with applications to flows and spinors
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2005) 
Efficient coding of sensory stimuli
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2011)An important goal of mathematical neuroscience is to understand the coding principles governing the behaviour of sensory systems under stimulation. Here, we investigate the theory of efficient coding in nenral sensory ... 
Elements of an operator calculus
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2001)The operational calculus developed by the Irish School of the Vienna Development Method (VDM) has a life of its own independent of its applications. This thesis is interested in the operational calculus that arose from the ... 
Extending geometric discretisation
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2002)Geometric discretisation (GD) [1] is a novel approach capable of capturing topological properties, based on a correspondence between discrete objects and operations on a triangulation with continuum ones on a manifold. We ... 
Form Factors, Integrability and the AdS/CFT Correspondence
(Trinity College Dublin. School of Mathematics. Discipline of Pure & Applied Mathematics, 2018)Form factors are matrix elements of local operators between scattering states, and are interesting offshell objects in any QFT. In this thesis we will focus on the worldsheet theory describing strings in AdS5xS5, the ... 
Free Field Representation and Form Factors of the Chiral GrossNeveu Model
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2013)The process of using the free field representation to construct form factors of two dimensional integrable models is very promising. In this thesis, this procedure is analysed and adapted for application to the chiral ... 
Higher Spin Theories in Twistor Space
(Trinity College Dublin. School of Mathematics. Discipline of Pure & Applied Mathematics, 2018)In this thesis we formulate an action principle for conformal higher spin theory on twistor space. For this theory, and for a unitary subsector that we identify, we construct an MHV amplitude expansion by considering ... 
Homotopical and effective methods for associative algebras
(Trinity College Dublin. School of Mathematics. Discipline of Pure & Applied Mathematics, 2021)This thesis contains four main chapters based on four different papers. In the third chapter, we solve the problem of computing the minimal model of an arbitrary associative monomial algebra. Our methods are combinatorial ... 
Integrable lattice models for strongly correlated electrons
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2013)This thesis is dedicated to the study of a new family of integrable lattice models for strongly correlated electrons, namely the Hubbard Shastry models. The techniques of exactly solvable models, and in particular those ... 
Integrable systems, separation of variables and the YangBaxter equation
(Trinity College Dublin. School of Mathematics. Discipline of Pure & Applied Mathematics, 2021)This thesis is based on the author’s publications during the course of his PhD studies and focuses on various aspects of the field of quantum integrable systems. The aim of this thesis is to develop the socalled separation ... 
Interferometry and nonequilibrium noise in the fractional quantum Hall effect
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2014)We study theoretical aspects of fractional quantum Hall devices based on tunnelling point contacts. The fractional quantum Hall effect is the prime example of a (2 + 1) dimensional system with nontrivial topological order. ... 
Large scale parallel network simulation
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2004)Simulation is one of the primary tools used in studying computer networks. However the difficulties of simulating a network grow with its size. With the hardware resources currently available it is not feasible to simulate ... 
Logarithmic asymptotics in Queueing Theory and Risk Theory
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2000)This thesis addresses four distinct, but related, problems. All four involve large deviation theory. The first problem is to relate the logarithmic asymptotics of the single server queue length distribution to the long ... 
Methods for calculating option prices with earlyexercise features
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2006)In this dissertation we deal with two distinct methods for pricing financial options with earlyexercise features. First we use finite difference methods to calculate the prices, examining in particular two new schemes ... 
Methods of ascent and descent in multivariable spectral theory
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2009)In this dissertation the theory of ascent and descent for a linear operator acting on a vector space is extended to arbitrary sets of operators and applied to the study of joint spectra for finite commuting systems of bounded ... 
Modern aspects of topological gauge theories  Polynomial invariants and mock modular forms
(Trinity College Dublin. School of Mathematics. Discipline of Pure & Applied Mathematics, 2019)In this dissertation we present new results in the field of topologically twisted gauge theories evaluated on compact fourmanifolds without boundary. We focus on the DonaldsonWitten theory, that is the N = 2 topologically ... 
Multidimensional second order generalised stochastic processes on locally compact Abelian groups
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2004)This thesis is concerned with the harmonic analysis of multidimensional generalised stochastic processes on locally compact Abelian groups. A multidimensional generalised stochastic process is a continuous linear operator ...
