A dynamical study of the chirally rotated Schrödinger functional in lattice QCD
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2015)In this work, we present first results from dynamical simulations of the chirally rotated Schrödinger functional (SF) in lattice QCD. More specifically, we discuss the determination of renormalization constants of ... 
A formulation of discrete differential geometry applied to fermionic lattice field theory and its implications for chiral symmetry
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2008)In this thesis, we develop the Geometric Discretization formulation of DiracKahler fermions. We note that the naive definition of chiral synnnetry is only approximately captured in the formulation. However, we show that ... 
A theoretical study of spin filtering and its application to polarizing antiprotons
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2008)There has been much recent research into possible methods of polarizing an antiproton beam, the most promising being spin filtering, the theoretical understanding of which is currently incomplete. The method of polarization ... 
Anisotropic discretisations and practical alltoall propagators for lattice QCD
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2006)In this thesis, we concern ourselves primarily with improving the accuracy of the determination of correlation functions in lattice QCD. We detail two avenues of improvement and implement them both, separately and in ... 
Aspects of ChernSimons theory
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2000)This thesis is based on 4 papers resulting from my work during my stay in the School of Mathematics, Trinity College Dublin. Each of them forms an individual part of the thesis. The relation between these parts is ... 
Aspects of the mathematical theory of water waves
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2007)In this thesis we study various aspects of the mathematical theory of water waves. In Chapter 2 some qualitative results for two recentlyderived nonlinear models for shallow water waves are presented. In the first part ... 
Black holes and string theory : selected topics
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2001)This thesis is divided into three parts. In Part I the concept of holography in the context of the Maldacena conjecture and the threedimensional black hole of Banados, Teitelboim and Zanelli (BTZ) is studied. In particular, ... 
CFTs on Riemann surfaces of genus g ≥ 1
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2014)The purpose of this thesis is to argue that Npoint functions of holomorphic fields in rational conformal field theories can be calculated by methods from algebraic geometry. We establish explicit formulae for the 2point ... 
Comparing the excitations of the periodic flux tube with effective string models.
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2005)The spectrum of a periodic flux tube in pure SU(3) YangMills theory is evaluated nonperturbatively through computations on the lattice in the region from intermediate to long distances (1.5 < L < 4 fm ). For these flux ... 
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 ... 
Discrete exterior calculus with applications to flows and spinors
(Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Mathematics, 2005) 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ...
