  • Form Factors, Integrability and the AdS/CFT Correspondence 

    GEROTTO, LORENZO (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 off-shell objects in any QFT. In this thesis we will focus on the world-sheet theory describing strings in AdS5xS5, the ...
  • Formal polytypic programs and proofs 

    Verbruggen, Wilhelmina Johanna (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Computer Science & Statistics, 2010)
