[Lecture] PKU Lectures on Matrix Model
Jul. 11, 2022

Speaker: Hiroshi Itoyama

Time: 9:00 am, July, 2022, GMT+8

Lecture Series:

This lecture series started on July 8. The upcoming events include:
July 11:  2d gravity (and c<1 noncritical strings) I)
July 12:  LEEA of susy gauge theory & 2d-4d connection through matrices I)
July 14:  2d gravity (and c<1 noncritical strings) II)
July 15:  LEEA of susy gauge theory & 2d-4d connection through matrices II)

Venue: Zoom Meeting ID: 830 1645 9376 Password: 202207


The goal of the Lectures is to understand roles played by matrix models in relativistic quantum field theory (and string theory). We will mostly focus on the simplest type of the solvable matrix model, namely, hermitian one to get the ideas, occasionally referring to unitary, complex or two matrix generalizations.
We will head for two major applications in the past:2d quantum gravity (and c<1 noncritical strings) and LEEA (low energy effective action) of 4d susy gauge theory by matrices. The lectures will be primarily intended for first and second year graduate students having basic understanding of quantum field theory while advanced undergraduate students can benefit from them.


In 1979, he received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Tokyo, Japan. He received his Ph.D. degree from Columbia University, USA in 1985. From 1985 to 1988, he served as a research associate at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in USA. From 1988 to 1992, he served as a  research associate at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, SUNY, Stony Brook, USA. From 1992 to 2002, he was an associate professor at Osaka University, Japan, and from 2002 to 2022, he was a professor at Osaka City University, Japan. From 2018 till now, he has served as Director of Nambu Yoichiro Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics(NITEP), Osaka Metropolitan University, Japan.
