CM Journal Club in 120 PAN
Speaker: Michael Schuett
Subject: Critical Phenomena in Hyperbolic Space

In the journal club we will discuss the behavior of a N-component φ4 -model in hyperbolic space based on Ref.1 I will motivate why such a study might be relevant for condensed matter physics and i will briefly sketch the derivation of the critical behavior of the model. I will follow the aforementioned reference and supplement the discussion for clarity.
