Searching for solvability in Statistical Mechanics and beyond using advanced Enumerative Combinatorics
Grant number: DP0770705 | Funding period: 2007 - 2012
Standard models in lattice statistical mechanics provide basic models of a large variety of physical systems from polymers to the spread of forest fires. The ability to write down some kind of solution to these problems provides inestimable insight into their generic and universal behaviour. This project aims to expand the types of "solution" that mathematicians and physicists can write down.
