QFT on manifolds with boundary: Edge states, Horizon states and stability

T.R. Govindarajan
Chennai Mathematical Institute.


We will explore novel effects in quantum physics on manifolds with boundary. These arise in quantum hall effect (edges states) or blackhole physics (horizon states). We will explore underlying questions like self adjoint Hamiltonians, unitary evolution, and their implications.
