Dimensionally reduced gravitational Chern-Simons term and its kink
Abstract When the gravitational Chern–Simons term is reduced from 3 to 2 dimensions, the lower dimensional theory supports a symmetry breaking solution and an associated kink. Kinks in generalExpand

Theta vacua and boundary conditions of the Schwinger-Dyson equations
Quantum field theories and Matrix models have a far richer solution set than is normally considered, due to the many boundary conditions which must be set to specify a solution of the Schwinger-DysonExpand

Programming a Parallel Computer: The Ersatz Brain Project
TLDR
We propose the Ersatz Brain Project to design a massively parallel, brain like computer based on the design of the mammalian cerebral cortex. Expand

Complexified path integrals and the phases of quantum field theory
Abstract The path integral by which quantum field theories are defined is a particular solution of a set of functional differential equations arising from the Schwinger action principle. In factExpand

Complex Langevin Equations and Schwinger-Dyson Equations
Abstract Stationary distributions of complex Langevin equations are shown to be the complexified path integral solutions of the Schwinger–Dyson equations of the associated quantum field theory.Expand

THE HISTORY OF THE GURALNIK, HAGEN AND KIBBLE DEVELOPMENT OF THE THEORY OF SPONTANEOUS SYMMETRY BREAKING AND GAUGE PARTICLES
I discuss historical material about the beginning of the ideas of spontaneous symmetry breaking and particularly the role of the paper by Guralnik, Hagen and Kibble in this development. I do soExpand

The Source Galerkin method: fermionic formulation
Abstract We present a new deterministic, numerical method to solve fermion field theories. The Source Galerkin approach is based on finding solutions Z [ J ] to the lattice functional equations forExpand

Effective potential for complex Langevin equations
Abstract We construct an effective potential for the complex Langevin equation on a lattice. We show that the minimum of this effective potential gives the space–time and Langevin time average of theExpand
