Computing the spectral action for fuzzy geometries: from random noncommutative geometry to bi-tracial multimatrix models

A fuzzy geometry is a certain type of spectral triple whose Dirac operator crucially turns out to be a finite matrix. This notion was introduced in [J. Barrett, J. Math. Phys. 56, 082301 (2015)] and

Renormalization in Quantum Field Theory and the Riemann–Hilbert Problem I: The Hopf Algebra Structure of Graphs and the Main Theorem

Abstract:This paper gives a complete selfcontained proof of our result announced in [6] showing that renormalization in quantum field theory is a special instance of a general mathematical procedure

Formal multidimensional integrals, stuffed maps, and topological recursion

We show that the large N expansion in the multi-trace 1 formal hermitian matrix model is governed by the topological recursion of [Eynard and Orantin, 2007] with initial conditions. In terms of a 1d

On Multimatrix Models Motivated by Random Noncommutative Geometry II: A Yang-Mills-Higgs Matrix Model

We continue the study of fuzzy geometries inside Connes’ spectral formalism and their relation to multimatrix models. In this companion paper to Pérez-Sánchez (Ann Henri Poincaré 22:3095–3148, 2021,

Large [ital N] matrix models modified by terms of the form [ital g]([ital Tr][Phi][sup [ital n]])[sup 2] generate random surfaces which touch at isolated points. Matrix model results indicate that,

Noncommutative Geometry

Noncommutative Spaces It was noticed a long time ago that various properties of sets of points can be restated in terms of properties of certain commutative rings of functions over those sets. In

Loop Models, Random Matrices and Planar Algebras

We define matrix models that converge to the generating functions of a wide variety of loop models with fugacity taken in sets with an accumulation point. The latter can also be seen as moments of a


The non-perturbative formulation of 2-dimensional quantum gravity in terms of the large-N limit of matrix models is studied to include the effects of higher order curvature terms. This leads to

The universal RG machine

Functional Renormalization Group Equations constitute a powerful tool to encode the perturbative and non-perturbative properties of a physical system. We present an algorithm to systematically
