In this work we construct Liouville quantum gravity on an annulus in the complex plane. This construction is aimed at providing a rigorous mathematical framework to the work of theoretical physicists initiated by Polyakov in 1981. It is also a very important example of a conformal field theory (CFT). Results have already been obtained on the Riemann sphere and on the unit disk so this paper will follow the same approach. The case of the annulus contains two difficulties: it is a surface with… 

The moduli of annuli in random conformal geometry

. We obtain exact formulae for three basic quantities in random conformal geometry that depend on the modulus of an annulus. The first is for the law of the modulus of the Brownian annulus describing

Stochastic quantization of Liouville conformal field theory

We study a nonlinear stochastic heat equation forced by a space-time white noise on closed surfaces, with nonlinearity $e^{\beta u}$. This equation corresponds to the stochastic quantization of the

Introduction to the Liouville quantum gravity metric

Liouville quantum gravity (LQG) is a one-parameter family of models of random fractal surfaces which first appeared in the physics literature in the 1980s. Recent works have constructed a metric

In a remarkable paper in 2008, Fyodorov and Bouchaud conjectured an exact formula for the density of the total mass of (sub-critical) Gaussian multiplicative chaos (GMC) associated to the Gaussian

FZZ formula of boundary Liouville CFT via conformal welding

Liouville Conformal Field Theory (LCFT) on the disk describes the conformal factor of the quantum disk, which is the natural random surface in Liouville quantum gravity with disk topology. Fateev,

Liouville conformal field theory (LCFT) is considered on a simply connected domain with boundary, specializing to the case where the Liouville potential is integrated only over the boundary of the

Integrability of the conformal loop ensemble

We demonstrate that the conformal loop ensemble (CLE) has a rich integrable structure by establishing exact formulas for two CLE observables. The first describes the joint moments of the conformal

Liouville conformal field theory on Riemann surface with boundaries

In this note, we give a unified rigorous construction for the Liouville conformal field theory on compact Riemann surface with boundaries for γ ∈ (0, 2] and prove a certain type of Markov property.

Weak Liouville quantum gravity metrics with matter central charge $\mathbf{c} \in (-\infty, 25)$

Physics considerations suggest that a theory of Liouville quantum gravity (LQG) should exist for all values of matter central charge c ∈ (−∞, 25). Probabilists have rigorously defined LQG as a random



Liouville quantum gravity on complex tori

In this paper, we construct Liouville Quantum Field Theory (LQFT) on the toroidal topology in the spirit of the 1981 seminal work by Polyakov [Phys. Lett. B 103, 207 (1981)]. Our approach follows the

Liouville quantum gravity on the unit disk

Our purpose is to pursue the rigorous construction of Liouville Quantum Field Theory on Riemann surfaces initiated by F. David, A. Kupiainen and the last two authors in the context of the Riemann

Liouville Quantum Gravity on the Riemann Sphere

In this paper, we rigorously construct Liouville Quantum Field Theory on the Riemann sphere introduced in the 1981 seminal work by Polyakov. We establish some of its fundamental properties like

The Annular Report on Non-Critical String Theory

Recent results on the annulus partition function in Liouville field theory are applied to non-critical string theory, both below and above the critical dimension. Liouville gravity coupled to $c\le

Polyakov’s formulation of $2d$ bosonic string theory

Using probabilistic methods, we first define Liouville quantum field theory on Riemann surfaces of genus $\mathbf{g}\geq 2$ and show that it is a conformal field theory. We use the partition function

Liouville quantum gravity and KPZ

AbstractConsider a bounded planar domain D, an instance h of the Gaussian free field on D, with Dirichlet energy (2π)−1∫D∇h(z)⋅∇h(z)dz, and a constant 0≤γ<2. The Liouville quantum gravity measure on

Liouville quantum gravity and the Brownian map I: The QLE(8/3,0) metric

Liouville quantum gravity (LQG) and the Brownian map (TBM) are two distinct models of measure-endowed random surfaces. LQG is defined in terms of a real parameter $\gamma$, and it has long been

Lecture notes on Gaussian multiplicative chaos and Liouville Quantum Gravity

The purpose of these notes, based on a course given by the second author at Les Houches summer school, is to explain the probabilistic construction of Polyakov's Liouville quantum gravity using the
