I review some recent work where ideas and methods from Quantum Field Theory have proved useful in probability and vice versa. The topics discussed include the use of Renormalization Group theory in Stochastic Partial Differential Equations driven by space-time white noise and the use of the theory of Gaussian Multiplicative Chaos in the study of two dimensional Liouville Conformal Field theory.

Renormalization Group and Stochastic PDEs

We develop a renormalization group (RG) approach to the study of existence and uniqueness of solutions to stochastic partial differential equations driven by space-time white noise. As an example, we

Conformal Ward and BPZ Identities for Liouville quantum field theory

In this work, we continue the constructive probabilistic approach to the Liouville Quantum Field theory (LQFT) started in [8]. We give a rigorous construction of the stress energy tensor in LQFT and

Paracontrolled distributions and the 3-dimensional stochastic quantization equation

We prove the existence and uniqueness of a local solution to the periodic renormalized $\Phi^4_3$ model of stochastic quantisation using the method of controlled distributions introduced recently by

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

Conformal field theory on the plane

We provide an introduction to conformal field theory on the plane in the conformal bootstrap approach. We introduce the main ideas of the bootstrap approach to quantum field theory, and how they

The renormalization group and critical phenomena

1. Introduction This paper has three parts. The first part is a simplified presentation of the basic ideas of the renormalization group and the ε expansion applied to critical phenomena , following

Quantum Physics: A Functional Integral Point of View

This book is addressed to one problem and to three audiences. The problem is the mathematical structure of modem physics: statistical physics, quantum mechanics, and quantum fields. The unity of

Renormalization of Generalized KPZ Equation

We use Renormalization Group to prove local well posedness for a generalized KPZ equation introduced by H. Spohn in the context of stochastic hydrodynamics. The equation requires the addition of
