# The distribution of Gaussian multiplicative chaos on the unit interval

@article{Remy2020TheDO, title={The distribution of Gaussian multiplicative chaos on the unit interval}, author={Guillaume Remy and Tunan Zhu}, journal={The Annals of Probability}, year={2020} }

We consider the sub-critical Gaussian multiplicative chaos (GMC) measure defined on the unit interval [0,1] and prove an exact formula for the fractional moments of the total mass of this measure. Our formula includes the case where log-singularities (also called insertion points) are added in 0 and 1, the most general case predicted by the Selberg integral. The idea to perform this computation is to introduce certain auxiliary functions resembling holomorphic observables of conformal field…
