Transforming Tradition: Richard Courant in Göttingen
Richard Courant had a knack for being at the right place at the right time. He came to Gottingen in 1907, just when Hilbert and Minkowski were delving into fast-breaking developments in electronExpand
POLYNOMIAL SOLUTIONS OF qKZ EQUATION AND GROUND STATE OF XXZ SPIN CHAIN AT = −1/2
Integral formulae for polynomial solutions of the quantum Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov equations associated with the R-matrix of the six-vertex model are considered. It is proved that when the deformationExpand
