Welcome back to the blog, I am taking a break from talking about conformal field theories to rant (non-seriously, I’m too apathetic to actually care) about weather prediction. Specifically I would like to discuss the challenges we face when trying to accurately calculate long term weather forecasts. For far too long I’ve heard complaints aboutContinue reading “The mathematics of weather prediction and why complaining about it won’t help”

## Analytic and numeric implementation of conformal welding

Previously we discussed conformal welding in a fairly general setting. I stated that it had a use in calculating probability distributions of smeared energy densities, my aim is for this post to set the last of the mathematical foundation before I can then delve into the consequences of this. As with last time I willContinue reading “Analytic and numeric implementation of conformal welding”

## An introduction to Conformal Welding

Here we discuss the subject of Conformal Welding, the best resource on this is given by Sharon and Mumford in a paper titled “2D-Shape Analysis Using Conformal Mapping”, I will cover some of the material that is in that paper but it will be refined for my specific interest. As mentioned in my previous blogContinue reading “An introduction to Conformal Welding”

## A whirlwind tour through Quantum Field Theory to Conformal Field Theory

This is designed as a very casual introduction, there are many aspects which are brushed over and ignored. This is because either it isn’t specifically relevant or I didn’t want to bog down the post with unnecessary minutia when the motivation is just to give one an idea of the subject. There are no referencesContinue reading “A whirlwind tour through Quantum Field Theory to Conformal Field Theory”
