We study the production of entropy in the context of a nonequilibrium chiral phase transition. The dynamical symmetry breaking is modeled by a Langevin equation for the order parameter coupled to the Bjorken dynamics of a quark plasma. We investigate the impact of dissipation and noise on the entropy and explore the possibility of reheating for cro...

Inflationary perturbations in multi-field theories can exhibit a transient tachyonic instability as a consequence of their non-trivial motion in the internal field space. When an effective single-field description is applicable, the resulting theory is characterized by fluctuations that propagate with an $imaginary$ speed of sound. We use the effec...

We propose a new application of random tensor theory to studies of non-linear random flows in many variables. Our focus is on non-linear resonant systems which often emerge as weakly non-linear approximations to problems whose linearized perturbations possess highly resonant spectra of frequencies (non-linear Schr\"odinger equations for Bose-Einste...

We revisit in this paper the problem of connectivity correlations in the Fortuin-Kasteleyn cluster representation of the two-dimensional $Q$-state Potts model conformal field theory. In a recent work [M. Picco, S. Ribault and R. Santachiara, SciPost Phys. 1, 009 (2016); arXiv:1607.07224], results for the four-point functions were obtained, based on...

We compute the memory effect produced at the black hole horizon by a transient gravitational shockwave. As shown by Hawking, Perry, and Strominger (HPS) such a gravitational wave produces a deformation of the black hole geometry which from future null infinity is seen as a Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS) supertranslation. This results in a diffeomorphic ...

The $\mathfrak{osp}(2,N)$-BF formulation of dilaton supergravity in two dimensions is considered. We introduce a consistent class of asymptotic conditions preserved by the extended superreparametrization group of the thermal circle at infinity. In the $N=1$ and $N=2$ cases the phase space foliation in terms of orbits of the super-Virasoro group all...

We revisit the renormalisation group equations (RGE) for general renormalisable gauge theories at one- and two-loop accuracy. We identify and correct various mistakes in the literature for the $\beta$-functions of the dimensionful Lagrangian parameters (the fermion mass, the bilinear and trilinear scalar couplings) as well as the dimensionless quar...

We introduce a family of tensor quantum-mechanical models based on irreducible rank-$3$ representations of $\mathrm{Sp}(N)$. In contrast to irreducible tensor models with $\mathrm{O}(N)$ symmetry, the fermionic tetrahedral interaction does not vanish and can therefore support a melonic large $N$ limit. The strongly-coupled regime has a very analogo...

We, for the first time, report a first-principle proof of the equations of state used in the hydrodynamic theory for integrable systems, termed generalized hydrodynamics (GHD). The proof makes full use of the graph theoretic approach to TBA that was proposed recently. This approach is purely combinatorial and relies only on common structures shared...
