An introduction to Pirogov-Sinai Theory

Bob Krueger (UIUC MATH)

Abstract: I will introduce a few spin models on lattices and discuss the usual polymer models. Then I will describe the polymer model at the basis of Pirogov-Sinai Theory. I hope to get to a recent result of Helmuth, Perkins, and Regts which uses Pirogov-Sinai Theory to efficiently sample from these spin models at low temperatures. I assume no knowledge of statistical physics.
