Sarita Rosenstock (pictured) and Ben Feintzeig, third and fourth year LPS graduate students, respectively, have been invited to speak at the Irvine-Munich Workshop on the Foundations of Classical and Quantum Field Theories. The workshop will be hosted by the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy on December 14. Rosenstock will present a paper called "On Holonomy and Fiber Bundle Interpretations of Yang-Mills Theory,” which describes her recent work on the relationship between the two most widely discussed interpretations of an important class of physical theories known as Yang-Mills theory. Feintzeig's paper, entitled "Unitary Inequivalence in Classical Systems and the Interpretation of Quantum Theories," shows that a major problem in the foundations of quantum field theory also arises in some contexts in classical theories.
