Folding RNA: a confluence of biology, mathematics, and physics
Anthony Zee, Kavli Institute of Physics, University of California at Santa Barbara
I will describe a long-standing project to fold RNA using some topological aspects of matrix field theory in the large-N limit, in particular some recent work with Orland, Vernizzi, and others. The problem involves elements of biology, mathematics, and physics. The talk will be self-contained, aiming at an interdisciplinary audience.
Refreshments are served at 14:45.
