My student David Reeb will be attending this meeting at ECT Trento next week:
Sign Problems and Complex Actions
workshop at ECT* Trento
Monday March 2 - Friday March 6 2009
organizers: Gert Aarts (Swansea University) & Shailesh Chandrasekharan (Duke University)
I would really have liked to go but my wife is giving a talk at Emory at the same time so I am stuck at home watching the twins. No Alps for me :-/
Here are the excellent slides for David's talk. The first section is a nice introduction to Monte Carlo methods in quantum field theory, which he made for a local seminar here in the ITS (for non-experts).
