Summation of divergent series: an invention of the devil or a blessing for physics

by Prof. Fernando Barbero (Instituto de Estructura de la Materia, CSIC)

Tuesday, 6 June 2017 from to (Europe/Madrid)
at Campus Burjassot ( 4-4-4426 - Seminari Física Teòrica )
Description
Divergent series play an interesting and important role in Physics. The purpose of the talk is to review the main summation methods for these objects and explain their main features. Special attention will be devoted to abstract summation. Other issues related to the use of series in Physics (in particular the conditionally convergent ones) will be discussed.
