12/04/21: Feynman Integrals for a Mathematical Audience with Matthew von Hippel

Boston Computation Club

December 4, 2021

58 minutes

Matt von Hippel is (a) my cousin and (b) a professor at the Niels Bohr International Academy in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he researches scattering amplitudes in gauge and gravity theories.  Matt received his PhD in 2014 from SUNY Stony Brook, and from 2014 to 2017 he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Perimeter Institute.  Today Matt joined us to discuss Feynman integrals.  Apparently "Feynman integral" means different things to different people; the kind discussed here are those associated with "Feynman diagrams".  The talk was engaging and fun, and at the end Matt fielded mathematical questions from the audience, which included both usual BCC members and some NEU mathematics faculty.  This was a fun one and I encourage you to watch it, if you didn't make the live event!
