Speaker: Mr Imam Alam (PhD Student, Theoretical Physics)


In recent years, fascinating connections have been observed between

two-dimensional solvable statistical models at criticality and the theory

of discrete complex analysis. In this talk, we explore their consequences

in the models with achiral Z_N symmetry for general N. We show that the

analogue of conformal symmetry in the discrete setting is a powerful tool

to analyze the integrability of the lattice model.
