Event Description 

Eugene Feenberg Memorial Lecture in Physics

Reflection positivity is a useful tool in mathematics, statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics. A recent application is to the determination of the possible distortions of the hexagonal graphene lattice. Other applications, such as to potential theory, the flux-phase problem, Peierls instability and stripe formation, will also be given.
