Title: “Decoding the Path Integral: Resurgent Asymptotics and Extreme QFT”

Abstract: There are several important conceptual and computational questions concerning path integrals, which have recently been approached from new perspectives motivated by “resurgent asymptotics”, a novel mathematical formalism that seeks to unify perturbative and non-perturbative physics. I will review the basic ideas behind the connections between resurgent asymptotics and physics, ranging from differential equations to phase transitions and QFT.
