Kang, Nam-Gyu


Analysis, Probability

Nam-Gyu Kang works on complex analysis and probability theory. With Nikolai Makarov, he developed the probabilistic and complex analytic articulation of the conformal field theory and its applications to Schramm-Loewner evolution (SLE). His research interests also include fine structures of SLE curves; the universality problems for the distribution of eigenvalues of random normal matrices; Ward's identities for finite Boltzmann-Gibbs ensembles and their application to conformal field theory.
