Statistical physics covers a host of different things, covering
everything that can be formulated in terms of something analogous to a
Boltzmann distribution, which includes e.g. the critical phenomena in
the thermodynamics of various systems, and the (Euclidean) Path
Integral formulation of various Field Theories.
Here I have been interested in various subjects, like Lattice Gauge
Theory for e.g. Yang Mills fields, Random Surfaces as models for
String models, the thermodynamics of various kinds of polymers.
Presently, I am interested in the transformation of the thermodynamics
of certain kinds of interacting polymers to a field theory, by
rewriting the interactions as quadratic expressions, which can be
linearized by means of a (functional) Fourier transform. THis allows
to integrate out the original coordinates in favour of a resulting
