Literature of Friday 17th April

 This is the paper I selected for the literature:

"Beyond the thin-wall approximation: precise numerical computation of prefactor in false vacuum decay", G. V. Dunne and H. Min. hep-th/0511156

It is not a new one, but it looks interesting; it was suggested by Marino during the course on non-perturbative methods in QFT and Claudio confirmed his interest in this paper.

There are also two related papers in which the same topic is reviewed and extended:

Literature of Monday 26th May
I was planning to present this paper by Gasperini


but Claudio today suggest me to change because it is too much "foggy"

So I'm triyng to prepare a "classical" paper by Weinberg and Witten suggested by Riccardo...I had a fast read to the paper and I had some difficulties in the understanding of technical ditails

I don't know how much deep will be my understanding of the paper because there are only few day to study it... but if you try to read it we can discuss together on monday


This is the link to the paper.
