Renormalizability of Liouville Quantum Gravity at the Seiberg bound

Abstract : Liouville Quantum Field Theory can be seen as a probabilistic theory of 2d Riemannian metrics e φ(z) dz 2 , conjecturally describing scaling limits of discrete 2d-random surfaces. The law of the random field φ in LQFT depends on weights α ∈ R that in classical Riemannian geometry parametrize power law singularities in the metric. A rigorous construction of LQFT has been carried out in [2] in the case when the weights are below the so called Seiberg bound: α < Q where Q parametrizes the random surface model in question. These correspond to conical singularities in the classical setup. In this paper, we construct LQFT in the case when the Seiberg bound is saturated which can be seen as the probabilistic version of Riemann surfaces with cusp singularities. Their construction involves methods from Gaussian Multiplicative Chaos theory at criticality.
