Resurgence, Superconductors and Renormalons
In this talk I will cover the recent work of M. Mariño and I (https://arxiv.org/abs/1905.09569, https://arxiv.org/abs/1905.09575) about an application of resurgence to superconductive quantum many-body systems. I will start by introducing the core idea of resurgence. Then, I will overview how to use the TBA to find the perturbative series of the ground-state of the Gaudin-Yang model (and other integrable models) to all orders. Finally, I will show how a resurgence analysis of such series connects to superconductivity and renormalon effects, leading to a concrete conjecture linking the Borel-summability of the perturbative series to the superconductor energy gap.
