Examples

  • Just to be clear, the 8+ years I mentioned is what I often see for people working on non-string formal particle theory topics such as nonperturbative QCD (e.g. Schwinger-Dyson equations and that kind of stuff).

    Matter v Antimatter II: Electroweak Baryogenesis

  • I presume this is what you mean in the nonperturbative analogy CV page about losing potential energy information with the simple HO

    Matter v Antimatter II: Electroweak Baryogenesis

  • As I discussed in my post on this, the usual way people think about electroweak baryogenesis is that baryon number violating processes (occurring through nonperturbative field configurations known as sphalerons) take place during the electroweak phase transition.

    The Results of Resonance

  • My post on anomalous baryon number violation in the standard model described the way in which nonperturbative effects allow for processes in which more baryons than antibaryons are produced.

    Matter v Antimatter III: Leptogenesis

  • Other: It's not nonperturbative quantization of diffeomorphism-invariant gauge theory.

    Slimbo-Poll: It's Not Rocket Science

  • In 1995-98 these incredible new nonperturbative tools were developed, and over the next few years many string theorists worked on the problem of applying them to less and less supersymmetric situations, culminating in the construction of stabilized vacua.

    Guest Post: Joe Polchinski on Science or Sociology?

  • Perhaps there are asymmetric decays of heavy particles in your theory, or maybe a way to make nonperturbative baryon number violating transitions work.
