Modeling the 21cm signal
Upcoming observations of the 21cm signal will probe the properties of the first stars and galaxies that formed in the universe. As the signal is shaped by many different processes, modeling will be required in order to extract information about these first radiation sources. In the talk I will describe ongoing efforts of modeling the signal, focusing on effects that are commonly neglected, but are found to have a significant impact on predictions.

Emptiness Formation Probability and the Painleve V equation

Abstract: The Emptiness Formation Probability is the probability of finding L consecutive down spins in the ground state of a spin 1/2 chain.
It represents perhaps the simplest correlator that can be calculated in a quantum spin chain. I will discuss this quantity in the XY spin chain, including the best-known example of the Ising spin chain in transverse field. It is shown, in particular,  that in the scaling limit, the Emptiness Formation Probability is the tau-function of a Painleve V equation.
