Research Interests:

Professor Bender's major research efforts in recent years have fallen into six main categories: (1) developing a new technique for obtaining nonperturbative information about a quantum field theory by expanding the Green's functions as series in powers of D, the dimension of space-time, (2) discovering a new and promising kind of continuum field-theoretic perturbation expansion called the delta expansion, (3) inventing methods for finding the analytical solution of operator differential equations, (4) studying strong-coupling and lattice approximations in quantum field theory, (5) originating the field of large-order behavior of perturbation theory, and (6) miscellaneous research projects. In all six areas he has applied sophisticated analytical and numerical techniques. These research areas are described in detail below. Professor Bender will continue to do research in all of these areas during the proposed grant period.
