Brownian Winding Fields

  • Yves Le JanEmail author
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2252)


The purpose of the present note is to review and improve the convergence of the renormalized winding fields introduced in Camia et al. (Nucl Phys B 902:483–507, 2016) and van de Brug et al. (Electron J Probab 23(81):17, 2018).
