Graph representation of particles

  1. Dec 20, 2011 #1
    Howdy. I'm interested in finding connections between graph theory and particle physics, particularly where particles are represented as nodes on a graph. It's my understanding that this is not a unique idea.

    Would anyone know where I can find some of these models? I'm trying to figure out if what I'm thinking of is workable or is a no-go from the start.

    Thanks!

    BTW, the wiki page doesn't cite also the textbook by Reinhold Blumel, called Advanced QM which also includes a chapter on this topic of quantum graphs.

    Thanks. I don't think that's quite what I'm looking for but it looks like a worthwhile thing to check out.

    There's the 'quantum graphity' approach by Fotini Markopoulou and collaborators, see for instance this article; this has some ties with the string-net liquid of Xiao-Gang Wen and Michael Levin, see here for instance.
