Professor at the Mathematics department of the University of Geneva. Mostly working at the intersection of probability theory and statistical physics.

With a colleague, we have just finished writing an introductory book on the (classical) equilibrium statistical physics of lattice spin systems, from a mathematically rigorous point of view. It is currently in the hands of its publisher (Cambridge University Press). A more detailed description of the project, as well as the latest version of the book can be found here. (Minor) corrections will still be possible when we receive the galleys, so your feedback (typos, errors, comments) would be more than welcome!

Hi Yvan Velenik--- I am aware that the negative comments on the paper by Lubos are harsh, but they are relatively accurate. It is important however not to tar and feather people who are sticking their neck out, and perhaps you can help make sure that the tone for the reviews is encouraging towards work, not overharsh or dismissive, even when the work is totally wrong.
