Tame the beast: physics at strong coupling


Strong coupling cannot be avoided in the description of physical systems. I propose a definition based on the path integral formalism, quickly review some approaches for strongly-coupled systems and propose a notion of local strong coupling, where some operators of the theory can be computed with a semiclassical expansion around a trajectory that is locally dominant in special sectors of the theory.
