Flat Holography: April 4 – 8, 2016

Organized by Arjun Bagchi, Glenn Barnich, Stephane Detournay, Daniel Grumiller, and Joan Simon Dates: April 4 – 8, 2016 Over the last fifteen years our understanding of quantum gravity in string theory has been transformed by the discovery and exploitation of D-branes and the AdS/CFT correspondence in string theory. The holographic principle, positing massive reduction […]

Six-vertex model, dimers, shapes, and all that: March 14 – 18, 2016

Organized by: Pavel Bleher, Vladimir Korepin and Bernard Nienhuis Dates: March 14-18, 2016 The workshop will be devoted to recent results on the six-vertex and related models. The bulk free energy in the six-vertex model was explicitly calculated for periodic boundary conditions by Lieb. Then other boundary conditions were studied. A very interesting case is […]

Turbulent and laminar flows in two dimensions: March 20 – April 21, 2017

Organized by: Gregory Falkovich and Alexander Zamolodchikov Fluid mechanics in two dimensions has wide range of applications and possesses unique mathematical properties which are far from being fully explored and used. A landmark feature of turbulence in two dimensions is an inverse cascade, that is an appearance of large vortices and jets out of multi-scale […]

Mathematics of gauge fields: October 10, 2016 – April 28, 2017

Organized by: Simon Donaldson, Kenji Fukaya, and John Morgan The program will focus on various mathematical aspects of gauge theory, including applications to topology and geometry. This area of study began when Donaldson showed how to use the moduli space of ASD connections on auxiliary SU(2)-bundles of charge one on a Riemannian 4-manifold to study […]

Entanglement and Dynamical Systems: September 7 – December 16, 2016

Organized By: Chris Herzog, Vladimir Korepin and Bruno Nachtergaele.   Entanglement is the property of quantum states that most clearly distinguishes them from classical states. Entanglement is responsible for the fascinating effects in the low-temperature states of matter and the phase transitions between them that are the subject of much research in experimental and theoretical […]

Riemannian Convergence Theory: November 9 – 13, 2015

Organized by Simon Donaldson, Kenji Fukaya, Hans-Joachim Hein, Song Sun Dates: November 9 – 13, 2015 The subject of the workshop is the Gromov-Hausdorff convergence of sequences of Riemannian manifolds under a variety of curvature and other natural geometric bounds. Such Gromov-Hausdorff limits are typically highly singu- lar metric spaces. By studying their regularity properties, […]

Fall 2015 – Seminar Series: Mathematics and Physics of Calogero-Moser-Sutherland systems.

Organized by: Nikita Nekrasov, Alexander Turbiner and Alexander Abanov. Timing: Spring 2015/Fall 2015 Abstract: Calogero-Moser-Sutherland many-body systems arose originally in the 1970’s simultaneously in Nuclear Physics, Mathematical Physics and Solid State Physics. Since then they were found in some incarnations in diverse branches of physics and mathematics such as the theory of quantum Hall effect, […]

Toric Kahler geometry: October 5 – 9, 2015

Organized by Xiuxiong Chen, Simon Donaldson Following the seminal ideas of Calabi, the existence of extremal and contant scalar curvature is a central problem in Kahler geometry. Over the past 30 years most attention has been paid to the special case of Kahler-Einstein metrics, but there is now renewed interest in the more general situation, […]

Graduate Workshop on Topological Quantum Field Theory: September 14 – 18, 2015

Dates: September 14-18, 2015 Organized by: Anton Kapustin and Alexander Kirillov Topological Quantum Field Theory (TQFT) was first introduced by Witten at the end of 1980s as physical theory. It was immediately followed by an avalanche of works by many authors, both mathematicians and physicists, among them Atiyah, Reshetikhin and Turaev, Segal,.. who showed TQFT […]
