Integrability vs. non-integrability in statistical mechanics: March 2 – 6, 2015

Organized by Tetsuo Deguchi, Anthony Guttman, Jean-Michel Maillet, Barry McCoy, and Alexander Zamolodchikov Dates: March 2 – 6, 2015 There is a fundamental paradox in statistical mechanics that we do exact computations on systems with very special symmetry properties and then apply the intuition gained to generic systems which do not have these symmetries. We […]

Gauged Sigma-Models in Two Dimensions: November 3 – 7, 2014

Organized by Sergei Gukov, Nuno Romao, and Samson Shatashvili Dates: November 3 – 7, 2014 Gauged sigma-models from Riemann surfaces to Kaehler targets have been an important ingredient in recent developments at the crossroads of quantum field theory, geometry and topology. Of particular interest are models that exhibit self-duality, since they are more amenable to rigorous treatment — they […]

Homological Methods in Quantum Field Theory: September 29 – October 3, 2014

Application for workshop  is now closed. Organized by Kevin Costello, Ryan Grady, Owen Gwilliam, and Si Li Dates: September 29 – October 3, 2014 The Batalin-Vilkovisky (BV) formalism is a powerful method for constructing quantum field theories, notably gauge and supergravity theories. Recently, the language of derived geometry and homotopical algebra has provided a deeper interpretation […]

Graduate Workshop on Moduli of Curves: July 7 – 18, 2014

Application for workshop is now closed. Organized by Samuel Grushevsky, Robert Lazarsfeld, and Eduard Looijenga Dates: July 7 – 18, 2014 In recent years, moduli of Riemann surfaces (or algebraic curves) have come to play an increasingly central role in several fields of mathematics, including algebraic and complex geometry, topology, Teichmuller dynamics, mathematical physics, and […]
