Organized by Rick Kenyon, Jan de Gier, and Bernard Nienhuis Random tilings in two dimensions provide an interesting class of discrete geometric models that exhibit critical behavior and hence are expected to be described by conformal eld theories and SLEs. The random tiling of lozenges, being free fermionic and describable in terms of […]

Facets of Integrability: Random Patterns, Stochastic Processes, Hydrodynamics, Gauge Theories and Condensed Matter Systems Organized by: Ilia Binder, Andrei Okounkov, Alexander Abanov, Eldad Bettelheim, Ilya Gruzberg, Seung-Yeop Lee and Razvan Teodorescu Once mathematicians got interested in random matrix theory two decades ago, it was recognized that methods previously used in integrable non-linear equations, could also […]
Organized by Peter Ozsvath, Yakov Eliashberg, Robert Lipshitz and Mohammed Abouzaid The workshop will explore recent developments in symplectic topology and low-dimensional topology, with an emphasis on connections between the two. Topics will include Heegaard Floer homology and its relation to combinatorial and geometric 3-manifold topology; contact geometry and its interaction with low-dimensional topology; symplectic embedding problems […]
Organized by Nikita Nekrasov and Samson Shatashvili This workshop is a part of the Fall 2012 program Integrability in Modern Theoretical and Mathematical Physics Exactly solvable quantum many body systems, lattice models of statistical physics and integrable 1+1 dimensional quantum field theories have very rich and long history which substantially influenced the development of […]

Workshop on Symplectic and Contact Topology – Fall 2012 Organized by Mohammed Abouzaid and Yakov Eliashberg This graduate student workshop will be associated with the program in Symplectic Topology at the Center during the Fall of 2012. The workshop will be organized by Yakov Eliashberg and Mohammed Abouzaid (both in residence at the Center for […]
Organized by Ljudmila Kamenova (Stony Brook), Nigel Hitchin (Oxford), Eyal Markman (UMass, Amherst) and Justin Sawon (UNC) A number of new developments make it timely to hold a workshop on hyperkahler geometry, focussing on: 1. The GMN construction of hyperkahler metrics. 2. Verbitsky’s Torelli Theorem (2009) 3. Simultaneous resolutions of symplectic singularities. 4. Derived […]
Simons Center Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the SYNERGY exhibition featuring the works of sculptor William Duffy and the choreographer William Forsythe’s website based project with The Ohio State University. This multi–media exhibit emphasizes the collaboration between artist and research scientist, while also debuting William Duffy’s most recent work for the Simons […]
Organized by Dan Freed, Constantin Teleman and Greg Moore This final workshop of the Algebraic Topology with Applications to Physics program presents recent ideas at the interfaces of topology, higher algebraic structures, representation theory, quantum field theory, and integrable systems.
“In this workshop, we will bring algebraic geometers and string theorists together to discuss these topics and identify new topics of common interest. We particularly hope to attract algebraic geometers who have not actively worked on string-related topics before, and to this end the workshop will include a series of introductory lectures for mathematicians, one […]
