Summer Seminar Series: Applications of gauge topology, holography and string models to QCD

Organizers: Massimo D’Elia, Jeff Greensite, Elias Kiritsis, Zohar Komargodski, Edward Shuryak, Jacob Sonnenschein, Ismail Zahed A workshop on these topics was supposed to start in June 2020 at the Simons Center of Stony Brook University, but this in-person meeting is now delayed to June 7, 2021. This will mean a roughly two year gap since […]

Continued: Lighting new Lampposts for Dark Matter and Beyond the Standard Model: January 19 – February 5, 2021

This is a continuation of last years program: Lighting new Lampposts for Dark Matter and Beyond the Standard Model. Organized by: Ranny Budnik, Rouven Essig, and Maxim Pospelov. Continuing progress in collider physics and dark matter searches in the past few decades have put significant pressure on several favorable theoretical models for Dark Matter and […]

Continued: Renormalization and Universality in Conformal Geometry, Dynamics, Random Processes, and Field Theory: February 22 – March 19, 2021

Organizers: Dzmitry Dudko, Kostya Khanin and Misha Lyubich The goal of the program is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on various aspects of renormalization in dynamical systems. The idea of Renormalization group emerged in Quantum Field Theory. Later, in the 1960s, it became a major tool in Statistical Mechanics in analysis of phase […]

The Stokes Phenomenon and its applications in Mathematics and Physics: April 26-June 25, 2021

Organized by: Anton Alekseev, Marco Gualtieri, and Xiaomeng Xu When a system of differential equations has an irregular singularity, such as a pole of order two or higher, a solution may fail to have a well-defined asymptotic expansion at the singular locus. Instead, there is a collection of angular sectors surrounding the singular locus, in […]

Quantum-Mechanical Systems at Large Quantum Number: August 26 – September 20, 2019

Organized by: Luis Alvarez-Gaume, Simeon Hellerman, Domenico Orlando, and Susanne Reffert QFT is the basic paradigm for the description of condensed matter physics and high-energy particle physics. Despite decades of research, strongly coupled regimes of QFT are largely inaccessible to analytic methods, even though important progress has come from the conformal bootstrap and non-Lagrangian methods. […]

Geometrical aspects of topological phases of matter: spatial symmetries, fractons and beyond: April 12 – June 4, 2021

Organized by: Jennifer Cano, Dominic Else, Andrey Gromov, Siddharth Parameswaran, and Yizhi You Topological phases of matter are a long-standing subject of interest in the condensed matter community, and increasingly relevant to issues in high-energy physics. A topological phase is traditionally defined to be one which is “non-trivial” (cannot be deformed to a trivial insulator […]
