Summer Seminar Series: Applications of gauge topology, holography and string models to QCD: June 7- August 2021

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 and then again in June 2021 at the Simons Center of Stony Brook University, but this in-person meeting is now canceled. This will mean a roughly three-year gap […]

Confronting large N, holography, integrability and stringy models with the real world: February 14 – April 22, 2022

Organized by: Sergei Dubovsky, Zohar Komargodski, Erich Poppitz, Jacob Sonnenshein, and Mithat Unsa. Since the introduction of QCD as the theory of gluons and quarks quite a lot of methods and toy models have been invoked to seek control on the theory. In particular: considering the theory in different space-time dimensions, analyzing lattice gauge theories, […]

Geometrical aspects of topological phases of matter: spatial symmetries, fractons and beyond: April 4 – May 27, 2022

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 […]

Probability, integrability, and conformal invariance: August 23 – September 10, 2021

Organized by: Eldad Bettelheim, Ilya Gruzberg, Håkan Hedenmalm, Alisa Knizel, and Paul Wiegmann. In recent years, the convergence of several topics in mathematics and physics have led to exciting developments in the study of fundamental problems in field theory, statistical mechanics, and probability theory. A deeper understanding has been gained of hidden symmetries associated with […]

Geometric and Representation-Theoretic Aspects of Quantum Integrability: August 29-October 21, 2022

Organized by: Peter Koroteev, Elli Pomoni, Benoit Vicedo, Dmytro Volin, Anton Zeitlin Quantum integrable systems (QIS) keep reemerging in various areas of modern mathematics and theoretical physics. They were an inspiration for the creation of the theory of quantum groups and play an important role in the understanding of enumerative geometry, representation theory, and quantum […]

Integrability, Enumerative Geometry and Quantization: August 22nd – September 23rd, 2022

Organized by Gaëtan Borot (Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany), Alexandr Buryak (Higher School of Economics, Russia), Chiu-Chu Melissa Liu (Columbia University), Nikita Nekrasov (SCGP), Paul Norbury (University of Melbourne, Australia), Paolo Rossi (University of Padua, Italy) The role played by integrable systems in enumerative geometry has been first observed by physicists at the beginning of the nineties: […]

Singularity and Prediction in Fluids: May 31-July 1, 2022

Organized by: Theodore D. Drivas and Dennis Sullivan Turbulent flows are ubiquitous in the world around us; from trailing airplane wakes to swirling cream in our morning coffee. Despite its prevalence, basic mathematical questions about this complex non-linear phenomenon persist. This is, in part, because fluid motion involves many spatiotemporal scales that interact dynamically and […]
