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 16 – 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 […]

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 […]

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: TBD

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 […]
