Organized by: Nikita Nekrasov, Alexander Turbiner and Alexander Abanov. Timing: Spring 2015/Fall 2015 Abstract: Calogero-Moser-Sutherland many-body systems arose originally in the 1970’s simultaneously in Nuclear Physics, Mathematical Physics and Solid State Physics. Since then they were found in some incarnations in diverse branches of physics and mathematics such as the theory of quantum Hall effect, […]

## Geometry of Quantum Hall States: April 18, 2016 – June 17, 2016

Geometry of Quantum Hall States Organized by Sasha Abanov, Tankut Can, Anton Kapustin, and Paul Wiegmann April 18, 2016 – June 17, 2016 The quantum Hall effect (QHE) is a fascinating and important phenomenon. Since its experimental discovery in the early 80’s the QHE continues to fuel work in experimental physics, metrology, fundamental theoretical physics […]

## Complex, p-adic, and logarithmic Hodge theory and their applications: March 6, 2016 – April 29, 2016

Complex, p-adic, and logarithmic Hodge theory and their applications Organized by Mark de Cataldo, Radu Laza, Christian Schnell March 7, 2016 – April 29, 2016 Hodge theory is a very powerful tool for understanding the geometry of complex algebraic varieties and it has a wide range of applications in complex and algebraic geometry, mirror symmetry, […]

## Statistical mechanics and combinatorics: February 15 – April 15, 2016

Statistical mechanics and combinatorics Organized by Pavel Bleher, Vladimir Korepin, and Bernard Nienhuis February 15 – April 15, 2016 The purpose of the program is to relate physics and mathematics, and more specifically, statistical mechanics, algebraic combinatorics, and random matrices. The program will focus on the six-vertex model of statistical mechanics and related models, such […]

## Geometric representation theory: January 4-29th, 2016

Geometric representation theory Organized by: David Ben-Zvi, Roman Bezrukavnikov and Alexander Braverman January 4-29th, 2016 The program will focus on emerging trends in representation theory and their relation to the more traditional ideas of the subject. The celebrated success of the perverse sheaves methods in 1980’s has led to development of a direction which may […]
