Floer homology in low-dimensional topology: April 27-May 1, 2020

Organized by: Matthew Hedden, Tom Mrowka, Olga Plamenevskaya, Jacob Rasmussen April 27-May 1, 2020  This workshop will explore topics of current interest in the theory of Floer homology for 3-manifolds. Floer homology is a powerful tool for studying the topology of 3- and 4-dimensional manifolds, and the relations between them. The first such invariants were […]

New directions in topological phases: from fractons to spatial symmetries: April 13-17, 2020

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 a gapped phase which is “non-trivial” (cannot be deformed to a […]

Applications of Random Matrix Theory to many-body physics: September 16 – 20, 2019.

Organized by Boris Altshuler, Anatoly Dymarsky, Lea Santos, Jacobus Verbaarschot. One of the most fundamental questions of quantum dynamics is how a many-body quantum system approaches equilibrium. At the classical level, equilibration of many-body systems is well understood, with all relevant timescales being mapped out microscopically. Similarly the relation between equilibration of classical many-body systems […]

Graduate school on Geometry of Teichmuller spaces April 15-19, 2019

Organized by: Samuel Grushevsky, Babak Modami, and Leon Takhtajan Teichmuller theory and moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces have a special role in modern mathematics: they have been a fruitful playground for ideas and methods from complex and algebraic geometry, topology, analysis, and more recently dynamical systems. The main goal of this graduate school is to […]

TTbar and Other Solvable Deformations of Quantum Field Theories: April 8 – 12, 2019

  Organized by: Mark Mezei, Stefano Negro, Alexander Zamolodchikov, and Zohar Komargodski The workshop will be devoted to the recent exciting developments in the investigation of irrelevant deformations in QFT. Solvable examples such as $T\bar{T}$-deformed two-dimensional QFTs and their generalizations have attracted attention across the whole spectrum of high energy theory. The purpose of the […]
