Conformal Invariance in Continuous and Discrete Systems: April 8 – 12, 2013

Organized by John Cardy, Greg Lawler and Paul Wiegmann   The workshop will focus on the mathematical and physical understanding of the interrelations between Conformal Field Theory and Schramm Loewner Evolution, as well as their relation to discrete lattice systems such as percolation, Ising models, Potts models, loop models, and dimers. The other topics covered […]

Graduate Workshop on Kahler Geometry, June 24 – July 5, 2013

  Workshop in Kahler Geometry-Summer 2013 Recently there have been spectacular developments in Kahler geometry which cut across a wide variety of mathematical fields ranging from the analysis of PDE’s to Algebraic Geometry. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce graduate students and young researchers to some of these developments. The workshop will be […]

Random Tilings Workshop: February 18 – 22, 2013

  Organized by Rick Kenyon, Jan de Gier, and Bernard Nienhuis   Random tilings in two dimensions provide an interesting class of discrete geometric models that exhibit critical behavior and hence are expected to be described by conformal eld theories and SLEs. The random tiling of lozenges, being free fermionic and describable in terms of […]

Facets of Integrability: January 21 – 27, 2013

Facets of Integrability: Random Patterns, Stochastic Processes, Hydrodynamics, Gauge Theories and Condensed Matter Systems Organized by: Ilia Binder, Andrei Okounkov, Alexander Abanov, Eldad Bettelheim, Ilya Gruzberg, Seung-Yeop Lee and Razvan Teodorescu Once mathematicians got interested in random matrix theory two decades ago, it was recognized that methods previously used in integrable non-linear equations, could also […]

Symplectic and Low Dimensional Topologies in Interaction December 3 – 7, 2012

Organized by Peter Ozsvath, Yakov Eliashberg, Robert Lipshitz and Mohammed Abouzaid The workshop will explore recent developments in symplectic topology and low-dimensional topology, with an emphasis on connections between the two. Topics will include Heegaard Floer homology and its relation to combinatorial and geometric 3-manifold topology; contact geometry and its interaction with low-dimensional topology; symplectic embedding problems […]
