Analysis, Dynamics, Geometry and Probability: March 2-6, 2020

Organized by: Raanan Schul, Hrant Hakobyan, Kirill Lazebnik Scientific committee: Peter Jones, Misha Lyubich, Dennis Sullivan The workshop will bring together experts in Analysis, Dynamics, Geometry and Probability. These fields have had fruitful interaction in the past and present. One example is the connection between Brownian motion, harmonic measure, analysis of singular integrals, and geometric […]

Novel Vistas on Vortices: November 11-15, 2019

Organized by: Mathew Bullimore (Durham, UK), Nuno M. Romão (Augsburg, Germany), Sushmita Venugopalan (IMSc Chennai, India) Moduli spaces of symplectic vortices, well known to particle and condensed-matter physicists since the 1970s, have experienced a substantial revival over the last twenty years. This has been motivated, on one hand, by the extension of the vortex equations […]

Recent developments in Lagrangian Floer theory: March 16-20, 2020

Organized by: Kenji Fukaya, SCGP, Yanki Lekili, King’s College London, Chris Woodward, Rutgers University. The theme of the workshop is structural properties of Lagrangian Floer theory and its applications. Topics will include the behavior of Floer cohomology under various kinds of surgery; formulas for the behavior of disk potentials under Lagrangian surgery or mutation; potentials […]

Strings, Geometry, and Data Science: January 6-8, 2020

Organized by: Michael R. Douglas, Sergei Gukov, James Halverson, Sven Krippendorf, and Fabian Ruehle Recent years have seen great progress in data science (DS), specifically within the context of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence, which is beginning to lead to breakthroughs in mathematics and theoretical physics. In light of this growing subfield, this conference […]

Applications of gauge topology, holography and string models to QCD June 8-12, 2020

Organized by: Massimo D’Elia, Jeff Greensite, Elias Kiritsis, Zohar Komargodski, Edward Shuryak, Jacob Sonnenschein, Ismail Zahed. Understanding gauge field dynamics at the non-perturbative level, in Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) has been a persistent challenge. Lattice gauge theories solve these issues from first principles, on supercomputers. Semiclassical methods rely on dynamics of gluonic solitons – instantons, monopoles, instanton-dyons […]

C*-algebras, K-theories and Noncommutative Geometries of Correlated Condensed Matter Systems: May 18-22, 2020

Organized by: Emil Prodan, Anton Kapustin and Nigel Higson The uncorrelated topological phases of matter are relatively well understood by now, even in the regime of strong disorder. Since C*-algebras, K-theory and noncommutative geometry (NCG) have been critical to that understanding, they might also expected to supply a mathematical framework for the study of phases […]

Physics of neural circuits and network dynamics: January 27-31, 2020

Organized by: Giancarlo La Camera, Luca Mazzucato, Jin Wang and Michael R. Douglas This workshop brings together leading researchers to discuss current progress on uncovering emergent phenomena and design principles of brain function. The workshop is organized to encourage discussion across different research communities including physics, mathematics, machine learning, and neuroscience with a special emphasis […]

Floer homology in low-dimensional topology: April 6-10, 2020

Organized by: Matthew Hedden, Tom Mrowka, Olga Plamenevskaya, Jacob Rasmussen April 6-10, 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 introduced […]

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 […]
