Recent Advances on Scalar Curvature Problems: June 27 – July 1, 2022

Organized by Alessandro Carlotto (Zurich), Marcus Khuri (Stony Brook), Philippe G. LeFloch (Paris), and Rafe Mazzeo (Stanford) Problems involving the scalar curvature of a Riemannian manifold (prescribed curvature, existence, uniqueness, comparison, convergence, rigidity, regularity, etc.) arise in many areas of mathematics and physics. Over the past decade, there has been spectacular progress on such problems in […]

5d N=1 SCFTs and Gauge Theories on Brane Webs: September 27 – October 1, 2021

Organized by Amihay Hanany, Marcus Sperling, Antoine Bourget and Julius Grimminger Five dimensional (5d) Lagrangian gauge theories are non-renormalizable, however many 5d N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories can be understood as effective infrared (IR) descriptions of 5d or 6d conformal fixed points in the ultraviolet (UV) under the renormalization group (RG) flow. Consequently, several questions need to […]

Geometry of (S)QFT: September 20-24, 2021

Organized by: Ibou Bah and Shlomo Razamat Quantum field theory (QFT) is a universal language used to describe a wide variety of phenomena in Nature, including elementary particles, condensed matter systems, and cosmology. Despite its remarkable successes, novel toolkits are needed for exploring the landscape of QFTs and for computing and characterizing generic observables, particularly […]

Tau Functions, Correlation Functions and Applications: August 30 – September 3, 2021

Organized by: Marco Bertola, John Harnad, Jacques Hurtubise, Alexander Its and Dmitry Korotkin    Tau functions are key ingredients in the modern theory of integrable systems. In the classical  dynamical systems setting, they appear as generating functions for solutions of integrable hierarchies, such as the KP or Toda hierarchy, which are realized as isospectral deformation families […]

Ergodic Operators and Quantum Graphs: June 6-10, 2022

Organized by: David Damanik, Rice University, Jake Fillman, Texas State University, Selim Sukhtaiev, Auburn University. Ergodic Schrödinger operators have been studied heavily since the 1970s, as they include many examples of physical interest, such as disordered media, electrons in an external magnetic field, and quasicrystals. These operators enjoy many subtle connections to other areas of […]

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 […]

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 […]

Flowing into the future. Particle Jets in Quantum Field Theory and Phenomenology: October 25-29, 2021

Organized by: Christine Aidala, Yang-Ting Chien, Abhay Deshpande, and George Sterman. At high energies in quantum chromodynamics, particle jets provide an experimentally accessible manifestation of a change in degrees of freedom with time. The relationship between asymptotically short and long times in scattering systems is a recurring theme in quantum field theory. With a new […]

Supersymmetric Black Holes, Holography and Microstate Counting: October 11-15, 2021 (postponed from October 2020)

Organized by: Cyril Closset (Oxford U.), Leopoldo Pando Zayas (Michigan U.), Luigi Tizzano (SCGP, Stony Brook), Chiara Toldo (Ecole Polytechnique and CEA Saclay), Alberto Zaffaroni (Milano Bicocca U.) This workshop will be preceded by an online seminar series via ZOOM which will be held in Fall 2020, from September 28 – November 20, 2020.   […]
