Quintessentially Science Fiction. An Interview with Eugenio Calabi, Hosted by Claude LeBrun, on Behalf of the Simons Center.

Click HERE to watch the video In July 2019, on behalf of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, Claude LeBrun, Stony Brook Mathematics Department, conducted an interview with Eugenio Calabi at the University of Pennsylvania Mathematics Department. Calabi is of course primarily famous for his pioneering work on Calabi-Yau manifolds, a class of solutions […]

Small scale dynamics in fluid motion: June 20-24, 2022

Organized by: Theodore D. Drivas, Tarek M. Elgindi, 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. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together people working on […]

Geometrical aspects of topological phases of matter: spatial symmetries, fractons and beyond: April 4 – May 27, 2022

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

Probability, integrability, and conformal invariance: August 16 – September 10, 2021

Organized by: Eldad Bettelheim, Ilya Gruzberg, Håkan Hedenmalm, Alisa Knizel, and Paul Wiegmann. In recent years, the convergence of several topics in mathematics and physics have led to exciting developments in the study of fundamental problems in field theory, statistical mechanics, and probability theory. A deeper understanding has been gained of hidden symmetries associated with […]

Geometric and Representation-Theoretic Aspects of Quantum Integrability: August 29-October 21, 2022

Organized by: Peter Koroteev, Elli Pomoni, Benoit Vicedo, Dmytro Volin, Anton Zeitlin Quantum integrable systems (QIS) keep reemerging in various areas of modern mathematics and theoretical physics. They were an inspiration for the creation of the theory of quantum groups and play an important role in the understanding of enumerative geometry, representation theory, and quantum […]

Remembering Isadore Singer

It is with great sadness that we reflect on the loss of Professor Isadore Singer: Is Singer was a friend and colleague of many at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics. He played an important role in the creation of the Simons Center and was the founding co-chairman of its Board of Trustees.  His achievements […]
