Neural networks and the Data Science Revolution: from theoretical physics to neuroscience, and back: January 6-31, 2020

Organized by: Michael R. Douglas, Sergei Gukov, Jim Halverson, Sven Krippendorf, Fabian Ruehle, Giancarlo La Camera, Luca Mazzucato, Jin Wang The availability of very large datasets and the striking progress in artificial intelligence are revolutionizing the way scientists approach their disciplines. The deployment of state-of-the-art techniques in machine learning and statistical inference to study large […]

Renormalization and universality in Conformal Geometry, Dynamics, Random Processes, and Field Theory: February 3 – June 5, 2020

Organizers: Kostya Khanin and Misha Lyubich The goal of the program is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on various aspects of renormalization in dynamical systems. The idea of Renormalization group emerged in Quantum Field Theory. Later, in the 1960s, it became a major tool in Statistical Mechanics in analysis of phase transitions and […]

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 […]

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 […]
