Tau Functions, Correlation Functions and Applications: August 29 – 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 […]


Zoom Fall Seminar Series: Supersymmetric Black Holes, Holography and Microstate Counting

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 seminar series will serve as a first part of the of the activity.  The seminars will be run online via ZOOM, from September 28, 2020 – November […]

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 […]
