Quantum Hall Effect: Status Report: May 11 – 15, 2020

Organized by: A. Gromov, G. Csáthy, F.D.M. Haldane, S. Simon, D. Son. Two-dimensional electron system (2DES) in a strong magnetic field exhibits extraordinary rich variety of phenomena that arise from the strong interactions between the electrons. Among these phenomena, the most notorious one is the fractional quantum Hall (FQH) effect, which is the major playground […]

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 […]
