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 […]

Summer Seminar Series: Applications of gauge topology, holography and string models to QCD

Organizers: Massimo D’Elia, Jeff Greensite, Elias Kiritsis, Zohar Komargodski, Edward Shuryak, Jacob Sonnenschein, Ismail Zahed A workshop on these topics was supposed to start in June 2020 at the Simons Center of Stony Brook University, but this in-person meeting is now delayed to June 7, 2021. This will mean a roughly two year gap since […]

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 […]
