Fluctuations, Entanglements, and Chaos: Exact Results: August 28, 2023-October 8, 2023

Orgaized by: D. Bernard, B. Bertini, F. H. L. Essler, V. Khemani and T. Prosen Experimental advances in ultra-cold atomic physics and building quantum simulators have opened up new research areas in quantum many-body physics focused on inherently dynamical properties. Examples of fundamental questions that have been investigated in the last few years included characterizing […]

SuperGeometry and SuperModuli: March 27-May 19, 2023

Organizing by: Sergio Cacciatori (Università degli studi dell’Insubria), Samuel Grushevsky (SCGP), Alexander Polishchuk (University of Oregon) A supermanifold is the generalization of a usual manifold when some of the coordinates are even variables, and some are odd. The mathematical foundations of supergeometry were established in the 1970s and 1980s. While much of the motivation for […]

Lighting new Lampposts for Dark Matter and Beyond the Standard Model: February 27-March 24, 2023

Organized by: Ranny Budnik, Rouven Essig, Maxim Pospelov, Kim Berghaus and Mauro Valli. 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 other beyond the Standard Model physics. However, the mystery of dark matter, and its true […]

Hyperkahler quotients, singularities, and quivers: January 3 – February 24, 2023

Organized by: Ljudmila Kamenova (Stony Brook University), Giovanni Mongardi (University of Bologna), Alexei Oblomkov (UMass Amherst) Hyperkahler manifolds are higher-dimensional generalizations of K3 surfaces, and as such they are a perfect testing ground for central conjectures in algebraic geometry, like the Hodge conjecture, the Tate conjecture, Grothendieck’s standard conjectures, Bloch-Beilinson conjectures, etc. Exciting new insight […]

Summer Seminar Series: Applications of gauge topology, holography and string models to QCD: June 7- August 2021

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 and then again in June 2021 at the Simons Center of Stony Brook University, but this in-person meeting is now canceled. This will mean a roughly three-year gap […]

Confronting Large N, Holography, Integrability and Stringy Models with the Real World: February 14 – April 22, 2022

Organized by: Sergei Dubovsky (NYU), Zohar Komargodski (SCGP), Erich Poppitz (University of Toronto), Jacob Sonnenshein (Tel Aviv), Mithat Unsal (North Carolina State University) Since the introduction of QCD as the theory of gluons and quarks quite a lot of methods and toy models have been invoked to seek control on the theory. In particular: considering […]

Geometrical Aspects of Topological Phases of Matter: Spatial Symmetries, Fractons and Beyond: April 4 – May 27, 2022

Organized by: Jennifer Cano (Stony Brook University), Dominic Else (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Andrey Gromov (Brown), Siddharth Parameswaran (University of Oxford), Yizhi You (Princeton University) 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 […]
