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 … Read more

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 … Read more

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 … Read more

Singularity and Prediction in Fluids: May 31-July 1, 2022

Organized by: Theodore D. Drivas (Stony Brook University), Dennis Sullivan (Stony Brook University) 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 … Read more
