Geometrical Aspects of Hydrodynamics: May 19 – 23, 2014

Application for workshop is now closed. Organized by Krzysztof Gawedzki, Boris Khesin, and Paul Wiegmann Dates: May 19 – 23, 2014 Geometric and group-theoretic methods lie at the foundation of modern studies in hydrodynamics.  Recent applications of fluid dynamics require understanding of fundamental  symmetries of fluids and infinite-dimensional groups featured by hydrodynamical equations. The geometric and topological hydrodynamics is a […]

Moduli Spaces of Pseudo-holomorphic curves and their applications to Symplectic Topology

Organized by Kenji Fukaya, Dusa McDuff, and John Morgan January 2 – June 30, 2014 Gromov-Witten theory, Lagrangian-Floer homology and symplectic field theory arise from the notion of pseudo-holomorphic curves, possibly with boundary conditions, in symplectic manifolds. All these theories rely in a fundamental way on Gromov’s compactness result for moduli spaces of pseudo-holomorphic curves, […]

Quantum Anomalies, Topology, and Hydrodynamics

Quantum Anomalies, Topology, and Hydrodynamics Organized by Alexander Abanov, Dmitri Kharzeev, Boris Khesin, Dam Son, and Paul Wiegmann February 17-June 13, 2014 Recent developments in relativistic hydrodynamics place it at the crossroads of nuclear physics, condensed matter physics and string theory. Hydrodynamics is known to be very effective in describing the long-wavelength behavior of many […]

Quantum Anomalies and Hydrodynamics: Applications to Nuclear and Condensed Matter Physics: February 17 – 21, 2014

Organized by Chris Herzog, Kristan Jensen, Dmitri Kharzeev, Shinsei Ryu, and Dam Son. Dates: February 17 – 21, 2014 The past decade has seen an unexpected revolution in both our understanding of and interest in relativistic hydrodynamics (RH). This revival was originally motivated by applications to the phenomenology of relativistic heavy-ion collisions as well as […]
