Tensor-Network Methods: Structure, Applications and Holography: December 11 – 15, 2017

Organized by: Glen Evenbly (University of Sherbrooke), Roman Orus (Univ. of Mainz), David Perez-Garcia (Univ. Complutense de Marid), Tzu-Chieh Wei (Stony Brook University) Over the past few decades we have witnessed a rapid exchange and infuse of ideas across different fields: from entanglement in quantum information to quantum phase transitions and topological order in many-body … Read more

Exotic Hadrons and Flavor Physics: May 28 – June 1, 2018

Organizers: Exotic Hadrons: Marek Karliner, Jon Rosner and Tomasz Skwarnicki Flavor Physics: Amarjit Soni and George Sterman During the last few years there has been a large number of new experimental discoveries of “exotic” hadrons which do not fit the standard quark model. The mesons among them cannot be constructed out of a quark-antiquark pair … Read more

Progress in quantum collective phenomena – from MBL to black holes: November 13 – 17, 2017

Organized by: Alexander Abanov, Sriram Ganeshan, Kristan Jensen, and Vadim Oganesyan Recent years have witnessed significant progress in understanding the behavior of quantum many-body systems without relying on the age-old assumptions of thermalization or equilibration. Qualitatively new and different real-time dynamics have been found in fields ranging from condensed matter systems to strongly interacting theories … Read more

Geometrical and statistical fluid dynamics: October 11 – 17, 2017

Organized by: Uriel Frisch, Konstantin Khanin and Rahul Pandit Some of the most basic questions relating to the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations for the motion of a 3D incompressible fluid are still open. There is a strong belief that answers to these questions cannot be obtained without creative use of geometric/Lagrangian and measure-theoretic/probabilistic tools. This … Read more

Wonders of Broken Integrability: October 2 – 6, 2017

Workshop: Wonders of Broken Integrability October 2-6, 2017 Organized by: Fabian Essler, Giuseppe Mussardo and Alexei Tsvelik Quantum Integrability is one of the most significant concepts of modern science, characterized by a wide spectrum of applications and fascinating mathematical properties. Striking advances in the fields of ultra-cold atomic gases, non-equilibrium and thermalization properties of many-particle … Read more
