Applications of Random Matrix Theory to many-body physics: September 16 – 20, 2019.

Organized by Boris Altshuler, Anatoly Dymarsky, Lea Santos, Jacobus Verbaarschot. One of the most fundamental questions of quantum dynamics is how a many-body quantum system approaches equilibrium. At the classical level, equilibration of many-body systems is well understood, with all relevant timescales being mapped out microscopically. Similarly the relation between equilibration of classical many-body systems … Read more

Quantum-Mechanical Systems at Large Quantum Number: August 26 – September 20, 2019

Organized by: Luis Alvarez-Gaume, Simeon Hellerman, Domenico Orlando, and Susanne Reffert QFT is the basic paradigm for the description of condensed matter physics and high-energy particle physics. Despite decades of research, strongly coupled regimes of QFT are largely inaccessible to analytic methods, even though important progress has come from the conformal bootstrap and non-Lagrangian methods. … Read more
