Organized by: Kenji Fukaya (SCGP), Yanki Lekili (Imperial College, London), Chris Woodward (Rutgers University) The theme of the workshop is structural properties of Lagrangian Floer theory and its applications. Topics will include the behavior of Floer cohomology under various kinds of surgery; formulas for the behavior of disk potentials under Lagrangian surgery or mutation; potentials … Read more

Recent Advances on Scalar Curvature Problems: June 27 – July 1, 2022

Organized by: Alessandro Carlotto (ETH Zurich), Marcus Khuri (Stony Brook University), Philippe G. LeFloch (Sorbonne Univ.), Rafe Mazzeo (Stanford University) Problems involving the scalar curvature of a Riemannian manifold (prescribed curvature, existence, uniqueness, comparison, convergence, rigidity, regularity, etc.) arise in many areas of mathematics and physics. Over the past decade, there has been spectacular progress … Read more

Geometry of (S)QFT: September 20-24, 2021 (Remote event)

Organized by: Ibou Bah (Johns Hopkins University), Shlomo Razamat (Technion) Quantum field theory (QFT) is a universal language used to describe a wide variety of phenomena in Nature, including elementary particles, condensed matter systems, and cosmology. Despite its remarkable successes, novel toolkits are needed for exploring the landscape of QFTs and for computing and characterizing … Read more

Tau Functions, Correlation Functions and Applications: August 30 – September 3, 2021 (Remote Event)

Organized by: Marco Bertola (Concordia University and SISSA), John Harnad (Centre de recherches mathematiques), Jacques Hurtubise (McGill University), Alexander Its (IUPUI) Dmitry Korotkin (Concordia University)  Tau functions are key ingredients in the modern theory of integrable systems. In the classical  dynamical systems setting, they appear as generating functions for solutions of integrable hierarchies, such as … Read more

Ergodic Operators and Quantum Graphs: June 6-10, 2022

Organized by: David Damanik (Rice University), Jake Fillman (Texas State University), Selim Sukhtaiev (Auburn University) Ergodic Schrödinger operators have been studied heavily since the 1970s, as they include many examples of physical interest, such as disordered media, electrons in an external magnetic field, and quasicrystals. These operators enjoy many subtle connections to other areas of … 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

Postponed: Lighting new Lampposts for Dark Matter and Beyond the Standard Model: January 24 – February 11, 2022

This is a continuation of last years program: Lighting new Lampposts for Dark Matter and Beyond the Standard Model. Organized by: Ranny Budnik (Weizmann Institute of Science), Rouven Essig (Stony Brook), Maxim Pospelov (University of Minnesota) Continuing progress in collider physics and dark matter searches in the past few decades have put significant pressure on … Read more

Flowing into the future: Particle Jets in Quantum Field Theory and Phenomenology: March 21-25, 2022

Organized by: Christine Aidala (University of Michigan), Yang-Ting Chien (Georgia State University), Abhay Deshpande (Department of Physics and Astronomy, SBU), George Sterman (CN Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics) At high energies in quantum chromodynamics, particle jets provide an experimentally accessible manifestation of a change in degrees of freedom with time. The relationship between asymptotically short … Read more
