Anomalies: March 8-10, 2023

Organizing by:1. Sally Dawson (BNL)2. Bhupal Dev (WUSTL)3. Aida El-Khadra (UIUC)4. Stefania Gori (UCSC)5. Amarjit Soni (BNL)6. George Sterman (YITP/Stony Brook)For the past several years three key anomalies indicating lepton flavor universality violation (LFUV) have been getting a lot of attention as they each have a significance of more than 3 standard deviations. In the […]

Birational Complexity of Algebraic Varieties: December 12-16, 2022

Organized by: Ignacio Barros (Université Paris-Saclay)Robert Lazarsfeld (Stony Brook University)Olivier Martin (Stony Brook University) David Stapleton (University of Michigan) Susanna Zimmermann (Université d’Angers) How complicated can an algebraic variety be? From the perspective of birational geometry the simplest varieties are rational or unirational. Determining whether or not a variety is rational is a famously hard problem of […]

Computational Differential Geometry and it’s Applications in Physics: November 14- 18, 2022

Organized by: Rodrigo Barbosa (SCGP)Simon Donaldson (SCGP)Michael R. Douglas (CMSA and SCGP)Burt Ovrut (U Penn) The workshop “Computational Differential Geometry and its Applications in Physics” grows out of recent work using machine learning techniques to solve geometric PDEs such as those determining Ricci-flat Kähler metrics in four and higher dimensions. The mathematical focus will be on computational […]
