Abstract

The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists working on the mathematical and physical aspects of nonlinear optics. Topics will include nonlinear propagation in inhomogeneous and random media modeled by nonlinear dispersive PDEs with applications to laser filamentation, ultrashort pulses, and quantum effects. It will emphasize an interdisciplinary approach, ranging from rigorous analysis to asymptotics and numerical methods, as well as experimental research. In addition to problems of current interest, one of the goals will be to identify future research directions.

Workshop III: Collective Variables in Quantum Mechanics

ID

831041

Dates

14 Nov 2016 - 18 Nov 2016

Location

Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States

Abstract

Collective quasiparticle states (molecular orbitals, plasmons, phonons, polarons, excitons, etc.) are often employed to study and understand many particle systems in quantum mechanics (especially in extended systems). Can machine learning (ML) techniques generate such quasiparticle states or approximations thereof, given only the atomistic Hamiltonian as an input and macroscopic observables as an output? On a larger scale and going toward materials design (materials genomics): How can one generate the necessary and sufficient data to use ML approaches to infer the important collective variables (materials genes, scaling relations, etc.)? This workshop will gather experts in electronic structure methods together with mathematicians and computer scientists who are interested in or have already been applying ML methods in physics, chemistry, and materials sciences.

Second Summer/Winter School on Dynamical Approaches in Spectral Geometry: "Dynamical Methods in Open Quantum Systems"

ID

831106

Dates

16 Nov 2016 - 19 Nov 2016

Location

University of Göttingen, Germany

Abstract

The winter school aims to provide an introduction to the mathematical theory of open quantum systems. Open quantum systems is a fascinating subject which has undergone a rapid development over the last fifteen years and where the basic mathematical principles only finally has begun to shape. It lies at the junction of many mathematical disciplines such as functional analysis, operator algebras, spectral theory, stochastic processes, and statistical quantum mechanics and for this reason is not easy to master. Moreover, numerous applications in the natural sciences are characteristic of this subject. The program will consist of four main lecture series delivered by leading experts in their respective fields. Additionally, there will be time for discussions and short presentations by the participants. The school mainly addresses doctoral students and young researches, but it is open to anyone who wants to get acquainted with the mathematical foundations of this beautiful theory.

HS_DT — Hydrodynamic Stability and Dynamo Theory

ID

833012

Dates

09 Dec 2016 - 20 Dec 2016

Location

Warangal, India

Abstract

The topics of the course, related to recent astrophysical and geophysical problems, is also very attractive to applied mathematicians. Sophisticated mathematical approaches applying wide spectra of numerical as well as analytic and asymptotic methods are necessary for successful and effective solutions of those physical problems. The first goal of the course is to motivate mathematicians to solve complex physical problems. Therefore, the course indicates an attractiveness and practical usefulness of topics related to the magnetic fields generation of cosmic bodies, in particular of the Earth and Sun. Understanding and the ability to predict the time behaviour of the last two fields has also enormous practical significance, and it is not yet solved. The second goal is to show how various branches of mathematics are indispensable in solving the problems of Convection and Dynamo Theory in astro- and geophysics. The 3rd goal is to introduce the basic physical background for the topics with emphasis on mathematical expression of this physics, i.e. to underline the correspondence between the physics and mathematics of the topics.

Abstract

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together the national community of physicists working on statistical physics and related areas, in order to exchange knowledge, results and discuss new lines of research. We also invite a group of internationally-well known scientists who have made fundamental contributions in their respective fields. This provides the opportunity to exchange ideas between national and foreign colleagues in a pleasant, inclusive and informal environment.

The main program consists of plenary and short-talk lectures given by selected invited speakers who present, in a non-technical way, the "state of the art" in their fields of study, as well as their main contributions. We invite students and postdocs to submit abstracts by january 07th to be considered in the poster session.

BKK2017DSCR — Bangkok Workshop on Discrete Geometry and Statistics

ID

826590

Dates

30 Jan 2017 - 03 Feb 2017

Location

Bangkok, Thailand

Abstract

The workshop will focus on mathematical statistical physics of discrete systems, and in particular its applications to random geometries, as well as a few other related research directions. Real-life motivations for such studies range from attempts to quantize gravity to problems in condensed matter physics to mathematical modelling of cooperative phenomena in macroscopic communities. Some concrete directions include: 1) Discrete random geometries with applications to gravity quantization, 2) Discrete mathematical models in equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics (the Ising model and its relatives, percolation, lattice gases, etc), 3) Random matrix and tensor models, 4) Random graphs and dynamics of complex networks, 5) Topics in lattice gauge theory (especially with emphasis on analytic approaches), 6) Conformal field theories (especially with connections to the above subjects), 7) Miscellaneous discrete aspects of dynamical evolution (cellular automata, time-periodic structures, etc).

ICERM Semester Program on Singularities and Waves In Incompressible Fluids

ID

734334

Dates

30 Jan 2017 - 05 May 2017

Location

Providence, United States

Abstract

Incompressible fluids are an abundant source of mathematical and practical problems. The question of global-in-time regularity versus finite-time singularity formation for incompressible fluids, governed by the Navier-Stokes or Euler equations, has been one of the most challenging outstanding problems in applied PDE. There have also been new developments in the study of the onset of turbulence due to linear and nonlinear instabilities in incompressible fluids. Interfacial and surface water waves are physical phenomena that, in addition to the challenges outlined above, involve the evolution of free boundaries. These problems embody many of the mathematical challenges found in studies of nonlinear PDEs.

Progress on these topics is possible because of advances in analysis, numerical computations and physical experiments. In addition, ocean field observations provide a reality test to all conclusions and invite new problems to be addressed. In this program, we provide a venue for interaction among researchers engaged in all of these problem-solving techniques to focus on topics arising in incompressible fluids.

Topics of particular interest include: singularity formation, stability and bifurcation; the modeling and analysis of simplified phenomenological models for the description of coherent structures; and time-dependent and steady free boundary problems including water waves, vortex sheets, capillary problems with contact lines and viscous waves with boundary layers.

ID

820067

Dates

07 Aug 2017 - 11 Aug 2017

Location

Ghent, Belgium

Abstract

The ICCA series is traditionally dedicated to the study of Clifford algebra and its applications in geometry, mathematical analysis, mathematical and theoretical physics and mechanical and electrical engineering. Over the years, it has further broadened and diversified its scope to include a.o. numerical analysis, integral transforms, signal processing, group representation theory, Lie (super)algebras, … . Moreover Clifford algebra has shown to be a highly efficient and powerful language for tackling problems in control engineering, signal processing, robotics, geographic information systems (GIS), cosmology, virtual reality, 3D camera optics, medical imaging, and neural computation. The ICCA conferences have a strong interdisciplinary character. They aim at bringing together experts and young researchers from various fields encouraging interdisciplinary interactions.
