7.Gravity15 — AdS/CFT and quantum gravity |

Dates | 14 Sep 2015 → 18 Sep 2015 | [ID=710769] |

Location | Montreal, Canada |

Abstract | Much of our current understanding of non-perturbative dynamics of quantum field theories, and in particular of AdS/CFT duality, derives from the use of integrability methods. Quantum integrability methods were first used to obtain exact solutions of certain 1+1 dimensional quantum spin chains and Quantum Field Theories. But in the last decade, they were successfully applied to some higher-dimensional conformal supersymmetric gauge theories in the planar limit, such as 4dN=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and 3d ABJM. This allowed the exact computation of some of the most important physical quantities that appear, such as correlators, scattering amplitudes and Wilson loops amplitudes, to all orders in perturbation theory. In addition, classical and quantum integrability methods contributed significantly to progress in related subjects dealing with exact partition functions, localization methods and the so called AGT correspondence in topological and BPS sectors of various 4d N=1, 2 supersymmetric gauge theories. These Interrelated subjects have attracted considerable attention in recent years amongst leading researchers from around the world, ranging from high energy phenomenologists to string theorists and specialists in integrability methods. The resulting discoveries have become part of the mainstream developments linking modern quantum field theory to string theory. This workshop aims at a fruitful exchange of ideas and interactions amongst leading researchers working in various aspects of this field. About 70 scientists will take part in this two week sequence, giving talks on their research (3-4 per day) and participating in interactive discussion sessions. |

9.ICNAAM 2015 — Symposium on Latest Advances in Inverse Problem and its Application to Science and Engineering |

Dates | 23 Sep 2015 → 29 Sep 2015 | [ID=703390] |

Location | Rodos, Greece |

Abstract | The inverse problem seeks for the source given a response. It has always been an important step in numerically addressing many physical problems and in forming optimal solutions towards practical applications. However, it is a notoriously difficult problem to solve as the kernel functional is usually ill-behaviored to be accurately inverted. A better solution towards inverse models will benefit our society by lending new insights and introducing more efficient solutions to realistic world of both scientific and technical interests. This symposium focuses on a specific aspect of the cross-disciplinary inverse problem with an emphasis on the development and application of new methods towards physical science research and engineering. It aims at bringing together scholars across the world who are from different fields yet share the joint interest on tackling the inverse problem. It strives to provide a chance to exchange newest ideas and thoughts among researchers on a broad range of problems. |

11.Applications15 — Applications of AdS/CFT to QCD and condensed matter physics |

Dates | 19 Oct 2015 → 23 Oct 2015 | [ID=710723] |

Location | Montreal, Canada |

Abstract | One of the most important problems in mathematical physics is the study of strongly coupled field theories of the sort we use to describe the strong interactions (QCD) and condensed matter systems (CMT). Theorists have very few tools at their disposal, each of which accompanied by its attendant limitations. Perturbative (i.e., weak coupling) computations can probe a large part of the parameter space of QCD. However, these results are valid only at temperatures well above the deconfinement temperature, and at large values of the baryon number chemical potential $mu$ in order for the QCD coupling to be small, and thus the perturbation theory valid. These exclusions limit the applicability to regions of parameter space explored in heavy ion collisions at RHIC and LHC. The workshop will unify themes related to the connection of AdS/CFT with QCD and condensed matter physics, for example color glass condensate and color superconductivity phase of QCD using appropriate gravity duals and the techniques from integrability. |

13.QSQW2015 — Workshop of Quantum Simulation and Quantum Walks 2015 |

Dates | 16 Nov 2015 → 18 Nov 2015 | [ID=741145] |

Location | Yokohama, Japan |

Abstract | The Nature is always changed dynamically even in quantum mechanics. Quantum walks, which are quantum-mechanical analogues of random walks, are promising toy models to understand quantum dynamics. Surprisingly, these models can be experimentally demonstrated in some physical models. This workshop will be open for interdisciplinary researchers from the theoretical and experimental sides on the discrete-time and continuous-time quantum walks, for examples, mathematics, physics, quantum information, and statistical mechanics. The organizers strongly encourage young researchers to actively join us to this workshop. The series of the workshops on quantum walk was held at Tokyo, Japan (2011, cancelled), Valencia, Spain (2011), Okazaki, Japan (2012), Pisa, Italy (2013), Durban, South Africa (2014). |

14.Moduli16 — Moduli spaces, integrable systems, and topological recursions |

Dates | 09 Jan 2016 → 13 Jan 2016 | [ID=710818] |

Location | Montreal, Canada |

Abstract | The computation and enumeration of invariants of moduli spaces took a sudden turn with the conjecture of Witten that they could be combined into a formal series that solved the KdV hierarchy. This conjecture, subsequently proven by Kontsevich, was motivated by considerations of quantum gravity. It was followed by a series of developments in the same direction, notably in the computation of invariants for Hurwitz spaces and for Gromov-Witten invariants, for example in the work of Okounkov and Pandharipande, tying Gromov-Witten theory to the 2-Toda hierarchy. Kontsevich's proof involved a detour through the theory of random matrices, and subsequently Eynard and Orantin proposed a vast generalization of the technique, with a wide variety of implications. The questions have physical motivations, and has advanced with the rapid mixture of calculation and heuristic reasoning which characterizes theoretical physics; mathematicians have in many but not all cases provided proof, and, it is hoped, some understanding. The theory of integrable systems seems to lie at the heart of the subject, providing a thematic link. It is fair to say, though, that the way in which it happens is still ill-understood. Indeed, so far, it is more the tools, computational devices, and actual functions that appear, rather than flows and conserved quantities. It is hoped that recent physical input, again from the theory of quantum gravity, will help develop understanding. |

17.ICERM Semester Program on Singularities and Waves In Incompressible Fluids |

Dates | 30 Jan 2017 → 05 May 2017 | [ID=734378] |

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. |
