[ID=661690] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 Abstract Quantum entanglement offers a very general tool for the study of correlations, a fact that has become apparent in the convergence of concepts across many disparate fields through the lens of entanglement. Powerful theorems from quantum information have provided new insight into the fundamental structure of field theories. ;Breakthroughs in holography have postulated geometric forms for entanglement entropies and suggest that, in quantum gravity, entanglement may play a key role in the emergence of spacetime itself. ;These geometric forms seem to be obeyed in a wide variety of contexts, including condensed matter systems, where the utility of entanglement is extending beyond gapped topolgical phases to reveal rich phenomena in gapless and critical systems. ;Fundamental progress has been made in the numerical simulation of interacting quantum models through the understanding of entanglement in strongly-interacting wavefunctions. ;Recent proposals for concrete experimental measures of entanglement promise that it will not be restricted to the theoretical domain for much longer. ;Since many of these breakthroughs have occurred across seemingly different fields of physics, this conference offers the opportunity to bridge the gap between experts from different backgrounds, to share their perspectives on how entanglement can elucidate and unify fundamental problems in quantum information, field theory, holography, cold atoms, and condensed matter systems.

11.Quantum15 — Beyond integrability: The mathematics and physics of integrability and its breaking in low-dimensional strongly correlated quantum phenomena
 Dates 13 Jul 2015 → 17 Jul 2015
[ID=710721] Go to top of page
 LocationMontreal, Canada
 Abstract Strongly correlated quantum phenomena in low dimensions are particularly challenging to understand. In one and two dimensions strong quantum fluctuations lead the fundamental constituents of matter to organize in novel, often unpredictable ways. Phenomena such as non-abelian statistics, spin-charge separation, quantum number fractionalization, and topological states of matter can arise. These new forms of matter cannot be studied with the perturbative approaches commonly used to understand the physics of weakly interacting systems. Integrability provides a unique tool able to access the non-perturbative physics present in strongly correlated systems. An integrable system possesses non-trivial conservation laws beyond the standard ones of energy and momentum. Integrability is surprisingly ubiquitous in one-dimensional systems, ranging from quantum wires, to spin chains, to cold atomic gases. The additional conservation laws constrain the physics of the system making it possible to access, in certain circumstances, non-perturbative information.

[ID=661208] Go to top of page
 LocationTelluride, CO, United States
 Abstract Since its beginnings one of the main purposes of thermodynamics has been the optimization of devices. Commonly, processes are characterized as optimal if they are maximally fast or maximally efficient. Recent years have seen the development of various theoretical tools which tremendously broadened our understanding of such optimal processes, in quantum mechanics and in classical physics. A particular highlight are so-called shortcuts to adiabaticity -- finite time processes that mimic adiabatic dynamics without the requirement of slow driving. These exciting new results found relevance and application in a wide variety of fields including Quantum Sensing and Metrology, Finite-Time Thermodynamics, Quantum Simulation, Quantum Computation, Quantum Communication, and Quantum Optimal Control Theory. A second pillar of modern thermodynamic optimization are so-called information engines. In these systems the effects of information gain and its feedback into the dynamics are explicitly studied. As a consequence Maxwell demon-like systems have lost its demonic obscurity and have become an integral part of realistic optimization. All of these processes are frequently governed by inherently nonlinear equations. This conference aims at an exchange of ideas from researchers in Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics, Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Sciences, Quantum Information and Quantum Technologies, Statistical Mechanics, Optimal Control Theory, and Nonlinear Dynamics.
 Topics Quantum Physics, Quantum Information, Statistical Physics, Thermodynamics, Nonequilibrium Physics, Nonlinear Dynamics, Information Theory, Optimal Control, Quantum Control, Complex Quantum Systems, Many-Body Systems, Ultracold Matter, Cold Atoms, Bose-Einstein Condensation, Trapped Ions.

14.LSMATTER15 — New Phases and Emergent Phenomena in Correlated Materials with Strong Spin-Orbit Coupling
 Dates 13 Jul 2015 → 09 Oct 2015
[ID=661776] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 Abstract Recently the understanding and control of spin-orbit coupling have become subjects of intensive research across many different disciplines in condensed matter physics. In particular, spin-orbit coupling in correlated electron materials has been recognized for its role in creating a new class of electronic states that allow crossed-responses of the electrons to electric and magnetic fields. This is especially the case when the spin, orbital, and lattice energy scales are comparable, so that the interplay between different degrees of freedom allows the emergence of novel many-body states and their crossed-responses to external probes. Several new collective states of matter have been proposed in this context, including novel spin-orbital ordered states, correlated topological insulators, topological superconductors, quantum spin liquids, topological semi-metals, and multipolar ordered phases. At the same time, theoretical and experimental efforts are underway to predict and measure elementary excitations of such systems. Equally important is the availability of the increasing number of new quantum materials with significant spin-orbit coupling, including several new 5d transition metal oxides (iridates, osmates etc), multiferroic materials, and heterostructures of transition metal systems.

 Dates 20 Jul 2015 → 24 Jul 2015
[ID=679925] Go to top of page
 LocationSydney, Australia
 Abstract The development of technologies for the 21st century, coupled with fundamental scientific inquiry, is driving new theoretical and experimental research on control in quantum systems. Experience has shown that systematic use of quantum control theory leads to significant improvements in technologies ranging from magnetic resonance to prototype quantum computers. Compelling case studies of quantum control have been developed in wide-ranging fields such as chemistry, metrology, optical networking and computer science.

This is the tenth international workshop on Principles and Applications for Control of Quantum Systems. The first workshop of that name was held at the California Institute of Technology in 2004. We retain its basic aim: to bring together researchers in physics, control theory, dynamical systems, stochastics, signal processing and information science to strengthen the community of quantum control.

16.Gordon Research Conference — Spin Dynamics in Nanostructures 2015
 Dates 26 Jul 2015 → 31 Jul 2015
[ID=655570] Go to top of page
 LocationHong Kong, China
 Abstract Spintronics is a leading contender for future nano-scale, "beyond Moore", data storage, processing, and transmission technologies. In particular, magnetism-based spintronics has enormous largely unexplored potential given its two particular features: (i) the extreme robustness of the magnetic order parameter against elevated temperatures and nanoscale confinement, and, (ii) the power-efficient spin-torque manipulation of the magnetic order by electric currents. As researchers are probing deeper into the spin dynamics of nanostructures, new physics and associated functionalities are being discovered at a dazzling pace. The 2nd Gordon Research Conference and 1st Gordon Research Seminar on "Spin Dynamics in Nanostructures" will provide an important stage for the main players in the field (and those who want to joint them) to present and discuss new results and future plans, in theory, computation, simulation, and experiments. The conference will touch many issues of modern spintronics and magnetism that challenge conventional wisdom. Magnetism occurs in metals and insulators, in the form of ferro-, ferri- and antiferromagnetic ground states, all with specific dynamical properties. Elementary spin wave excitations (magnons) can be excited and controlled by external stimuli such as magnetic fields, heating, electric currents, light (photons) and sound (phonons). The magnetization field may contain topological defects such as domain walls, vortices, and skyrmions that are especially susceptible to perturbations. The spin-orbit interaction is an essential ingredient to access, excite and stabilize magnetic textures and their dynamics. As structures approach the nanometer scale, new challenges arise due to the increased role of internal interfaces and contacts to the outside world and novel emerging quantum effects. Moreover, studies on the femtosecond to picosecond time-scales provide insights into regimes which defy established wisdom. We invite starting and expert researchers from academia and industry with backgrounds in experiment, theory, and computation of magnetism, optics, mechanics, electronics and thermoelectrics to participate in these meetings. The goal of these meetings is to exchange ideas and to discuss the most recent progress and most challenging problems. Of special welcome are junior scientists working on or interested in the field.

 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 Abstract Over the last few years, there has been an upsurge of interest in systems where new physical phenomena may emerge as the result of interplay of relativistic spin-orbit interaction, electron correlation and band-structure topology. A plethora of exotic states of matter have been theoretically proposed and intensively explored experimentally in new compounds of late transition metals and rare earth elements. These novel states of matter include spin-orbit Mott insulators, quantum spin-liquids and spin-ice, correlated topological insulators and semi-metals, topological superconductors, and hidden multipolar phases.

[ID=655333] Go to top of page
 LocationSouth Hadley, United States
 Abstract Exploiting coherence properties of light together with quantum-mechanical matter interferences in order to steer a quantum system to a desired target or dynamical behavior lies at the heart of Quantum Control of Light and Matter. While original ideas were developed in the physical-chemistry community, the field of quantum control has grown well beyond its traditional boundaries, and we are witnessing a tremendous cross-fertilization to neighboring "quantum technologies" in terms of both experimental techniques and theoretical developments. Examples range from NMR and non-linear spectroscopy to ultra-cold quantum matter, and from atto-second science to high-fidelity quantum information processing, including quantum coherence and entanglement in complex systems. The goal of this conference is to bring together theorists and experimentalists pushing the frontiers of this diverse field. In particular, recent experimental and theoretical results will be discussed, including: - Coherent control of atomic, molecular and optical systems - Quantum control of open and complex quantum systems, optimal and robust quantum control techniques - Relevant ultrafast, multidimensional, and nonlinear techniques - Quantum control applications to quantum information and quantum metrology The conference program is designed to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the field, with emphasis on emerging directions and perspectives for future developments. Poster sessions are an essential and traditionally very lively part of the Conference on Quantum Control of Light and Matter. Every participant is encouraged to present highlights from her or his most recent work, preferentially yet unpublished.

The goal of the workshop is to provide a comprehensive picture of top-quark physics and a forum where experimentalists and theorists can discuss the interpretation of top quark results and plan future measurements. The venue will take place in the Hotel Continental Terme, Ischia, the largest island in the bay of Naples and a renown location for thermal spas and beaches. Ischia is reachable by ferry boat or hydrofoil from Naples harbor which is connected by a dedicated bus line with Naples international airport.

28.correl15 — Autumn School on Correlated Electrons: Many-Body Physics - From Kondo to Hubbard
 Dates 21 Sep 2015 → 25 Sep 2015
[ID=714483] Go to top of page
 LocationJülich, Germany
 Abstract Many-body physics has the daunting task of describing the collective behavior of vast assemblies of elementary objects. While the fundamental laws are known, exact solutions like the Bethe Ansatz are exceedingly rare. Nonetheless the past century has witnessed a continuous stream of conceptual breakthroughs, prompted by unforeseen discoveries of new states of matter: superconductivity and superfluidity, antiferromagnetism, the Kondo effect, the Mott transition, symmetry breaking, spin glasses and frustration, heavy Fermions and high-temperature superconductivity. Each of these cooperative phenomena is an example of emergence at work. Their essence can often be captured by simple model Hamiltonians. Describing the richness of real matter requires, however, to increase the complexity of the models significantly, as emergent phenomena are frequently governed by the interplay of several scales. In this year's school we will highlight the Kondo effect, the physics of the Hubbard model, and frustrated quantum spins, covering the range from fundamental mechanisms to the modeling of real materials. The aim of the school is to introduce advanced graduate students and up to the essence of emergence and modern approaches for modeling strongly correlated matter.

 Abstract Interacting artificial many-body systems play a fundamental role in the development of quantum simulators. Using engineered photonic systems, it has recently become possible to realize strongly interacting photon gases, which are particularly well suited for probing non-equilibrium many-body physics. The driven-dissipative nature of these systems is a major reason for the interest in them. Radiative losses are crucial to obtain real-time experimental access to the dynamical evolution of the quantum fluid, while new quantum phases of matter are expected to appear in such non-equilibrium many-body scenarios. These developments require novel theoretical tools to describe and understand them.

31.Third Conference on Quantum Thermodynamics
 Dates 11 Oct 2015 → 16 Oct 2015
[ID=708228] Go to top of page
 LocationPorquerolles Island, France
 Abstract The discovery of the principles of thermodynamics for classical systems was a great advance of 19th century physics. However, for quantum systems, the role of these principles are still very poorly understood. In recent years there have been great advances in the control and observation of heat, work and information in experiments on quantum systems. These provide an ideal testbed for the theories of quantum thermodynamics, and will help clarify the definition and interplay of entropy, information, heat and work in quantum mechanics. This conference is gathering experts in the fields of quantum thermodynamics and quantum information, both theorists and experimentalists. The goal of the event is to foster crossed fertilization between the different communities. Potential experiments in the field will be particularly considered, building on the wide range of devices able to process quantum information, whose recent developments have been spectacular.

32.MBL15 — Many-body Localization

 Abstract This program will focus on the manifestations of quantum mechanics in highly excited many-body systems. The common assumption that interacting systems equilibrate under their own dynamics has been challenged by recent studies. Several concrete examples, united under the moniker of many-body localization, demonstrate that interacting systems can instead exist in localized states, which retain quantum coherence.; In contrast to equilibrated systems, localized systems may exhibit quantum order even at high temperature and thus act as interacting quantum memories for extended periods.; Alternatively, many-body systems may exhibit very slow dynamics and long pre-thermal behavior as a consequence of emergent constants of motion.
