 LocationInstitute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM),, United States
 Abstract Topological phases of matter are remarkable both for their richness of physical phenomena, and for their mathematical description by topological quantum field theories (TQFTs). Recently, the prediction and experimental discovery of topological insulators has spurred physicists to explore the role of symmetry in topological phases, leading to the identification of new classes of phases of matter, and new insights into their classification, properties, and potential physical realizations. This is an area with a history of strong connections between physics and mathematics, and the time is ripe for the emerging understanding of symmetric topological phases to benefit from new mathematical ideas in TQFTs, and vice versa. This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together theoretical physicists and mathematicians to discuss symmetric topological phases and TQFTs, with a goal of forging productive new interactions between these communities.

6.Workshop on Hierarchy of Quantum Mechanics

[ID=665246] Go to top of page
 LocationOkazaki, Japan
 Abstract The vast studies in the careful control of quantum states, motivated by the quantum information science with an aim to develop quantum information processors, have also enabled measurements in unprecedented precision and accuracies. The precision measurements using these quantum technologies can be adopted to answer some of the fundamental questions of quantum mechanics, and possibly expand the quantum mechanical description to a macroscopic system, "the classical big system!". One of the promising systems for the understanding of the macroscopic quantum system is the optomechanical system. Recently, the near ground-state cooling of these systems have been reported and rapid development in the quantum control of the optomehcanical system as well as the control with other quantum systems via hybridization are taking place. While a large variety of optomechanical systems in mass, frequency and dimensional size are developed, the implication of these variation for the understanding of the macroscopic quantum system is still unclear. The aim of this workshop is to review the current technologies on the optomechanical systems and to discuss possible new scientific interests for a macroscopic quantum mechanical system.

7.WQIT — Workshop on quantum information and thermodynamics
 Dates 23 Feb 2015 → 27 Feb 2015
[ID=629101] Go to top of page
 LocationSão Paulo, Brazil
 Abstract Guided by the desire to help France win the Napoleonic Wars, Sadi Carnot gave birth to Thermodynamics. Although primarily focused on the efficiency of heat engines, such theory had developed into one of the principal pillars of modern physics. Even with the advent of relativity and quantum mechanics, the macroscopic laws of thermodynamics remained unchanged. Despite the fact that it is an old theory, thermodynamics is far from being a closed subject. Recently, we have witnessed the impressive increase in the research discussing the fundamentals of this theory, specially concerning small systems as well as dynamics far from equilibrium. The application of informational theoretic tools to the field had contribute a lot in order to increase our understand of the very basis of the theory, leading us to the extension of its laws to the quantum domain. How the macroscopic laws of thermodynamics emerge from the reversible quantum (and classical) dynamics? How to understand the thermalisation of a closed quantum systems? What are the relations between information, thermodynamics and quantum mechanics? How to investigate experimentally the thermodynamical behavior of small quantum systems?

The purpose of this workshop is to gather together several researchers to explore such questions, from the theoretical and experimental point of views.

 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.

15.QUTHERM2015 — Thermodynamics and Nonlinear Dynamics in the Information Age
 Dates 13 Jul 2015 → 17 Jul 2015
[ID=661120] 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.

16.LSMATTER15 — New Phases and Emergent Phenomena in Correlated Materials with Strong Spin-Orbit Coupling

 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.

17.Gordon Research Conference — Spin Dynamics in Nanostructures 2015
 Dates 26 Jul 2015 → 31 Jul 2015
[ID=655603] 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.

 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.

 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.

 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.

23.MBL15 — Many-body Localization
 Dates 12 Oct 2015 → 18 Dec 2015
[ID=661879] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 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.
