CSS 2020 — Cosmology on Small Scales 2020: Excessive Extrapolations and Selected Controversies in Cosmology
23 Sep 2020 - 26 Sep 2020 • Prague, Czech Republic
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences
Abstract:
According to the modern cosmological paradigm, about 2/3 of the energy of the Universe is in the dark form and about 5/6 of the matter is invisible. However, numerous recent attempts to detect independently the dark-matter particles failed, and a number of other problems with the existence of dark energy and dark matter (such as the anomalous friction in the dark-matter halos of galaxies, etc.) become now more and more obvious. All these troubles raise the question if the "dark" substance is merely a result of excessive extrapolations involved in the theoretical analysis? So, it is timely to gather specialists from various branches of astronomy and astrophysics to discuss these issues.
Topics:
Mathematical aspects of the extrapolations used in cosmology, Arguments for and against dark matter, and revisiting the foundations of physics, Alternative models for dark matter and dark energy, A systematic discord in the value of the Hubble constant derived by different methods, Theoretical possibility and observational evidence for small-scale cosmological effects, Complementary redshifts of non-cosmological nature, Quantum effects on the early universe and their observational imprints at the present time

Less Travelled Path of Dark Matter: Axions and Primordial Black Holes
09 Nov 2020 - 13 Nov 2020 • Bangalore, India
Abstract:
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the original program has been canceled. However, the program will be conducted through online lectures.

The existence of dark matter (DM) has been inferred from its gravitational interactions, yet the identity of the dark matter particles remains completely unknown. The dominant candidate for DM over the last 30 years has been Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs). However, despite extensive underground (direct), telescope (indirect), and collider searches, dedicated experiments have not found any evidence of WIMPs. Meanwhile, several astrophysical small-scale structure and cosmological hints might be an indication that DM has non-gravitational interactions that cannot easily be explained with vanilla WIMPs.

This online workshop on the Less Travelled Path of Dark Matter (LTPDM) will bring together particle physicists and cosmologists from all over the world to address current trends in DM searches, focused on axions and primordial black holes, and map the way forward. The program will also include a school, with lectures addressed to students and postdocs, familiarizing them with new and advanced concepts.

We plan to have a longer physical workshop on dark matter, with a larger perspective, in the near future once the current global pandemic crisis has subsided.

The Physics of Modularity
01 Dec 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Modularity is at the heart of many deep results in mathematics--from the proof of Fermat’s last theorem to moonshine to the Langlands correspondence. At the same time, modular group representations and automorphic forms underlie many interesting physical phenomena in quantum field theory and string theory, including understanding of dualities, boundary conditions, and supersymmetric black holes, among other things. This conference will bring together physicists and mathematicians to discuss emerging connections between a web of fundamental objects in physics and mathematics, united in the crucial role played by modularity.
Topics:
new moonshines and mock modular forms; vertex operator algebras arising in supersymmetric gauge theories; topological invariants of 3- and 4-manifolds; topological QFTs and topological phases in condensed matter physics; topological string theory, Donaldson-Thomas theory, and enumerative geometry; scattering amplitudes in string theory; 2d conformal field theories, the modular bootstrap, and connections to 3d quantum gravity

Searches and Machine Learning Meet the Precision Frontier
12 Apr 2021 - 15 Apr 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s facility for probing fundamental physics at the electroweak scale and well beyond. As it enters a new phase of extended data accumulation, two broad challenges emerge: how to fulfill the potential for percent-level precision with the large dataset, and how to maximise the information that can be extracted from each event about the underlying scattering process, in particular with machine learning. Solving these problems will have an impact across a wide range of physics topics: establishing the properties of the newly discovered interactions of the Higgs sector and understanding electroweak symmetry breaking, enhancing the sensitivity of searches for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM), and precision measurements of a range of fundamental parameters in the Standard Model.

Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
New experiments are challenging our conventional understanding of past, present, and future in the quantum world. This workshop will, therefore, explore the very foundations of our understanding of space, time, and gravity by looking at new mathematical concepts and methods related to the quantum processes of measuring location, orientation, speed, cause and effect. We expect to forge a path that blends together new ideas on how our description of the structure of space and time must be modified to fully understand how to combine gravity with quantum physics.

Gravitational Emergence in AdS/CFT
24 Oct 2021 - 29 Oct 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
An outstanding problem of modern physics is the reconciliation of the two most successful broad theories of physics: general relativity, which describes the gravitational force exerted by massive objects in terms of the bending and rippling of spacetime, and quantum mechanics, which describes the behavior of matter on the minute scales of subatomic particles such as electrons. While both theories are remarkably successful independently, they appear to give contradictory predictions of phenomena that involve gravity at the small scales at which quantum mechanics is relevant. Such phenomena include the Big Bang, when the universe was small enough to be described by quantum mechanics and sufficiently dense to also require a gravitational description; also the process of the final stages of the death of a large star, when a black hole is formed and the star’s matter is concentrated in an extremely small volume. A proper description of these phenomena requires a unified theory of quantum gravity.
