RESEARCH SCHOOL — Coulomb Gas, Integrability and Painlevé Equations
11 Mar 2019 - 15 Mar 2019 • CIRM Luminy, Marseille, France
Abstract:
Nonlinear integrable systems and their solutions form the core of modern mathematical physics. In recent years, Painlevé's equations have emerged as the core of special function theory. Painlevé equations can be derived from integrable PDEs after scaling reductions. They are also obtained in the matching of asymptotic expansions in the quest to describe critical behaviour in solutions to Hamiltonian PDEs. In this case they play the same role as the Airy function or the Pearcey integral play in the study of the semiclassical limit of the linear Schrodinger equation. Increasingly, as nonlinear science develops, solutions to an extraordinary broas array of scientific problems can be expressed in terms of Painlev? transcendents. The aim of this reserach school is to bring together PhD. students, Postdocs and junior faculty members to focus on the new developements in these fertile lines of research. The proposed format is 4 lectures a day and a free afternoon for discussions.

Mathematical physics of anyons and topological states of matter
11 Mar 2019 - 16 Mar 2019 • Stockholm, Sweden
Abstract:
For quantum systems confined to lower-dimensional geometries there is a possibility to create states of matter that display very non-trivial topological behavior. The most famous example is the fractional quantum Hall effect and its associated effective particles with unusual statistics, called anyons. Despite such models having been studied intensively by physicists for a long time, there has been very little progress on the rigorous mathematical side. The aim of the workshop is therefore to bring together leading experts in the field, both mathematicians and physicists, to summarize the state of the art and to exchange ideas on future directions. In view of the serious theoretical intricacies of the field, particular emphasis will be put on the possible use of recent rigorous mathematics in physical applications.

ESI Programme and Workshop — Higher spins and holography
11 Mar 2019 - 04 Apr 2019 • Vienna , Austria
Organizer:
Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI)
Abstract:
Higher-spin (HS) gauge theories involve a massless particle of spin two, that is a graviton, together with (typically infinitely many) gauge fields of spin greater than two. An important motivation for their study originates from the long-standing difficulties encountered in the quantisation of gravity, which impel to explore extensions thereof that may have a better UV behaviour. Including fields of spin greater than two is mainly suggested by two observations: the constraints brought by a larger gauge symmetry may remove some UV divergences as supersymmetry does, and string theory does involve fields of arbitrary spin. HS gauge theories are indeed models of intermediate complexity with respect to these examples, and aspire to improve the UV behaviour of supergravity models without resorting to fully-fledged string theory and its plethora of additional particles.

TIC-HEAP — The Tenth International Conference on High Energy and Astroparticle Physics
30 Mar 2019 - 02 Apr 2019 • Constantine, Algeria
Abstract:
This Tenth edition of International Conference on High Energy and Astroparticle Physics (TIC-HEAP) is set to be held at Mentouri University, Constantine in Algeria during the period of 30th March to 2 April 2019 (Including the optional touristic trip on the 2nd of April). Held in close coordination with the DGRSDT (The Algerian General Direction of Scientific Research), it will focus on discussing the latest development on particle physics, astroparticle and cosmology, as well as strategically planning for Algeria to become an active participating member of the CERN. It is timely for the Algerian particle physics community to join some of the LHC collaborations as well as other international experiments in experimental particle physics and in particular Astroparticle physics ones like ANTARES experiment and the like. We are heartened in that endeavor by the fact that Algeria has become officially a member of the LHCb collaboration. It has already got the support of well known particle physicists who will be attending. This is why we wish to associate to this meeting to the fullest extent young researchers worldwide as well as our sprouting particle physics community both locally based and from the Diaspora.

In the Balance: Stasis and Disequilibrium in the Milky Way
01 Apr 2019 - 05 Apr 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
The past few years have seen a great deal of progress in understanding the formation and evolution of the Milky Way from the standpoint of numerical simulations and observations. These advances continue to shape our understanding of the Milky Way as a galaxy and as a laboratory for cosmological models of galaxy formation. It has become abundantly clear that non-equilibrium processes in the Milky Way such as satellite interactions, bar dynamics, and spiral structure effects have shaped the present-day structure and kinematics of the Galaxy significantly. The Gaia mission is making an unprecedented map of the distribution of stars in our Galaxy and combined with an array of massive spectroscopic surveys is providing a detailed view from the scale of individual star cluster to the global structure of the disk and halo. This conference will bring together experts in the fields of galactic dynamics, chemical evolution, and numerical galaxy formation to discuss new insights from Gaia and other ongoing surveys on the chemodynamical structure of the Milky Way’s disk, bulge, bar, and halo as well as the co-evolution of these components.

Jean-Morlet Chair Integrability and Randomness in Mathematical Physics
08 Apr 2019 - 12 Apr 2019 • CIRM Luminy, Marseille, France
Abstract:
Over the last 20 years integrability has assumed an increasingly prominent role in various fields of mathematical physics. The modern theory of integrable systems grew up around the study of the Korteweg de Vries (KdV) equation, with origins in the seminal work of Zabusky and Kruskal about the recurrence behaviour of solutions, the discovery of the Lax pair, multi-soliton solutions and infinite number of conservation laws. In other surprising connections, integrable systems like the KdV equation and the Toda lattice were proven to appear in fundamental combinatorial models, in random matrices and the geometry of moduli spaces. The aim of the conference will be to foster interactions among researchers that work in the following fields: - integrable systems and their connections to geometry - random matrices, determinantal point processes and integrable probability - dispersive PDEs in random environment.

Exploring Open Quantum Systems in Quantum Simulators
29 Apr 2019 - 03 May 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
Quantum simulators relying on the coherent control of trapped ions, superconducting quantum circuits, cold atoms and molecules in optical lattices or reconfigurable trap arrays, and integrated quantum optics have become available and are operative in hundreds of different laboratories worldwide. These flexible and highly precise quantum devices present a unique opportunity to resolve outstanding problems in one of the least understood areas of quantum physics, namely, the dynamics of open many-body quantum systems far from thermal equilibrium. Unlike closed quantum systems, where the many-body extension of the Schroedinger equation is well-established, the accurate and efficient description of open quantum systems, especially beyond weak coupling and in the absence of memory effects, presents a formidable task. This conference brings together experimentalists working in different platforms with theorists pushing the boundaries of open quantum systems in fundamental quantum theory and in developing numerical methods, including quantum trajectories, density matrix renormalization and tensor network approaches. Exploring the paradigm beyond markovian master equations will be crucial for developing a comprehensive theoretical framework for the understanding of non equilibrium phenomena and formulating a thermodynamically consistent theory of open quantum systems for advanced materials and nanodevice design in quantum simulators.

Tensions between the Early and the Late Universe
15 Jul 2019 - 17 Jul 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
The standard cosmological model successfully describes observations from widely different epochs of the Universe, from primordial nucleosynthesis all the way to the present day. As the basic cosmological parameters of the model are being determined with increasing and unprecedented precision, it is not guaranteed that the same numerical values for the models’ parameters will continue to fit observations from widely different epochs. Discrepancies between observations at early and late cosmological time, if confirmed at high significance, would require an expansion of the standard model, and may perhaps lead to the discovery of new physics.

Topological Quantum Matter: From Fantasy to Reality
30 Sep 2019 - 03 Oct 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
While the role of topology in the modern condensed matter physics is difficult to overstate, and despite numerous experimental corroborations of theoretically predicted symmetry-protected topological phases (such as topological insulators), most of these advances can be formulated in the language of non-interacting particles. Real-world realizations of interacting topological phases are, meanwhile, very sparse, with the fractional quantum Hall effect being a notable counterexample. Similarly, the question of stability of topological phases at finite temperatures – a prerequisite for their experimental realizations – is poorly explored. This conference will address these and related questions

Active Matter at the Frontier
06 Apr 2020 - 09 Apr 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
Active matter is a class of non-equilibrium, many-body systems that consist of individual energy-transducing components. The collective dynamics of such active entities underlies phenomena on scales from the molecular to the macroscopic, and it includes both living and non-living systems. The field of active matter focuses on understanding how the collective behaviors of internally driven components can give rise to patterns of motion and stress on large scales. While active matter systems violate detailed balance at the molecular scale, it remains unclear how such non-equilibrium dynamics manifests itself and can be quantified at meso- and macroscopic scales. In particular, it is interesting to investigate, given a particular set of microscopic elementary units, what range of possible macroscopic patterns, structures, dynamics and functionalities can be realized. The conference will bring together experimental and theoretical researchers from a broad range of disciplines to discuss recent advances that have transformed active matter into a rapidly growing field that spans diverse disciplines, ranging from physics to biology, to materials science and engineering.

Chromosomes: Organization, Function and Dynamics
22 Jun 2020 - 25 Jun 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
Continuing rapid development in the field of chromatin biology has lately attracted enormous interest among biologists, physicists and mathematicians. Recently, the static structure of the folded genome inside the cell nucleus has been determined with increasingly high resolution. Special features of genome folding, such as loops, A/B compartments and chromosome territories, were identified and have inspired models rooted in polymer physics. Studies of the roles of these features in gene regulation and other biological processes are currently ongoing. In addition, research on chromatin dynamics has shown that the genome moves in space and time, thus these structural features might be dynamic, too. Currently, it is not clear how to reconcile the static picture with the dynamic nature of the genome. Following the recent surge in activity on both the biology and physics fronts, this conference aims to provide a platform that would facilitate an interdisciplinary exchange, cultivate new ideas and identify new frontiers.

Spatiotemporal Control for Probing New Many-Body Physics
13 Jul 2020 - 16 Jul 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
This conference will highlight the diverse applications of emerging spatio-temporal quantum control techniques as well as the novel theoretical and experimental tools being developed to advance these techniques. The implications of many-body quantum control are far-reaching: stabilizing entangled states, realizing new forms of topological order, enhanced precision measurements, guided quantum dynamics for computation, probing quantum chaos, etc. The goal of this conference will be to survey both recent experimental developments in both spatial and temporal control for analysis of many-body quantum optical systems, and recent theoretical progress, with the purpose of identifying fruitful future areas for exploration.
