Workshop — M^5 - Mathematics of Multiphase, Multiscale, Multiphysics Models
16 Aug 2020 - 21 Aug 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
While the traditional processing industries developed in the early 1900 when our ability to solve such complex multiphase flow equations were limited, the next generation of processing industries that rely not on fossil fuel, but on renewable bio-feedstock, can be built using modular technologies with design tools built on strong foundational mathematical models for multiphase flows. The BIRS workshop will bring together mathematicians, scientists and engineers working on this field to learn from each other the current state of the science of multiphase flows to enable such innovations.

Workshop — Geometry and Physics of Quantum Toroidal Algebra
06 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
The theories of rational/trigonometric/elliptic functions were developed as functions over plane/cylinder/torus, respectively, before the 20th century. Among them, the theory of elliptic functions is most interesting, and it can be understood as the parent theory of the rest. During the 20th century, the same rational/trigonometric/elliptic trichotomy has been also found in integrable systems, algebras and cohomology groups. Like the theory of functions, recent development reveals that the relationship among integrable system, algebra, geometry, and physics becomes most profound at elliptic level. In particular, Lie algebras (rational) are promoted to affine Lie algebras (trigonometric) and toroidal Lie algebras (elliptic). The workshop aims at investigating quantum versions of toroidal Lie algebras, called quantum toroidal algebras.

Are there Universal Laws in Non-Equilibrium Statistical Physics?
18 Sep 2020 • Stockholm, Sweden
Organizer:
Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita)
Abstract:
Equilibrium statistical physics provides an extremely powerful, universal formalism that tells us how many-particle systems in thermal equilibrium behave, and how we can characterize their properties by only a few macroscopic quantities. However, most systems and processes found in nature are out of equilibrium. Think of any living organism, or directed transport in cells mediated by molecular motors. Often these systems consist of only a few entities and are so small that thermal fluctuations play a prominent role. It has been a vision from the early days of statistical mechanics to develop a theoretical description for such small non-equilibrium systems that is comparably powerful and universal as is equilibrium statistical physics. The aim of this program is to bring together the leading experts in (non-equilibrium) statistical physics to critically discuss and evaluate the latest developments towards a universal theory for non-equilibrium systems.

Workshop — Modular Forms in Number Theory and Physics
20 Sep 2020 - 25 Sep 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Modular forms have been one of the central topics in number theory for more a century and they continue to experience a wide range of applications throughout mathematics nowadays. Different incarnations of modularity, known as quasi-modular forms, quantum modular forms, Jacobi forms and Siegel modular forms regularly show up in physics topics such as mirror symmetry, topological quantum field theory, Gromov-Witten invariants, conformal field theory, Calabi-Yau manifolds. The principal goal of the proposed conference is to assess the role of various modular forms in recent developments in number theory, geometry and string theory.

Mathematical and Computational Approaches for the Einstein Field Equations with Matter Fields Virtual Workshop
26 Oct 2020 - 30 Oct 2020 • Providence RI - Virtual Workshop, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on theoretical and computational approaches to solving the Einstein field equations (the master equation of general relativity: a nonlinear, coupled, hyperbolic-elliptic PDE system) with (fluid) matter field sources, as typical of binary neutron stars and supernovae. Simulations of these systems are targets of interest to both LIGO and telescopes such as Hubble, Fermi, and CHANDRA. In this workshop, special attention will be given to the governing equations of relativistic (magneto- ) hydrodynamics and multi-scale, multi-physics modeling challenges.

Workshop — Nonlocal Problems in Mathematical Physics, Analysis and Geometry
08 Nov 2020 - 13 Nov 2020 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Nonlinear problems are problems which solutions satisfy an equation where the different physical constants involved are depending on the solution itself. This dependence can be nonlocal in the sense that it depends on the solution globally. For instance the motion of a population can be influenced by the total population and not only by the population very locally. One of the goals of the workshop is to deepen the human knowledge in this field applied to different situations.

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

Is There a Common Thread to Layering in Atmospheres, Oceans and Plasmas?
05 Jan 2021 - 08 Jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
A fascinating and surprising phenomenon that can occur in fluid and plasma turbulence is the spontaneous formation of arrays of layers in which material properties such as density adopt a so-called “staircase” structure. The most striking examples are potential vorticity staircases in planetary atmospheres, and thermohaline staircases in the oceans. Theoretical considerations suggest that layering also plays an important role in stellar interiors (particularly through various double-diffusive processes) and in fusion confinement devices (the so-called E x B staircase). Understanding the phenomenon of layering is, therefore, not only of intrinsic scientific interest (e.g., is there a common thread to layering in these very different contexts?), but is also crucial for an accurate description of turbulent transport in, for example, models of large-scale ocean flow, the evolution of stellar interiors and confinement in tokamaks.

The Statistical Physics of Continuum Particle Systems with Strong Interactions
18 Jan 2021 - 28 Jan 2021 • Singapore, Singapore
Organizer:
Institute for Mathematical Sciences/National University of Singapore
Abstract:
This is a two-week program gathering mathematicians and physicists interested in the statistical physics of strongly correlated and long range random particle systems. These particle systems include Gibbs point processes such as Coulomb gases, determinantal point process, eigenvalues of random matrices, etc. They are linked to mathematical long-standing challenges such as the crystallization and best packing conjectures among others. One aspect that we want to put forward in this meeting is that the pioneering tools from classical statistical mechanics à la Ruelle, Lanford, Lebowitz may not have been used enough for the study of these particle systems yet.

Geometry, Analysis, and Quantum Physics of Monopoles
31 Jan 2021 - 05 Feb 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The subject of magnetic monopoles is by now classic in both physics and mathematics. Since intense advancements in mid 1970’s, numerous deep connections to theoretical physics, algebraic geometry, and geometric analysis have been discovered. Nonetheless, many important problems remain unsolved. Recently, monopoles acquired new significance in areas such as string theory, the Seiberg--Witten theory, quantum gauge-theory spaces of vacua, knot invariants, and the Geometric Langlands correspondence. This workshop brings together experts from around the world advancing very different perspectives, identify important open problems, and connecting diverse methods used by different groups.

Quantization in Derived Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory
02 May 2021 - 07 May 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
An essential paradigm in science is solving a problem through the study of its symmetries. Whether dealing with a chemical, physical, or mathematical system, its symmetries are intimately related to the conservation laws characterizing the system itself. Therefore, their study leads us to its full understanding. Quantum groups are deformations of the most elementary symmetries in Nature, describing, for example, infinitesimal layers of ice. They first appeared in the eighties as symmetries of one and two-dimensional statistical mechanical models and are nowadays ubiquitous objects in mathematics. Quantum groups represent only an instance of the more general Theory of Quantization, in which the procedure of "deforming" classical structures gives rise to their "quantum" analog. This theory proved soon to have spectacular connections with many and only apparently unrelated areas of mathematics and physics, especially in representation theory (as described above), algebraic geometry (in particular the theory of moduli spaces), and theoretical physics (e.g. gauge theory). The present workshop aims to provide a survey of the state of the art of the Quantization Theory, with a special emphasis on using advanced techniques from (derived) algebraic geometry to the realm of Quantization.

Analysis on Singular Spaces
16 May 2021 - 21 May 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
The presence of singularity in mathematics and physics is an omnipresent phenomena which is the subject of an enormous amount of current research. One reason for this is that techniques which are useful and well understood in the context of smooth spaces do not carry over automatically to singular spaces in general. Depending on the type of singularity involved, one might find that a theorem which is true in the smooth setting requires modification even to make sense in a particular singular setting, and a singular object with extra structure may lead to a generalization of a theorem in which that extra structure plays a role.

Quantum chaos and number theory
23 May 2021 - 27 May 2021 • The Steinhardt Museum of Natural History, Tel Aviv, Israel
Abstract:
The conference “Analytic Number Theory, Quantum Chaos and their Interfaces” aims at gathering distinguished researchers working in either of the disciplines to discuss recent research advances in these fields, and serve as a playground for the exchange of ideas between these, rather diverse, research communities. Another purpose of our conference is to provide a solid educational platform for more junior researchers (PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and early career permanent faculty) who aspire to conduct research in the relevant fields and expose them to some of the outstanding results and open problems as well as to meet other researchers with similar academic interests, with high potential to start new research collaborations. Being a home to Professor Zeev Rudnick, who has contributed greatly to unifying the main subjects of the conference and established some relevant fundamental results in these fields, Tel Aviv University is a natural place for such a meeting to take place.

Thermodynamic Formalism for Geodesic Flows
27 Jun 2021 - 02 Jul 2021 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
This workshop will study this question for systems of geometric origin. One example of this is a particle bouncing inside a region -- think of a ball bouncing around a billiard table, or a light beam bouncing around a room whose walls are mirrors. If the walls are flat then the behavior is fairly predictable, but if they are curved then one often observes random-looking behavior in the long run. Or imagine walking in a straight line along a surface; if the surface is flat then changing the starting point a little will lead to a predictable change in the trajectory. However, if the surface is curved like a saddle then different trajectories will spread out and your location after walking for a long time will eventually seem to be random. The task of giving precise descriptions of systems such as these requires a more complete development of the theory of thermodynamic formalism for systems of geometric origin, which is precisely the goal of this workshop.

Subfactors, Vertex Operator Algebras, and Tensor Categories
19 Sep 2021 - 24 Sep 2021 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Subfactors and vertex operator algebras are mathematical structures that at first glance appear very different, but both are used in the mathematical study of quantum field theory. In particular, vertex operator algebras are algebraic structures arising in two-dimensional conformal field theory (CFT), a quantum field theory with applications ranging from string theory to condensed matter physics to quantum computing. On the other hand, subfactors are closely related to conformal nets, which are a functional-analytic approach to CFT. Because they are both mathematical descriptions the same quantum field theory, the theories of vertex operator algebras and conformal nets are widely believed to be equivalent, but only in the last few years has there been substantial progress in establishing an equivalence. As many important results in conformal field theory have been established for either vertex operator algebras or conformal nets, but not necessarily both, developing connections and equivalences will be useful for answering open questions in both mathematical formulations of CFT.
