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.

BIGW 2019 — British Isles Graduate Workshop 2019
09 Jun 2019 - 15 Jun 2019 • Jersey, United Kingdom
Abstract:
BIGWIII is the third edition of the annual summer workshop on themes in geometry. The theme of this workshop will be "Gauge Theory with a View to Higher Dimensions". The goal is to bring together a group of approximately 25 graduate students to work on a specific topic under the guidance of three senior mathematicians. The majority of the talks will be given by the participants, and there will be time in the afternoons and evenings for further discussions and more informal sessions. The character of the workshop is expository in nature, starting with the basic ideas and leading to a survey of the most recent developments in the field; no prior knowledge of the topic will be assumed. Since both the participants and the mentors will be living in the same building, we hope to create an informal, yet mathematically intensive, atmosphere.

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.

2nd IMA Conference on Inverse Problems from Theory to Application
04 Sep 2019 - 06 Sep 2019 • London, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics & its Applications (IMA)
Abstract:
An inverse problem refers to a situation where the quantity of interest cannot be measured directly, but only through an action of a nontrivial operator of which it is a parameter. The corresponding operator, also called forward operator, stems from a physical application modelling. Prominent examples include: Radon and Fourier transforms for X-ray CT and MRI, respectively or partial differential equations e.g. EIT or DOT.

The prevalent characteristics of inverse problems is their ill-posedness i.e. lack of uniqueness and/or stability of the solution. This situation is aggravated by the physical limitations of the measurement acquisition such as noise or incompleteness of the measurements. Inverse problems are ubiquitous in applications from bio-medical, science and engineering to security screening and industrial process monitoring. The challenges span from the analysis to efficient numerical solution. This conference will bring together mathematicians and statisticians, working on theoretical and numerical aspects of inverse problems, as well as engineers, physicists and other scientists, working on challenging inverse problem applications. We welcome industrial representatives, doctoral students, early career and established academics working in this field to attend.

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

Mathematical Aspects of Physics with Non-Self-Adjoint Operators: 10 Years After
23 Mar 2020 - 27 Mar 2020 • CIRM – Luminy, France
Organizer:
Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM)
Abstract:
Significant developments in the spectral analysis of non-self-adjoint operators since the turn of the millennium include the explicit construction of well-localised almost-eigenvectors, the systematisation of the notion of pseudospectra and the rigorous setting of unbounded solvers for evolution problems. At the same time, a deep understanding of complicated physical phenomena such as cloaking in metamaterials, turbulence and explosive behaviour, has been achieved by means of close examination of the underlying non-self-adjoint operators. These developments involve combining techniques from diverse disciplines and in recent years groups who had been working on similar problems from different perspectives, often using different terminology, have been unaware of each other.

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.

Uncovering the Physics of Formation of Globular Clusters and their Host Galaxies
11 May 2020 - 14 May 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
This conference will synthesize recent observational discoveries of massive star clusters in nearby galaxies and the high-redshift universe. It will connect the observations to theoretical modeling of galaxy formation on large scales and star formation on small scales. The topics for discussion will include the efficiency of star cluster formation as a function of environment, and the origins of the cluster age and metallicity distributions. The meeting will aim to highlight the similarities and differences in star formation in low-redshift and high-redshift galaxies.

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.
