Lecture — Christmas Lecture: The Physics of a Youth Hostel
17 Dec 2019 • Sarum College, Salisbury, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Physics – IOP
Abstract:
In my volunteer role as manager of a youth hostel in remote Welsh mountainous terrain, I’ve needed to apply physics to provide the services expected by today’s visitors. There’s no mains water, no landline phone, and no mobile phone signal. Our organisation also has a second hostel which has no mains electricity. The hostels are looked after by a different volunteer warden each week, while I’m 200 miles away in Wiltshire. Everything must be sufficiently reliable to function under those challenging conditions.

1st Padova International School of Physics of the Universe: Multi Messenger Astrophysics
14 Jan 2020 - 23 Jan 2020 • Asiago, Italy
Organizer:
Department of Physics and Astronomy (DFA) of the University of Padova
Abstract:
This first edition focuses on Multi-Messenger Astrophysics. The past four years were marked by huge advancements in this field, with countless invaluable results such as the detection of first gravitational waves, also in correspondence with photons, as well as the simultaneous observation of photons with a 300 TeV neutrino from an active galaxy. The foundation of high energy astroparticle physics are shaken and new theoretical buildings are raised. This calls for additional focused experimental efforts, with careful planning of multi-wavelenght and multi-experiments coordinated observation, especially when pointing telescopes with limited field of view are involved. This school teaches the cosmology and particle physics background needed to seriouslyapproach multi-messenger astrophysics. It includes key lectures, plus a series of topical lectures and seminars. Exercises will be organized throughout the school on all topics. Hands-on will be organized on a selection of codes. The school will be closed with a final exam for self-evaluation.

Particle growth in turbulence
18 May 2020 - 12 Jun 2020 • Stockholm, Sweden
Organizer:
Nordita - Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
The question of how particles and droplets can grow in a turbulent environment is of great current interest in many fields, in astrophysics, cloud microphysics, in biology, and in the engineering sciences. For example, coagulation and condensation in turbulent clouds turn microscopic cloud droplets into rain drops. In astrophysics, planetesimals are thought to form by aggregation of microscopic dust grains in the turbulent environment surrounding a forming star. In both cases, turbulence is believed to be a crucial factor for particle growth. Yet the microscopic mechanisms determining this growth are far from understood. In the past few years there has been substantial progress in understanding the mechanisms that determine how particles move in turbulence, albeit mostly for simplified model systems. The challenge is now to understand how these mechanisms lead to rapid particle growth.

CIMPA-IASBS Research School on Spectra in Riemannian and Symplectic Geometry,
08 Jun 2020 - 18 Jun 2020 • Zanjan, Iran
Abstract:
One of the fascinating bridges between classical mechanics and quantum physics is expressed in the fact that the length spectrum and the Laplace spectrum of a closed Riemannian manifold determine each other (at least generically). Similarly, the set of lengths of the closed orbits of a billiard table and the Laplace spectrum of that table determine each other, at least for certain billiard tables. The main goal of this school is to introduce graduate students and young researchers to basic facts on these two spectra, and to the above correspondence. The length spectrum generalizes to the action spectrum of an autonomous Hamiltonian function. Floer homology filtered by the action spectrum can be used to construct so-called action selectors, that are a principal tool in modern symplectic geometry and dynamics, yielding simple proofs of Gromov's nonsqueezing theorem, the Weinstein conjecture in R^{2n}, the existence of closed orbits in a magnetic fields, etc. The second goal is to understand this relevance of the action spectrum in symplectic geometry. A third, more hypothetical, goal is to see which parts of the two sides can be related.

Prerequisites: We expect that students have had courses in real analysis of several variables, know what an ordinary differential equation is, and have followed a course on curves and surfaces. More knowledge is useful, but not necessary to follow the lectures.

Graduate Summer School: Mathematics of Topological Phases of Matter
22 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Abstract:
The application of topology to physics has become an integral part of a second quantum revolution in the sciences. The discovery of topological insulators and progress towards topological superconductors realizing non-abelian statistics has moved topological phases of matter onto the center stage in the interaction of topology and physics beyond the quantum Hall effect. While topological physics has been intensively investigated by physicists for the last few decades, the mathematical theory lags far behind. One challenge is formulating the right definition of topological phases of matter, which is closely related to the notoriously difficult problem of finding a rigorous mathematical formulation of quantum field theory. In this summer school, we will focus on two relatively mature foundational topics, and two new directions in the mathematics of topological phases of matter.

Summer School — Homotopical Methods in Fixed Point Theory
27 Jul 2020 - 31 Jul 2020 • Evanston, IL, United States
Organizer:
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL
Abstract:
The goal of this summer school is to introduce participants to tools and ideas from algebraic topology and homotopy theory that are used in the study of fixed point theory. The workshop will be centered around mini-courses, both on classical fixed-point theory and on modern techniques such as duality theory, spectra, and trace methods in algebraic K-theory.

The intended audience for this summer school should be familiar with the material in Hatcher (except the appendices). This reflects our goal that the school be accessible to second and third year students with an interest in algebraic topology from any PhD granting institution. The school will be structured around a few mini-courses, which will run in an active-learning style.
