School and workshop — SPR-KKR hands-on course on magnetism and spectroscopy - calculations with spin polarized relativistic Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker (SPR-KKR) code
27 Apr 2020 - 30 Apr 2020 • Daresbury, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The hands-on course will focus on electronic calculations based on the KKR band structure methodology. This approach, based on multiple scattering theory, gives access to the Greens function of both ordered and disordered systems, as well as layered systems, surfaces and clusters in real space, allowing a direct connection to a wide variety of spectroscopies and magnetic properties. The Munich SPR-KKR code is a uniquely powerful software package implementing a wide variety of spectroscopies, transport and magnetic properties that are rather difficult to access using most electronic structure codes, such as ARPES calculations or the calculation of higher-order magnetic exchange interactions. The code will be introduced together with the associated graphical user interface, xband. With applications in magnetism and transport as well as calculations of a number of spectroscopies, the hands-on course will be of interest to both theoreticians and experimentalists working in different areas of materials science. Participants will be encouraged to submit posters and present them at the course.

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.

Combinatorial and DG-Algebra Techniques for Free Resolutions
08 Jun 2020 - 19 Jun 2020 • Tianjin, China
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The two topics, combinatorial theory of free resolutions and differential graded algebra techniques in homological algebra, each have a long and rich history in commutative algebra and its applications to algebraic geometry. Free resolutions are at the center of much of the study in the field and these two approaches give powerful tools for their study and their application to other problems. Neither of these topics is generally covered in graduate courses. Furthermore, recent developments have exhibited exciting interplay between the two subjects. The purpose of the school is to introduce the graduate students to these subjects and these new developments. The school will consist of two lectures each day and carefully planned problem sessions designed to reinforce the foundational material and to give them a chance to experiment with problems involving the interplay between the two subjects.

Algebraic Theory of Differential and Difference Equations, Model Theory and their Applications
15 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The purpose of the summer school will be to introduce graduate students to effective methods in algebraic theories of differential and difference equations with emphasis on their model-theoretic foundations and to demonstrate recent applications of these techniques to studying dynamic models arising in sciences. While these topics comprise a coherent and rich subject, they appear in graduate coursework in at best a piecemeal way, and then only as components of classes for other aims. With this Summer Graduate School, students will learn both the theoretical basis of differential and difference algebra and how to use these methods to solve practical problems. Beyond the lectures, the graduate students will meet daily in problem sessions and will participate in one-on-one mentoring sessions with the lecturers and organizers.

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.

Foundations and Frontiers of Probabilistic Proofs
29 Jun 2020 - 10 Jul 2020 • Zurich, Switzerland
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
In recent years, such probabilistic proofs received much attention due to a new motivation, delegation of computation, which is the emphasis of this summer school. This paradigm admits ultra-fast protocols that allow one party to check the correctness of the computation performed by another, untrusted, party. These protocols have even been realized within recently-deployed technology, for example, as part of cryptographic constructions known as succinct non-interactive arguments of knowledge (SNARKs). This summer school will provide an introduction to the field of probabilistic proofs and the beautiful mathematics behind it, as well as prepare students for conducting cutting-edge research in this area.

Algebraic Curves
29 Jun 2020 - 10 Jul 2020 • Hainan, China
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The theory of algebraic curves, arguably the oldest branch of algebraic geometry, has seen major developments in recent years, for example in the study of syzygies, and around questions about moduli spaces and Hilbert schemes of curves. The theory is rich in research activity and unsolved problems. There is an encyclopedic work by Arbarello, Cornalba, Griffiths and Harris, but there is no modern text that could be used as a textbook and that goes beyond the basics of the theory. We have embarked on a project to write a book at roughly the level of the wonderful book on complex algebraic surfaces by Arnaud Beauville.

Abstract:
The topic of random graphs is at the forefront of applied probability, and it is one of the central topics in multidisciplinary science where mathematical ideas are used to model and understand the real world. At the same time, random graphs pose challenging mathematical problems that have attracted the attention from probabilists and combinatorialists since the 1960, with the pioneering work of Erd\"{o}s and R?nyi. Around the turn of the millennium, very large data sets started to become available, and several applied disciplines started to realize that many real-world networks, even though they are from various different origins, share many fascinating features.

13 Jul 2020 - 24 Jul 2020 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The study of nonnegative polynomials and sums of squares is a classical area of real algebraic geometry dating back to Hilbert's 17th problem. It also has rich connections to real analysis via duality and moment problems. In the last 15 years, sums of squares relaxations have found a wide array of applications from very applied areas (e.g., robotics, computer vision, and machine learning) to theoretical applications (e.g., extremal combinatorics, theoretical computer science).

20 Jul 2020 - 24 Jul 2020 • Aix-en-Provence, France
Organizer:
Aix-Marseille University in Aix-en-Provence at the Institut de Management Public Et Gouvernance Territoriale (IMPGT)
Abstract:
The subject of this year’s school is “The Impact and Consequences of Energetic Particles on Fusion Plasmas”. As the start of ITER operations approaches, it is timely to address this multidisciplinary topic that includes plasma self-heating by fusion-born alpha-particles, the influence of energetic particles on stability, diagnosing energetic particle transport and loss, and understanding runaway electrons. The ITER International School aims to prepare young scientists and engineers for working in the field of nuclear fusion and in research applications associated with the ITER Project. The adoption of a “school format” was a consequence of the need to prepare future scientists and engineers on a range of different subjects and to provide them with a wide overview of the interdisciplinary skills required by the ITER project.

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.
