Spin and Heat Transport in Quantum and Topological Materials
21 Oct 2019 - 20 Dec 2019 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
The fields of spintronics, quantum magnetism, topological matter, and quantum criticality have seen progress with breakthroughs in concepts, techniques, and materials. The unifying goals of these fields are to understand novel collective effects that arise in quantum condensed matter systems with common underlying physics, often united through topology and common symmetries. Despite these common goals, these areas of research are still largely unconnected. This program will offer an opportunity for synergies and defining of new directions.
Topics:
spin and heat transport through magnetic insulators, magnon Bose-Einstein condensation and spin superfluidity, topological-charge transport, magnon-based quantum information and computation, Dirac, Weyl and other topologically protected metallic physics in topological matter (including ferromagnetic and anti-ferromagnetic systems), quantum spintronic effects in these systems, strong-correlation effects in spin and heat transport in these and other related materials, and hydrodynamics at quantum critical points with unconventional heat and spin transport

Geometry from the Quantum
13 Jan 2020 - 17 Jan 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
A complete understanding of quantum gravity, as it pertains to our universe, remains one of the biggest challenges in theoretical physics. As our observational constraints on the early universe and black hole physics improve, this theoretical challenge has become even more urgent. This conference aims to explore the latest developments in quantum gravity and string theory, ranging from ideas motivated from holographic dualities to new results developing the landscape of string theory vacua.
Topics:
structure of the landscape of string theory solutions; emergence of spacetime from other degrees of freedom; quantum information aspects of quantum gravity; recent developments in AdS/CFT; QFT methods applied to gravitational problems, such as the analytic conformal bootstrap and UV deformations of QFT; perturbative amplitudes in gravity and string theory

9th International Conference on Quantum Simulation and Quantum Walks
20 Jan 2020 - 24 Jan 2020 • CIRM – Luminy, France
Organizer:
Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM)
Abstract:
This is the 9th in series of international conference focussing on aspects of quantum walks and quantum simulation. Quantum simulation has recently established itself as an area of study in quantum physics that merges fundamental and applied questions. Such an interaction results in a more operational understanding of aspects of quantum mechanics in terms of nature description. The idea to simulate the dynamics of a quantum system by a quantum device was first introduced by Richard Feynman and developed in different frameworks, from mathematics to Computer Science and fundamental physics.

ISQA — Information Security in the Quantum Age
16 Mar 2020 - 20 Mar 2020 • Okinawa, Japan
Organizer:
OIST Graduate University
Abstract:
We would like to announce the workshop ‘Information Security in the Quantum Age’, which will be held from the 16-20th March 2020 at OIST Graduate University on the beautiful island of Okinawa. Uncompromisable information security can be only achieved by relying on unshakeable scientific principles in mathematics or physics. It is therefore directly connected to progress in fundamental research in both of these area and requires constant progress to advance. However, to translate these results into useable technology and to maintain everyday security within the current technology, is a just as important goal to achieve. This meeting will connect Japanese and international  forefront researchers in experimental and theoretical approaches, to discuss the current status, make valuable connections and outline required future progress.

International Workshop "Open Quantum Dynamics and Thermodynamics"
30 Mar 2020 - 03 Apr 2020 • Daejeon, South Korea
Organizer:
Center for Theoretical Physics of Complex Systems, Daejeon, South Korea
Abstract:
The field of open quantum systems is undergoing a rapid phase of development due to the emergence of new devices based on quantum superposition and coherence. In this context, it is crucial to understand: (i) the thermodynamic behavior of small quantum systems, in particular when in contact with an environment; (ii) the related fluctuation relations that connect thermodynamic quantities such as work and free energy of the device; (iii) effects of intermediate and strong coupling to the environment; (iv) many-body effects and their persistence in the presence of dissipation. The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading researchers in this field to present new results and appropriate methodologies to identify and attack the relevant open problems of the field. The invited and contributed talks will cover these aspects related to open quantum systems and also to quantum computing, quantum heat engines, and optimal control of quantum systems.
Topics:
Strong coupling and non-Markovian (thermo-)dynamics, Quantum machines, Many-body open systems, Driven open systems, Fluctuation theorems

Model and Material Advances in Multicomponent Correlated Systems
12 Oct 2020 - 16 Oct 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
In the last decade a number of experimental and theoretical discoveries have caused a notable revival of interest in systems with large local Hilbert spaces which realize a variety of intriguing and largely unexplored phenomena such as non-Fermi-liquid behavior, exotic quantum criticality, orbitally selective Mott physics, multipolar/hidden orders and more. While many models have been proposed for each of these phenomena, a single framework to understand the systems with multiple degrees of freedom and, consequently, richer order parameters and richer quasiparticles, is missing.

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

Entangled Quantum States of Matter: Classification, Creation, Manipulation, Detection
21 Jun 2021 - 24 Jun 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
This conference will explore many aspects of entangled quantum states of matter, with an eye towards their eventual experimental realization. These include non-Fermi liquids, symmetry-protected topological states, and topologically-ordered quantum matter such as gapped and gapless quantum spin liquids. Some of these states harbor nontrivial boundary or edge modes which will also be highlighted. Different topics will be covered including: the classification of entangled topological states which provide a roadmap of what is possible; investigations on how to engineer models built with realistic ingredients guided by theoretical explorations of their phase diagrams; and proposals for the right observables to detect and manipulate these states which can bring them closer from an abstract idea to reality. This conference will bring together experts on many aspects of highly-entangled quantum matter and help connect experts on mathematical aspects of classification and those with numerical expertise that provide information on phase diagrams with experimentalists striving to engineer these states in the lab.
