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.

Quantum Thermodynamics of Non-equilibrium Systems
13 Oct 2020 - 16 Oct 2020 • Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain
Abstract:
The workshop will focus on new developments in the understanding of quantum thermodynamics in non-equilibrium systems, with emphasis on the meso- and nanoscopic scale. Special attention will go to possible implementations of proof-of-principle experiments of systems working in the quantum regime. We intend to bring together experts and younger researchers in the field of non-equilibrium quantum thermodynamics so as to stimulate exchange and discussions about the newest topics in the field. Therefore, besides the invited talks, we plan slots for contributed talks, a poster session and time for discussion. We hope the conference will lead to new collaborations, and that it will contribute to the progress of the field through the interchange of information and new ideas.
Topics:
Basic phenomena of thermodynamics at the quantum level, Proof of principle proposals and experiments, Quantum heat engines, Link between information and thermodynamics, Bath engineering (for state preparation, Lindbladian engineering), Control of quantum dynamics

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.

Introductory Workshop: Mathematical problems in fluid dynamics
25 Jan 2021 - 29 Jan 2021 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The workshop will address topics in the PDE analysis of the basic equations of the incompressible fluid dynamics (the Euler equations for inviscid flows, the Navier Stokes equations for viscous flows), interface problems (water waves), and other related equations. Open problems and connections to related branches of mathematics will be discussed, including the phenomena of turbulence and the zero viscosity limit. Both theoretical and numerical aspects of these topics will be considered. There will be some colloquium style lectures as well as shorter research talks. The workshop is open to all.

Recent Developments in Fluid Dynamics
12 Apr 2021 - 23 Apr 2021 • Berkeley, California, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI)
Abstract:
The aim of the workshop is to bring together a broad array of researchers working on incompressible fluid dynamics. Some of the key topics to be covered are Euler flows, Navier Stokes equations as well as water wave flows and associated model equations. Some emphasis will also be placed on numerical analysis of the above evolutions.

Frontiers in Billiard Dynamics
30 May 2021 - 04 Jun 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:
Mathematical billiards are a fast growing field of the modern theory of dynamical systems and a deep source of insights, methods and examples in dynamics. It has greatly impacted many areas, ranging from integrable Hamiltonian systems and KAM theory, hyperbolic (chaotic) systems, to Teichm\"uller dynamics. It has also stimulated much recent applied research in such areas of mathematical physics as equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and quantum theory. The proposed workshop will bring together leading mathematicians, mathematical physicists, and younger researchers whose work is connected to the theory and applications of billiard dynamics from a variety of perspectives. Topics will include new modalities of billiard systems, with special attention given to applications to statistical physics such as, for example, the study of classical and quantum transport phenomena.

XX International Workshop on Numerical Methods for Non-Newtonian Flows
06 Jun 2021 - 11 Jun 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:
Fluids that exhibit physical behaviours which are not Newtonian are extremely common in nature and in industrial contexts. These occur in many processes underlying natural resource industries (mining, oil and gas). These are key in manufacturing industries such as polymer processing and in new environmentally-driven manufacturing products such as printing/layering in battery manufacture, coating flows, drug and droplet encapsulation and many bio-fluid applications (e.g. blood, mucus, semen, synovial fluids). This workshop brings together mathematically oriented scientists and engineers to work on these societally important issues.

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.

New Mechanisms for Regularity, Singularity, and Long Time Dynamics in Fluid Equations
25 Jul 2021 - 30 Jul 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The workshop brings together top experts in the field, and creates an environment where all the latest ideas, intuition and techniques can be shared and refined. Another important goal of the proposed workshop is to introduce junior researchers to a highly active area of research in PDEs of fluid dynamics. We will give preferences to young researchers when inviting speakers to the workshop.
