Spintronics Meets Topology in Quantum Materials
12 Nov 2019 - 15 Nov 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
This conference is intended to kickstart the program "Spin and Heat Transport in Quantum and Topological Materials" which combines the fields of spintronics, quantum magnetism, topological matter, and quantum criticality.

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

AIM Workshop: Mathematics of topological insulators
16 Mar 2020 - 20 Mar 2020 • New York, New York, United States
Abstract:
This workshop, sponsored by AIM, the Simons Foundation, and the NSF, will consider the role of topology in characterizing materials and in the prediction of their physical properties, particularly for two-dimensional material such as graphene. The focus will be on important mathematical questions at the interface of the analysis and topology in the context of the governing fundamental partial differential equations and other models. Two such questions are the bulk edge correspondence and the existence and robustness of edge states in aperiodic settings.

Floer homology in low-dimensional topology
27 Apr 2020 - 01 May 2020 • Long Island, NY, United States
Organizer:
Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, Long Island, NY
Abstract:
This workshop will explore topics of current interest in the theory of Floer homology for 3-manifolds. Floer homology is a powerful tool for studying the topology of 3- and 4-dimensional manifolds, and the relations between them. The first such invariants were introduced by Floer, and arose in the context of Donaldson theory on smooth 4-manifolds.

Combinatorial Applications of Computational Geometry and Algebraic Topology
31 May 2020 - 06 Jun 2020 • West Greenwich, RI, United States
Organizer:
American Matheamtical Society
Abstract:
The new and rapidly expanding area of Analytic Combinatorics in Several Variables (ACSV) concerns enumeration problems in such areas as lattice walks, statistical mechanical models, quantum walks and other exactly solvable models where asymptotic estimation of coefficients of a bivariate or multivariate generating function is required. The multivariate setting incorporates a wider swath of mathematics. including singularity theory, algebraic topology, and computational algebra. Participants in this MRC will be introduced to problems from these areas of mathematics whose solutions have direct applications to ACSV. These problems are not hard to state in the language of disciplines such as Morse theory, harmonic analysis, or commutative algebra, but they ask questions not typical in those fields. A long-term goal is to advance and automate this work, so that its benefits can be used by other researchers in mathematics and the natural sciences through implementations in computer algebra packages. Problems for this MRC will be arranged around five central topics: effective computer algebra methods, algorithms using computational topology, multivariate asymptotic phase transitions, singular transforms for degenerate saddle-point integrals, and applications of harmonic analysis and singularity theory. Researchers with knowledge in any one of these areas are encouraged to apply to this MRC.

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.
