Illustrating Mathematics (Semester Program)
04 Sep 2019 - 06 Dec 2019 • ICERM/ Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
Abstract:
The Illustrating Mathematics program brings together mathematicians, makers, and artists who share a common interest in illustrating mathematical ideas via computational tools. The goals of the program are to: introduce mathematicians to new computational illustration tools to guide and inform their research; spark collaborations among and between mathematicians, makers and artists; and find ways to communicate research mathematics to as wide an audience as possible.
Topics:
Geometry and Topology, Algebra and Number Theory, Dynamics and Probability,

Topological Quantum Matter: From Fantasy to Reality
30 Sep 2019 - 03 Oct 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
While the role of topology in the modern condensed matter physics is difficult to overstate, and despite numerous experimental corroborations of theoretically predicted symmetry-protected topological phases (such as topological insulators), most of these advances can be formulated in the language of non-interacting particles. Real-world realizations of interacting topological phases are, meanwhile, very sparse, with the fractional quantum Hall effect being a notable counterexample. Similarly, the question of stability of topological phases at finite temperatures – a prerequisite for their experimental realizations – is poorly explored. This conference will address these and related questions

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. It explores connections between the most recent experimental and theoretical progress in these areas, setting the stage for the program and establishing targets and key grand challenges.

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.
