Topological Quantum Matter: From Fantasy to Reality
30 sep 2019 - 03 oct 2019 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Résumé:
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

Spin and Heat Transport in Quantum and Topological Materials
21 oct 2019 - 20 dec 2019 • Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Organisateur:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
Résumé:
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.
Sujets:
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

Active Matter at the Frontier
06 avr 2020 - 09 avr 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Résumé:
Active matter is a class of non-equilibrium, many-body systems that consist of individual energy-transducing components. The collective dynamics of such active entities underlies phenomena on scales from the molecular to the macroscopic, and it includes both living and non-living systems. The field of active matter focuses on understanding how the collective behaviors of internally driven components can give rise to patterns of motion and stress on large scales. While active matter systems violate detailed balance at the molecular scale, it remains unclear how such non-equilibrium dynamics manifests itself and can be quantified at meso- and macroscopic scales. In particular, it is interesting to investigate, given a particular set of microscopic elementary units, what range of possible macroscopic patterns, structures, dynamics and functionalities can be realized. The conference will bring together experimental and theoretical researchers from a broad range of disciplines to discuss recent advances that have transformed active matter into a rapidly growing field that spans diverse disciplines, ranging from physics to biology, to materials science and engineering.

Uncovering the Physics of Formation of Globular Clusters and their Host Galaxies
11 mai 2020 - 14 mai 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Résumé:
This conference will synthesize recent observational discoveries of massive star clusters in nearby galaxies and the high-redshift universe. It will connect the observations to theoretical modeling of galaxy formation on large scales and star formation on small scales. The topics for discussion will include the efficiency of star cluster formation as a function of environment, and the origins of the cluster age and metallicity distributions. The meeting will aim to highlight the similarities and differences in star formation in low-redshift and high-redshift galaxies.

Chromosomes: Organization, Function and Dynamics
22 jui 2020 - 25 jui 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Résumé:
Continuing rapid development in the field of chromatin biology has lately attracted enormous interest among biologists, physicists and mathematicians. Recently, the static structure of the folded genome inside the cell nucleus has been determined with increasingly high resolution. Special features of genome folding, such as loops, A/B compartments and chromosome territories, were identified and have inspired models rooted in polymer physics. Studies of the roles of these features in gene regulation and other biological processes are currently ongoing. In addition, research on chromatin dynamics has shown that the genome moves in space and time, thus these structural features might be dynamic, too. Currently, it is not clear how to reconcile the static picture with the dynamic nature of the genome. Following the recent surge in activity on both the biology and physics fronts, this conference aims to provide a platform that would facilitate an interdisciplinary exchange, cultivate new ideas and identify new frontiers.

Graduate Summer School: Mathematics of Topological Phases of Matter
22 jui 2020 - 26 jui 2020 • Los Angeles, CA, États-Unis
Résumé:
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.

Spatiotemporal Control for Probing New Many-Body Physics
13 jul 2020 - 16 jul 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Résumé:
This conference will highlight the diverse applications of emerging spatio-temporal quantum control techniques as well as the novel theoretical and experimental tools being developed to advance these techniques. The implications of many-body quantum control are far-reaching: stabilizing entangled states, realizing new forms of topological order, enhanced precision measurements, guided quantum dynamics for computation, probing quantum chaos, etc. The goal of this conference will be to survey both recent experimental developments in both spatial and temporal control for analysis of many-body quantum optical systems, and recent theoretical progress, with the purpose of identifying fruitful future areas for exploration.

The Physics of Modularity
01 dec 2020 - 04 dec 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Résumé:
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.
Sujets:
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

Is There a Common Thread to Layering in Atmospheres, Oceans and Plasmas?
05 jan 2021 - 08 jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Résumé:
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.
