Qualitative Methods in KPZ Universality
ID
879999
Dates
24 Apr 2017 - 27 Apr 2017
Location
CIRM Luminy, France
Abstract
Universality of Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) scalings is a very active area in statistical mechanics and mathematical physics. A big progress was achieved very recently in deriving exact formulas related to Tracy-Widom distributions and Airy processes. However, despite very clean and concrete predictions and a wide belief in the validity of the conjectures, little progress has been achieved in our understanding of the problem of universality. The proposed workshop-part of the Jean-Morlet Chair semester awarded to Konstantin Khanin and Senya Shlosman-will concentrate on qualitative methods which are applicable in a very general situation. One of the strategies is based on the analysis of global solutions to the random Hamilton-Jacobi equation. This workshop will focus on the problem of universality.

NSAatCIRM — Mathematical aspects of the physics with non-self-adjoint operators
ID
870104
Dates
05 Jun 2017 - 09 Jun 2017
Location
Marseille, France
Abstract
This conference is intended as a follow-up of other highly successful events held in Europe (ESF Exploratory Workshop, Prague 2010; ICMS Workshop, Edinburgh 2013; AIM Workshop, San Jose 2015). While the above workshops were deliberately smaller, and less formal meetings focused on open problems in the field, this event at CIRM will be a full-scale conference to which previous activities naturally result. The main goal is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations across the mathematical analysis and mathematical physics community, with a central role being played by the theory of non-self-adjoint operators. The meeting will address state-of-the-art techniques for the mathematically rigorous analysis of non-self-adjoint phenomena encountered in main stream and newly developing fields of physics. An emphasis will be put on non-self-adjoint operators related to problems in superconductivity, graphene, repeated interaction quantum systems, hydrodynamics, quantum mechanics with non-Hermitian operators, optics and metamaterials. Experts in operator theory, microlocal analysis, and mathematical physics will be brought together to address challenging open problems involving the rigorous mathematical framework of the physical theories.
