ICERM Semester Program on Singularities and Waves In Incompressible Fluids
ID
734334
Dates
30 Jan 2017 - 05 May 2017
Location
Providence, United States
Abstract
Incompressible fluids are an abundant source of mathematical and practical problems. The question of global-in-time regularity versus finite-time singularity formation for incompressible fluids, governed by the Navier-Stokes or Euler equations, has been one of the most challenging outstanding problems in applied PDE. There have also been new developments in the study of the onset of turbulence due to linear and nonlinear instabilities in incompressible fluids. Interfacial and surface water waves are physical phenomena that, in addition to the challenges outlined above, involve the evolution of free boundaries. These problems embody many of the mathematical challenges found in studies of nonlinear PDEs.

Progress on these topics is possible because of advances in analysis, numerical computations and physical experiments. In addition, ocean field observations provide a reality test to all conclusions and invite new problems to be addressed. In this program, we provide a venue for interaction among researchers engaged in all of these problem-solving techniques to focus on topics arising in incompressible fluids.

Topics of particular interest include: singularity formation, stability and bifurcation; the modeling and analysis of simplified phenomenological models for the description of coherent structures; and time-dependent and steady free boundary problems including water waves, vortex sheets, capillary problems with contact lines and viscous waves with boundary layers.

Qualitative Methods in KPZ Universality
ID
879911
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.

Abstract
The Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) together with the University of South Florida, USA and North-West University, South Africa will jointly organize the 4th International Workshop on Nonlinear and Modern Mathematical Physics (NMMP-2017). This international congress aims to bring together academicians, researchers, and scientists for knowledge sharing in Nonlinear and Modern Mathematical Physics areas. The NMMP-2017 serves as good platforms for the scientific community members to meet with each other for presenting new researches, exchanging information, and discussing current issues. We believe that our future conferences will improve further the development of knowledge in these fields.

MC4BSM17 — MC4BSM 2017 – Monte Carlo for beyond standard model physics
ID
848444
Dates
11 May 2017 - 13 May 2017
Location
Menlo Park, United States
Abstract
MC4BSM is a series of workshops aiming to gather theorists and experimentalists interested in developing Monte Carlo tools to simulate collider signatures of Beyond the Standard Model Physics, and to use such tools in phenomenological studies and in searches for new physics at energy frontier colliders. Since 2006, ten workshops have been held in this series, hosted in the USA, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Korea and China. The focus of MC4BSM 2017 will include: 1) to report new features and new developments of general-purpose Monte Carlo tools; 2) to discuss the experimental needs from the LHC, from dark matter experiments, and from physics studies of future colliders; 3) to offer tutorials to senior PhD students, postdocs, and young faculty interested in using Monte Carlo tools in their research.

NSAatCIRM — Mathematical aspects of the physics with non-self-adjoint operators
ID
870159
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.

Dualities in Superconformal Field Theories
ID
868994
Dates
12 Jun 2017 - 30 Jun 2017
Location
Pollica, NA, Italy
Abstract
Recent years has seen substantial work on superconformal field theories (SCFTs) with 8 or more supercharges (N≥2 in four dimensions) in diverse dimensions. By now a vast set of tools has been developed. These include Seiberg-Witten technology, conformal bootstrap inspired techniques, F/M-theory constructions, BPS quivers and wall-crossing formulas, supersymmetric localization, superconformal indices and partition functions, tt* equations, class S constructions, and ubiquitous supersymmetric dualities. Combining the insights obtained using all these different techniques could be of tremendous help in advancing our systematic understanding of SCFTs with enough supersymmetry. Arguably one of the main impediments is the breadth of the specialties involved. This workshop aims at overcoming this impediment by bringing together researchers from these different communities. Our goal is to explore how these, sometimes orthogonal, pieces of information about SCFTs can be combined to chart out the space of consistent SCFTs and to determine their basic properties. The workshop will be three weeks long. The first two weeks will have a traditional format consisting of a light schedule of talks meant to encourage discussions and interactions between the participants. In the final week we will try something less traditional by devoting the week to collective research.
