BKK2017DSCR — Bangkok Workshop on Discrete Geometry and Statistics
ID
826656
Dates
30 Jan 2017 - 03 Feb 2017
Location
Bangkok, Thailand
Abstract
The workshop will focus on mathematical statistical physics of discrete systems, and in particular its applications to random geometries, as well as a few other related research directions. Real-life motivations for such studies range from attempts to quantize gravity to problems in condensed matter physics to mathematical modelling of cooperative phenomena in macroscopic communities. Some concrete directions include: 1) Discrete random geometries with applications to gravity quantization, 2) Discrete mathematical models in equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics (the Ising model and its relatives, percolation, lattice gases, etc), 3) Random matrix and tensor models, 4) Random graphs and dynamics of complex networks, 5) Topics in lattice gauge theory (especially with emphasis on analytic approaches), 6) Conformal field theories (especially with connections to the above subjects), 7) Miscellaneous discrete aspects of dynamical evolution (cellular automata, time-periodic structures, etc).

ICERM Semester Program on Singularities and Waves In Incompressible Fluids
ID
734356
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.

COLLABOR8.1
ID
858331
Start date
09 Feb 2017
Location
Nottingham, United Kingdom
Abstract
Collabor8.1 is an exciting meeting for early career researchers (PhD students and young postdocs) in theoretical and mathematical physics, with a focus on fostering collaboration. Instead of presenting final results, the participants are encouraged to give a short talk about open problems they encountered during their research. After each talk session all participants come together in smaller groups to discuss those problems. The participants will benefit from new ideas about their research, and expand their network for future collaboration.

In addition, there will also be a guest seminar by Prof. David Tong (DAMTP, University of Cambridge). Prof. Tong has collaborated with more than 50 mathematicians and physicists in a distinguished career.

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
870115
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
868961
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.

ICCA11 — 11th International Conference on Clifford Algebras and Their Applications in Mathematical Physics
ID
820056
Dates
07 Aug 2017 - 11 Aug 2017
Location
Ghent, Belgium
Abstract
The ICCA series is traditionally dedicated to the study of Clifford algebra and its applications in geometry, mathematical analysis, mathematical and theoretical physics and mechanical and electrical engineering. Over the years, it has further broadened and diversified its scope to include a.o. numerical analysis, integral transforms, signal processing, group representation theory, Lie (super)algebras, … . Moreover Clifford algebra has shown to be a highly efficient and powerful language for tackling problems in control engineering, signal processing, robotics, geographic information systems (GIS), cosmology, virtual reality, 3D camera optics, medical imaging, and neural computation. The ICCA conferences have a strong interdisciplinary character. They aim at bringing together experts and young researchers from various fields encouraging interdisciplinary interactions.
