Modern challenges in continuum mechanics
ID
870298
Dates
03 Apr 2017 - 06 Apr 2017
Location
Zagreb, Croatia
Abstract
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working in related fields of continuum mechanics: fluid mechanics, elasticity, FSI problems, multi-component mixtures, scaling laws, etc. Program of the workshop will include mini-courses, invited talks and short oral poster presentations intended for young researchers. The workshop is organized in course of the project "Mathematical Analysis of Multi-Physics Problems Involving Thin and Composite Structures and Fluids" (www.fer.unizg.hr/mampit), under auspices of the Croatian Science Foundation (HRZZ) and Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts (HAZU).

Qualitative Methods in KPZ Universality
ID
879944
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.

Conference on Classical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics: Modeling, Reduction, and Simulation
ID
881183
Dates
26 Jun 2017 - 28 Jun 2017
Location
Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, United States
Abstract
This conference will bring together applied mathematicians at various stages of their careers as well as leading engineers and geophysicists. The goal is to exchange experiences and ideas necessary for the development of novel strategies to tackle challenging turbulent flows arising in engineering and geophysical fluid dynamics. These strategies will include effective analytic and data-driven dimension reduction that is essential for the mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of these turbulent flows. A partial list of topics that we intend to cover at the conference includes: modeling of turbulent flows in climate and engineering applications, state-of-the-art reduced order modeling techniques and stochastic parameterization techniques, the associated numerical implementations, and usage in different contexts such as flow control, instabilities, bifurcation analysis and transition to turbulence, predictability and prediction, and uncertainty quantification.

FQMT'17 — Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics 2017
ID
798641
Dates
09 Jul 2017 - 15 Jul 2017
Location
Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract
The conference will address non-equilibrium statistical physics, quantum many body physics, foundations of quantum physics and quantum thermodynamics. The systems considered will be mainly on the order of mesoscopic (nanoscale) size, and include those of both natural and artificial origin. The main goal of the conference is to contribute to a better understanding of the behavior of mesoscopic systems, and to provide insight into the problems of the foundations, relying on the theoretical and experimental methods of condensed matter physics and quantum optics. Special attention will be given to non-equilibrium quantum systems, physics of quantum information and manifestation of quantum effects in biological systems, in terms of both theory and experiment. Subjects from astrophysics, gravitation or cosmology related to the above scope will also be included.
