MITP Summer School 2020 "Scattering Amplitudes"
12 Jul 2021 - 30 Jul 2021 • Mainz, Germany
Abstract:
The Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics will host a 2020 summer school for Ph.D. students in theoretical physics, the fifth of an annual series. The main theme of the school is "Scattering Amplitudes", ranging from recent new formal developments to precision calculations. Topics include lectures on the geometry of scattering amplitudes, on mathematical functions associated to loop amplitudes, on phenomenological applications in jet physics and on applications in perturbative gravity. The aim of the school is thus to provide a concise overview of the most important theory tools to carry out innovative research in the field of scattering amplitudes.

Bad Honnef Physics School — Methods of Effective Field Theory and Lattice Field Theory
12 Jul 2021 - 30 Jul 2021 • Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany

International Physics School on Muon Dipole Moments and Hadronic Effects
29 Aug 2021 - 03 Sep 2021 • Mainz, Germany
Abstract:
This school is intended for young researchers (master students, PhD students and young postdocs) involved in the global effort of investigating the large excess of the measured value of the muon anomalous magnetic moment over the Standard Model prediction. The lecture schedule will be complemented by dedicated sessions for discussions, exercises and posters along with social activities to encourage networking and a vivid exchange of ideas.

DPG-Tagung der Sektion Materie und Kosmos
30 Aug 2021 - 03 Sep 2021 • Friedrich-Schiller Universität Jena, Germany
Organizer:
DPG Sektion Materie und Kosmos (SmuK)
Abstract:
Jedes Jahr veranstaltet die DPG-(Frühjahrs)Tagungen an wechselnden Orten und Universitäten in Deutschland. Mit jährlich über 10.000 Teilnehmenden aus dem In- und Ausland gehören die DPG-(Frühjahrs)Tagungen regelmäßig zu den größten Physikkongressen Europas. Kernanliegen der DPG sind dabei der Wissenstransfer und die Nachwuchsförderung. Die DPG-(Frühjahrs)Tagungen sind deshalb auch eine wichtige Plattform für Studierende, auf der sie erstmals ihre Master- oder Diplomarbeitsthemen vortragen und mit Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern diskutieren können. Die umfassende Aufnahme von Vorträgen des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses in das Tagungsprogramm ist ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal der DPG-(Frühjahrs)Tagungen auch im internationalen Maßstab.

Mathematical Foundations of the Swampland Program
13 Sep 2021 - 24 Sep 2021 • Mainz, Germany
Organizer:
Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics, Johannes Gutenberg University
Abstract:
Recently, there has been great interest in determining criteria which differentiate between effective low-energy field theories which can be consistently completed in the ultraviolet into quantum gravity, said to be in the ‘Landscape’, from theories which appear consistent but nonetheless defy such a coupling to quantum gravity, the so-called ‘Swampland’. A number of such criteria, or Swampland Conjectures, have been proposed in the literature and attracted considerable interest in the high energy physics community. If confirmed, they have far-reaching consequences for physics and cosmology, such as for the structure of large field inflation in early time cosmology or for the mechanism responsible for the observed late-time acceleration of the universe, to name but the most striking ones. On the other hand, the Swampland Conjectures translate, in the context of string theory, into conjectures regarding the structure of possible compactifications, or string geometries. String theory is therefore in a unique position to quantitatively test - and possibly refine - such general Swampland Conjectures. This Scientific Program proposes to study these intriguing connections between general properties of quantum gravity and the geometry of string compactifications. It aims to bring together world experts working at the forefront of research in string theory, field theoretic aspects of quantum gravity, and geometry at this unique time in which our understanding of the Swampland is quickly evolving.

Quantum Field Theory at the Boundary
27 Sep 2021 - 08 Oct 2021 • Mainz, Germany
Organizer:
Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics, Johannes Gutenberg University
Abstract:
Boundaries and defects have been at the heart of crucial developments in theoretical physics in the last 20 years: holography (field theories could live at the boundary of a higher- dimensional gravitational theory), entanglement (the entangling surface can be treated as a defect), black holes (the horizon is a boundary), topological insulators and semi-metals (the topologically-protected massless modes live at the boundary), and non-local operators such as Wilson and ‘t Hooft lines (defects defined by appropriate boundary conditions). Additionally, many other areas have made major advances in recent years whose implications for quantum field theory with boundaries and defects have yet to be explored fully: the conformal bootstrap, dualities among (2+1)d quantum field theories, supersymmetric localization, integrability, and so on. However, progress in these areas has largely been carried out by separated communities working in isolation from the others. This scientific program thus aims to bring together a diverse group of leading theorists interested in boundaries and defects in quantum field theory, from the formal/mathematical to the applied, to forge collaborations between different areas, identify common subjects and complementary approaches, and set the agenda for future developments and new applications.
Topics:
The three broad focus areas will be: Conformal field theories with boundaries and defects Supersymmetry and Duality with boundaries and defects Curved space, gravity and entanglement
