06 Dec 2021 - 10 Dec 2021 • Providence, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
Recent progress in the analysis of dispersive PDE's has revealed various aspects of long-time dynamics or behavior of solutions, from the basic three types (scattering, blow-up, and solitons) to more complicated combinations, transitions, and oscillations among them, and so on. The goal of this workshop is for the participants to draw integrated landscapes of those diverse phenomena, aiming towards more a complete description, classification, and prediction of global dynamics, as well as new phenomena and methods.

Flux tubes, Quark Confinement and Exotic Hadrons
18 Jan 2022 - 21 Jan 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Understanding how color is confined in QCD, and the binding of quarks into hadrons, is one of the major unresolved challenges in fundamental physics. The central piece in this puzzle is the chromoelectric flux tube, or confining string, which holds quarks together. In recent years, tantalizing new insights into the dynamical properties of confining strings have been obtained using various theoretical tools such as effective string theory, integrability, the modern S-matrix bootstrap, and gauge/gravity duality. Lattice gauge theory supplies important information about the spectrum of flux tube excitations. Finally, the recent experimental discovery of heavy flavor tetraquarks provides a direct observational probe of flux tube junctions. This conference will bring together experts in these different fields to initiate the exchange of ideas and stimulate future cross-disciplinary developments.

Advancing Quantum Mechanics with Mathematics and Statistics
07 Mar 2022 - 10 Jun 2022 • Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), Los Angeles, United States
Abstract:
The aim of this program is to pave the way towards practical and error-controlled quantum-mechanical calculations with tens of thousands (or even millions) of quantum particles. This IPAM program is based on the premise that by systematically analyzing the structure and topology of Hilbert spaces of different systems and methods, as an interdisciplinary community we can overcome the bottlenecks of existing approximations, and move towards quantum multiscale methods based on Hilbert space embedding, model order reduction, and complementary mathematical and statistical techniques. This program will bring together physicists, mathematicians, chemists, engineers, and computer scientists interested in pushing the boundaries of theory and methods based on quantum mechanics.

Building Bridges: Towards a Unified Picture of Stellar and Black Hole Binary Accretion and Evolution
14 Mar 2022 - 17 Mar 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Binary systems are ubiquitous in nature, from stars to the supermassive black holes expected to reside in galactic nuclei. In many circumstances, the binary system is enveloped by circumbinary gas. How does circumbinary gas evolve and influence the embedded binary? What observational signatures of this gas are most informative? What novel numerical techniques must we deploy to better model these systems? This conference will bring together two distinct communities: those working on massive black hole binaries with those working on stellar binaries. Because recent years have seen remarkable progress in observations of stellar binaries, and numerical modeling of both stars and black holes, now is the ideal time to bring together these two groups. The conference will highlight the remarkable similarities of problems at such varied astrophysical scales, and shed light on the crucial next steps for pushing the boundaries of our knowledge.

Storming the Gravitational Wave Frontier
19 Apr 2022 - 22 Apr 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The detection of gravitational waves by Advanced LIGO/Virgo has opened a new frontier in physics, with impact on areas ranging from field theory through stellar evolution and cosmology. It has also seeded new connections between theoretical communities, especially between field theorists and classical relativists. An even brighter future lies ahead, with more sensitive ground-based detectors and, eventually, a space-based observatory. Current and future experiments demand precision modelling of gravitational-wave signals in order to interpret the strongest gravitational-wave events and to enable sensitive searches for new physics which may be embedded in these signals. The conference will bring together experts from three communities: classical relativity, effective field theory, and scattering amplitudes. Building on the current state of the art, we will discuss the needs of the next generation of gravitational-wave experiments; identify which challenges theory must overcome; highlight recent advances in gravitational wave modelling for more detailed study; and uncover the most promising emerging tools and techniques from classical and quantum field theory for further development.

3rd IMA Conference on Inverse Problems from Theory to Application
03 May 2022 - 05 May 2022 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
Abstract:
Inverse problems are widespread in many varied fields such as medical and satellite imaging, biology, astronomy, geophysics, environmental sciences, computer vision, energy, finance, and defence. These problems are inverse in the sense that they arise from seeking to use a mathematical or physical model “backwards” to indirectly determine a quantity of interest from the effect that this quantity causes on some observed data. A main challenge resulting from using models “backwards” to measure causes from their effects is that solutions are often not well posed, i.e., not unique and/or unstable with respect to small perturbations in the data. This difficulty has stimulated an important amount of research and innovation at the interface of applied mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics, and other fields, leading to great social and economic benefit through impact on science, medicine, and engineering.

Opportunities and Challenges in Few-Body Physics: Unitarity and Beyond
23 May 2022 - 26 May 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
This conference will bring together a diverse set of scientists interested in the broad topic of few-body physics, providing a snapshot of the current status of few-body physics near unitarity, where the two-body scattering length is the largest length scale in the problem. Successes and open challenges in the area of atomic and nuclear physics, which are--despite the vastly different length and energy scales--intimately linked through, e.g., the three-body Efimov effect, will be highlighted. A major objective is to provide a platform for cross-fertilization between theory and experiment as well as between different research areas (such as nuclear, atomic, molecular, condensed matter, high-energy, and mathematical physics), with universality and its implied organizing principles as a unifying connection.

Quantum and Thermal Electrodynamic Fluctuations in the Presence of Matter: Progress and Challenges
11 Jul 2022 - 14 Jul 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
This conference will explore many aspects of classical and quantum fluctuating electromagnetic fields in the presence of matter, which impact a wide range of fundamental and practical phenomena in domains of physics, chemistry end engineering. Building upon the significant milestones achieved in the realms of the Casimir interactions between bodies, and the role of quantum field fluctuations in heat transfer in the near- and far-fields, we plan to address a plethora of novel questions and remaining puzzles: the ramifications of 2D (topological) and non-reciprocal materials, the possibility of detecting quantum friction, the discord between different experimental and theoretical results. Unraveling these puzzles will have profound impacts from fundamental science to novel applications of materials. The conference will bring together theorists and experimentalists who will address unsettled topics and possible new experimental directions that could elucidate them.

Analytic and Geometric Aspects of Gauge Theory (GT)
22 Aug 2022 - 21 Dec 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
The mathematics and physics around gauge theory have, since their first interaction in the mid 1970's, prompted tremendous developments in both mathematics and physics. Deep and fundamental tools in partial differential equations have been developed to provide rigorous foundations for the mathematical study of gauge theories. This led to ongoing revolutions in the understanding of manifolds of dimensions 3 and 4 and presaged the development of symplectic topology. Ideas from quantum field theory have provided deep insights into new directions and conjectures on the structure of gauge theories and suggested many potential applications. The focus of this program will be those parts of gauge theory which hold promise for new applications to geometry and topology and require development of new analytic tools for their study.

Workshop — New four-dimensional gauge theories
24 Oct 2022 - 29 Oct 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Organizer:
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MRSI)
Abstract:
This workshop will bring together researchers working on new four-dimensional gauge theories from the perspectives of differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and physics. Over the last 25 years, physicists have made tantalizing conjectures relating the Vafa–Witten equation to modular forms and the Kapustin–Witten and Haydys–Witten equations to knot theory and the geometric Langlands programme. The analytical challenges in the way of establishing these predictions are now being pursued vigorously. More recently, algebraic geometers have had enormous success in confirming and refining Vafa–Witten's predictions for projective surfaces. The workshop will serve as a platform for reporting on recent progress and exchanging ideas in all of these areas, with the aim of strengthening existing and fostering new interactions.

Gravity from algebra: modern field theory methods for holography
23 Jan 2023 - 26 Jan 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The last several years have seen rapid development of a new language for conformal field theory(CFT), including insights from the conformal bootstrap program. This conference will bring to bear the modern arsenal of conformal field theory on the foundations of holography and quantum gravity. A theme of the conference will be the extent to which consistency conditions on quantum gravity are inherited from those of CFT, and whether they naturally lead to string/M-theory. By bringing together scientists on both sides of holographic duality, we hope to explore these issues in a broad way.Topics to be covered include large N bootstrap and the structure of holographic CFTs dual to general relativity; CFT sum rules and gravitational effective field theory; aspects of supersymmetry in holography; low-dimensional holography, modularity and quantum chaos; black holes from strongly-coupled finite temperature physics; symmetry constraints on gravitational path integrals and AdS vacua; S-matrices, their relation to CFT correlators, and holography away from AdS.

Structure Design and Emerging Phenomena in Nanoparticle Assemblies: What’s next?
15 May 2023 - 18 May 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Nanoparticle assembly is a hierarchical approach to functional materials. It operates at the mesoscale where elementary building blocks still feel their atomic nature and can profit from quantum function but at the same time are flexible enough in shape and interaction to permit high structural complexity. The realization of nanoparticle assemblies requires the convergence of and communication among several scientific disciplines: chemistry for synthesis, materials science for characterization, chemical engineering for up-scaling, and physics for a theoretical description and quantum phenomena. The goal of the conference will be to provide a coherent view of the current state of the field, bringing together researchers with different expertise and background. It should catalyze the development of new methods, both theoretical, computational and experimental, and define the basic science in this field. A focus will be recent developments but also a look forward: What should be the focus for the next decade and beyond? What are they key physics concepts that need to be developed and from where will the new game-changing technological advances emerge?
