What is String Theory? Weaving Perspectives Together
08 Jan 2024 - 19 Apr 2024 • KITP, Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
While it is widely acknowledged that string theory provides a framework for addressing quantum gravitational (and even quantum field theoretic) questions, the precise nature of its organizational principle remains obscure. Nearly three decades ago, when the question “What is string theory?” was asked, the perturbative string worldsheet viewpoint played the starring role. Since then, the discovery of D-branes, string dualities, and the holographic AdS/CFT correspondence has had spacetime dynamics taking center-stage. Much insight has been gleaned from these developments. We now have, for example, a much broader class of string backgrounds with better control over compactifications; strong constraints on the low energy effective field theories; a plethora of gauge-string dualities as well as applications of holographic techniques to a wide class of physical problems; and new angles on semiclassical gravitational physics from a fruitful interplay with quantum information in holography. Together with an influx of new tools and techniques, we have a very rich set of perspectives that illuminate the subject we continue to call string theory. While all these developments are interesting in and of themselves, it is an opportune moment to attempt to synthesize these, often disparate, strands and arrive at a deeper answer to the question in the title.

Workshop ADIW02 — Mathematical and Computational Modelling of Anti-Diffusive Phenomena
25 Mar 2024 - 28 Mar 2024 • Cambridge , United Kingdom
Organizer:
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Anti-diffusive phenomena are the remarkable processes whereby up-gradient transport leads to large-scale structure formation. Such self-organization can occur through coarsening, coalescence, a flux between different scales, or a combination of the above. It is particularly striking in systems which are chaotic or turbulent, where there is no known organizing principle such as minimization of energy or a long-wave instability. From the jets on Jupiter to sand ripples on dunes to drop coalescence, large-scale formation can occur in systems of very different scale and physical origin, including oceanographic and atmospheric flows, magnetically-confined plasmas, and active and multiphase fluids. Despite the ubiquity of the phenomena, many open questions remain: are there universal mechanisms underlying the formation and sustainment of large-scale structures, shared by these systems? Is there a common mathematical characterization? What determines the scale to which the structures grow and their resulting shape? What is the feedback between chaotic fluctuations and the large-scale structure? How do bifurcations between different large-scale structures occur in chaotic systems? How are such transitions affected by internal and external perturbations? If the system is bi-stable, are there universal transition paths in such self-organizing systems? The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts from different fields, working on related phenomena from different perspectives, to shed light on these questions.

Workshop I — Statistical Mechanics and Discrete Geometry
25 Mar 2024 - 29 Mar 2024 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA
Abstract:
Geometric structures associated with bipartite graphs on surfaces have recently emerged and turn out to be crucial for studying a variety of problems. On the one hand, probabilists working in statistical mechanics are interested in finding appropriate embeddings of planar graphs that lead to discrete complex analysis theories, which are well suited for observing conformally invariant objects in the scaling limit. In the course of doing so, they established deep connections between specific immersions of the underlying graphs, integrability of the models, and Harnack curves. On the other hand, several spaces of geometric objects have recently been found to be parametrized by weighted bipartite graphs on surfaces, relating them to cluster algebras and integrable systems. These include objects from discrete differential geometry (e.g. Q-nets, Darboux maps), positive Grassmannians, and higher Teichmüller spaces. Moreover, connections between knot theory and the dimer model have started to emerge and beg for a better understanding.

Workshop — Resurgence and Modularity in QFT and String Theory
08 Apr 2024 - 17 May 2024 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
Modularity is a particularly powerful symmetry with many applications in theoretical physics and mathematics, in particular quantum field theory and string theory. Resurgence is a general framework for advanced asymptotics which effectively unifies perturbative and non-perturbative physics via an intricate network of algebraic relations known as Ecalle’s bridge equations. Modularity and resurgence overlap strongly in the goal of exploring non-perturbative completions of perturbative data, leading to profound new insights into the connection between weak coupling and strong coupling, and in the study of dualities, black holes and quantum gravity. The goal of this GGI Workshop is to bring together experts from these two frontier areas in theoretical and mathematical physics to foster further interaction between different scientific communities and to develop novel strategies to address truly significant problems.

Fundamental Challenges in Theoretical Physics - COST Action Kickoff
13 May 2024 - 15 May 2024 • Padova, Italy
Organizer:
University of Padova (Italy)
Abstract:
Physicists are able to model the world with remarkable accuracy: from the largest cosmological structures to human-scale condensed-matter systems, all the way down to subatomic particles. However, in many cases the mathematical description underlying such systems is so involved that it is only possible to make predictions in an approximation where the interactions are weak. That is, one starts from a free theory and then switches interactions on, order by order in a small parameter. Not only does this strategy fail when applied to strongly-interacting systems, but it also prevents us from answering fundamental questions in theoretical physics. This Action aims at developing a comprehensive approach for studying strongly-interacting systems in classical and quantum physics by exploiting symmetries, dualities, and the internal consistency of the underlying theories. This calls for the cooperation of researchers from different fields, across Europe and beyond. The Action will bring together theoretical and mathematical physicists with expertise in quantum field theory, string theory, gravity, geometry and information theory, establishing the first network of this kind centred around Europe. Such a critical mass will also boost the visibility and impact of European research in theoretical physics. In parallel, this Action will strive to bring cutting-edge research in theoretical physics to the general public and to high-school students in particular. Working with teachers and local public bodies, it will combat long-standing prejudices on physics and research that turn away bright young students, and that in the long run may fuel indifference if not distrust towards science.

Abstract:
Our workshop on Anti-Diffusion in Multiphase and Active Flows will bring together specialists in theory, numerical simulations, and experiments to address questions including: Can we draw quantitative connections between the interfacial properties of turbulent multi-phase fluids and those of active structured fluids that can form phases with orientational order — both polar and nematic — and are important to biological applications? What are the roles of active forces and interface anchoring in renormalizing the interfacial tension and driving coarsening kinetics? Can we identify generic classes of extended systems that organize in nonequilibrium statistically steady states, with both spatial and temporal structure? How can we systematize the study of the statistical properties of particles and fields in multi-phase and active-fluid turbulence?

Bad Honnef Physics School — Integrable Techniques in Theoretical Physics
14 Jul 2024 - 19 Jul 2024 • Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany
Abstract:
This school on Integrability is designed especially for young researchers, including PhD students and PostDocs, who are eager to delve into the fascinating realm of integrability in physics.
Topics:
The analysis of interacting field theories or many-body systems requires in general approximations or numerical simulations. Both methods have their limitation: while the approximative method is directly limited by the validity of the simplifying assumptions, numerical methods can be constrained by the lack of sufficient memory or exponentially increasing computational time with the system size. Furthermore, one needs preexisting, established, and reliable results to contextualize the derived results. Integrable models, which can be solved analytically provide very reliable starting points for not exactly solvable systems. Besides their role as benchmarks, integrable models can also be experimentally realized and thus have a direct application in explaining physical phenomena e.g. ultracold atomic gases in optical lattices. Hence, Integrability has a rich history in physics and boasts wide-ranging applications across scientific disciplines.

Geometry and Physics of Quantum Toroidal Algebra
01 Sep 2024 - 06 Sep 2024 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM)
Abstract:
The theories of rational/trigonometric/elliptic functions were developed as functions over plane/cylinder/torus, respectively, before the 20th century. Among them, the theory of elliptic functions is most interesting, and it can be understood as the parent theory of the rest. During the 20th century, the same rational/trigonometric/elliptic trichotomy has been also found in integrable systems, algebras and cohomology groups. Like the theory of functions, recent development reveals that the relationship among integrable system, algebra, geometry, and physics becomes most profound at elliptic level. In particular, Lie algebras (rational) are promoted to affine Lie algebras (trigonometric) and toroidal Lie algebras (elliptic). The workshop aims at investigating quantum versions of toroidal Lie algebras, called quantum toroidal algebras.

Towards Routine Orbital-free Large-Scale Quantum-Mechanical Modelling of Materials
08 Sep 2024 - 13 Sep 2024 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM)
Abstract:
This symposium brings together mathematicians, computer scientists, chemists and physicist to address a truly multidisciplinary issue of enabling large-scale atomistically-resolved, ab initio materials modeling. Such modeling capabilities are required for understanding and rational design of materials ranging from alloys to solid electrolytes for fuel cells. There is a substantial gap in theory and computing techniques which on one hand would be able to model phenomena intrinsically requiring models with millions of atoms and on the other hand provide accuracy and insight which is today routinely achievable only for unrealistically small model systems . This is a gap between a model and a reality. To bridge it, this symposium makes brains from different research fields pull in one direction. Progress that this symposium will help accelerate will mean better computational support for the development of functional materials, with more of the development moved from time-, manpower-, and $-costly lab experimentation to in-silico design.

Nonlocal Problems in Mathematical Physics, Analysis and Geometry
15 Sep 2024 - 20 Sep 2024 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM)
Abstract:
Nonlinear problems are problems which solutions satisfy an equation where the different physical constants involved are depending on the solution itself. This dependence can be nonlocal in the sense that it depends on the solution globally. For instance the motion of a population can be influenced by the total population and not only by the population very locally. One of the goals of the workshop is to deepen the human knowledge in this field applied to different situations.

07 Oct 2024 - 01 Nov 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
Effective field theory (EFT) is a powerful tool for describing the physics of systems at different energy scales. In the context of colliders and gravitational waves, EFTs together with multi-loop precision computation techniques play an essential role in creating precise theoretical predictions that can be compared with empirical data. Recently it has become evident that similar methods and computational tools can be successfully applied to the seemingly different fields of collider and gravitational wave physics. This workshop will bring together experts to discuss the latest developments in theory and phenomenology.
Topics:
Resummation for the LHC: precision frontier, new structures, and jet processes; EFT tools for fixed order calculations; Factorization theorems at leading and subleading power; EFTs and expansions for gravitational wave astronomy; Scattering amplitudes in the classical regime; Multi-loop integrals for gravitational physics.
