correl19 — Autumn School on Correlated Electrons: Many-Body Methods for Real Materials
16 Sep 2019 - 20 Sep 2019 • Jülich, Germany
Abstract:
Emergent many-body phenomena are at the core of the exciting properties of strongly correlated materials. Understanding them requires confronting the many-body problem. While, at first, this appears to be an impossible task, substantial progress has been made by combining physical insights with modern numerical approaches. A successful strategy is to devise methods that use the understanding gained from simple models for the construction of physically motivated wave-functions. Results for the ground state of real materials can then be obtained by optimizing them via deterministic or stochastic algorithms. The methods of choice for determining spectra are instead based on Green functions. The key idea is to map the complex realistic many-body Hamiltonian to a simpler auxiliary model that can be solved numerically.

Lecture — Christmas Lecture: The Physics of a Youth Hostel
17 Dec 2019 • Sarum College, Salisbury, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Physics – IOP
Abstract:
In my volunteer role as manager of a youth hostel in remote Welsh mountainous terrain, I’ve needed to apply physics to provide the services expected by today’s visitors. There’s no mains water, no landline phone, and no mobile phone signal. Our organisation also has a second hostel which has no mains electricity. The hostels are looked after by a different volunteer warden each week, while I’m 200 miles away in Wiltshire. Everything must be sufficiently reliable to function under those challenging conditions.

Particle growth in turbulence
18 May 2020 - 12 Jun 2020 • Stockholm, Sweden
Organizer:
Nordita - Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
The question of how particles and droplets can grow in a turbulent environment is of great current interest in many fields, in astrophysics, cloud microphysics, in biology, and in the engineering sciences. For example, coagulation and condensation in turbulent clouds turn microscopic cloud droplets into rain drops. In astrophysics, planetesimals are thought to form by aggregation of microscopic dust grains in the turbulent environment surrounding a forming star. In both cases, turbulence is believed to be a crucial factor for particle growth. Yet the microscopic mechanisms determining this growth are far from understood. In the past few years there has been substantial progress in understanding the mechanisms that determine how particles move in turbulence, albeit mostly for simplified model systems. The challenge is now to understand how these mechanisms lead to rapid particle growth.

Graduate Summer School: Mathematics of Topological Phases of Matter
22 Jun 2020 - 26 Jun 2020 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Abstract:
The application of topology to physics has become an integral part of a second quantum revolution in the sciences. The discovery of topological insulators and progress towards topological superconductors realizing non-abelian statistics has moved topological phases of matter onto the center stage in the interaction of topology and physics beyond the quantum Hall effect. While topological physics has been intensively investigated by physicists for the last few decades, the mathematical theory lags far behind. One challenge is formulating the right definition of topological phases of matter, which is closely related to the notoriously difficult problem of finding a rigorous mathematical formulation of quantum field theory. In this summer school, we will focus on two relatively mature foundational topics, and two new directions in the mathematics of topological phases of matter.
