Model and Material Advances in Multicomponent Correlated Systems
12 Oct 2020 - 16 Oct 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
In the last decade a number of experimental and theoretical discoveries have caused a notable revival of interest in systems with large local Hilbert spaces which realize a variety of intriguing and largely unexplored phenomena such as non-Fermi-liquid behavior, exotic quantum criticality, orbitally selective Mott physics, multipolar/hidden orders and more. While many models have been proposed for each of these phenomena, a single framework to understand the systems with multiple degrees of freedom and, consequently, richer order parameters and richer quasiparticles, is missing.

Quantum Thermodynamics of Non-equilibrium Systems
13 Oct 2020 - 16 Oct 2020 • Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain
Abstract:
The workshop will focus on new developments in the understanding of quantum thermodynamics in non-equilibrium systems, with emphasis on the meso- and nanoscopic scale. Special attention will go to possible implementations of proof-of-principle experiments of systems working in the quantum regime. We intend to bring together experts and younger researchers in the field of non-equilibrium quantum thermodynamics so as to stimulate exchange and discussions about the newest topics in the field. Therefore, besides the invited talks, we plan slots for contributed talks, a poster session and time for discussion. We hope the conference will lead to new collaborations, and that it will contribute to the progress of the field through the interchange of information and new ideas.

The Physics of Modularity
01 Dec 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Modularity is at the heart of many deep results in mathematics--from the proof of Fermat’s last theorem to moonshine to the Langlands correspondence. At the same time, modular group representations and automorphic forms underlie many interesting physical phenomena in quantum field theory and string theory, including understanding of dualities, boundary conditions, and supersymmetric black holes, among other things. This conference will bring together physicists and mathematicians to discuss emerging connections between a web of fundamental objects in physics and mathematics, united in the crucial role played by modularity.
Topics:
new moonshines and mock modular forms; vertex operator algebras arising in supersymmetric gauge theories; topological invariants of 3- and 4-manifolds; topological QFTs and topological phases in condensed matter physics; topological string theory, Donaldson-Thomas theory, and enumerative geometry; scattering amplitudes in string theory; 2d conformal field theories, the modular bootstrap, and connections to 3d quantum gravity

51st IFF Spring School — IFF spring school 2021: Quantum Technology
01 Mar 2021 - 12 Mar 2021 • Jülich, Germany
Abstract:
Based on quantum coherence, data can be protected in a completely secure way that makes eavesdropping impossible. Given the explosive growth of cybercrime and espionage, this is a highly strategic capability. Quantum technologies will also give rise to simulation techniques well beyond current capabilities for material and chemical synthesis, and to clocks and sensors with unprecedented sensitivity and accuracy, with potential impact for navigation, the synchronisation of future smart networks and medical diagnostics.

Abstract:
QENS focusses on the discussion and exchange of scientific ideas related to the investigation of atomic and molecular motions, while WINS deals with instrumental aspects of quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering techniques. Though originally QENS and WINS were held in an independent way, the added value of their joint celebration has been put forward since it enhances their scope and impact on the scientific community related with the quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering techniques. Young scientists involved in neutron scattering investigations can particularly profit from this joint event (and are especially welcome).

Quantum Foundations, Gravity, and Causal Order
30 May 2021 - 04 Jun 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
New experiments are challenging our conventional understanding of past, present, and future in the quantum world. This workshop will, therefore, explore the very foundations of our understanding of space, time, and gravity by looking at new mathematical concepts and methods related to the quantum processes of measuring location, orientation, speed, cause and effect. We expect to forge a path that blends together new ideas on how our description of the structure of space and time must be modified to fully understand how to combine gravity with quantum physics.

Entangled Quantum States of Matter: Classification, Creation, Manipulation, Detection
21 Jun 2021 - 24 Jun 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
This conference will explore many aspects of entangled quantum states of matter, with an eye towards their eventual experimental realization. These include non-Fermi liquids, symmetry-protected topological states, and topologically-ordered quantum matter such as gapped and gapless quantum spin liquids. Some of these states harbor nontrivial boundary or edge modes which will also be highlighted. Different topics will be covered including: the classification of entangled topological states which provide a roadmap of what is possible; investigations on how to engineer models built with realistic ingredients guided by theoretical explorations of their phase diagrams; and proposals for the right observables to detect and manipulate these states which can bring them closer from an abstract idea to reality. This conference will bring together experts on many aspects of highly-entangled quantum matter and help connect experts on mathematical aspects of classification and those with numerical expertise that provide information on phase diagrams with experimentalists striving to engineer these states in the lab.

FQMT'21 — Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics 2021
18 Jul 2021 - 24 Jul 2021 • Prague, Czech Republic
Organizer:
Institute of Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences
Abstract:
The main goal of the conference is to contribute to a better understanding of the behavior of quantum systems out of equilibrium. To reach this aim we also need to improve our knowledge of systems in equilibrium and steady state situations. The conference will thus address foundations of quantum physics, quantum many body physics, statistical physics, and thermodynamics relying on the theoretical and experimental methods of condensed matter physics and quantum optics. The systems considered will be mainly on the order of mesoscopic (nanoscale) size, and include those of both natural and artificial origin. Special attention will be given to non-equilibrium quantum systems, physics of quantum information and manifestation of quantum effects in biological systems. Subjects from astrophysics, gravitation or cosmology related to the above scope will also be included.
