The Analysis and Geometry of Random Spaces
18 Jan 2022 - 27 May 2022 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
This program is devoted to the investigation of universal analytic and geometric objects that arise from natural probabilistic constructions, often motivated by models in mathematical physics. Prominent examples for recent developments are the Schramm-Loewner evolution, the continuum random tree, Bernoulli percolation on the integers, random surfaces produced by Liouville Quantum Gravity, and Jordan curves and dendrites obtained from random conformal weldings and laminations. The lack of regularity of these random structures often results in a failure of classical methods of analysis. One goal of this program is to enrich the analytic toolbox to better handle these rough structures.

TDV — Topological Data Visualization Workshop
16 May 2022 - 20 May 2022 • Iowa City, United States
Organizer:
University of Iowa, Department of Mathematics
Abstract:
Some datasets are too small for standard statistical/data analysis to accurately characterize the data. Others are extremely large and data size reduction methods may be needed. One solution is to use topological data analysis to simplify and/or visualize data. This workshop will include both tutorials and research talks on topological techniques for visualizing data.
Topics:
topological data analysis, TDA mapper, computational topology, persistent homology

Texas A&M Workshop in Analysis and Probability: Geometry and Analysis on Nonsmooth Spaces
08 Aug 2022 - 12 Aug 2022 • College Station, TX, United States
Organizer:
Texas A&M University, College Station, TX
Abstract:
The goal of this in-person conference is to bring together researchers studying nonsmooth spaces from different perspectives, facilitating the exchange of ideas, problems, and mathematical techniques. Perspectives coming from probability, analysis on metric spaces, and Banach space theory are of particular emphasis. Interactions among these different fields have already proven exceptionally fruitful. For example, a famous fractal space constructed by Laakso to answer a purely metric measure theoretic question inspired a similar construction (pictured above) eventually used to characterize superreflexivity in Banach spaces. Later, uniform q-convexity, a quantitative refinement of superreflexivity, was metrically characterizing using Markov convexity – a measurement of the diffusivity of Markov processes in a metric space. Together with many more examples, these show how shared geometric objects play important roles in each subject while being viewed through different lenses. More interactions of this type will be necessary to solve important open problems, such as analyst’s traveling salesman-type problems and metric characterizations of other Banach properties.

Generalized Global Symmetries, Quantum Field Theory, and Geometry
19 Sep 2022 - 23 Sep 2022 • New York, United States
Organizer:
The Simons SCGP-Workshops---21_webCenter for Geometry and Physics, Stony Brook University
Abstract:
Over the past ten years tremendous progress has been achieved in quantum field theory thanks to the realization that symmetries can be interpreted in terms of the action of topological defects on the space of operators. This gives a generalization of the notion of symmetries, explicitly realized in many instances exploiting Lagrangian field theory techniques, uncovering a rich and unexpected landscape of physical effects. The product rules for symmetry defects are organized by higher structures, and moreover examples of non-invertible symmetry defects have been found, indicating that global symmetries are categorical. Thanks to geometric field theory methods in string theory, an understanding of generalized global symmetries for field theories without a conventional Lagrangian formulation is at reach in terms of appropriate defect groups, determined exploiting the dynamics of membranes in the string theory realization.

Topology, Symmetry and Interactions in Crystals: Emerging Concepts and Unifying Themes
03 Apr 2023 - 06 Apr 2023 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Recent developments in several disparate areas make it a pressing and opportune time to confront the interplay between topology, symmetry and interactions. This conference will catalyze the discussion on this broad topic by highlighting a burst of recent advancements, both theoretical and experimental, along this direction. An important goal is to enhance cross-talk between the weakly and strongly correlated communities interested in topology that have not yet had adequate interactions with each other. The conference will bring participants up to speed in this rapidly growing field and sharpen the central questions that will be discussed in the remainder of the associated program.

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?
