Long Program — Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy
13 Sep 2021 - 17 Dec 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Organizer:
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA
Abstract:
The aim of this program is to connect efforts of the mathematical and physical sciences communities to address the latest advances and new challenges on the understanding of multi-messenger astronomy. The IPAM program will comprise four workshops, each addressing a different topic: the generation of catalogs of waveform templates; the discussion of the mathematical modeling of the equations governing strong relativistic systems; parameter estimation of astrophysical sources of gravitational waves; and the state of the art of big data and deep learning techniques for GW data analysis.

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.

Snowmass Theory Frontier Conference
23 Feb 2022 - 25 Feb 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
A meeting of the Theory Frontier of the Particle Physics Community Planning Exercise (``Snowmass’’), this KITP Conference aims to articulate the recent advances and future opportunities in all aspects of theory relevant to High Energy Physics (HEP) including particle theory, formal/string theory, cosmological and astro-particle theory, and quantum information science. Open to all members of the HEP theory community, this meeting will also provide an opportunity to cultivate interactions between theorists working across all frontiers of Snowmass.

Talking Integrability: Spins, Fields, and Strings
29 Aug 2022 - 01 Sep 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The aim of this conference is to provide a survey of the most recent advances in the study of integrable models coming from the fields of mathematical physics, condensed-matter physics and string theory. Topics will include integrable deformations of CFTs and IQFTs, integrable spin-chains and their non-equilibrium dynamics, integrable structures on the string worldsheet, in AdS(d+1)/CFT(d) and, in the case of d=2, their relation to the CFT(2) structures. In view of the large number of recent developments and of the relative fragmentation of the community, the conference will strive to bring together researchers from across all fields and offer a pedagogical bird's-eye view of the field, suitable for integrability practitioners of all backgrounds.

Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum Systems: Advances and Applications
12 Sep 2022 - 15 Sep 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The goal of this conference is to explore connections between many-body quantum dynamics, quantum complexity theory, and the use and validation of noisy, intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) devices. Key topic areas for this conference include (i) novel dynamical regimes and phases in quantum circuits, (ii) quantum simulation, error mitigation, and validation of NISQ devices, and (iii) quantum optimization algorithms and quantum many-body physics. The conference will provide a key opportunity for a targeted evaluation of productive areas for cross-collaboration for scientists in quantum information science, computer science, and condensed-matter physics.
