Top Quark Physics - Professor F. The goal of this GGI activity is to bring together theoreticians of different backgrounds, in condensed matter, high energy and mathematical physics, with the belief that interdisciplinary approaches can lead to substantial progress in many directions. PANIC consists of plenary talks and a number of parallel sessions. The scientific program addresses a broad range of topics at the interface between particle, nuclear and astrophysics. As in previous years, the IWARA meeting sessions will consist of invited and contributed talks, poster sessions.
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. 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. As it enters a new phase of extended data accumulation, two broad challenges emerge: how to fulfill the potential for percent-level precision with the large dataset, and how to maximise the information that can be extracted from each event about the underlying scattering process, in particular with machine learning.
Solving these problems will have an impact across a wide range of physics topics: establishing the properties of the newly discovered interactions of the Higgs sector and understanding electroweak symmetry breaking, enhancing the sensitivity of searches for physics beyond the Standard Model BSM , and precision measurements of a range of fundamental parameters in the Standard Model.

Browse by subject. The origin of dark matter DM is among the most urgent questions in fundamental physics, as astronomical observations do not inform us directly about its particle nature. The proposed workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalists to explore new theoretical avenues and detection strategies. During the workshop we will focus on well-motivated and long-standing theories of DM, such as WIMPs and axions, and we will assess the status of fast-moving current searches.
There will also be extensive discussions about new ideas for discovering DM through direct detection, indirect detection, collider production, and cosmological observations. Finally, we will explore dark-sector extensions of the standard model, which can yield distinctive cosmological and astrophysical signals, as well as exotic events at colliders.
Week 1: New theories and the dark matter mass landscape, Week 2: Direct searches, Week 3: Indirect and astrophysical probes, Week 4: Searches at accelerators, Week 5: One week conference covering the themes of the workshop, Week 6: Axions and ALPs, Week 7: Primordial black holes dark matter and gravitational waves.

Mathematical Physics. Event website:. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together experts and young researchers in the areas of nuclear, particle and astro-physics as well as cosmology and the pertinent interrelations among these fields. The aim is to discuss the current status of the field and to explore future directions, both in experiment and theory. With the recent observation of gravitational-wave signals of black-hole and neutron-star mergers - for the latter in coincidence with electromagnetic signals -, the meeting is particularly timely.
The aim is to cover a broad range of topics to elucidate synergies and identify areas of future progress. This should be especially beneficial to the younger participants of the meeting.

COOL The workshop will be focused on the various aspects of the cooling methods and technics of charged particles. Particle Accelerators. Challenges in Theoretical High-Energy Physics. Along with the direct searches of new particles at the LHC, low-energy phenomenology offers many complementary ways to search for physics beyond the Standard Model. The low-energy searches, however, are often hindered by the insufficiently precise knowledge of hadronic contributions. The last decade has witnessed tremendous progress towards ab-initio and model-independent determinations of these contributions.
The purpose of this meeting is to cross-examine the empirical and theoretical progress in this field and the implications in beyond-the-SM physics. Nuclear Physics. Problems of Theoretical and Mathematical Physics. Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics. The Conference is dedicated to the th anniversary of the outstanding theoretician in the physical sciences and mathematician M. Bogolyubov Quantum fields, knots, and strings. This conference is devoted to relations between quantum field theory and string theory one hand, and mathematical knot theory and random matrix models on the other hand.
Surprising connections between these areas of research have been found in last years. In the conference we will summarize important recent developments in this context and try to set the goals for the future research. Topics considered in the conference include: supersymmetric gauge theories, BPS states, topological string theory, integrability, homological knot invariants, matrix models, topological recursion.

The Swampland program gives general constraints on effective theories to be compatible with quantum gravity, which defines the Landscape of consistent theories, and is quickly gaining command of the fundamental understanding of open questions in particle physics and cosmology, ranging from the hierarchy of fundamental scales in nature, to the origin and final fate of the universe. Current research surfs over several powerful conjectures, whose riptide deposits valuable implications on the structure of effective theories, their spectrum of particles, their moduli spaces and potentials.

Time is ripe to navigate the swampland, collecting these results and conjectures, and weaving them up to unveil fundamental structures in quantum gravitational theories. This workshop plans to gather the leading experts in the field to review our knowledge on the Swampland extension, the underlying related fundamental questions within quantum gravity and string theory as well as possible constraints for particle physics and cosmology. TF — Dirac operators in differential geometry and global analysis.
Conference in memory of Thomas Friedrich The mathematical problem we plan to tackle takes its source in questions concerning graphene and the estimate of energy gaps. The model we study is a two dimensional massless Dirac operator on a regular bounded domain. We are interested in estimating the asymptotic of the gap at zero. More precisely, we want to derive the asymptotics for large magnetic field of the first negative eigenvalue and the first positive eigenvalue. Mini Workshop — Beyond the Standard Model: historical-critical perspectives. The workshop aims at approaching the present situation from a historical-critical perspective, contextualizing and questioning the developments of earlier decades, both to understand better their past and present scope, and to provide new material for reflections on contemporary physical research.

The interplay of experimental results and BSM model-building. FHEP aims to review and discuss recent progress in particle physics and cosmology bringing together researcher to report and discuss the latest scenario in the field and what might show up in the next few years. Topics include new physics from colliders, gravitational waves, dark matter, non-accelerator probes of new physics, neutrinos, flavor physics and new results in cosmology.
The symposium aims at bringing together experts on the topics of variational and nonperturbative methods in quantum field theory, topological and conformal field theory, and quantum entanglement in QFT. Those topics have recently experienced a revival of interest due to advances made in the field of quantum computing and quantum entanglement theory. Area laws and entanglement Hamiltonians have opened up a new window into the structure of quantum correlations in strongly correlated systems, and led to a revisit of the variational principle for quantum field theories in the form of quantum tensor networks.
Dualities, as symbolized in the picture of Magritte above, and nonlocal symmetries are proving to be manifestations of emerging order in the entanglement structure, and tensor networks provide representations for the underlying tensor fusion categories. The main purpose of this conference is to bring together the different communities that have been working on the many theoretical aspects of this program. This meeting is the 7th thematic workshop on Baryon and Lepton Number Violation that takes place every two years.
