The 30th International Colloquium on Group Theoretical Methods in Physics

Jul 14 2014 - 09:00
Jul 18 2014 - 18:00
Short description of the event: 

The ICGTPM series is traditionally dedicated to the application of symmetry and group theoretical methods in physics, chemistry and mathematics, and to the development of mathematical tools and theories for progress in group theory and symmetries. Over the years, it has further broadened and diversified due to the successful application of group theoretical, geometric and algebraic methods in life sciences and other areas.

More than 40 years ago the first colloquium in this series was held in Nijmegen. It initiated a series of annual meetings intended to provide a common forum for scientists interested in group theoretical methods. At that time, most of the participants belonged to two important communities: on the one hand, solid state specialists, elementary particle theorists and phenomenologists, and on the other, mathematicians eager to apply newly-discovered group and algebraic structures.

Short description of the event: 

The aim of this permanent school is to introduce undergraduate and Ph.D. students in mathematics and physics as well as post-doctoral researchers in a specific area of mathematics and theoretical physics: Secondary Calculus. A diffiety is a geometrical object that properly formalizes the concept of the solution space of a given system of (nonlinear) PDEs, much as an algebraic variety does with respect to solutions of a given system of algebraic equations.

Aug 14 2014 - 12:30

Leibniz Universität Hannover

Short description of the event: 

Yang-Mills theory was formulated in 1954 and became an essential ingredient in the Standard Model of particle physics in the 1970s. At the end of that decade, important solutions to the Yang-Mills equations (monopoles, instantons) were discovered in physics and their moduli spaces were constructed in mathematics. These seminal studies took place on four-dimensional (space-time) manifolds.

Integrability and Cluster Algebras: Geometry and Combinatorics

Aug 25 2014 - 00:00

Brown University (ICERM), Providence, RI - US


Integrability and Cluster Algebras: Geometry and Combinatorics

Short description of the event: 

This workshop focuses on certain kinds of discrete dynamical systems that are integrable and have interpretations in terms of cluster algebras. Some such systems, like the pentagram map and the octahedral recurrence, are motivated by concrete algebraic constructions (taking determinants) or geometric constructions based on specific configurations of points and lines in the projective plane. The systems of interest in this workshop have connections to Poisson and symplectic geometry, classical integrable PDE such as the KdV and Boussinesq equations and also to cluster algebras.
