In view of the remarkable advances that are taking place in mathematical physics and of their striking impact on mathematics and physics, it was decided to devote the 1999-2000 theme activities at the CRM to this area.
The plan is to have a broad coverage with a wide range of activities: an extended program on quantum integrability, various workshops, mini-courses, etc.

Table of Contents

o Summer Schools

o Aisenstadt Chair Lecture Series

o Workshops

o Concentration Period

Quantum Integrability 2000
April 2 - June 11, 2000

The CRM will host a semester-long concentration period with several specialists in residence. The program is organized around two 4-week periods described below and a workshop.

Philippe Di Francesco (North Carolina), André LeClair (Cornell), Nicolai Reshetikhin (Berkeley), Hubert Saleur (USC)

o Mini-courses

Several mini-courses are planned during the year to prepare graduate students for the workshops and the concentration period.

Orthogonal polynomials and Random Matrices: A Riemann-Hilbert approach

L'intégrabilité des systèmes discrets, avec les applications aux équations de Yang-Baxter

Mathematical foundations of second quantization

Isomonodromic deformations and twistor geometry

Selected Topics in Mathematical Physics: Random Matrices

Random Schrödinger operators
