CRMPIMS Summer School in Probability
2015
McGill University will host the CRMPIMS probability summer school from June 15July 11, 2015. There will be two main courses, given by Alice Guionnet and Remco van der Hofstad, as well as minicourses by Louigi AddarioBerry, Shankar Bhamidi and Jonathan Mattingly.  Read more

Noncommutative Geometry and Spectral Invariants
This workshop will present a panoramic overview of current trends in noncommutative geometry. World leading experts shall be giving talks related to subjects such as index theory, spectral invariants, and analysis on manifolds with singularities. This will also be the occasion to celebrate the 60th birthday of Professor Georges Skandalis.  Read more

AdS/CFT, selfadjoint extension and the resolution of cosmological singularities
In the context of Einstein gravity coupled to matter satisfying fairly general energy conditions, cosmological singularities are unavoidable, as was proven by Hawking and Penrose many year ago. One of the hopes for superstring theory is that a solution to this problem may be found.  Read more

Beyond integrability: The mathematics and physics of integrability and its breaking in lowdimensional strongly correlated quantum phenomena
Strongly correlated quantum phenomena in low dimensions are particularly challenging to understand. In one and two dimensions strong quantum fluctuations lead the fundamental constituents of matter to organize in novel, often unpredictable ways.  Read more

Positive Grassmannians: Applications to integrable systems and super YangMills scattering amplitudes
The discovery of cluster algebras by Fomin and Zelevinsky was in large part motivated by the study of the phenomenon of total positivity in reductive Lie groups.  Read more

Thematic Semester — June  December 2015
AdS/CFT, holography, integrability
The AntideSitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence has been dominating research in theoretical highenergy physics for the last 15 years. It posits an exact quantum equivalence between string theory as a theory of quantum gravity on negatively curved spacetimes and certain conformal quantum field theories defined on the boundary of these spacetimes.
