Multicomponent and Strongly Correlated Superconductivity

Workshop

17—21 August 2017

Coordinators: Egor Babaev, Vladimir Juričić, Karen Michaeli, Mihail Silaev

www.nordita.org/sc2017

Modern condensed matter systems of interest, including those which display the highest superconducting transition temperatures, tend to exhibit a complex interplay of many-body ordering tendencies with ensuing multicomponent field theories. Understanding the microscopic origin and the phenomenology of such interplay has been among the most active frontiers of research in recent years. A satellite of the 28th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics, LT28, held 9-16 August 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden, this conference will cover a wide range of topics such as superconductivity in iron-pnictides, cuprates, and in materials without inversion symmetry, as well as other systems with unconventional pairing symmetry.

Past Events

2016

Gaia Challenge

Workshop

10—14 October 2016

Coordinators: Malcolm Fairbairn, Mark Gieles, Vincent Henault-Brunet, Daisuke Kawata, Giacomo Monari, Justin Read, Robyn Sanderson, Douglas Spolyar

www.nordita.org/gaiachallenge2016

The aim of the Gaia Challenge is to prepare and discuss the exploitation of Gaia data, the first release of which will be on September 14, 2016. The format is that participants are invited to apply their favorite techniques to mock data in an effort to recover underlying physical quantities, like the gravitational potential and the phase-space structure of stars. However, this year a particular focus will be dedicated to the first data release of Gaia. The mock data will be distributed in advance, and the workshop itself is focused in comparing and discussing results, honing the various techniques, and building collaborations. The Gaia Challenge is part of the Nordita scientific program Dark Matter Distribution in the Era of Gaia.

Foundations of the Theory of Gravitational Waves

Workshop

9—11 October 2016

Coordinators: Marek Abramowicz, Lars Brink, Jean-Pierre Lasota, Juri Poutanen, Stephan Rosswog

www.nordita.org/gw2016

The recent detections by the twin LIGO detectors of gravitational waves is one of the most important events in the history of science. It is therefore not surprising that gravitational waves are today the focus of attention for both the general public and professionals. There were already many events organized where LIGO's experimental results have been discussed, but none focused on the mathematical foundations of the theory behind the discovery. However, LIGO's success is not only a triumph of experimental physics and technology; it is also the culmination of a century of work by theorists on mathematical descriptions of gravitational waves. This three-day event is organized by Nordita and sponsored by Nordita, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences through its Nobel Institute for Physics, the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the Polish Society of Relativity.

Statistical Mechanics of Quantum Dynamics

Workshop

25—28 May 2016

Venue: Mariehamn, Åland

Coordinators: Mikko Alava, Erik Aurell, Ralf Eichhorn, Jukka Pekola

www.nordita.org/sm2016

Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in statistics mechanics aspects of quantum systems that are not covered by the well-developed quantum statistical mechanics. Key motivational questions have been quantum fluctuation relations and the generalization to the quantum domain of key concepts of non-equilibrium thermodynamics such as heat and work, all still actively investigated and where no consensus has been reached. The topic has many potential applications related to optimizing and control of quantum dynamics through interaction with the environment and through measurement. The workshop aims to bring together pioneers and leading researchers active in the field, and is also run as a school aimed at graduate and undergraduate students.

Statistical Mechanics of Forms and Shapes

Workshop

27—30 May 2015

Venue: Mariehamn, Åland

Coordinators: Mikko Alava, Marcelo A. Dias, Ralf Eichhorn, Petia Vlahovska

www.nordita.org/sm2015

Manifestations of patterns such as wrinkles, folds, and singular creases, are ubiquitous mechanical instabilities found in nature and they happen at many different length-scales, from cell membranes to leaves and flowers. The ways materials respond to external forcing, deformation, failure, etc, are intrinsically geometric effects that get transmitted across length scales, from the geometric microstructure to the bulk. The goal of this meeting is to target cutting edge questions on the mechanics of shape formation and response of intrinsically 2-dimensional soft-matter with focus on the question how microstructure architectures may result into macroscopic phenomena that are effectively non-linear and anisotropic responses to external forces and strains.

Chiral Bands in Nuclei

Conference

20—22 April 2015

Coordinators: Ayse Atac Nyberg, Maria Doncel, Roberto Liotta

www.nordita.org/cbn2015

The physics of exotic nuclear shapes, where the nuclear behavior is expected to be significantly altered, presents the possibility of the appearance of chiral bands and its related new physics. Chirality represents a novel feature of rotating triaxial nuclei, in which the chiral symmetry is spontaneously broken in the intrinsic reference frame and is observed in the laboratory frame. During the three days of the Conference we plan to focus on the present theoretical and experimental status regarding chiral bands. We plan also to discuss new observations and theoretical approaches, the interaction between theories and experiments and, last but not least, future collaboration projects.

23—27 March 2015

Coordinators: Dario Benedetti, Astrid Eichhorn, Frank Saueressig

www.nordita.org/spacetime2015

Renormalization group methods are a key element of theoretical particle physics and may also be central for constructing a fundamental theory of gravity, e.g., based on Weinberg’s asymptotic safety conjecture. The aim of this program is to bring together theorists and phenomenologists in order to discuss ideas related to the application of the renormalization group in quantum gravity and the consequences of asymptotic safety for cosmology, black holes and a possible ultraviolet completion of the standard model of particle physics including gravity.

Sunspot formation: theory, simulations and observations

Workshop

9—13 March 2015

Coordinators: Axel Brandenburg, Illa R. Losada, Göran Scharmer, Nishant Singh

www.nordita.org/sunspots2015

Scientific recording of sunspots started with Galileo in 1609. Since Hale (1908) we know that sunspots are strong concentrations of magnetic field of up to 4000 gauss. They could be formed by subsurface magnetic flux tubes piercing the surface. Meanwhile, numerical simulations by many different groups suggest that strong magnetic fields could be generated in the bulk of the convection zone. This would mean that sufficiently strong magnetic fields may be generated not far from the surface. However, at the surface the magnetic field appears to be strongly concentrated into only a few isolated spots - in stark contrast to the more diffuse magnetic field beneath the surface. This is still a mystery.
