SISSA colloquium

Title: The Infinity Puzzle: From Abdus Salam to the Higgs Boson

Frank Close will charts a 50 year quest for the theory uniting the electromagnetic and weak forces - from Abdus Salam and John Ward's early efforts to the discovery of the Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider.

Vector Bundles on Algebraic Curves 2013

A major recent breakthrough in the field of applications of algebraic geometry to theoretical physics has been the discovery of a deep relation between Nekrasov's partition function, and the conformal blocks a quantum conformal field theory --- the so called Alday-Gaiotto-Tachikawa conjecture. This workshop aims at providing an updated survey of the state of the art in this area of research, in its various

Evolution Problems for Material Defects: Dislocations, Plasticity, and Fracture

This is the first conference organized in the framework of my ERC Advanced Grant QuaDynEvoPro "Quasistatic and Dynamic Evolution Problems in Plasticity and Fracture" and second annual workshop of the PIRE (Partnerships for International Research and Education) project "Science at the triple point between mathematics, mechanics and materials science", which includes the Carnegie Mellon University, the California Institute of Technology, the New York University, and the University of Minnesota.

Mathematical Control in Trieste

MCT is a conference for researchers in Mathematical Control. It focuses on theoretical methods for control both of PDEs and ODEs, as well as some challenging applications. The first part of the conference (December 2nd - 4th) is centered on Control of PDEs. The second part of the conference (December 5th - 6th) focuses on Control of ODEs. During the whole week, a short course on Stochastic Control (10h) is scheduled.
