16 - 20 September 2013
Organisers: Antonio García-García (Cambridge), Hong Liu (MIT) and Jan Zaanen (Leiden)
in association with the Newton Institute programme Mathematics and Physics of the Holographic Principle
(16 September - 11 October 2013)
The study of holographic dualities is currently a broad area of research located at the confluence of several traditionally separate communities of physics and mathematics ranging from QCD, condensed matter, statistical physics and string theory, to numerical relativity and non-linear partial differential equations.
This workshop, which is the launching event of the Isaac Newton Institute programme "Mathematics and Physics of the holographic principle", brings together leading experts in these diverse fields in order to create the critical mass of knowledge and skills necessary for the opening of new research avenues in this problem.
Although the workshop is open to any major development in the field, research lines that stimulate cross-fertilization and push the remit of holographic dualities will be especially highlighted. A sample of topics of interests is given below:
