Discussion Meeting
Julius, Nikolay Gromov, Aninda Sinha and Pedro Vieira
22 June 2020 to 27 June 2020
Madhava Lecture Hall, ICTS Bangalore

Mathematica Summer School is a unique international event in theoretical physics, with a long history of success. It has a unique format; the morning sessions are reserved for lecture sessions on theoretical aspects and in the afternoon, students and mentors get together to solve complicated problems using the software Mathematica - a popular computational tool in theoretical physics.

This summer school aims to equip young researchers with skills required to use modern computational tools and to provide them a platform to interact with experts from different mathematical fields, including computer algebra systems.

The topic for the 2020 edition of the Mathematica Summer School is ‘d>2 Conformal Field Theories’. It will focus on using Mathematica to explore physical and mathematical properties of conformal field theories (CFTs), in generic dimensions; an active area of modern mathematical physics. It will also cover various other aspects of CFTs, including integrability, holography, conformal bootstrap, topological sectors and mathematical aspects.

Lecturers include :

  1. Till Bargheer, Hannover University and DESY
  2. Nikolay Gromov, King’s College London
  3. Jason Harris, Wolfram
  4. Aninda Sinha, Indian Institute of Science
  5. Pedro Vieira, Perimeter Institute and ICTP – SAIFR
  6. Alexander Zhiboedov, CERN

Registration is open to PhD students, early PostDocs and advanced undergraduate and masters students in Theoretical Physics
