Symposium Walter Thirring - In Memoriam

A symposium on the occasion of his 90th Birthday

Walter Thirring (29 April 1927 - 18 August 2014) was one of Austria’s most distinguished physicists during his long professional career. He made seminal contributions to many...

Steven G. Louie (USA): Ab initio Studies of Excited-State Phenomena in Condensed Matter: GW, GW-BSE, and Beyond

Many fundamental phenomena in and applications of materials are dictated by the nature of their excited states. In this talk, we discuss some recent progress and applications of the GW approach and its extensions to compute...

Harold Steinacker (Vienna): Covariant Quantum Spaces, Matrix Models and Gravity

I will discuss geometrical properties and physical perspectives of 4-dimensionalcovariant quantum spaces, focusing on the fuzzy 4-sphere. These spaces realize quantum geometries with local and global symmetries. The fluctuations...

Thibaut Sylvestre (SFEMTO-ST Institute): Surface Brillouin scattering in optical microfibers

Brillouin light scattering in optical fibres is a fundamental interaction between light and sound with important implications ranging from optical sensors to slow and fast light. In conventional optical fibres, light both excites...

Elik Olami (Jerusalem): Continuum dynamics on manifolds: Applications to Elasticity of Residually-Stressed Bodies

In this talk we discuss the dynamics of continua on differentiable manifolds. We present a covariant derivation of equations of motion, viewing motion as a curve in the infinite-dimensional Banach manifold of embeddings of a body...

Günter Grampp (TU Graz): Are the Current Theories of Electron Transfer applicable to Kinetics in Ionic Liquids?

Vortrag im Rahmen der Chemisch Physikalischen Gesellschaft

First a short introduction into both, the current theories of electron transfer (namely Marcus-Theory, Nobel Prize 1992) and the unusual physical-chemical properties of...

Andrzej Rostworowski (Cracow): Higher order perturbations of Anti-de Sitter space and time-periodic solutions of vacuum Einstein equations

Motivated by the problem of stability of Anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime, I will discuss nonlinear gravitational perturbations of maximally symmetric solutions of vacuum Einstein equations in general and the case of AdS in...

Sari Ghanem (Potsdam): The decay of SU(2) Yang-Mills fields on the Schwarzschild black hole with spherically symmetric small energy initial data

First, I will present the Yang-Mills equations on arbitrary fixed curved space-times, valued in the Lie algebra associated to any arbitrary Lie group. Thereafter, I will expose recent results with Dietrich Häfner concerning the...

Eric Bergshoeff (NL): Applied Newton-Cartan Geometry

I will give an introduction into the non-relativistic version of Riemannian geometry, which is called Newton-Cartan geometry. The corresponding non-relativistic gravity theory, called Newton-Cartan gravity, has received a renewed...
