Ilaria Maccari (Roma): Brezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless transition in disordered superconducting films

Despite its age, the Brezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless (BKT) transition remains one of the most fascinating examples of topological phase transitions. Its universality class describes several phenomena ranging from the quantum...

Stefano Cremonesi (London): The infrared physics of bad theories

Three-dimensional gauge theories with eight supercharges (3d N=4) have a rich moduli space of supersymmetric vacua with different low energy physics. This infrared physics is well understood for theories with large enough number...

Denis Martynov (USA): News from LIGO

Advanced LIGO is in its second science run. I will describe the main results of the first science run, observatory sensitivity during the second run and goals for the future. I will also talk about the current LIGO related...

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...
