Special year 2020: Mathematical Physics

The special year 2020 is dedicated to a wide range of cutting edge topics in Mathematical Physics. Some highlights of the special year include a conference covering aspects of mathematics and physics related to the career of Rodney Baxter, a conference on the mathematics of conformal field theory, a conference on the mathematics of topological phases of matter, as well as lecture series by distinguished international visitors.

Upcoming events

6–10 July 2020
This event has been postponed due to COVID-19. It will take place in 2021 - dates to be confirmed. This conference will engage the various mathematics and mathematical physics communities who study CFT to discuss recent breakthroughs and develop new directions for future research.
3–4 December 2020
Mathēmatica Sōlis et Terrae will bring together mathematicians, physicists and earth-system scientists to explore synergies in high performance computing for simulation. Should current COVID-19 restrictions remain in place, alternative dates will be considered.
