Compositeness and QFT  or are chairs made of atoms?—Toby PETERKEN
In this talk, I explore the concept of compositeness in relation to QFT and argue that there is no satisfactory, exact definition of compositeness. Therefore, we are forced to conclude that all bound states, from pions to people, have the same fundamentality and that the sentence "chairs are made of ...

Nonperturbative Amplituhedron Geometry—Jaroslav TRNKA
I will review recent progress on the connections between scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory and the geometry of Amplituhedron, a recently discovered mathematical object which captures particle dynamics of strong interactions. In this picture, the physics problem of predicting the outcomes of particle scattering is reformulated as the mathematical ...

Secular evolution of selfgravitating systems
Selfgravitating systems  such as star clusters, stellar discs, and dark matter halos  are rich with dynamical phenomena. They exhibit both resonant (longrange) and nonresonant (shortrange) dynamics, with unclear transition regimes. The coupling of linear response theory, kinetic theory, quasilinear theory, and Nbody approaches for studying selfgravitating systems is now within ...

Dynamics of Dark Matter—Martin WEINBERG
'Dark matter' (DM) is a dynamical hypothesis born from our inability
to comprehend kinematic observations at the galaxy scale and larger
using baryonic matter only. Astronomers have struggled with the
implications of DM for galaxy formation and evolution for decades.
Conversely, we've exploited observations and cosmological simulations
to constrain ...

Algorithms23
Lattice Field Theories are a mature tool that yields robust predictions for precision tests of the Standard Model and potential BSM candidates.
Larger volumes, finer lattice spacings and decorrelated configurations are some of the requirements to tame the systematic errors still affecting the current simulations. Improved algorithms, and strong mathematical ...

Early Career Researchers in Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics
This event will be mainly sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics group.
The group is interested in a range of problems, covering the properties of molecules and the behaviour of macroscopic matter and is an interdisciplinary enterprise, embracing synthetic chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, polymer science ...

Complete and partial wetting in active liquids—Francesco TURCI
Dry and wet layers on a wall are the surface manifestation of equilibrium liquidvapour phase transitions. Active liquids are disordered nonequilibrium systems that dissipate energy locally, able to produce phase separation in the absence of attractive interactions. We connect the emergent motilityinduced separation of model active liquids with effective manybody ...

Topological Soft Matter
Soft materials and complex fluids are a fundamental component of modern industry and everyday life. The majority of the materials around us are made by chemical or physical crosslinking of linear polymers. However, a growing number of groups are exploring an entirely new class of materials with unique properties governed ...

Beyond Energetic and Scalar measures with Vector Fields: Next Generation QTAIM—Samantha JENKINS
Next Generation Quantum Theory of Atoms in Molecules (NGQTAIM) is constructed from the eigenvectors of the Hessian of the total (realspace) charge density distribution ρ(r) field and can also use the eigenvectors of the stress tensor σ(r) and the Ehrenfest Force F(r) = ∙σ(r). NGQTAIM can, for ...

Converging on QCD+QED prescriptions
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss recent developments in QCD+QED calculations, with particular emphasis on converging on prescriptions to define isospinbreaking corrections to hadronic observables. The main goal is to discuss with lattice practitioners and phenomenologists for a potential future update of the FLAG review. There will ...

DNA supercoiling: statistical physics, theoretical models and experiments
If we take an elastic rubber wire, for instance of the type used in earphone sets, and keep twisting up one portion, at some point it buckles and writhes in 3D. Old telephone cords do exactly the same, and tend to end up into a tangled mess after months of ...
