Theoretical Modeling of Large-Scale Structure of the Universe

Several surveys of the large-scale structure of the Universe which significantly improve the quality and amount of cosmological data are currently underway, including the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI, halfway through), Euclid (starting to take data), Dark Energy Survey (DES, doing final analyses), HSC (data taking complete), PFS (commissioning), and ...

New Vistas in Stochastic Resetting

Stochastic resetting is an intriguing mechanism that is relevant in physics, chemistry, biology, ecology, engineering and economics. Arguably, the idea first emerged in 'restart' algorithms in computer science where deliberating restarting an algorithm improves convergence rates. In physics the idea of stochastically resetting a stochastic process to some initial condition ...

Dilaton Dynamics - from Theory to Applications

The dilaton is a hypothetical particle that emerges in the long-distance description of dynamical theories in which approximate scale invariance is spontaneously broken. Can this statement be made more precise? The classification of theories that give rise to such a particle is an ongoing challenge, for which new tools, both ...

The Physics of Self-Organising Active Matter (Higgs Centre Workshop)

The physics of self-organising active matter is a key frontier in contemporary science, bringing together theorists working in non-equlibrium physics and applied mathematics with experimentalists in fields as varied as cell biology, robotics and soft matter physics. The field has the opportunity to address deep questions in non-equilibrium physics, developmental ...

Physics by the Lake Summer School 2024

Physics by the Lake is the UK national summer school on theoretical condensed matter physics, aimed at PhD students towards the end of their first year. While geared towards UK students, we welcome participants worldwide. It is organised by the Institute of Physics (IOP) Theory of Condensed Matter group. It ...
