UKCosmo at Edinburgh

UKCosmo is a series of meetings which have been taking place roughly quarterly for 25 years now, creating a forum for exchange of ideas in particle cosmology and related areas. The goal is to provide an informal setting and for many PhD students this series is their first opportunity to ...

Classical and quantum matrix product states: exploring the structure of non-equilibrium states

A quiet revolution has occurred in the last decade in the understanding of low-dimensional correlated quantum systems. The use of theories based on matrix product states has provided a reliable, controlled approximation scheme that can accurately describe the low energy states, as well as the dynamics of many models. The ...

Fluctuation-dissipation dynamics in the early universe II

We will examine the application of dissipation and fluctuation dynamics in the early Universe. This will include its applications in warm inflation, cosmic phase transitions and in the radiation dominated era. Recent developments from CMB analysis from Planck and BICEP2 are at the moment showing a unclear picture, and then ...

New Frontiers in the Characterization of Molecular Systems

Molecular dynamics and related simulation methods have proven to be effective tools to investigate the behaviour of complex systems in chemistry, biology and physics. MD is nowadays an important aid in refining experimental models, for predicting the behavior of novel materials, and for probing systematically how molecules fold and reshape ...

DEX - Workshop: 'Big Surveys + Big Simulations = Big Science'

New generations of observational surveys will generate large amounts of data that will open up new directions in astrophysical research. To interpret these observation next generation simulations are needed that span large dynamic ranges in mass and density. This workshop intends to bring together observers and theorists to discuss the ...

Higgs Centre Symposium: Scientific Challenges and Big Computing

Scientific Challenges and Big Computing Many Grand Challenge problems in theoretical and experimental particle physics, theoretical astrophysics, and condensed matter physics may be addressed by computer simulation. This is a third scientific method lying between traditional theoretical tools and experiment. Grand Challenge problems are also distinguished by having their solution ...
