Isaac Newton Institute Workshop on Anti-diffusion in multiphase and active flows June 10-14, 2024

The Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge, UK, is running a program January-June 2024 on Anti-diffusive dynamics: from sub-cellular to astrophysical scales https://www.newton.ac.uk/event/adi/. As part of the program, there are a number of one-week workshops. I particularly want to invite this community to participate in the Workshop on Anti-diffusion in multiphase and active flows June 10-14, 2024. This Workshop will bring together specialists in theory, numerical simulations, and experiments to address questions including: Can we draw quantitative connections between the interfacial properties of turbulent multi-phase fluids and those of active structured fluids that can form phases with orientational order — both polar and nematic — and are important to biological applications? What are the roles of active forces and interface anchoring in renormalizing the interfacial tension and driving coarsening kinetics? Can we identify generic classes of extended systems that organize in nonequilibrium statistically steady states, with both spatial and temporal structure? How can we systematize the study of the statistical properties of particles and fields in multi-phase and active-fluid turbulence?

CECAM Workshop on curvature, topology, and non-reciprocal interactions in soft and active matter, in Lausanne, Switzerland, 2-5 July 2024

Curvature and topology play vital roles in living systems. The proper functionality of tissues and organs depends not only on the types of cells but also on their spatial distribution. A great example of how curvature emerges and affects biological processes is the development of an embryo, where collectives of cells differentiate and rearrange themselves into complex three-dimensional functional structures. Equally important are the effects of non-reciprocal interactions, which are typically observed in cells or microorganisms, animal groups, and social agents. These interactions play pivotal roles in phenomena such as predator-prey dynamics, velocity alignment, and opinion spreading. This workshop will bring together scientists specializing in the fields of curvature, topology, and non-reciprocal interactions, particularly with applications to soft and active matter. The aim is to encourage dialogue and idea exchange that will advance the community towards overcoming the inherent challenges in these areas.

International Summer School on Computational Quantum Materials 2024

Méthodes numériques pour matériaux quantiques 2024

May 20 (Arrival May 19) to May 31, 2024

Jouvence, Orford, Québec


The power of quantum mechanics as a description of nature has never been clearer. But it remains a formidable challenge to solve the equations that are necessary to understand collective electronic properties of complex solids. Conceptual advances, new algorithms and the power of modern computers have allowed numerical methods to rank amongst new theoretical frameworks that are indispensable for this purpose.

This School will focus on computational tools for both models and ab-initio methods that deal with so-called "quantum materials" whose spectacular properties range from high-temperature superconductors to large thermopower materials. These properties are consequences of the non-trivial quantum mechanical nature of electrons and of their interactions.

The merging of methods for models of strongly correlated quantum materials with ab-initio methods now allows one to make predictions for materials with d and f electrons that were unimaginable until recently. A good part of the School will be devoted to these.

Extensive hands-on training on freely available codes, ABINITTRIQS, and a few others such as COMSCOPEWannier90 will be an integral part of the School.

Lectures will be pedagogical, presented in a logical sequence and some review material will make sure students are on the same page.

ROOM AND BOARD (in CAD 12 days)

(There is a $200 discount for those that register for the 3 credits PhD course)

Single occupancy with taxes              $1 800

Double occupancy with taxes            $1 400

Multiple occupancy with taxes          $1 000

The School will

  1. Introduce the background in many-body theory necessary to understand modern computational methods. That includes second quantization, Green functions, functional integrals and functional derivative methods, RPA, GW and TPSC approximations.
  2. Give an in-depth introduction to the main numerical methods used in the study of quantum materials, so that the student will be able to use them, become familiar with the breakthroughs they allowed and be able to make a critical appraisal of each method's relative strengths and weaknesses.
  3. Illustrate and contribute to the dramatic cross-fertilization that is occurring between ab initio Density Functional approaches and methods developed in many-body theory for highly correlated quantum materials such as Dynamical Mean-Field Theory (DMFT) and Continuous-Time Quantum Monte Carlo solvers. The steps involved in defining model Hamiltonians from Density Functional approaches will be explained.
  4. Introduce the students to a few current research problems, such as quantum systems out of equilibrium, diagrammatic quantum Monte Carlo, Variational wave-functions and Neural networks

This School will thus help train the next generation of researchers to use and develop tools that have become crucial to solve important problems that are intractable with standard analytical approaches. They will also be taught a few "good practice" programming techniques that should be helpful to them in a broad range of job opportunities.

About two-thirds of the schooling time will be spent learning numerical methods, but each one will also be abundantly illustrated with applications on topics of current research interest.

Formal presentations will be in the morning and just before a late dinner. There will thus be posters sessions and ample time for discussions in the afternoon.

ABINIT
Is a package whose main program allows one to find the total energy, charge density and electronic structure of systems made of electrons and nuclei (molecules and periodic solids) within Density Functional Theory (DFT), using pseudopotentials and a planewave or wavelet basis.

TRIQS

Is an open-source, computational physics library providing a framework for the quick development of applications in the field of many-body quantum physics, and in particular, strongly-correlated electronic systems. It supplies components to develop codes in a modern, concise and efficient way.

COMSCOPE
Comsuite combines a selection of powerful numerical tools that permit a user to perform first principles calculations for weakly and strongly correlated materials - using extension and simplified versions of dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) in combination with realistic electronic structure methods.

Wannier90
Wannier90 is an open-source code (released under GPLv2) for generating maximally-localized Wannier functions and using them to compute advanced electronic properties of materials with high efficiency and accuracy.

STUDENT PARTICIPATION

This is a summer school so students are at the center of this event. There will be two official poster sessions where students can present their work, but posters will be exhibited during the whole school to encourage in-depth discussion. Questions are encouraged, free time and hands-on sessions give ample time for students to interact with Faculty and with each other.

Students should have at least one year of graduate work and be familiar with advanced quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. A few places will be available to postdocs and Faculty members. Exceptionally, they can request to attend only part of the school. International students need to obtain a visa or to show their admission letter upon entry, depending on their country of origin.

All students can register for this School as a three credit PhD level course with Université de Sherbrooke (there will be 45 hours of lecture, equivalent to a one-semester course). There are no fees for registration or tuition to the course. There will be a discount on living expenses for those that register for credit.
