DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Eric Bergshoeff (University of Groningen)\, Dieter v

ty)\, Niels Obers (Niels Bohr Institute)\, Jelle Hartong (University of Ed
inburgh)\nOnline School\n\n \n\nPlatform: \n\nTime zone: CEST - Central
European Summer Time (Stockholm time)\n\n\nScope and purpose\n\nRecently\,
it has been realized that non-relativistic gravity encapsulates much more
than Newton’s law of gravity. Different models of non-relativistic gra
vity have shown to not only be useful in describing the gravitational forc
e in the non-relativistic regime but also provide a novel tool to elucidat
e non-perturbative phenomena in non-relativistic quantum field theories t
hat are otherwise difficult to access. These new insights have their origi
n both in holography and the AdS/CFT correspondence in string theory as we
ll as in effective field theory\, hydrodynamics and condensed matter physi
cs. Central to these developments has been the use of Newton-Cartan geomet
ry along with related avatars\, providing a powerful way to describe non-r
elativistic physics in a covariant manner\, in parallel with the use of Ri
emannian geometry in the General Relativity. \n\nApplications in the last
years include: Lifshitz holography\, fractional quantum Hall effect and
other non-relativistic condensed matter systems\, hydrodamics\, modified
gravity\, supersymmetric extensions\, supersymmetric field theories on cu
rved backgrounds\, non-relativistic string theory\, and double field theo
ry. The ultra-relativistic cousin\, Carroll geometry\, has likewise been
relevant in the context of strongly coupled gravity\, BMS symmetry\, flat-
space holography and black hole horizons. \n\nThese recent applications o
f non-relativistic quantum field theory\, gravity and geometry in such
a wide variety of areas make it opportune to organize a 5-day School on th
is topic which will enable participants from different backgrounds (conden
sed matter physics\, mathematics\, gravity and string theory) to get to th
e forefront of these ideas via a series of introductory lectures given by
experts in the field.\n\n\n\n\nLectures\n\nThe aim of the school is to giv
e introductory and pedagogical lectures\, bridging the gap between gradu
ate level basics and recent research developments. We welcome both gradu
ate students as well as more experienced researchers. The lecturers and to
pics are:\n\n\n Jan Rosseel (University of Vienna): Non-Lorentzian symmetr
ies and their gauging\n Dieter Van den Bleeken (Boğaziçi University): No
nrelativistic Gravity from the 1/c Expansion of General Relativity\n Shira
Chapman (Ben-Gurion University): Nonrelativistic Quantum Field Theory\n Z
iqi Yan (Nordita): Aspects of Nonrelativistic Strings\n Natalia Pinzani Fo
keeva (MIT): Fluid Dynamics: A Modern Perspective\n\n\n \n\n\n\nSchedul
e\n\nThe school will consist of five days of lectures\, each day starting
at 10 am (CEST) and include a morning and afternoon session. The first thr
ee lecture series mentioned above will be 4x40 minutes and the last two wi
ll be 3x40 minutes. There will also be a discussion session each day and l
ecturers will be available for questions and discussions. A more detaile
d schedule will be posted later. \n\n \n\n\n\n\nRegistration\n\nIf you a
re interested in participating in the school\, please apply via the regist
ration form (see left menu). As there may be limitations on the number of
participants\, we strongly encourage you to register before July 15\, 2021

SUMMARY:Molecular Response Properties Summer School 2021

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Patrick Norman (KTH Royal Institute of Technology)\n
Are you a PhD student or researcher interested in the study of interaction
s between light and molecular materials? Then you may also be interested i
n participating in MRPSS 2021 in Stockholm. The event has been re-schedu
led to take place during October 4-8\, 2021.\n\nThe school is organized
by Trond Saue\, Kenneth Ruud and Patrick Norman who have their background
s in the development and application of response theory methods in quantum
chemistry. Applications include electric and magnetic spectroscopic prope
rties of molecules\, including linear and nonlinear interactions.\n\n The
five-day program will include comprehensive presentations of time-dependen
t response theory and electrodynamics. Response theory is explored in the
time and frequency domains and with use of different quantum mechanical fo
rmulations. Electrodynamics is targeted towards an understanding of intern
al and external field interactions in/with molecular systems. More applied
lectures cover presentations of linear and nonlinear optical properties\,
vibrational spectroscopies\, UV/vis and X-ray absorption spectroscopies a
nd birefringences\, and magnetic resonance spectroscopies.\n\nWarmly welco
me!\n\nTrond Saue\, Kenneth Ruud\, and Patrick Norman.\n\nVenue\n\nNordita
\, Albanova University Center\n\nKTH Royal Institute of Technology\, Stock
holm\, Sweden\n\n\nRegistration\n\nWith the generous support from our spon
sors\, we can receive up to 25 students from outside the Stockholm region
for which accommodation is free of charge for the period Oct 3-9\, 2021. I
n addition\, we can receive up to 15 students from the Stockholm region th
at are not in need of accommodation. For all students\, we provide a copy
of the course book free of charge.\n\nTo register for the event\, send an
e-mail to Patrick Norman providing a brief research statement (max 1/2 pa
ge) and a support letter from your supervisor. In case the interest for pa
rticipation exceeds our capacity\, we will have to make a selection based
on this information.\n\n2021-01-21: We have already received and accepted
25 applications from students with need for accommodation and can unfortun
ately not offer more people in this category. There are a few remaining se
ats available for students that can take care of accommodation on their ow
n.\n\n2021-01-22: Also the seat without accommodation are now all taken an
d\, unfortunately\, we cannot accept more applications.\n\n2021-04-23: Du
e to the pandemic situation\, we are forced to reschedule the event to Oct
ober 4-8.\n\nCovid-19\n\nWe are acutely aware of the pandemic situation. A
t present\, educational activities at KTH Royal Institute of Technology a
re restricted and a number of measures are implemented. Please refer to t
his page for further up-to-date details. Clearly\, we will only deliver MR
PSS 2021 if it can be done in a safe and responsible manner for everyone i
nvolved. A final decision in this matter will be made no later than Septe
mber 1\, 2021.\n\nSingle occupancy rooms are made available for everyone.
