Universality at Large Transverse Spin in Defect CFThttps://indico.math.cnrs.fr/event/3302/2018-02-21T11:00:00Z<p style="text-align:justify">We study the spectrum of local operators living on a defect in a generic conformal field theory, and their coupling to the local bulk operators. We establish the existence of universal accumulation points in the spectrum at large <em>s</em>, <em>s</em> being the charge of the operators under rotations in the space transverse to the defect. Our tools include a formula that inverts the bulk to defect OPE and is analytic in <em>s</em>, analogous to the Caron-Huot formula for the four-point function. Some important assumptions are made in deriving this result: we comment on them.</p>
Three Lectures on Causality in Conformal Field Theory (1/3)https://indico.math.cnrs.fr/event/3308/2018-02-22T11:00:00Z<p>Causality places nontrivial constraints on QFT in Lorentzian signature, for example fixing the signs of certain terms in the low energy Lagrangian. In these pedagogical lectures, I will explore causality constraints on conformal field theory. First, I will show how causality is encoded in crossing symmetry and reflection positivity of Euclidean correlators, and derive constraints on the interactions of low-lying operators directly from the conformal bootstrap. Then, I will explain the connection between these causality constraints and the averaged null energy condition. Finally, I will use causality to show that the averaged null energy is positive in interacting quantum field theory in flat spacetime. Based on <a href="http://arxiv.org/abs/1509.00014">arXiv:1509.00014</a>, <a href="http://arxiv.org/abs/1601.07904">arXiv:1601.07904</a>, <a href="http://arxiv.org/abs/1610.05308">arXiv:1610.05308</a>.</p>
Gromov-Hausdorff Limits of Curves with Flat Metrics and Non-Archimedean Geometryhttps://indico.math.cnrs.fr/event/3311/2018-02-23T14:30:00Z<p style="text-align:justify">Two versions of the SYZ conjecture proposed by Kontsevich and Soibelman give a differential-geometric and a non-Archimedean recipes to find the base of the SYZ fibration associated to a family of Calabi-Yau manifolds with maximal unipotent monodromy. In the first one this space is the Gromov-Hausdorff limit of associated geodesic metric spaces, and in the second one it is a subset of the Berkovich analytification of the associated variety over the field of germs of meromorphic functions over a punctured disc. In this talk I will discuss a toy version of a comparison between the two pictures for maximal unipotent degenerations of complex curves with flat metrics with conical singularities, and speculate how the techniques used can be extended to higher dimensions.</p>

The Self-Avoiding Walk Model (1/4)https://indico.math.cnrs.fr/event/3186/2018-03-06T10:30:00Z<p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Cours des Professeurs Permanents de l'IHES</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">The course will focus on rigorous results for the self-avoiding walk model on lattices, with a special emphasis on low-dimensional ones. The model is defined by choosing uniformly at random among random walk paths starting from the origin and without self-intersections. Despite its simple definition, the self-avoiding walk is difficult to comprehend in a mathematically rigorous fashion, and many of the most important problems illustrating standard challenges of critical phenomena remain unsolved. The model is combinatorial in nature but many questions about the stochastic properties of these random paths can be solved by combining nice combinatorial features with probabilistic techniques. In the course, we will describe some of the recent techniques developed in the area, including the use of discrete holomorphicity to understand the model on the hexagonal lattice.</p>

Topological Recursion, from Enumerative Geometry to Integrability (1/4)https://indico.math.cnrs.fr/event/3191/2018-03-15T10:00:00Z<p style="text-align: justify;">Topological recursion (TR) is a remarkable universal recursive structure that has been found in many enumerative geometry problems, from combinatorics of maps (discrete surfaces), to random matrices, Gromov-Witten invariants, knot polynomials, conformal blocks, integrable systems...

Reductive groups and automorphic forms. Dedicated to the French school of automorphic forms and in memory of Roger Godement.https://indico.math.cnrs.fr/event/2833/2018-05-14T09:00:00Z<p style="text-align:justify">The conference "Reductive groups and automorphic forms" marks the closing of the European Research Council project "Arithmetic of automorphic motives," (AAMOT) and it is dedicated to the French school of automorphic forms and to the colleagues who have contributed to its vitality over many decades. We find it especially appropriate to dedicate the conference to the memory of Roger Godement, who passed away on July 21, 2016, and whose early and consistent commitment was of such importance in establishing Paris as a major international center in the Langlands program and in the theory of automorphic forms more broadly understood.</p>

<p style="text-align:justify">The Summer school on "Supersymmetric Localization and Exact Results" will be held at the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques (IHES) from July 16 to July 27, 2018. IHES is located in Bures-sur-Yvette, south of Paris (40 minutes by train from Paris).</p>
<p style="text-align:justify">This school is open to everybody but intended primarily for young participants, including PhD students and postdoctoral fellows.</p>
<hr />
<blockquote>
<p style="text-align:justify">Significant progress has been made in the study of gauge theories in the last decade. Thanks to the discovery of novel techniques and especially supersymmetric localization, the field now possesses a plethora of exact results that previously seemed unreachable.<br />
<br />
Starting with the work of Nekrasov who computed the instanton partition function for N=2 theories in four dimensions, Pestun computed the exact partition function on a four-sphere for theories with N=2 supersymmetry. Shortly after the partition functions as well as other observables in various spacetime dimensions and compact manifolds were computed.<br />
<br />
Our school aims in deepening the understanding of current results and at investigating which of our current methods are transferable to theories with less supersymmetry, as well as trying to increase the list of possible observables that are computable via localization.<br />
<br />
Each week will feature three or four speakers giving one lecture per day. During the first week, in addition to these three one hour and a half lectures there will be discussion and homework sessions in the afternoon. During the second week, some of the lectures will be replaced by talks on more advanced topics.</p>
