DESCRIPTION:Thematic 6-weeks programme at Institut Henri Poincaré\, Paris
\, March 18th to April 26th\, 2024.Pre-registration is now open.Please als
o register for the workshop if you wish to attend. It takes place in the
week April 8th to 12th\, 2024. The link for the registration is here: Curv
ed spacetimes\, field theory and beyond Presentation of the programme:In
light of the progress in cosmological observations\, in gravitational wave
s detection and in particle physics\, there are exciting perspectives for
discoveries at the interface between classical and quantum theories. To ma
ke the most of this variety of new data\, it becomes increasingly importan
t to understand and model how classical and quantum fields propagate and i
nfluence the spacetime geometry\, and how quantum phenomena manifest thems
elves on the large scale. This imperative raises difficult mathematical q
uestions which require a refined understanding of asymptotic structures\,
field propagation and spacetime dynamics\, and of the relationships of qua
ntum degrees of freedom with geometry. From the mathematical point of view
it is now a particularly exciting time to address these interconnected pr
oblems because of the broad advances in partial differential equations and
in field quantization: the former has resulted in a comprehensive array o
f methods to describe black hole physics and scattering phenomena on curve
d spacetimes\, whereas the latter has provided crucial clarity into proble
matic concepts and formalisms\, paving also new paths towards capturing qu
antum effects induced by gravity.The main objective of the IHP programme
will be to take these developments to the next level and to create an envi
ronment for an unprecedented exchange of ideas between expert mathematicia
ns and physicists. The focus will be on topics among the following\, both
from the mathematical and physical perspective: Quantum Field Theory on c
urved spacetimesSemi-classical and effective theories of gravitySpectral a
ction principles for gravity and beyondAsymptotic analysis and scattering
on curved spacetimes Geometry of null surfaces and the black hole entropy
