EMNEQ Focus Workshop: Algorithmic Perspectives on Complex Matter

The Theory and Simulation Group is pleased to announce a focus workshop on “Emergence and non-equilibrium physics: algorithmic perspectives on complex matter”, which was held within the EPSRC NetworkPlus on “Emergence and Non-Equilibrium Physics (EMNEQ)” at the University of Kent on 30 April – 1 May 2019.

Talks starting at 10:30am on day 1, finishing at 4:30pm on day 2 – see the detailed schedule here.

Arrival Information: see practical information.

Registration is now closed. However, if you would like to join, please email the organiser regarding possibility to join.

Registration fees for non-network participants: full registration (including conference dinner): £100; day registration only: £50.

Conference organiser: Dr Gunnar Möller

Conference Remit:

The workshop will shine light specifically on numerical approaches available to explore emergent orders and their theoretical foundations, with an added focus on the non-equilibrium responses and phase transitions. The workshop will bring together experts in both quantum systems and classical systems, to stimulate discussion and exchange of ideas across disciplines. A discussion session will focus on new opportunities to combine existing methods for better effect and scope out the most promising directions for future development.

The program is now available on this page, including the following topics:

  • Dynamics of strongly correlated matter
  • Innovations as the crossover of classical statistical physics and quantum mechanics
  • Neural Networks for Condensed Matter Systems
  • Interplay of Disorder and Dynamics
  • New method development

Invited speakers:

George Booth, King’s College London
Stephen Clark, University of Bristol
Juan Garrahan, University of Nottingham
Andrew Green, University College London
Emanuel Gull, University of Michigan
Werner Krauth, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris
Zlatko Papic, University of Leeds
Frank Pollmann, Technical University Munich
Ulrich Schneider, University of Cambridge
David Schwab, CUNY Graduate Center
Luca Tagliacozzo, University of Strathclyde
Thorsten Wahl, University of Oxford

All participants are invited to present posters, and introduce their work in a lightning talk.
