Time and place

June 24-27, 2014
Lecture hall PII on the ground floor of the Porthania building, University of Helsinki
Street address: Yliopistonkatu 3, Helsinki, Finland


The general scope of the meeting is to capture the research at the frontiers in mathematical physics. A particular focus will be in four topics from contemporary physics central also to Antti Kupiainen’s own research: dynamical systems, quantum and statistical field theories, renormalization and non-equilibrium phenomena. Their study is in a natural way connected to a number of fields in mathematics, for example, complex analysis, ergodic theory, harmonic analysis, nonlinear partial differential equations, random geometry, spectral theory and stochastic processes. The aim of the conference is to bring together world leading experts in these topics, ranging the full spectrum from pure mathematics to physics.
