New Trends in Thermal Phases of QCD

Prague Workshop: "New Trends in Thermal Phases of QCD", Apr 14-17, 2023


Workshop Focus: 

Discovery of near-perfect fluidity in hot strongly-interacting matter revealed gaps in our theoretical understanding of thermal QCD. In an effort to refocus on the basics, this workshop will bring together researchers working in related areas to closely interact, exchange ideas, and share experiences on this topic. A particular attention will be given to aspects of Anderson localization, IR scale invariance and Dirac spectral non-analyticity that recently entered this thought arena, but also to more traditional topics such as U_A(1) anomaly, topology, equation of state and other.

In order to get from Vila Marna to Řež, the easiest way is to get on the train at the Praha-Podbaba station (15 minutes walking from Vila Marna, see the map underneath). The train goes every 30 minutes, i.e. 7:49, 8:19, 8:49 etc., and reaches Řež in less than 15 minutes.

Mathematical Results in Quantum Theory (QMath)

A conference series "Mathematical Results in Quantum Theory" (or QMath) was initiated by P. Exner and P. Seba in 1987. The aim is not only to bring together people interested in the "quantum part" of mathematical physics, but in the first place to stimulate a search of new quantum effects and a deeper understanding of quantum physics, as well as development of methods which can help in situations where the standard quantum mechanical tools are inadequate. Up to now there were thirteen meetings, the fourteenths is in preparation:
