The next Northern Number Theory Seminar (NuTS) will be held at York on Tuesday 15 October 2019. Below and attached are the details. Everybody is welcome to attend!
The Northern NuTS is a joint research seminar in number theory. It links the number theory research groups of Durham, Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield and York.
The seminar is funded by the LMS Grant Scheme 3. The website for Northern NuTS is https://www.maths.nottingham.ac.uk/plp/pmzcw/northernnuts.html
Mathematics of interacting QFT models, 1-5 July 2019
The aim of this conference is to bring together experts working on different aspects of interacting QFT to present recent results and discuss perspectives for future directions. The main discussion topics will be:
Axiomatic systems for QFT: progress in constructing interacting models.
Renormalization: analytic and combinatorial aspects.
Infrared problem: progress and perspectives.
Applied Algebra and Geometry research network Meeting
This research network brings together UK academics who are interested in applications of algebra and geometry, and related algebraically-minded fields, be it commutative algebra, representation theory, group theory, process algebras, as well as algebraic geometry, category theory, and algebraic topology. The scope extends to computational algebra for applications including data-science, biology, medicine, engineering, physics, etc.
The activities of the Applied Algebra and Geometry research network are funded by the London Mathematical Society, the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, and the Glasgow Mathematical Journal Trust.
Energy conditions in quantum theory and gravity
Classical energy conditions were introduced as a means of codifying generic properties of matter in general relativity. They play key roles in the singularity theorems of Hawking and Penrose and in many other results of mathematical relativity. However, not all models of classical matter obey the pointwise energy conditions, and quantum fields cannot obey any of them.
