Quantum Spacetime ’17
2017-01-30 — 2017-02-03
The workshop will take place at Departamento de Física e Astronomia, Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto.
This workshop will address various aspects of noncommutative geometry (NCG) as covered by the COST Action MP1405 Quantum Structure of Spacetime (QSpace):
- Connection of NCG with realistic phenomenological models, including the Standard Models of Particle Physics and Cosmology
- New constructions of fields, matter and quantum spacetimes in NCG
- Connections between NCG and other models of gravity
Iberian Strings 2017
2017-01-16 — 2017-01-20
The Iberian Strings 2017 meeting is the eighth meeting of the Iberian Strings series. These meetings bring together a large part of the string theory community of Spain and Portugal and aim at discussing recent advances in the field of strings and branes.
ERC Grant awarded to Patrícia Gonçalves
Patrícia Gonçalves, researcher at CAMGSD and an Associate Professor at the Instituto Superior Técnico since May 2016, has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1,180,000€ for 5 years. This is the first time the European Research Council has granted this award to a mathematician working in Portugal.
The funded research project aims at characterizing the universality of the macroscopic behavior of some physical systems from underlying microscopic stochastic dynamics, by deriving the macroscopic laws, namely, (stochastic) partial differential equations, which govern the space-time evolution of the thermodynamic quantities of those physical systems.
