The Shifting Paradigm of Stellar Convection: From Mixing Length Concepts to Realistic Turbulence Modeling


2—27 March 2020

Coordinators: Hideyuki Hotta, Petri Käpylä, Markus Roth

Understanding stellar convection is of crucial importance to many fields of stellar astrophysics. For example, the generation and maintenance of differential rotation and large-scale magnetic fields in stars rely on turbulent convection. However, mounting evidence suggests that our understanding of stellar convection is much more incomplete than previously thought. We bring together experts in three-dimensional convection simulations, helio- and asteroseismology, and theoreticians working on replacing the mixing length concept to present the latest developments and to address open problems in the field.

11th Nordic Workshop on Statistical Physics: Biological, Complex and Non-Equilibrium Systems


25—27 March 2020

Coordinators: Ralf Eichhorn, Alberto Imparato

This workshop series provides a forum where scientists in the Nordic countries working in the area of Statistical Physics can meet regularly. Topics covered include diffusion problems, physics of DNA and bio-molecules, population dynamics, pattern formation, non-equilibrium transport, bacterial motility, single-molecule kinetics, dynamics and structure of networks, statistical inference, Monte-Carlo simulation techniques, self-assembly, soft condensed matter (colloids, liquid crystals etc.), work relations and fluctuation theorems, and many more.

Is There Still Room for Naturalness?


14 April — 1 May 2020

Coordinators: Elin Bergeås Kuutmann, Rikard Enberg, Gabriele Ferretti, David Milstead, Jörgen Sjölin, Sara Strandberg

In the Standard Model, the mass of the Higgs boson is greatly destabilised by quantum corrections, and free parameters of the model need to be extremely fine-tuned in order to arrive at the measured Higgs mass. A fundamental aim of this program is to quantify the extent to which current measurements and searches can constrain models which attempt to restore naturalness by extending the SM. The expected sensitivity from future high precision running at the LHC and of planned non-collider experiments will also be studied. This program deviates from related work in this field by maintaining a sharp focus on the naturalness question and how well a top quark partner can resolve it in different theoretical scenarios using a range of measured observables.

30th Nordic Network Meeting on "Strings, Fields, and Branes"


22—24 April 2020

Particle Growth in Turbulence


18 May — 12 June 2020

Coordinators: Axel Brandenburg, Bernhard Mehlig, Gunilla Svensson

The question of how particles and droplets can grow in a turbulent environment is of great current interest in many fields, in astrophysics, cloud microphysics, in biology, and in the engineering sciences. For example, coagulation and condensation in turbulent clouds turn microscopic cloud droplets into rain drops. In astrophysics, planetesimals are thought to form by aggregation of microscopic dust grains in the turbulent environment surrounding a forming star. In both cases, turbulence is believed to be a crucial factor for particle growth. Yet the microscopic mechanisms determining this growth are far from understood. In the past few years there has been substantial progress in understanding the mechanisms that determine how particles move in turbulence, albeit mostly for simplified model systems. The challenge is now to understand how these mechanisms lead to rapid particle growth.

Are there Universal Laws in Non-Equilibrium Statistical Physics?


24 August — 18 September 2020

Coordinators: Bart Cleuren, Astrid de Wijn, Ralf Eichhorn, Supriya Krishnamurti

Equilibrium statistical physics provides an extremely powerful, universal formalism that tells us how many-particle systems in thermal equilibrium behave, and how we can characterize their properties by only a few macroscopic quantities. However, most systems and processes found in nature are out of equilibrium. Think of any living organism, or directed transport in cells mediated by molecular motors. Often these systems consist of only a few entities and are so small that thermal fluctuations play a prominent role. It has been a vision from the early days of statistical mechanics to develop a theoretical description for such small non-equilibrium systems that is comparably powerful and universal as is equilibrium statistical physics. The aim of this program is to bring together the leading experts in (non-equilibrium) statistical physics to critically discuss and evaluate the latest developments towards a universal theory for non-equilibrium systems.
