Exploring New Topics with Functional Renormalisation

French-German WE-Heraeus-Seminar

01 May - 05 May 2023


Physikzentrum Bad Honnef

Scientific organizers:

Prof. Dr. Bertrand Delamotte, Prof. Dr. Nicolas Dupuis, Sorbonne Université, Paris, France • Prof. Dr. Stefan Floerchinger, University Jena, Germany • Prof. Dr. Christof Wetterich, University Heidelberg, Germany

The aim of this workshop is to explore new avenues where functional renormalisation starts being used and offers high prospects. Possible subjects are:

  • Non-equilibrium time evolution from cosmology to turbulence and ultracold atoms
  • Active matter and biophysics
  • Functional renormalisation for neural networks, artificial intelligence, cellular automata and economy
  • Combination of functional renormalisation with other methods and numerical developments

These apparently very different fields are bridged by the development of common methods. We intend to bring together active groups working in France and Germany, together with a few speakers from other countries. We envisage to supplement topical talks by more school like elements where certain fields can be deepened for participants not working on the particular subject.

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
