​​​​​​​​​​​​Mathematics of Condensed Matter and Beyond (MCMB)

February 22-25, 2021

  [Poster]                                                             [Program]*   ​                                      [Titles & Abstracts]*     *Beirut time zone (UTC +2)                                                       ​

Conference scope:  

Condensed matter physics is an important source of challenging mathematical problems. Models of superconductivity, Bose-Einstein condensates, and liquid crystals involve linear and non-linear versions of the Schrödinger equation. Their study requires sophisticated analytical tools coming from different areas of applied mathematics, with several established research groups contributing worldwide. 

The conference will bring together experts and​ young scholars to share their most recent ideas and results. It will be hosted virtually by the Center for Advanced Mathematical Sciences at the American University of Beirut (CAMS, AUB) whose mission is the promotion of mathematical sciences in the Middle East region. 

Through its mix of state of the art local and international contributions, the conference offers a unique opportunity to mathematicians/physicists in Lebanon and their PhD students.

The event is an integral part of a stream of activities within the 'CAMS Thematic Program in Mathematical Physics 2020-2021: Spectral theory, Semi-Classical Analysis, and Condensed Matter Physics', which is hosted by CAMS, between November 2020 and March 2021.

All slots for contributed talks are currently filled. We apologize for not accepting any further proposals.
