DESCRIPTION:Prof. Dr. Reinhard Lipowsky\, Department of Theory & Bio-Syste
ms\, MPI of Colloids and Interfaces\, Potsdam\n\nWhat keeps us going: Forc
e generation and transport by molecular motors\n\nAll eukaryotic cells inc
luding those of our body contain a large variety of molecular machines tha
t convert the chemical energy released from nucleotide hydrolysis into mec
hanical work. This talk focusses on molecular stepping motors such as kine
sin\, which use their two motor domains or "heads" to walk along very thin
filaments.\nOur theory for these motors starts from their enzymatic activ
ity during ATP hydrolysis and from the corresponding nucleotide states. Th
is approach provides a general classification scheme for the different mot
or cycles\, each of which can be characterized in terms of its free energy
transduction and entropy production arbitrarily far from chemical and/or
mechanical equilibrium. The properties of single motors are then used to d
escribe the cooperative behavior of many motors. The latter behavior inclu
des cargo transport by one or two (antagonistic) team of motors. Systems c
onsisting of many motors and cargo particles can undergo traffic phase tra
nsitions.

DESCRIPTION:Prof. Dr. Bernd Rosenow\, University of Leipzig\n\nSpectroscop
y of Majorana fermions in non-linear transport\n\nMuch effort has been dev
oted recently to the search for experimental demonstrations of Majorana fe
rmions and the exotic quantum statistics that can be encoded by them. In t
his talk I will mainly focus on Majorana fermions in the non-abelian quant
um Hall state at filling fraction nu=5/2. To detect them\, there have been
several proposals for transport experiments in the linear regime\, which
however are not robust with respect to disorder in realistic samples. I
will discuss signatures of Majorana states in non-linear transport through
a Coulomb blockaded antidot of nu=5/2 quantum Hall fluid surrounded by an
integer quantum Hall state. In contrast with linear Coulomb blockade (C
B)\, current-voltage characteristics in the non-linear regime of the CB ho
ld information of the many-particle excitation spectrum of the system. A p
eak in the differential conductance dI/dV will appear whenever a proper re
sonance condition between the source-drain voltage and the excitations of
the dot is met. The "diamond structure" that characterizes the CB out of t
he linear response regime could serve to identify the nature of the nu=5/2
state.\n

ro-modes and the structure of Dirac's vortex core in graphene\n\nThe vorte
x in any O(2) order parameter on graphene's honeycomb lattice is known to
produce zero-energy states. I will discus how these rather special states
in the middle of the spectrum induce local order in the core of the vortex
. The local order parameters in general close the algebra Cl(3)x U(1)\, wh
ere Cl(3) is the three dimensional Clifford algebra\, with the members of
this algebra depending on the type of order supporting the vortex. The sup
erconducting order will be discussed in some detail\, and the curious dual
ity between the topological insulation and the superconductivity in graphe
ne will be pointed out.

DESCRIPTION:Prof. Dr. D. Vollhardt\, University of Augsburg\n\nConstructio
n of exact ground states for correlated electron models\n\nA general schem
e for the construction of exact ground states of correlated electron model
s will\nbe discussed. It consists of three steps: The transformation of th
e Hamiltonian into positive semidefinite\nform\, the construction of many-
particle ground states of this Hamiltonian\, and the proof of the\nuniquen
ess of these ground states. This approach works in any dimension\, assumes
no integrability of\nthe model and only requires sufficiently many micros
copic parameters in the Hamiltonian. Thereby\nground states of diamond Hub
bard chains are constructed which exhibit a multitude of properties such\n
as flat-band ferromagnetism and correlation induced metallic\, half-metall
ic or insulating behavior.\nFurthermore\, the exact ground state of a 1D p
eriodic Anderson model is shown to explain the unusual\nferromagnetism in
the f electron material CeRh3B2. Finally\, it is proved that pentagon chai
n polymers\nmay be designed to become ferromagnetic or half metallic.

DESCRIPTION:Prof. Dr. B. Trauzettel\, Universität Würzburg\n\nDirac Ferm
ions in Graphene and Topological Insulators\n\nThe carbon atoms in graphen
e (Nobel Prize in Physics 2010) form a honeycomb lattice which gives rise
to many of the peculiar physical properties of this fascinating material.
Dictated by the interaction with the ions of the lattice\, the low energy
electrons in graphene have the same dispersion relation as mass-less Dirac
fermions. We will discuss interesting physical phenomena of Dirac fermion
s in graphene such as Klein tunneling\, transport through evanescent modes
\, and consequences of the spectrum on quantum computing devices based on
graphene quantum dots.\nFurthermore\, we will address another in some sens
e even richer condensed matter system that shows Dirac fermion physics: To
pological insulators (TIs) behave like usual insulators in the bulk but li
ke metals at the boundaries. This gives rise to Dirac fermions at the edge
of a TI. In nature\, TIs have been first realized in HgTe/CdTe quantum we
lls (in 2D) and later on also in 3D in BiSb\, BiSe\, as well as BiTe cryst
als. We will discuss interesting physical properties of 2D TIs where spin
and charge properties of the system are ultimately locked to each other.

n\nHidden order and other surprises in f-electron lattices\n\nHeavy fermio
ns exhibit strong correlations and variety of ordered states stemming from
strong hybridization and Kondo screening. Nature of some of these ordered
states like Hidden Order in URu2Si2 is not settled. Recent advances in lo
cal scanning spectroscopies shed a new light on these correlated states an
d reveal significant suprises in the electronics of Kondo lattices. I focu
s on the hybridization wave as the order parameter in URu2Si2 and possibly
other materials with similar band structures. I will introduce a simple p
henomenological model for the 'hidden order' transition in the heavy Fermi
on material URu2Si2. The 'hidden order' is identified as an incommensurate
\, momentum-carrying hybridization between the light hole band and the hea
vy electron band. The model is qualitatively consistent with numerous expe
rimental results obtained from e.g. neutron scattering and scanning tunnel
ing microscopy. I also will present predictions which are amenable to curr
ent experiments.

DESCRIPTION:Tobias Sikosek\, University of Münster\n\nThe resolution of a
daptive conflicts by functional promiscuity and gene duplication\n\nOngoin
g theoretical and experimental developments in the area of protein evoluti
on emphasise the importance of functionally promiscuous\, or multi-functio
nal\, ancestors and the possibility of proteins that can assume more than
one stable structural state. A recently popularised model of protein evolu
tion is the `Escape from an Adaptive Conflict' (EAC)\, a type of subfuncti
onalisation. This conflict of a single gene to adapt to more than one sele
ction pressure can lead to a certain degree of multi-functionality prior t
o a gene duplication event. After duplication\, the resulting paralogs are
thought to specialise on different sub-functions of their ancestor. Here\
, using a simple biophysical protein model and taking structural stability
as an indicator for biological activity\, we demonstrate under which cond
itions adaptive conflicts on a dual fitness landscape can be resolved by m
ultifunctionality\, gene duplication and subfunctionalisation.

n is a counterintuitive phenomenon\, in which an 'elementary' particle app
ears to break into two independent entities. A celebrated example of this
is spin-charge separation\, in which an electron's magnetic (spin) and ele
ctric (charge) degrees of freedom appear to become independent. Spin ice m
aterials such as Dy2Ti2O7 and Ho2Ti2O7 provide a rare instance of fraction
alisation in three dimensions: their elementary excitations carry a fracti
on of the magnetic moment of the microscopic spin degrees of freedom\, and
they can be thought of as magnetic monopoles. The peculiar nature of thes
e excitations leads to unique signatures in the equilibrium and response p
roperties of spin ice materials. These include unusual neutron scattering
structure factors\, dynamical arrest and long lived non-equilibrium metast
able states\, as well as a response to external magnetic fields that promo
tes spin ice as a magnetic analogue of an electrolyte. This talk reviews s
everal of these striking phenomena\, and discusses open questions and futu
re perspectives.

in a magnetic field using the Density Matrix Renormalization Group\, Beth

rameter space\, we identify a magnetized ferroquadrupolar Luttinger liquid
consisting of a quasi-condensate of bound magnon pairs. This liquid under
goes a continuous pair unbinding transition to a more conventional Lutting
er liquid region obtained by polarizing the system above the Haldane gap r
egion. This pair unbinding transition is shown to be in the Ising universa
lity class on top of a Luttinger liquid\, leading to an effective central
charge 3/2. We also revisit the nature of the partially polarized Luttinge
r liquid around and above the Uimin-Lai-Sutherland point. Our results conf
irm that this is a two-component liquid and rule out the formation of a si

DESCRIPTION:Dr. Matthias Sperl\, Institut für Materialphysik im Weltraum\
, DLR Köln\n\nGlass-Transition Singularities\n\nAt the glass transition\,
no thermodynamic anomalies or diverging length scales in static propertie
s have been\nseen so far experimentally. On the other hand\, dynamical cor
relation functions diverge at the transition and\nshow rich features over
many orders of magnitude in time. One approach to explain glassy dynamics
is the\nframework of mode-coupling theory: The equations of motion for den
sity correlation functions in a fluid are\napproximated self-consistently
and in the long-time limit yield glass- transition singularities. Such\nsi
ngularities are known from caustics in optics (e.g. seen in rainbows and c
offee mugs)\, and in fluids they\nexplain many features in glassy dynamics
.\n\nIn addition to liquid-glass transitions\, the theory predicts glass-g
lass transitions. These glass-glass\ntransitions are a consequence of the
mathematical structure of the theory\, and their experimental confirmation
\ntherefore lends credibility to the theory. The mathematical features and
dynamical predictions of the theory\nshall be demonstrated with data from
colloidal suspensions\, liquid water\, and static granular matter.\n

DESCRIPTION:Claudia Stephan\, Universität Bonn\n\nPhenomenological Aspect
s of F-Theory GUTs\n\nF-theory can be thought of the correct way to descri
be Type IIB theory with 7-branes in generic situations where the string co
upling cannot be assumed to be small. It geometrizes the variation of the
string coupling and the backreaction of the 7-branes on the ambient space
by introducing two additional auxiliary dimensions. Thus\, it is formulate
d using twelve dimensions. For string phenomenology it is very interesting
because one the one hand exceptional gauge groups are available\, which a
re highly relevant in the context of unification and are heavily exploited
in heterotic string theory\, and on the other hand the particle physics d
egrees of freedom localize on submanifolds of the compactification\, as is
the case in Type II theories with intersecting D-branes. Given this local
ization\, a considerable number of phenomenological questions can be answe
red in a so-called local model where large parts of the compactification s
pace are decoupled and particle physics essentially takes place in eight s
pace-time dimensions. I will briefly introduce the mathematical descriptio
n of the theory and then focus on local model building with explicit examp
les in the framework of SU(5) GUTs.

a method to derive the primordial power spectrum of density fluctuations i
n the framework of quantum cosmology. For this purpose\, we perform a Born
-Oppenheimer approximation to the Wheeler-DeWitt equation for an inflation
ary universe with a scalar field. In this way we first recover the scale-i
nvariant power spectrum that is found as an approximation in the simplest
inflationary models. We then obtain quantum gravitational corrections to t
his spectrum and discuss whether they lead to measurable signatures in the
CMB anisotropy spectrum.

ation times in evolutionary game dynamics - the role of selection intensit
y\n\nIn populations with a finite number of individuals\, demographic fluc
tuations play an important role. The dynamics of such finite populations a
re analyzed in the framework of stochastic evolutionary game theory. In ev
olutionary biology\, the probability that a mutant strategy spreads in the
population and takes over is an important quantity that is well understoo
d. Here\, focus is on the mean exit time such a fixation event is expected
to take (fixation time). Starting from a master equation for the distribu
tion of fixation times of\, e.g.\, a birth-death process\, one derives and
generally solves recursions for the moments. A concept that allows a deep
er insight here is weak selection. This corresponds to a perturbation theo
ry with neutral evolution as a reference\, where all strategies perform eq
ually well. Weak selection considers only small deviations from neutral ev
olution and is a highly relevant case in biology - most (point) mutations
only provide a small change in the overall reproductive success. Various n
ew aspects of the mean exit times in evolutionary games under weak selecti
on can be addressed: How do the exit times depend on the parameters of the
evolutionary game? How universal is the folklore of weak selection result
s when comparing the two most important classes of birth-death processes?
How can the counter-intuitive effect be understood that a beneficial mutat
ion can take over slower than a neutral mutation?

atic and Dynamic Fitness Landscapes: Studies from population and evolution
ary game dynamics\n\nEvolutionary dynamics can proceed on two types of fit
ness landscapes\, static or dynamic. Population movement on a static fitne
ss landscape has been studied in great detail but usually the dimensions o
f the landscape are kept to a minimum. I address the time required for pop
ulations to move in a d dimensional fitness landscape from one fitness pea
k to another. If there are multiple paths via a fitness valley or a single
ridge which is neutral then which is a faster route and when? As populati
ons move over the fitness landscape they may change the landscape itself.
To analyse such dynamic fitness landscapes I employ evolutionary game theo
ry. Traditionally evolutionary game dynamics of two players with two strat
egies is studied. These games have been used to model many biologically re
levant scenarios\, from social dilemmas in mammals to microbial diversity.
Some of these games take place between a number of individuals and not ju
st two. We generalise the important results from two player\, two strategy
games to multiplayer games. Our results hold for any game and can easily
be applied for specific cases\, e.g. public goods games or multiplayer sta
g hunts.

in ultrathin superconducting wires coupled to a diffusive metals\n\nUltr
athin superconducting wires (UTSCW) fabricated recently by the means of no
vel experimental techniques have been the subject of intense experimental
and theoretical research. When the diameter is smaller than the coherence
length of the bulk superconductor\, these systems are effectively one-dim
ensional (1D)\, since the order parameter can only vary along the parallel
direction. Interestingly\, the theory predicts the vanishing of long-rang
e order (LRO) due to strong quantum critical \nfluctuations\, a fact that
allows the use of UTSCW to address fundamental questions in Quantum Critic
al Phenomena. In this work\, we focus on UTSCW under the effect of enviro
nment-induced dissipation. Presumably\, this is a realistic situation in m
any experimental setups. Remarkably\, we show that a weak coupling to a di
ffusive metallic film can reinforce superconductivity in the wire throug
h the quench of order-parameter fl\nuctuations. We obtain the critical poi
nts and phases of the system at T=0\, and in particular\, we predict a qua
ntum phase transition towards a superconducting phase with LRO as a functi
on of the wire's superconducting stiffness and coupling parameter to the
metal. We also discuss implications for experiments.

e ich hauptsächlich auf ein weniger bekanntes aber durchaus interessantes
Thema eingehen\, nämlich auf die sogenannten Clifford-Kleinschen Raumfor
men. Das sind Mannigfaltigkeiten\, welche lokal wie ein klassisch-geometri

sere Kentnis des Universums immer nur lokal sein kann\, stellte sich somit
- schon vor der Relativitätstheorie - die Frage\, in welchem Raum wir de

DESCRIPTION:Prof. Royce K.P. Zia\, Virginia Tech\, Blacksburg\n\nTowards a
classification scheme for non-equilibrium steady states\n\nWe propose a g
eneral classification of nonequilibrium steady states in terms of their st
ationary probability distribution and the associated probability currents.
The stationary\nprobabilities can be represented graph-theoretically as d
irected Cayley trees\; closing a single loop in such a graph leads to a re
presentation of probability currents. This classification\nallows us to id
entify all choices of transition rates\, based on a master equation\, whic
h generate the same nonequilibrium steady state. We explore the implicatio
ns of this freedom\, e.g.\,\nfor entropy production\, and provide a number
of examples.\n

nIn the case of short-range (extensive) systems\, we investigate coarsenin
g\ndynamics. There we find the existence of a short-time regime where the\

equilibrium.\nThere\, we demonstrate that one can in principle measure ne

\nnegative specific heat can be found just in isolated systems\, while it
is\ngenerally recognized that a positive specific heat should always be\nm

DESCRIPTION:Natalja Strelkowa\, Imperial College\, London\n\nThe generaliz
ed repressilator model and applications of feedback control for synthetic
gene regulatory networks\n\nWe study the temporal dynamics of the generali
zed repressilator\, a network of coupled repressing genes arranged in a di
rected ring topology\, and give analytical conditions for the emergence of
a finite sequence of unstable periodic orbits that lead to reachable long
-lived oscillating transients. Such transients dominate the finite time ho
rizon dynamics that is relevant in confined\, noisy environments such as b
acterial cells\, and are therefore of interest for bioengineering and synt
hetic biology. We show that the family of unstable orbits possesses spatia
l symmetries and can also be understood in terms of traveling wave solutio
ns of kink-like topological defects. The long-lived oscillatory transients
correspond to the propagation of quasistable two-kink configurations that
unravel over a long time.\nBased on the quasi-stable periodic orbits in t
his genetic network we propose a design for a switchable and controllable
genetic oscillator. The oscillator operates around a quasi-stable periodic
orbit using the classical engineering idea of read-out based control. The
insights from the read-out based control scheme for the genetic oscillato
r lead us to the idea to implement an algorithmic controller\, which would
direct any genetic circuit to a desired state. The algorithm operates mod
el-free\, i.e. in principle it is applicable to any genetic network and th
e input information is a data matrix of measured time series from the netw
ork dynamics. The application areas for readout-based control in genetic n
etworks open a new perspective for tissue engineering\, whenever quantitat
ively and temporarily targeted intervention is required.

Why all this RNA? The transcriptome from the perspective of RNA binding pr

protein levels because processing\, transport\, translation and\ndegradat
ion of mRNA are controlled post-transcriptionally. The key\nplayers in thi
s mode of gene regulation are RNA binding proteins\n(RBPs). Their specific
substrate is the pool of cellular RNA\,\ncontaining large amounts of untr
anslated\, regulatory sequences that\nare oftentimes crucial to the develo
pment of complex multi-cellular\norganism and are linked to various human
diseases. In contrast to\ngene promoters\, the concentration of RNA regula
tory elements is not\nfixed but linked to the highly dynamic abundances of
mRNA molecules.\nTogether with the oftentimes weak specificities of RBPs
the deeper \nunderstanding of RBP:mRNA interactions requires to explicitel
y account for \ncompetition effects. In this talk I will present general f

nProjection of the structure of classical fluids to effective pair potenti
als\n\nThe presentation treats the successful projection of the structure
of classical fluids to effective pair potentials for a 2D system of super-
paramagnetic colloids under a rotating external magnetic field. Knowing th
e structure of a system in form of the radial distribution function from e
xperiments\, the aim is to find a simple pair potential that reproduces th
e pair structure. To this end\, a search algorithm was designed and implem
ented. It can seek for the right parameters of a given potential\, resulti
ng in the best fitting radial distribution function. It is shown that this
combination works well for finding the right parameters of a superpositio
n of a Lennard Jones Potential and a Yukawa Potential. This approach was e
xtended to an anisotropic (patchy) potential in an effort to reproduce ver
y unusual structures found in experiments\, such as network chains includi
ng a number of Y-junctions.\n

DESCRIPTION:Ehud Altman\, Weizmann Institute\n\nQuantized pumping and topo
logical Bose insulators\n\nSpinless bosons in a one dimensional chain at i
nteger filling can form two\ngapped phases\, the Mott and Haldane insulato
rs\, which do not break any obvious\nsymmetry.\nI will argue that the dist
inction between the two phases is protected by\nlattice inversion symmetry
.\nBreaking this symmetry gaps out the transition and leaves the critical
point\nas an isolated gapless point in the two-parameter space of the orig
inal tuning\nparameter and the symmetry breaking perturbation.\nI will sho
w that encircling this point adiabatically entails pumping of\nexactly one
boson across the Bose insulator.\nWhen multiple chains are coupled\, the
two insulating phases are no longer\nsharply distinct\, but the pumping pr
operty survives and allows to associate a\ntopological flux with gapless r
egions in the phase diagram.\nThis leads to strict constraints on the topo
logy of the phase diagram of\nsystems of quasi-one dimensional interacting
bosons.\nFinally I will use the pumping property to elucidate the topolog
ical invariant\nunderlying the Haldane phase and to discuss possible exten
sions to interacting\ntopological phases in higher dimensions.

variety of materials and systems shows complex hysteretic behavior. The
latter means that in addition to major hysteresis loops\, one finds\nmany
subloops or minor loops\, if the external field is reversed or oscillates
at some intermediate values. Well-known examples range from adsorption in
porous media to the magnetization\nof magnetic materials. Such a behavior
is traditionally described by so-called hysteresis operators\, for which t
he Preisach operator is one of the most prominent representatives.\nCorres
pondingly\, the interaction of such hysteretic systems with its environmen
t is naturally described by operator-differential equations. Despite its i
mportance the dynamics resulting\nfrom such equations is not well understo

the co-existence of infinitely many attractors for\noperator-difference o

eauty in scattering amplitudes\n\nThis talk will be on a topic related to
mathematics and (particle) physics. Scattering amplitudes in particle phys
ics are related to the probability with which a certain scattering process
occurs. The scattering amplitudes are calculable in perturbation theory.
Higher orders in the perturbative expansion are needed for precision predi
ctions for the experiments at the LHC collider. Recent progress in the cal
culation of scattering amplitudes has shown that these scattering amplitud
es have a much simpler structure than previously believed. This simplicity
is directly related to mathematical structures hiding underneath. The com
plexity of scattering amplitudes increases with the number of external leg
s and with the number of internal loops. Simplicity with respect to the nu
mber of external legs is obtained by formulating the theory not in space-t
ime\, but in twistor space instead. Simplicity with respect to the number
of internal loops is obtained by making use of the algebra of transcendent
al functions\, like the algebra of multiple poly-logarithms. Here\, partic
le physics touches the domain of the theory of motives.

matrix at the Fermi level without knowledge of the full spectrum. Since t

an the Hamiltonian-based approaches (surface versus bulk)\, it is numerica

Aalto University\, Finland\n\nComputing stationary states by message-pass
ing\n\nComputing marginals of probability distributions (magnetizations\,
spin-spin correlations\netc) is an important problem in statistical physic
s of disordered systems and many \nother fields. In decision problems one
typically wants to estimate the likelihood\nthat a single variable takes a
given value\, given the interactions with all the\nother variables\, then
fix that variable to its most likely value\, and so estimate the\nmost li
kely configuration of all the variables. An important technical applicatio
n\nis decoding in communication systems\, where the task is to estimate th
e code word\nmost likely to have been sent from the recieved signal and wh
at one knows about the\nchannel.\n\nIn principle one can compute the margi
nals of any Markov chain by Monte Carlo\, but\nsuch methods are inherently
slow for large systems. Over the last decade there has \ntherefore been i
ntense interest in approximate methods to compute marginals of probability
\ndistributions deterministically (the cavity method\, Belief Propagation
\, iterative decoding)\,\nwhich overall work by nodes (representing variab
les) sending messages between each other\nand so collectively yield someti
mes exact and often very good estimates of the marginals. In \nthe languag
e of physics all these methods compute a variational ansatz of the Boltzma
nn-Gibbs \nfree energy of an equilibrium statistical mechanical system whe
re the messages are related to \nLagrange multipliers.\n\nI will describe
recent work on extending message-passing from computing the stationary\nst
ates of Markov chains obeying detailed balance to Markov chains which do n
ot. This\n"dynamic cavity method" works to some extent\, and in particular
outperforms dynamic\nmean-field methods on standard kinetic (non-equilibr
ium) Ising systems. \n\nThis is joint work with Hamed Mahmoudi (2011a-c)\,

Towards microscopic quantum gravity\n\nThe Einstein – Hilbert action of
General Relativity is not fit to describe quantum fluctuations of the metr
ics as it does not restrict either large fluctuations or fast varying ones
. Therefore\, it defines at best an effective theory which\, of course\, i
s tremendously successful. A hint how to construct a true and well defined
`microscopic’ gravitation theory is provided by the fact that there are
fermions in Nature. Fermions require that the field variables to be used
are the vierbein and the Lorentz spin connection. This leads to Cartan’s
formulation of General Relativity\, but field fluctuations are not restri
cted there either because none of the possible general covariant action te
rms is sign-definite. A way out is to present the vierbein as a bilinear
"current" of more fundamental fermion (spinor) fields. Path integrals over
Grassmann variables are well defined for whatever sign of the fermion act
ion. We suggest that in the ultraviolet limit quantum gravity possesses on
ly spinor and gauge field degrees of freedom\, like in the Standard Model.
The theory can be easily regularized by putting it on a space lattice. It
is explicitly invariant under local Lorentz transformations and\, in the
continuum limit\, under diffeomorphisms. It is a theory that is well-behav
ed at small distances\, and quantum fluctuations are well defined. We disc
uss how to check if Newton’s law is reproduced in the infrared limit in
the world with fluctuating metrics. Our formulation of quantum gravity all
ows its unification with the Standard Model\, and that will be also briefl
y discussed.

DESCRIPTION:Hendrik Bluhm\, RWTH Aachen\n\nCoherence and coupling of GaAs
two-electron spin qubits\n\nSemiconductor spin qubits are promising candid
ates for quantum computation because of their slow decoherence and potenti
al for scalability. All fundamental single qubit operations have been demo
nstrated for GaAs-based spin qubits\, but they suffer from decoherence due
to hyperfine coupling to nuclear spins. We have developed effective techn
iques to mitigate this decoherence channel for two-electron spin qubits in
double quantum dots.\n\nBy repeatedly inverting the qubit in a way that d
ecouples its evolution from the fluctuations of the nuclear spin bath\, it
s coherence time can be extended to more than 200 ms\, two orders of magni
tude longer than previously shown. Alternatively\, operating the qubit as
a feedback loop that controls the nuclear bath also enhances the coherence
time and enables universal single qubit control with greatly improved gat
e fidelities.\n\nHaving achieved good single qubit control\, a fundamental
milestones is to couple qubits in order to generate entanglement. We demo
nstrate a protocol to implement two-qubit gates using the Coulomb interact
ion between adjacent double dots while decoupling both qubits from slow el
ectrical fluctuations. These results indicate that Bell states can be crea
ted with sufficient fidelity to demonstrate entanglement.

ubiquitous in dynamical systems. Its impact on the dynamics can be quite
versatile\, ranging from bad signal-to-noise ratios to qualitatively new p
henomena such as oscillations\nof populations\, which would be absent with
out noise. Here "noise" stands for stochastic fluctuations of various orig
in. Of particular interest are stochastic fluctuations in the context\nof
biology. What is their role in evolutionary processes or in the living cel
l as the basic unit of life? We shall focus on a dynamical unit which cons
ists of only two species\ninteracting in a non-linear way. This unit may b
e regarded as a coarse-grained description of a genetic circuit. For compa
rison we shall first discuss the unit in a deterministic\ndescription and
then turn to a fully stochastic one. There we shall unravel the effect of
demographic fluctuations and fluctuations in the reaction times. The power
spectrum will show\nwhich source of stochastic behavior is dominant. We s

of topological insulators (TIs) generated a large interest in the physics
community during the past years. This new state of mater is characterized
by conducting Dirac type surface states while the bulk of the material re
mains insulating. These surface states have been observed so far in\, e.g.
\, Bi2Te3\, Bi2Se3 and Sb2Te3. These materials do however exhibit large de
fect densities paired with low arrier mobilities. So far this prevented tr
ansport studies in the quantum Hall regime of 3D TIs. Recently\, however\,
we succeeded in using strained bulk HgTe as 3D TI. This enabled us to mea
sure the quantum Hall effect from the 3D TI surface state in transport exp
eriments. The samples were fabricated by molecular beam epitaxy of HgTe la
yers on top of CdTe substrates. The strain induced by the lattice mismatch
between HgTe and CdTe results in opening a gap in the HgTe band structure
which makes the TI state observable.

nGapped and gapless topological phases in condensed matter systems\n\nOne
of the defining properties of topological insulators and superconductors\,
which are topological phases with a full gap in the bulk\, is the appeara
nce of topologically protected zero-energy surface or edge states\, some o
f which are of Majorana type. Boundary modes of topological nature can als
o occur in (semi-)metallic systems that exhibit topologically stable Fermi
surfaces or in nodal superconductors with non-trivial topology. For insta
nce\, dispersionless boundary states exist on the (110) surface of a d_{x^
2-y^2}-wave superconductor (e.g.\, in high-temperature superconductors)\,
or at the zig-zag edge in graphene. In this talk I present a classificatio
n of both gapped and gapless topological phases in terms of symmetry and s
patial dimension. As a consequence of the non-trivial bulk topology all of
these systems exhibit topologically stable surface states\, which are eit
her dispersionless or show a linear dispersion as a function of edge or su
rface momentum. As a concrete example\, superconductors without inversion
symmetry are discussed in detail. Three different types of topologically p
rotected surface states are identified in these systems\, namely Kramers-d
egenerate Majorana modes\, arc surface states\, and surface flat bands\, w
hose stability is guaranteed by the conservation of three different types
of topological invariants. I examine the signatures of the Majorana modes\
, the arc surface states and the zero-energy surface flat bands in tunneli

DESCRIPTION:Mario Kieburg\, Stony Brook University\n\nRandom Matrix Theory
for the Wilson-Dirac operator\n\nSince the 90's random matrix theory (RMT
) was successfully applied to quantum chromodynamics (QCD). In particular
the low lying spectrum of the Dirac operator can be exactly mapped to chir
al RMT. The same applies to lattice QCD. One particular modification of th
e Dirac operator on the lattice is the one introduced by Wilson. This modi
fication explicitly breaks chiral symmetry even though the quark masses ar
e set to zero. Recently a random matrix model was introduced which lies in
the same universality class as the Wilson-Dirac operator. The aim is to i
nvestigate the lattice artifacts in data of lattice simulations with RMT a
s strongly simplified model. Quite recently we derived the joint probabili
ty density and\, in particular\, the level density of the so called Wilson
random matrix ensemble. I will present these new results in my talk. More
over I will show that the Wilson random matrix ensemble lies in a new clas
s of ensembles related to a mixing of orthogonal and skew-orthogonal polyn
omials. Hence it is a new kind of interpolations between universality clas
ses.

Twitching Motility of Bacteria\n\nBacteria perform various kinds of motion
based on a variety of molecular mechanisms. We are studying the twitching
motility of bacteria such as Neisseria gonorrhoeae\, which use so called
type IV pili to propel themselves over surfaces. Pili are long polymeric s
tructures given out of the bacterial body which adhere to the surface and
then retract\, thus pulling the cell body. Recent experiments performed on
these bacteria suggest that several pili co-operate in bacterial motion a
nd that their co-ordination may be based on a tug-of-war between pili pull
ing in different directions. We are studying the Twitching Motility of bac
teria\, by a stochastic tug-of-war model\, with a strong connection\nto ex
periments. The system is modeled by taking into consideration the stochast
ic nature of different processes. We describe the system as a tug-of-war b
etween the pili\, pulling a bacterium in different direction\, to test whe
ther this idea\, together with known properties of individual pili can exp
lain the observed patterns of bacterial motion.\n

interaction\npotentials that decay slower than 1/r^d at large distances r
in\nd dimensions. Common examples are self-gravitating systems\,\nnon-neut
ral plasmas\, dipolar ferroelectrics and ferromagnets\, etc.\nLong-range i
nteracting systems are non-additive. This leads to unusual\nproperties\, b
oth thermodynamic (e.g.\, negative microcanonical specific\nheat\, ensembl
e inequivalence) and dynamic (e.g.\, slow relaxation\,\nbreaking of ergodi
city). After a brief review\, I will discuss a\nparadigmatic example\, the
Hamiltonian Mean-Field model\, involving XY\nspins with mean-field intera
ctions. For this model\, relaxation of some\ninitial states towards equili
brium proceeds through intermediate\nquasistationary states characterized
by a slow variation of\nmacroscopic observables over time. The life time o
f these states\ndiverges with the system size. These states are observed i
n\ndeterministic microcanonical evolution within a certain energy\ninterva
l. Our recent study suggests that in presence of noise\,\nquasistationary
states occur only as a crossover phenomenon depending\non the relative mag
nitudes of two timescales set by the system size\nand the level of noise i
n the evolution. Our proposed scaling form for\nthe relaxation time to equ
ilibrium is verified in simulations by a\nscheme of piecewise deterministi

Pattern formation in growing sandpiles\n\nBeautiful spatial patterns can b
e formed in a cellular automaton known as Abelian Sandpile Model (ASM)\, b
y dropping large N number of particles at a single site and then redistrib
uting them according to ASM toppling rules. The patterns are usually compo
sed of large number of macroscopic regions with sharp boundaries\, all of
which grow at the same rate with N\, keeping the overall shape unchanged.
This proportionate growth makes the patterns important in the context of b
iology where such ability to adapt to size variations is common in growing
animals. The patterns are also a good example of analytically tractable c
omplex structures generated using simple local rules. I will present exact
characterization of few asymptotic (N→∞) patterns on two dimensional
lattices\, which involve some intriguing connection to the mathematics of
discrete analytic functions. I will also discuss robustness of the pattern

earth materials is a subject of\ngeneral interest and wide application: f
rom seismologists studying\nearthquakes to engineers studying the strength
of materials. Therefore\nmany laboratory experiments have been carried ou
t to investigate the\nresponse of rocks to an applied differential stress\
, often using\nacoustic emissions (AE) to track intermittent crack growth
inside the\nrock specimen prior to system-sized sample failure. Under a co
nstant\napplied stress in double-torsion tensile tests with a guide groove
and a\nsingle dominant crack\, independent observations of the stress int
ensity\nfactor and crack growth velocity imply the size of the largest (su
b-)\ncritical crack grows with time t according to an inverse power-law. \
nA similar law holds for the mean crack length in a\npopulation of micro-c
racks growing under compressional stress with no\npre-defined fault plane\
, often treated using mean field models that\nignore localisation of damag
e clearly seen in the experiments. Here I\npresent a new hypothesis for th

its parameters inferred from\nanalysis of the AE rate and the spatial clus

both technology and \nnatural philosophy.\nIt is true that the steam engin
e for the conversion of heat \ninto work existed before thermodynamics was
developed as a \nbranch of physics. However\, the systematic theory impro
ved \nthe conversion process\, and it succeeded in developing other \nproc
esses essential to modern life\, notably refrigeration and \nrectification
. So\, altogether thermodynamics has provided \nhumanity with cheap energy
\, and cheap fuel\, - consequently \nwith cheap\, and abundant\, and unspo

ctancy \nincrease beyond anything people could possibly have imagined \n20
0 years ago. \nAt the same time thermodynamics has uncovered the precariou

processes on earth\, including life. The competition of those \nintentions
is described by the doctrine of energy and entropy \nin thermodynamics\;
energy tends to force a system into one \nsingle state\, and entropy tends
to spread the system evenly \nover all possible states. These competing t

We demonstrate how this\nbunching phenomena can be rigorously described us

we introduce an ultrametric\ndistance between periodic orbits and organiz

DESCRIPTION:Dr. Mark Oliver Goerbig\, Universite Paris Sud\n\nGraphene Fra
ctional Quantum Hall Effect and Internal Symmetries\n\nA milestone in grap
hene research was the 2005 discovery of an \ninteger quantum Hall effect.
In contrast to its manifestation \nin conventional two-dimensional (2D) el
ectron systems\, such \nas in semiconductor heterostructures\, the graphen
e quantum \nHall effect reflects the "ultra-relativistic" character of \nt
he underlying carriers\, via a particular sequence of plateaus \nin the tr
ansverse Hall resistance.\n\nIn view of the fractional cousin of the integ
er quantum Hall \neffect in 2D electron systems\, one may thus naturally a
sk the \nquestion about a fractional quantum Hall effect in graphene. \nDo
es it also reflect the ultra-relativistic character of the \ncharge carrie
rs? To what extent is it different from the \nfractional quantum Hall effe
ct in (non-relativistic) \nsemiconductor heterostructures? Many of these q
uestions remain \nopen from an experimental point of view\, although some
\nfractional states have recently been observed in transport \nand spectro
scopic measurements.\n\nThis talk aims at a theoretical perspective on the
fractional \nquantum Hall effect in graphene\, namely in view of its \nmu
lti-component character due to the fourfold spin-valley \ndegeneracy\, whi
ch gives rise to an internal SU(4) symmetry \nand that is approximately re
spected by the underlying \nelectron-electron interactions. This theoretic
al perspective \nwill be confronted with recent experimental advances.\n

proach to quantum Brownian motion\n\nThis talk concerns the rigorous deriv
ation of diffusion\, thermalization and decoherence in simple quantum syst
ems: a spin or a particle interacting with phonons.\nOur approach takes th
e Markovian description (Pauli master equation or quantum Boltzmann equati
on) as a starting point. However\, since such a Markovian description is o
nly valid in a\ncertain scaling limit (vanishing coupling constant and lon
g time)\, we develop an expansion around the Markovian description to cont
rol the behavior at finite coupling constant. This\nexpansion consists of
a controlled renormalization group flow with Brownian motion as the fix-p
oint solution.\n\nThe long-range nature of the velocity-velocity correlati
on function is an example of a physical quantity that is not described cor
rectly within the Markovian description (cfr. Alder-Wainwright)\, but that
is captured by our approach.

DESCRIPTION:Kai P. Schmidt\, TU Dortmund\n\nEffective models for spin liqu
id phases in Hubbard models\n\nThe Hubbard model is one of the most studie
d microscopic models in condensed matter physics. It describes on a very s
imple level the interplay between the kinetics and the Coulomb interaction
of electrons in solid state systems. Generically\, one expects at half fi
lling a metallic phase for large kinetics while a Mott insulator is presen
t for large interactions. In most cases the Mott phase shows additionally
long-range spin order\, since the Hubbard model can be mapped to a Heisenb
erg model in the strong-coupling limit. A direct transition between the me
tal and the long-range ordered Mott insulator was considered to be the sta
ndard case for a long time.\n\nBut in recent years there are more and more
evidences that especially on frustrated lattices there is the possibility
of exotic and insulating intermediate phases without long range order. It
is therefore an obviously relevant question what kind of effective low-en
ergy theory describes such Mott phases and how to derive them. This is par
ticular complicated when the spin liquid is located close to the metal-ins
ulator transition as for the recently discovered spin liquid of the Hubbar
d model on the honeycomb lattice. In this talk we discuss these issues for
the Mott phase of the Hubbard model on the triangular and on the honeycom

show ordered phases where the order parameter is difficult to identify. Th
ese systems are characterized by the non-Kramers configuration where the n
umber of f -electrons per site is even. We have studied generalized Kondo
lattice models for such non-Kramers systems\, and have found a new kind of
orders by combining the dynamical mean-field theory and the continuous-ti
me quantum Monte Carlo calculation. In the case of two-channel Kondo latti
ce with two conduction electrons per site\, for example\, a strange order
emerges where the one-body quantities such as magnetization and charge den
sity remain the same as in the high- temperature phase. The (hidden) order
parameter Ψ at each site is given by Ψ = ⟨S · (s1 − s2)⟩ where S
is the localized pseudo spin and si (i = 1\, 2) is the pseudo spin of con
duction channel i at the same site. This order can be interpreted as itine
rant higher multipoles of electrons\, and also as analogue of the composit
e superconducting order with odd frequency pairing amplitude. We also disc
uss other exotic orders and implication of our results in actual f-electro

n. One has to distinguish between\ntwo cases: (I) when the variance of the

DESCRIPTION:Thomas Quella\, Universität zu Köln\n\nConformal superspace
sigma-models\n\nMany physical phenomena such as quark confinement and the
fractional quantum Hall effect arise at strong coupling\, thus making a pe

ertheless be found which involves effective degrees of freedom - different
from the fundamental ones and adapted to the specific situation at hand.
In such a situation one would speak about a duality. In 1+1 or 2 dimension
s there is a wealth of dualities\, some of which are extremely well unders
tood. In higher dimensions\, the best known duality is the celebrated AdS/
CFT correspondence\, a concrete realization of the holographic principle.\
n\nThe "conformal superspace sigma-models" featuring in the title are a sp
ecial class of strongly coupled supersymmetric 2D quantum field theories w
hich naturally arise in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence (but als
o in the theory of disordered systems). As will be discussed\, the underly
ing supergeometry allows for the derivation of exact partition functions b
ut it also leads to a few unusual peculiarities. As an application\, we co
nclude with arguments in favor of a supersymmetric duality which generaliz
es the well-known bosonization of a Luttinger liquid.

obability (1-α/2)\n [voter dynamics]\, but with probability α both indiv
iduals just\n exchange opinions without attaining a consensus [simple excl
usion process].\n Note that -+ domain wall does not induce any configurati
onal change. When\n α < 1\, the whole population eventually reaches a ful
l consensus. The\n way how the consensus is reached is described by decayi
ng behavior of the\n domain wall density ρ. For any α < 1\, ρ is found
to show a\n power-law decay behavior. Quite interestingly\, however\, the
exponent varies\n continuously with α\, from 0.5 (pure voter dynamics) to
0 (ASEP case).\n These results are obtained from both Monte-Carlo simulat

DESCRIPTION:Simon Dettmer\, University of Cologne\n\nConvergence of the Pl
efka Expansion in 1D\n\nThe Plefka expansion is a method for approximately
analyzing complicated probabilistic systems such as those consisting of m
any interacting particles. In principle\, it consists of an expansion in t
he interaction strength around the non-interacting case. Important applic
ations are the calculation of expectation values of observables as well as
the problem of statistical inference encountered for example in the inver
se Ising problem. In order to assess the applicability of the expansion
to a specific system\, it is important to know the radius of convergence.
Unfortunately\, this radius is only known for very few systems\, the Sherr
ington-Kirkpatrick model of a spin glass being the most prominent one. Thi
s talk will introduce the general concept of the Plefka expansion applied
to the Ising model as well as explicitly derive the radius of convergence
for the 1D ferromagnet.

In this colloquium one aspect of the NK-model\, which is a biologically m

s aspect is tthe choice of the neighborhood describing the interaction bet
ween mutations at different genetic loci. It is shown by simulation that\,

\n\nThe nature of fluctuations in human musical rhythms\n\nAlthough human
musical performances represent one of the most valuable achievements of ma
nkind\, the best musicians perform imperfectly. Musical rhythms are not en
tirely accurate and thus\ninevitably deviate from the ideal beat pattern.
Nevertheless\, computer generated perfect beat patterns are frequently dev
alued by listeners due to a perceived lack of\nhuman touch. Professional a
udio editing software therefore offers a humanizing feature which artifici
ally generates rhythmic fluctuations. However\, the built-in humanizing un
its are\nessentially random number generators producing only simple uncorr
elated fluctuations. The nature of temporal fluctuations in complex human
musical rhythms has never been scrutinized as\nyet. Here\, I will show tha
t long-range correlations are an inevitable natural companion of both simp
le and complex human rhythmic performances. Moreover\, it will be demonstr
ated that\nlisteners strongly prefer long-range correlated fluctuations in
musical rhythms. Thus\, the favorable fluctuation type for humanizing int
erbeat intervals coincides with the one\ngenerically inherent in human mus

l for power grid operation\n\nPower grids\, which form the cornerstone our
technical infrastructure\, will undergo a revolutionary change in the upc
oming decades driven by the advancement of renewable energy sources. Large
centralized power plants are put out of operation in favor of many small\
, distributed and potentially fluctuating generators. To face this enormou
s challenge for the reliable operation of the power grid\, both the struct
ure and control of the grid must undergo a radical change. This developmen
t must be supported by a great advancement of our theoretic understanding
of complex networked systems.\n\nIn this talk I discuss the collective dyn
amics of power grids using an idealized oscillator model that model grid d
ynamics on coarse scales. This model bridges the gap between abstract larg
e-scale\, basically structural network models from physics on the one hand
and detailed simulations of small electric engineering systems on the oth
er. I analyze self-organized synchronization of the grid depending on the
network topology and study the impact of dynamical perturbations and the i
nfluence of topological changes. I find that\, contrary to common intui
tion\, the addition of new transmission lines may reduce the overall grid
capacity and explain this phenomenon by geometric frustration in the oscil
lator model. \n

na. \nThen I discuss how a magnetic field induces one-dimensional edge cha
nnels when the two-dimensional surface states of three-dimensional topolog

zed even in situations\, where the theta-term characteristic of the bulk a
nd the associated surface Hall conductivities are not quantized due to the
breaking of time-reversal symmetry. The quantization arises as the theta-
term changes by integer multiples along a loop around n edge channels. Mod
el calculations show how an interplay of orbital and Zeeman effects leads
to quantum Hall transitions\, where channels get redistributed along the e
dges of the crystal. The network of edges opens new possibilities to inves

Cosmology background\n\nWe introduce scalar perturbations in a homogeneou
s and isotropic universe with compact spatial sections filled with a massi
ve scalar field. The gauge freedom is then almost entirely removed by impo
sing two different sets of gauge-fixing conditions\, which lead to consist
ent results. We quantize completely the model by combining a polymer repre
sentation for the homogeneous degrees of freedom and a Fock representation
for the perturbations. Criteria of symmetry and unitary dynamics determin
e the latter uniquely. We also present an equivalent quantization in terms
of gauge-invariant variables. Moreover\, we propose a quantum implementat
ion of the Hamiltonian constraint whose solutions are totally characterize
d by their initial value on the minimum-volume section.

part of my contribution\, I shall expound the relevance of the Kepler and
Halley’s riddle\, better known as the starry-dark-sky paradox\, which ha
s been later discussed and formalized by Olbers in the 19th century. In th
e second part\, I shall clarify which elements of Kant’s cosmology can b
e read as an answer to this riddle\, involving a specific hierarchical str
ucture of the universe\, which is represented as an expanding sphere. In o

by Sir William Herschel on Kant’s Critical writings on natural science
and theory of matter\, as well as to the development of Kant’s transcend
ental philosophy that provided useful tools in order to clarify and solve
paradoxes and dilemmas of natural science.

e thermodynamic equilibrium in the thermodynamic limit of infinite volume
cannot be described by density matrices in vacuum Fock space because of th
eir everywhere finite energy density. In the framework of algebraic quantu
m field theory on Minkowski spacetime\, such states can be readily describ
ed as expectation functionals with certain analyticity properties. In curv
ed spacetimes\, a globally defined temperature cannot generally be expecte

d concept of local thermal equilibrium states and discusses problems that
arise even for the free scalar field in simple spacetime models.

g the Sensitivities of future Weak Lensing Surveys on cosmological Paramet
ers\n\nWeak gravitational lensing will be one of the key methods in the fu
ture of\ncosmology\, for the determination of cosmological parameters. Its
way of\nextracting statistical information from the formation of cosmic\n
structures\, poses a hybrid between the methods applied to the CMB and the
\nones applied to the matter density contrast\, in the mathematical\ndescr
iption. Since the deflection of light by mass through its gravity\,\ndoes
not distinguish between baryonic and dark matter\, an increased\nsensitivi
ty towards the latter one is expected\, compared to the\ntraditional sourc
es of information\, on a first point of view. Moreover\nthrough the applic
ation of tomographic binning in redshift space\, it is\nalso expected that
weak lensing will offer profound insights into the late\ntime evolution o
f cosmic structures\, therefore allowing for a closer\ndetermination of pa
rameters characterizing dark energy and neutrinos. At\nthe moment several
weak lensing surveys are planned. Among them the Large\nSynoptic Survey Te
lescope and the Euclid space probe. It is therefore\nimportant to a priori
evaluate their sensitivities on the cosmological\nparameters of interest.
A very nice way of doing this is through the\nFisher matrix method.

without time-reversal symmetry\n\nWe study the superconducting proximity
effect in a quantum wire with\nbroken time-reversal (TR) symmetry connecte
d to a superconductor. We\nconsider the situation of a strong TR-symmetry
breaking\, so that\nCooper pairs entering the wire from the superconductor
are immediately\ndestroyed. Nevertheless\, some traces of the proximity e
ffect survive:\nfor example\, the local electronic density of states (LDOS
) is\ninfluenced by the proximity to the superconductor\, provided that\nl
ocalization effects are taken into account. With the help of the\nsupersym
metric sigma model\, we calculate the average LDOS in such a\nsystem. The
LDOS in the wire is strongly modified close to the\ninterface with the sup
erconductor at energies near the Fermi\nlevel. The relevant distances from
the interface are of the order of\nthe localization length\, and the size
of the energy window around the\nFermi level is of the order of the mean
level spacing at the\nlocalization length. Remarkably\, the sign of the ef
fect is sensitive\nto the way the TR symmetry is broken: In the spin-symme
tric case\n(orbital magnetic field)\, the LDOS is depleted near the Fermi
energy\,\nwhereas for the broken spin symmetry (magnetic impurities)\, the
LDOS\nat the Fermi energy is enhanced.

analogue gravity models for semi-classical\nquantum gravity\, demonstrati
ng that certain effects predicted within\nquantum field theory in curved s

\n\nPredicting evolutionary change using statistical physics\n\nThe spread
ing of discrete entities occurs in many complex systems\, and controls for
instance the speed of chemical reactions\, species invasions\, epidemic o
utbreaks or biological\nadaptation. Unless population are well-mixed (li
ke bacteria in a shaken test tube)\, the spreading dynamics not only depe
nds on reaction rates but also on the dispersal behavior of the\nspecies.
Spreading at a constant speed is generally predicted when dispersal is s
ufficiently short-ranged. I present a recent exactly solvable model for th
is wave-like spread and the\nassociated genealogical trees\, which are gen
erated by a coalescent process with frequent multiple mergers. Spreading
in the presence of rare long-range dispersal (e.g. triggered by\naviatio
n) has been unresolved so far: While it is clear that even rare long-rang
e jumps can lead to a drastic speedup\, it has been difficult to quantify
the ensuing stochastic growth\nprocess. I present a simple self-consiste
nt argument supported by simulations that accurately predicts the asympto
tic spreading dynamics for fat-tailed jump distributions. I discuss our
\nresults in the light of population genetics\, and show how they can be u

evolutionary process. Traditional population genetics models assume\nthat
adaptation\, i.e. change for the better\, is rare. However\, adaptive evo
lution is pervasive in many organisms and other models are needed to study
their evolution. I will show that\nmany models of asexual adaptive evolut
ion give rise to a universal genealogical process known as Bolthausen-Szni
tman coalescent. The Bolthausen-Sznitman coalescent\, first described in\n
spin-glass physics\, makes concrete predictions for patterns of genetic di
versity that can be compared against data and used for inference. I will c
lose by discussing how these results\nfor asexual evolution carry over to
sexual populations.

ridging Statistical Physics and Nonlinear Dynamics of Networks\n\nNetworks
of interacting units dominate our everyday lives\, from the\ndynamics of
neural circuits that control our behaviors to the power\ngrids that provid
e us with electric energy. Over the last 15 years\,\nresearchers furthered
our understanding of complex networks by analyzing\ntheir connectivity st
ructure and collective dynamics\, mostly using\nperspectives from either g
raph theory\, statistical physics or nonlinear\ndynamics. Recent progress
shows that features from the statistical physics and the\nnonlinear dynami
cs of networks are often intimately related\; I discuss\ntwo main examples
: Many different neural circuits exhibit\nspatio-temporal activity patter
ns\, but the dynamic origin of such\npatterns remains unknown. I link the
nonlinear deterministic dynamics of\nsuch systems to a statistical descrip
tion. The results indicate that\nnon-additive coupling\, recently found in
neuro-physiological\nexperiments\, enable the generation of spike pattern
s in circuits\nconsistent with anatomy. In a second example\, I identify a
type of percolation transition that\nwas unknown so far. Analyzing the mi
croscopic dynamics of link additions\nreveals that the transition is conti
nuous in the thermodynamics limit\nbut discontinuous features prevail even
for macroscopic finite systems.\nFinally\, I briefly mention a new concep
t of universal computation via\nswitching in complex networks of states an
d the intriguing\nself-organized dynamics of power grids.

system as a network means reducing it to set of discrete nodes\nconnected

ut preserves the complex pattern of interactions among the system's consti

complex systems\nin which the interactions between constituents give rise
to emergent properties and phenomena.\nHere\, the hope is that a properly
constructed network model can simplify the system such\nthat these propert
ies and phenomena can be understood analytically. In this talk I \nillust
rate this approach by several short examples from my work and a study on t
he\nstability of ecological food webs that I present in greater detail. I

of the\nconductance on gate voltage\, magnetic field\, temperature\, sour

ruses have comprised one of the two fundamental types of organisms through
out the course of evolution\, and so the entire history of life is a story
of virus-host arms race and cooperation. The genomic and biological dive
rsity of viruses is still under-appreciated as illustrated by the recent d
iscovery of giant viruses and their own distinct mobilomes. All cellular l
ife forms have evolved complex\, multilayer systems of antivirus defense t
hat account for a substantial portion of the genome even in simple prokary
otes. These diverse defense systems function on one of the three general p
rinciples: i) innate\, non-specific immunity\; ii) adaptive\, specific imm
unity\; iii) programmed cell suicide or dormancy induced by infection. Co
mparative genomic analysis shows that in bacterial and archaeal genomes\,
genes encoding innate and adaptive immune systems are invariably associate
d with genes encoding toxin-antitoxin systems that induce dormancy or suic
ide. Hence the immunity-dormancy/suicide coupling hypothesis according to
which antivirus response in prokaryotes involves key decision-making steps
when the cell chooses the path to follow by sensing the course of virus i
nfection. The recently discovered CRISPR-Cas system of adaptive immunity p
resents a clear-cut case of an environmental sensor that evolves under the
Lamarckian evolutionary paradigm. I will present results of mathematical
modeling that identify the conditions under which Lamarckian evolution is

ses of a number of well-known mathematical models for genetic mutations. I
n these models\, the genome is represented by a vertex of the n-dimensiona
l binary hypercube\, for some n\, a mutation involves the flipping of a si
ngle bit\, and each vertex is assigned a real number\, called its fitness\
, according to some rules. The study of such models has a long tradition\,
both in mathematical biology and in statistical physics\, where the same
models arise in the study of spin glasses. The field has been recently gal
vanised by the increasing availability of empirical genetic data. In this
context\, Weinreich and others introduced the notion of an accessible evol

reasing or\, in the case of spin glasses\, along which energy is monotonic
ally decreasing. Our main results resolve open questions about three such
models\, which in the biophysics literature are known as House of Cards (H
oC)\, Constrained House of \nCards (CHoC) and Rough Mount Fuji (RMF). We p
rove that the probability of there being at least one accessible path acro
ss the directed n-hypercube tends\, in the case of HoC and CHoC respective
ly\, \nto 0 and 1\, as n tends to infinity. In the case of RMF\, we prove
that the probability of accessible \npaths existing tends to 1 for a wide

c80). For accurate chromosome segregation\, the two\nchromosomes are pulle
d apart in the opposite directions by two sets of\n"nano-hooks"\, formed b
y microtubules (MTs)\, that are inserted into these\nrings. An externally
applied tension can lead to detachment of the hooks\nfrom the ring\; the m
ean lifetime of such an attachment is essentially a\nmean first-passage ti
me. Recent pioneering in-vitro experiments with\nreconstituted nano hook-
ring device established that the mean lifetimes of\nsuch attachments vary
non-monotonically with increasing tension. In this\ntalk I'll explain the
counter-intuitive stabilization of the attachments by\nsmall tension with
a unified model that we have developed very\nrecently. The catch-bond-lik

-dependence of (i) the potential landscape and\n(ii) MT depolymerization r

der) and Nordtvedt’s quantitative version of the Schiff’s conjecture
– a relation between the violations of the universality of free fall and
deviations from the gravitational redshift. However\, these results do no
t necessarily extend to quantum mechanics. Various semiclassical extension
s of the mass-energy equivalence principle will be presented that correspo
nd to theories in which the free fall and/or the time dilation effects are
modified in the presence of quantum effects. These theories in general vi
olate Schiff’s conjecture\, yet\, in the scenario considered by Nordtved

“paradox” and derive a quantum version of the Nordtvedt’s relation
from a fully quantum extension of the mass-energy equivalence principle. I

\nMathematical perspectives on the evolution of aging\n\nIt is a challenge
to explain biological phenomena that appear to arise from the complex\nin
teraction of many genes in response to natural selection acting through th
e mechanisms of\nmutation and recombination. The proportions of a large po
pulation that have various\ngenotypes form a probability measure on the sp
ace of possible genotypes and\, under suitable\nassumptions\, it is reason
able to model this probability measure as evolving in time according\nto a
relativelysimple\, continuous-time\, measure-valued dynamical system. I w
ill explore the\nstructure of this dynamical system and its equilibria wit
h a view to shedding light on\nevolutionary explanations of the similar pa
tterns of senescence and mortality seen in many\nmulti-cellular organisms.
In particular\, I will point out how the non-linear nature of the\ndynami
cal system causes problems with a popular explanation of the Gompertz-Make
ham\nmortality curve and requires a reformulation of Haldane's Principle\,
one of the cornerstones of\nthe theory of mutation accumulation. This is
joint work with David Steinsaltz (Oxford)\nand Kenneth W. Wachter (Berkele

model in an open\nsystem where the total mass is not conserved due to infl

\, as in the turbulence phenomena.\nThese properties are established analy
tically in the absence of fragmentation\nand numerically for non-zero frag

reflection symmetry breaking in the Bose-Einstein condensate of spin waves
\n\nIn 2006 the phenomenon of Bose-Einstein condensation at room temperatu
re was discovered in a ferromagnet YIG (Yttrium-Iron garnet) by the group
of experimenters from University of\nMünster leaded by S. Demokritov. Th
ey also presented a theoretical explanation of their experiment. In my tal
k I will first describe this experiment and its explanation. Recently (Jun
e\n2012) the same group discovered a low-contrast interference pattern in
the intensity of Brillouin light scattering. The spectrum of spin waves in
a thin film of YIG has two minima at\nfinite values of momentum + Q and -
Q. The interference demonstrates that the two condensates have very differ
ent densities despite complete symmetry of the system to space inversion.
In\nour work (Fuxiang Li\, W.M. Saslow and V.L. P.) we propose a theory ex
plaining why and how this symmetry is violated. Our theory predicts that i
n thinner films it is possible to observe a\nsymmetric state of condensate
s. The transition between these two states can be driven by magnetic field
. The theory also predicts a new type of the collective oscillations. The
dipolar\ninteraction plays a special role trapping the sum of the two cond
ensate phases at the values 0 or pi. Transition between these two states i
s possible in non-symmetric phase and can be\nobserved as a cusp in the pl
ot of contrast vs. magnetic field.\n

DESCRIPTION:Prof. Erik Verlinde\, University of Amsterdam\n\nTowards an En
tropic Theory for Gravity\, Dark Energy and Dark Matter\n\nDevelopments in
string theory and black hole physics indicate that gravity should be view
ed as an emergent phenomenon that is derived from an underlying microscopi
c description. Following these insights I illuminate the basic mechanisms
responsible for the emergence of gravity. I will argue that space time\,
matter and gravity originate from a highly entangled quantum mechanical s
ystem\, whose energy contains the dark energy. Gravity\, or rather inertia
\, appears as an adiabatic reaction force\, while non-adiabatic correction
s due to slow relaxation processes lead to the phenomena attributed to dar
k matter. These considerations lead to a universal formula for the dark
matter distribution which explains the observed velocity profiles for all
types of galaxies and galaxy clusters and agrees with the cosmic dark matt

\nThe assignment of adequate probabilities to the basic\noutcomes of some
random experiment under consideration is a\nprerequisite of a probabilisti
c description. The maximum entropy\nprinciple of Statistical Mechanics sol
ves this problem by stating that\namong all probability distributions that
satisfy some given constraints\nthe one of maximum Boltzmann-Gibbs-Shanno
n entropy must be chosen.\nBeing an indisputable principle of Statistical
Mechanics\,\nits status outside physics as a general method of statistical
\ninference is less clear.\n\nWe present a foundation of the maximum entro
py principle that is based\non probabilistic arguments. It deliberately a
voids reference to\nnotions of information and it does not appeal to physi
cally motivated\nproperties of entropy. This is achieved by formalizing pr
obability\nassignment as a certain symmetric\, continuous mapping that add
itionally\nsatisfies a condition of self-consistency. We show that any suc
h mapping\ncan be expressed as a variational principle\, i.e. as a general
ized\nmaximum entropy principle with an a priori unspecified entropy funct
ion.\nAdding a condition of statistical independence\, an earlier result o

DESCRIPTION:Manuel Brando\, MPI CPfS Dresden\n\nFerromagnetic quantum crit
icality in heavy fermion systems\n\nHeavy fermion (HF) systems are metals
where the weak hybridisation between nearly localized f-electrons and the
mobile conduction electrons\, i.e. the Kondo eect\, leads to a Fermi liqu
id (FL) ground state with narrow bands and quasiparticles with strongly en
hanced eective electronic masses. When the magnetic RKKY interaction beco
mes comparable to the Kondo interaction\, magnetic order can appear\, most
ly at very low T. The magnetic order can be suppressed by an external para
meter\, e.g. pressure or magnetic eld\, inducing a quantum phase transiti
on (QPT) at T = 0. If this QPT is continuous\, the associated quantum crit
ical point (QCP) is surrounded by a non- FL regime of quantum critical fuc
tuations where unconventional superconductivity or novel phases of matter
may arise [1].\n\nThe unambiguous observation of antiferromagnetic (AFM) Q
CPs in HF systems [2] has led to an increasing number of theoretical and e
xperimental works in order to understand QPTs as deeply as their classical
counterpart. Although it has been demonstrated that in antiferromagnets Q
CPs exist\, in ferromagnets there is still no clear evidence. Intensive in
vestigations have shown that metallic ferromagnets are inherently unstable
[3\, 4] and do not exhibit a FM QCP.\n\nHowever\, in the recently discove
red HF system YbNi4P2\, a quasi-1D ferromagnet with a remarkably-low TC =
0:15K [5\, 6]\, the T-divecgence in the Grüneisen ratio [7] points to the
presence of a FM QCP. I will present a general overview of the state of t
he art of FM quantum criticality in HF systems\, discussing in particular
the cases of YbNi4P2 [5\, 6]\, CeFePO [8]\, CePd1-xRhx [9] as well as the
AFM system YbRh2Si2 [10] where FM order is induced by chemical pressure [1

ia\n\nTopological parameters in gravity\n\nGravity theory in four dimensio
ns has three independent topological parameters. In the Lagrangian\, these
show up as coefficients of three topological densities\, namely Nieh-Yan\
, Pontryagin and Euler. We analyse the Hamiltonian theory based on this ge
neralized Lagrangian. The resulting theory develops a nontrivial dependenc
e on all three parameters\, and is shown to admit a SU(2) gauge theoretic
interpretation with a set of seven first class constraints corresponding t
o three SU(2) rotations\, three spatial diffeomorphism and one to evolutio
n in a timelike direction.\n\nWe also study how the topological parameters
affect the gravity action with or without a cosmological constant for man
ifolds with boundaries. For both Dirichlet and locally AdS asymptotia\, th
e Barbero-Immirzi parameter is shown to appear as the only independent top
ological coupling constant in the action principle.\n\nOur analyses indica

r Higher derivative theories become necessary and is discussed in the firs
t order formalism. This Hamiltonian formulation is applied to the minisupe
rspace cosmology following from the geodetic brane gravity model introduce
d by Regge and Teitelboim. The analysis is done using the equivalent first
order approach. The constraint algebra is shown to realize a truncated Vi
rasoro algebra. The gauge generator containing the exact number of gauge p
arameters is constructed. Equivalence between the gauge and reparametrizat
ion symmetries has been demonstrated. Complete gauge fixed computations ha

lassical field theory\n\nIn special relativity\, quantum matter can be cla
ssified according to mass-energy and spin. The corresponding field-theoret
ical notions are the energy-momentum-stress tensor T and the spin angular
momentum tensor S. Since each object in physics carries energy and\, if fe
rmionic\, also spin\, the notions of T and S can be spotted in all domains
of physics\, starting from the mechanical stress in engineering mechanics
\, over the Maxwell stress in electrodynamics to the energy-momentum tenso
r of matter in special and in general relativity. We discuss\, in particul
ar\, asymmetric stress tensors\, spin fluids\, the Belinfante-Rosenfeld sy
mmetrization of T\, the improved energy-momentum of Callan\, Coleman\, and
Jackiw. We discuss in how far Weyl's dictum that only general relativity
leads to a proper definition of the energy concept is appropriate. This se
minar is open ended and tries to build bridges to relativistic themodynami

o: Exotic Phases of Quantum Matter\n\nTraditionally\, condensed matter phy
sicists have classified phases of\nmatter according to their symmetries. O
ver the last few decades\, it\nbecame clear that near zero temperature\, t
here are plenty of phases\nwhich lie beyond this classification scheme. Th
ese intrinsically\nquantum mechanical states of matter lack any ordinary o

liquids.\nNevertheless\, they posses a hidden underlying order\, known as
\n"topological order". The quantum Hall effect is a celebrated example\nof
such a phase\; several others have been discovered recently\, and\nmany m
ore have been predicted theoretically. The elementary\nexcitations of topo
logically ordered states can be thought of as\nemergent particles\; intrig
uingly\, these particles can obey unusual\nexchange statistics rules which
resemble neither those of bosons nor\nof fermions. This property makes to
pological phases potentially useful\nas building blocks for future decoher
ence-free quantum processing\ndevices. In this talk\, I will describe some
modern insights into the\nnature of these phases\, and their characteriza
tion in term of their\nquantum entanglement. I will also discuss a new rou

topological insulator\, new physical phenomena arise in transport and supe
rconductivity. The topological nature of surface states can be evidenced b
y measuring the Berry phase of quantum oscillations in magnetotransport. I
will quickly review the current status of the Bi-based class of 3D topolo
gical insulators in terms of how good a topological insulator one can make
nowadays. Also the conducting interface between insulating LaAlO3 and SrT
iO3 bears great resemblance to these topological surfaces.\nWhen supercond
uctivity is induced into a topological state by using the proximity effect
or a Josephson junction configuration\, the superconducting order paramet
er can have a large p-wave component\, leading to Andreev bound states at
zero energy\, the so-called Majorana states. I will review the status of o

ganic 2D systems such as hexagonal BN sheets\, transition metal dichalcoge

DESCRIPTION:Jure Demsar\, Ilmenau University of Technology\n\nThe interpla
y between the electronic and lattice degrees of freedom in Density Waves
probed with femtosecond real-time probes\n\nIn many of the advanced solids
exhibiting macroscopic quantum phenomena (e.g. superconductivity) their f
unctional properties arise from a delicate balance between interactions am
ong different degrees of freedom (electrons\, phonons\, spins). An example
of such is the appearance of Charge Density Wave (CDW) ground state in se
veral quasi one- or two-dimensional metals. According to the standard Peie
rls’ scenario the appearance of the CDW phase is driven by the divergent
static electronic susceptibility at a wave vector q=2kF. This classical
description has been challenged [1]\, arguing that the appearance of CDWs
\, in particular in the transition-metal dichalcogenides\, is due to stron
g (q-dependent) electron-phonon coupling [1].\n\nI will review some recent
studies where some of the open questions were addressed utilizing femtose
cond time-resolved optical [2] and structural probes [3-5]. Using femtosec
ond electron diffraction we were able to directly follow the photo-trigger
ed dynamics of the periodic lattice distortion (order parameter) in dichal
cogenides [3\,4]\, point out the importance of three-dimensionality for th
e existence of CDWs in these quasi-2D systems [4]\, and to track the diffe
rent stages of the photo-induced phase transition between different CDW ph

of a three-dimensional metal at an \nantiferromagnetic (AFM) critical poin
t is presented. It is show how\nthe critical spin fluctuations at the AFM
wavevector q = Q induce energy \nfluctuations at small q\, giving rise to
a diverging quasiparticle \neffective mass over the whole Fermi surface. T
he coupling\nof the fermionic and bosonic degrees of freedom leads to a \n

and quasiparticle weight factor Z. We \nspecifically assume a scale depen

ations. The ensuing spin fluctuation \nspectrum obeys E/T-scaling. Our res

Mü\;nchen\n\nLiving Nonequilibrium? Towards a thermally driven Darwin
Process\n\nThe origin of life is one of the fundamental\, unsolved riddles
of modern science. Life as we know it is a stunningly complex non-equilib
rium process\, keeping its entropy low against the second law of thermod
ynamics. Therefore it is straightforward to argue that first living system
s had to start in a natural non-equilibrium settings.\n\nRecent experiment
s with non-equilibrium microsystems suggest that geological conditions sho
uld be able to drive molecular evolution\, i.e. the combined replication a
nd selection of genetic molecules towards ever increasing complexity.\n\nA
s a start\, we explored the non-equilibrium setting of natural thermal gra
dients. Temperature differences across rock fissures accumulate small mono
mers more than millionfold by thermophoresis and convection. Longer mole
cules are exponentially better accumulated\, hyperexponentially shifting t
he polymerization equilibrium towards long RNA strands. The same setting i
mplements convective temperature oscillations which overcome template pois
oning and yield length-insensitive\, exponential replication kinetics. Acc
umulation and thermally driven replication was demonstrated in the same ch
amber\, driven by the same temperature gradient. Protein-free\, non-ligati
ng replication schemes can be driven by thermal convection. For example\,
the hairpins of tRNA can be used for reversible codon-sequence replication
\, bridging from replication of genes to the translation of proteins. Non-
templated polymerization and hybridization-dependent degradation leads to
replication-like information transmission. Replication and trapping of DNA
persist over long time in a constant influx of monomers\, closely approac
hing the criteria for an autonomous Darwin process.\n\nBesides temperature
gradients\, many more non-equilibrium settings can be imagined and become
increasingly accessible to experimentation. For example\, geological pH
gradients\, geological redox potentials or the optical excitation of geolo
gical nanoparticles should drive metabolic reactions in a very peculiar wa
y. \n\n

um requires a set of 36 independent parameters\, instead of two ordinary m
aterial parameters\, &epsilon\; and &mu\;. Such a set is arranged in a 4-t
h order constitutive tensor. Due to the group theory\, this tensor is irre
ducibly decomposed into the sum of three independent sub-tensors. The firs
t principal part is a substitution of the classical set of parameters. Two
other tensors\, skewon and axion\, have no classical analogs and may repr
esent some novel properties of media or artificial materials.\n\nIn my tal
k\, I will describe how the generalized covariant dispersion relation is d
erived. The result is in a correspondence with the formula proposed by Heh
l\, Obukhov and Rubilar. I define the notion of optic tensor (an analog of
acoustic tensor from elasticity) and describe its properties. With this n
ew device\, I show some new results about the skewon modified media. The m
ost visual outcome is a proof that in the skewon modified vacuum the wave
propagation is necessary superluminal. It means that the skewon is probabl
y forbidden in vacuum\, but not in material media.

DESCRIPTION:Dr. Jeroen Custers\, Charles University\, Prague\n\nSupercondu
ctivity emerging in the magnetic state in heavy fermion materials Ce3PdIn1
1 and Ce3PtIn11 at ambient pressure\n\nThe present focus on quantum critic
al phenomena in correlated matter is driven by the puzzling enigma concern
ing the origin of unconventional superconductivity (SC). In a weak couplin
g picture\, the magnetic ordering is a spin density wave (SDW) induced by
Fermi surface (FS) nesting of itinerant electrons. Consequently\, supercon
ductivity results from pair scattering between the electron - and holelike
FS pockets. A drastically different viewpoint proposes that magnetism and
superconductivity develop out of localized moments which are generated by
strong electron - electron correlations (strong coupling limit). The simi
larities in the superconducting phase diagrams of correlated materials tem
pt us to believe that there may be a certain fundamental aspects shared be
tween the iron pnictides\, chalcogenides\, cuprate superconductors and the
HF materials. Against this backdrop\, heavy Fermion (HF) materials acquir
e a new significance.\n\nThis class of materials is inherent close to a ma
gnetic quantum phase transition frequently in conjunction with emergence o
f unconventional superconductivity [1]. Recently it was shown that strong
and weak coupling scenarios are complementary if taking into account the "
dimensionality" of the critical fluctuations which in most cases mirrors t
he structural dimensionality of the compound [2-4]. In this presentation I
will discuss the global phase diagram of heavy fermions with an experimen
tal focus on the CenTmIn3n+2m (T = transition metal\, n = 1\, 2\,..\; m =
0\, 1\,..) family. This family is predestinated in order to understand how
magnetism and superconductivity is influenced when going from 3D to 2D HF
structures. CenTmIn3n+2m compounds display both attributes with cubic CeI
n3 at the 3D and CeCoIn5 as an example of the opposite (2D) end of the ser
ies. I will present first results on single crystals of two new members Ce
3PdIn11 and Ce3PtIn11 located in between [5]. At ambient pressure supercon
ductivity emerges in the complex antiferromagnetic state below Tc = 0.42 K
(Tc = 0.32 K) in Ce3PdIn11 (Ce3PtIn11). Both phenomena coexist in a wide
range of the pressure - temperature phase diagrams. The critical pressure
where TN -> 0 and Tc is maximum equals pc ~= 1.6 GPa.\n\n[1] H. von Löhne

DESCRIPTION:Fulvio Parmigiani\, University of Trieste\n\nSpin and time res
olved photoelectron spectroscopy in the momentum space of archetypal topol
ogical insulators\n\nThe interaction between light and the topologically p
rotected spin polarized Dirac particles at the surface of topological insu
lators (TIs) constitutes the key issue for the development of opto-spintro
nics devices. Laser-based time and angle resolved photoelectron spectrosco
py (tr-ARPES) in the sub-ps time domain represents an important experiment
al tool to investigate the ultrafast light-induced modification of the ele
ctronic properties in TIs. Several studies recently disclosed a very rich
scenario\, characterized by long-lived electronic population [ref. Sobota]
\, Floquet-Bloch states [ref. Gedik science]\, reduction of the electron-p
honon coupling [ref Crepaldi2] and the possibility to tune the Schottky ba
rrier [ref. Marsi]. Despite the large number of experimental investigation
s of the out-of-equilibrium electronic properties [ref. Sobota JP\, Chulko
v\, Perfetti\, Crepaldi1]\, a detailed description of the microscopic scat
tering mechanisms within the surface state and between the bulk conduction
band and the surface state is lacking\, so far. Here an overview of the m
ost recent discoveries relevant to the evolution of the electron populatio
n optically-injected in the topologically protected state at the surface i
s reported. In particular\, we prove that only by measuring the spin-inten
sity signal over several orders of magnitude in spin- time- and angle reso
lved photoemission spectroscopy (s-tr-ARPES) experiments it is possible to
comprehensively describe the optically excited electronic states in TIs m
aterials. Remarkably\, the experimental data\, interpreted on the base of
ab-initio fully relativistic spin resolved photoemission calculations and
spin dynamics modeling\, unambiguously show that two non-interacting elect
ronic systems\, derived from the excited surface and bulk states\, are cha
racterizing the non-equilibrium electronic properties of the archetypal TI
\, Bi2Se3.\n\nContact Person: Paul H.M. van Loosdrecht

manifested by the unique cuprate fermiology reproduced in Sr2IrO4. How sup

essential features of high temperature superconductivity\; in particular
the long-sought connection between the pseudogap and superconductivity.\n\

scapes and the Dynamics of RNA Folding\n\nRNA molecules are quite well rep
resented in terms of their secondary\nstructure. In this discrete model\,
which considers only base pair stacking\,\nground state energies as well a
s properties of the equilibrium ensemble can\nbe computed efficiently by m
eans of exact dynamic programming\nalgorithms. In addition\, it allows a v
ery detailed analysis of the entire\nenergy landscapes and therefore acces
s to details of the processes of\nstructural change. To this end\, however
\, the huge space of all secondary\nstructures needs to be condensed to a
coarse grained representation that is\nsmall enough to allow detailed dyna
mical analyses. Examples are barrier\ntrees and the more accurate 'base ho
pping graph'. These condensed graph\nstructures can be computed exactly fo
r moderate size molecules making use\nby enumeration and admit rather effe
ctive sampling techniques for larger\nRNAs. Kinetic parameters can be esti
mated with acceptable accuracy in this\nmanner providing insights into the
folding and refolding dynamics of RNAs.\nThe landscape paradigm can be ex
tended to co-transcriptional folding as\nwell as a variety of settings in
which environmental conditions lead to\nsmall changes in the RNA itself or
in underlying parametrization. In this\npicture\, intricate effects\, as
they occur e.g. in kinetically controlled\nriboswitches can be modelled. \

The\n first part of the talk will highlight theoretical progress on t
his\n question\, taking in several ways a quantum information view -\
n employing ideas of Lieb-Robinson bounds\, quantum central limit\n
theorems and of concentration of measure. These findings will be\n
complemented by experimental work with ultra-cold atoms in optical\n
lattices\, in setups constituting dynamical "quantum simulators"\,\n
allowing to probe physical questions that are not only out of reach\n
for state-of-the-art numerical techniques based on matrix-product\n
states\, but also relate to classically computationally hard problems.\n

nCooperativity in complex epidemics\n\nThere are two standard "Ising" mode
ls for the spreading of epidemics\, the "SIS" (susceptible-infected-suscep
tible) epidemic and the "SIR" (susceptible-infected-removed) model. Both a
re related to percolation - the first to directed\, the second to undirect
ed - and thus both show continuous ("second-order") phase transitions when
the conditions for spreading are critical. Recently\, much interest has b
een roused by models which show first order transitions. After giving a sh
ort overview I will concentrate on first order transitions in models with
cooperativity. This cooperativity can be of two very different types. On t
he one hand\, several agents on neighboring nodes in a network (or sites o
n a lattice) can cooperate in infecting a new node (like three friends who
convince you more easily than any single one of them to adopt a political
opinion). On the other hand\, also two pathogens (like HIV and TB) can co
operate in the sense that one of them lowers the resistance to the other.
In the first case the transition from a continuous to a discontinuous phas
e transition is a standard tricritical point (with higher n-point interact
ions in a field theoretic formalism)\, while in the second one one has a m
ulti-component order parameter. In several instances\, the resulting first
order transitions are actually "hybrid"\, i.e. they involve also features
of second-order transitions like scaling. In one case\, one even finds th
at two order parameter definitions which coincide for ordinary percolation
display different transition orders.\n\nContact Person: Joachim Krug

of the challenging question in this field is to understand whether PEPS c
an describe chiral topological states with broken time-reversal symmetry.
In this talk\, I will present our recent results on constructing explicit
examples of PEPS\, which belong to Chern insulators and topological superc

duction to noncommutative spectral geometry\, a bottom-up approach that un
ifies the (successful) Standard Model of high energy physics with Einstein
's General theory of Relativity. The model is build upon almost-commutativ
e spaces and I will discuss the physical implications of the choice of suc
h manifolds. I will show that even though the unification has been obtaine
d only at the classical level\, the doubling of the algebra may incorporat
e the seeds of quantisation. I will then briefly review the particle physi
cs phenomenology and highlight open issues and current proposals. In the l
ast part of my talk\, I will explore consequences of the gravitational-Hig
gs part of the spectral action formulated within such almost-commutative m
anifolds. In particular\, I will study modifications of the Friedmann equa
tion\, propagation of gravitational waves and the onset of inflation. I wi
ll show how current measurements (Gravity Probe B and pulsars) can constra
in free parameters of the model. I will conclude with a short discussion o

and correlations realized in low-dimensional and frustrated systems [3\,4]
\, exciting physics of impurities and quenched disorder [5]\, and dramatic
events near quantum phase transitions [6]. In this colloquium studies of
model oxides and halides by neutron scattering and complementary experimen

luctuations by chemistry and pressure application\, and correlations and p

ty in LiFeAs as seen by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy\n\n
In this talk\, I will present recent results on the unconventional superco
nductor LiFeAs obtained by scanning tunneling micrsopcopy/spectroscopy (S
TM/STS). STM. STM/STS is an important probe for studying such superconduct
ors. On the one hand it provides the possibility to directly measure the s
patial variation of the order parameter in the presence of a magnetic vort
ex lattice\, and thus the coherence length. On the other hand\, the quasip
article interference (QPI) which arises from quasiparticle scattering off
impurities\, and which sensitively depends on the superconducting wave fun
ction can be probed directly. LiFeAs belongs to the class of iron arsenide
superconductors which have been discovered in 2008. This material possess
es very clean and charge neutral cleaved surfaces without a surface state
and is thus perfectly suited for STM/STS. Our QPI data are perfectly cons
istent with band structure data derived from angular reolved photoemission
spectroscopy [1].\nHowever\, the further analysis yields incompatibility
with elementary s- or d-wave order parameters\, suggestive of a more compl
ex scenario [2]. I will discuss these findings in the context of further e
xperimental data and theoretical results.\n\n[1] C. Hess\, S. Sykora\, T.

DESCRIPTION:Claudio Castelnovo\, University of Cambridge\n\nDynamics of fr
actionalised excitations in spin ice materials\n\nSpin ice materials such
as Dy2Ti2O7 and Ho2Ti2O7 provide a rare instance of emergent gauge symmetr
y and fractionalisation in three dimensions. Their elementary excitations
carry a fraction of the magnetic moment of the microscopic spin degrees of
freedom and they can be thought of as magnetic monopoles. Spin ice ground
states are highly degenerate yet locally constrained and in the absence o
f monopole excitations\, effectively no dynamics is possible. At low tempe
ratures\, the monopoles are sparse and dynamics becomes very slow. These s
ystems are therefore prone to falling out of equilibrium at low temperatur
es\, for instance following comparatively rapid changes in temperature or
applied magnetic field. In this regime\, a wealth of dynamical phenomena o
ccur\, including reaction diffusion behaviour\, slow dynamics due to kinem
atic constraints\, as well as behaviour that mimic the deposition of inter
acting dimers on a lattice. The situation is further complicated by the pr
esence of disorder that\, even at small\n densities\, appears to have a si
zeable effect on the low-temperature dynamics of these systems. Here we in
vestigate some of these phenomena and we propose how to effectively extend
existing theories to describe spin ice out of equilibrium. Nonequilibrium
physics in spin ice is a novel setting which combines kinematic constrain
ts\, emergent topological defects\, and magnetic long range Coulomb intera
ctions. \n\n\nContact Person: Simon Trebst

Kondo lattice model\, if properly generalized\, provides microscopic under
standing of rich varieties of ordering phenomena in strongly correlated el
ectrons. Moreover\, the model can predict new orders that can be tested e
xperimentally. We demonstrate novel electronic orders in the Kondo lattic
e by including multi-bands of conduction electrons. The resultant two-cha
nnel Kondo lattice at zero temperature cannot remain disordered because of
the remaining fractional entropy at each site\, and unconventional orders
are realized. The hidden symmetry SO(5) of the model at half-filling of c
onduction bands causes degeneracy between multipole composite orders with
three components\, and an odd-frequency superconducting order with a compl
ex order parameter. Detailed numerical calculation shows that deviation f
rom the half-filling makes the superconductivity most stable for a certain
range of the density. We discuss peculiar features of the order paramet

effects are expected in 1D structures and I will present in this talk two
recent examples of geometrically and electronically confined systems fabri
cated by lithography and self-assembly\, respectively\, where the spectros
copic signatures and transport properties are determined by their edges an
d step structures: \nPb adsorbed on Si(557) leads to formation of long ra
nge ordered quantum wire ensembles. At temperatures below 78K the system u
ndergoes a refacetting transition accompanied by a metal-insulator transit
ion. The insulating behavior found in the direction across the wires can b
e explained in terms of Fermi nesting [1]. Recently\, the spin-orbit coupl
ing in this system and its impact to magneto-transport measurements have b
een analyzed in detail. The spin polarization of the Fermi surface\, manif
ested already in the suppression of spin-orbit coupling along the wires wi
thin the 1D transport regime\, has been confirmed by spin-resolved ARPES m
easurements. The magnitude of the Rashba-splitting in this strongly anisot

ground state of a CDW system electron-electron interaction [2]. \nThe reg

nce\n\nIn this presentation\, we will discuss the notion of time and unita
rity in the vicinity of a bounce in quantum cosmology\, that is\, a turnin
g point for the scale factor. This starts from the Vilenkin approach to th
e interpretation of the solutions of the Wheeler-DeWitt equation. In this
approach\, unitarity is defined through the conserved current and is by na
ture an approximate concept. In minisuperspace it amounts to using the sca
le factor as a time variable. A unitary evolution is recovered when the la
tter becomes semi-classical enough.\n\nUnfortunately\, WKB methods drastic
ally fail near a turning point and the scale factor cannot play the role o
f time in scenarios with a bounce or a recollapsing phase for the universe
. In this work\, we extend the results of Vilenkin Massar and Parentani to
momentum representation. For this\, we investigate the dynamics of matter
transitions when using its conjugate momentum as a time. In a first part\
, we describe the precise conditions so as to recover unitarity\, and henc
e\, a consistent notion of probability. In a second part\, we discuss a co
ncrete example in the vicinity of a bounce.

l physics in excited bands of optical lattices\n\nOrbital physics in excit
ed bands of optical lattices\n\nAfter numerous advances in manipulation an
d detection techniques\, cold atoms in optical lattices have become a prim
ary candidate for studies of mesoscopic quantum phenomena. The possibility
of accessing both the weakly and strongly correlated regimes\, allows for
investigation of a variety of phenomena which include quantum phase trans
itions.\n\nAfter a brief introduction to the field of cold atoms\, here we
will explore the physics in excited bands of optical lattices - the p ban
d. Due to an additional orbital degree of freedom\, the physics in the p b
and is qualitatively different from the physics of the usual systems in th
e ground band. We will start by defining these orbital states and describi
ng mean field properties of the system\, with particular emphasis on the c
ondensation (in the p band) of a confined system. We will then move to the
strongly correlated regime to show that under specific circumstances\, th
e physics of bosons in the p band can be described by the spin-1/2 quantum
XYZ Heisenberg model in an external field\, that is one of the paradigmat
ic models in the study of quantum magnetism.\n

fractional quantum Hall effect my arise\, under certain conditions and li
mitations\, directly in one dimensional systems. \n\nThe primary example t
hat will be discussed is that of one dimensional wires with spin-orbit cou
pling. We will show that in the presence of Zeeman field and strong elect
ron-electron interaction\, a clean wire may form fractional helical liquid
\nstates with phenomenology similar to fractional quantum Hall liquids. Mo
st notably\, the wire's\ntwo terminal conductance is predicted to show fra
ctional quantized conductance plateaus at low\nelectron density. The eleme
ntary charge excitation of the wire is fractional and affects the shot noi
se in a nontrivial way. When the system is proximity-coupled to a superco
nductor\, fractional Majorana\nbound states may be stabilized\, giving ris
e to 1D analog of non-abelian anyons. I will discuss how\ndisorder destabi

ter with Cold Polar Molecules: Glass and the Hexatic Phase\n\nThe realizat

re the dynamics of quantum many body systems with strong\, long-range and
anisotropic dipolar interactions. While theoretical studies have so far fo
cused on the equilibrium phases in the highly degenerate quantum regime \,
I will focus in my talk on non-equilibirum dynamics in the regime where q
uantum and thermal fluctuations are of the same order of magnitude. I will
present two proposals: i.) a study on the glass transition in the presenc
e of quantum fluctuations and ii.) a study on quantum fluctuations in the
hexatic phase. i.) I will show\, how the glass phase can be prepared in a
bilayer system of ultracold dipolar molecules and present results on class
ical and quantum glassy behavior\, characterized by long tails in the rela
xation time and dynamical heterogeneity. I will also present experimental
accessible order parameters based on marker molecules\, distinguished by p
roperly chosen internal levels\, and find quantum features of dynamical he
terogeneity. ii.) The hexatic phase is an intermediate phase in two dimen
sional systems when going from the crystal to the liquid phase. I will pre
sent results on the influence of quantum fluctuations on the nature of the
hexatic phase and methods that allow one to measure these effects in a se

e properties of f-electrons in rare-earth intremetallics\n\nFor a long tim
e\, rare-earth (RE) intermetallic materials have attracted considerable in
terest be-cause of their exotic properties at low temperatures which inclu
de complex magnetic phases\, valence fluctuations\, heavy-fermion states\,
Kondo behavior and many others. It is widely believed that all of these p
roperties stem from the delicate interplay between almost localized 4f ele
ctrons and itinerant valence band states.\nOur experiments aim to disclose
details of this interaction\, and reveal the fine electronic struc-ture o
f such materials near the Fermi level. To this end\, we apply Angle-Resolv
ed Photoemission Spectroscopy (ARPES) technique\, which in spite of its su
rface sensitivity when working in UV mode\, indeed\, allows to gain deep i
nsight not only into surface electron structure\, but to probe the bulk de
-rived states\, too. In that regard\, the particular point of our experime
nts is the proper discrimination of (sub-) surface and bulk related phenom
ena. \nIn the past years we performed extensive ARPES studies on the RERh2
Si2 (RE = Ce\, Eu and Yb) series of compound as well as on YbIr2Si2 With o
ur approach we were able to address some of the topics at the core of stro
ngly correlated 4f electron systems: (i) observation of crystal-electric f
ield (CEF) splitting of the 4f states and their fine dispersion induced by
f-d hybridization\; (ii) insight into the Fermi surface and manifestation
of its strong 4f character. Disclosing its topology and features reflecti
ng f-d coupling at the surface and bulk of the material. Studying its temp
erature dependence for a Kondo lattice (YbRh2Si2)\; (iii) clear evidence o

of domain-structured ferroelectrics. In the main part of my talk I will di

DESCRIPTION:Bela Bauer\, Microsoft Station Q\n\nArea laws in a many-body l
ocalized state and its implications for topological order\n\nThe question
whether Anderson insulators can persist to finite-strength interactions -
a scenario dubbed many-body localization - has received a great deal of in
terest. We formulate a precise sense in which a single energy eigenstate o
f a Hamiltonian can be adiabatically connected to a state of a non-interac
ting Anderson insulator\, and define a many-body localized phase based on
this. We explore the possible consequences of this\; the most striking is
an area law for the entanglement entropy of almost all excited states in a
many-body localized phase. We present the results of numerical calculatio
ns for a one-dimensional system of spinless fermions. Furthermore\, we stu
dy the implications that many-body localization may have for topological p
hases and identify scenarios in which many-body localization can help to s
tabilize topological order at non-zero energy density. We also explore the
ways in which a relatively small quantum computer could be leveraged to s
tudy many-body localization. We show that\, in addition to studying time-e
volution\, a quantum computer can\, in polynomial time\, obtain eigenstate
s at arbitrary energies to sufficient accuracy that localization can be ob
served.\n\nContact Person: Simon Trebst

n\nGraphene as two-dimensional conductor and topologial insulators which p
ossess two-dimensional metallic surface states around an insulating volume
share also quasirelativistic properties of their charge carriers. Their c
haracteristic linear E(k) band dispersions can be observed as so-called Di
rac cones in angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. In graphene\, they
are caused by pseudospin properties\, in topological insulators such as B
i2Se3 by the electron spin. This opens the possibility to manipulate trans
port properties by opening a surface band gap at the Dirac crossing point
through breaking of the sublattice symmetry of graphene or the time-revers
al symmetry of topological insulators. In the talk\, examples are shown wh
ere these attempts lead to surprising results. In a further step\, graphen
e is made spin dependent by an extrinsic spin orbit interaction. The resul
ting spin polarization is in the surface plane - the same is the case with
topological insulators. The opening of the Dirac point by symmetry breaki
ng should in both cases turn the spin perpendicular to the surface. This i
s demonstrated for graphene. For topological insulators\, we show that the
spin can be turned out of the plane by polarized light in the photoemissi

archetypal FERMI externally seeded FEL\, recent theoretical and experimen
tal progress has shown the possibility of producing fully coherent\, varia
ble polarization and tunable\, soft-X-ray\, ultra-short pulses at high rep
etition rate. \n\nThis ultimate achievement will unlock the gate for perfo
rming X-ray-based experiments that are qualitatively different from those
available at any current or planned X-ray source.\n\nHere we will review t
he experiments and the ideas that represent the science frontier in soft X
-ray\, time-resolved spectroscopy\, coherent imaging and scattering experi
ments.\n\nThese studies will lead to an understanding of fundamental dynam
ics\, occurring on the ultrafast time and nanometer spatial scales\, neede

DESCRIPTION:Alexander Alldridge\n\nSupergroup actions\, slices\, and radia
l parts\n\nA theorem of Helgason states that if an action of a Lie group o
n a manifold admits a slice\, then any differential operator admits a `rad
ial’ component on the slice. For actions of Lie supergroups\, this is no
longer true in general\, as the naive slice condition is too weak. We int
roduce a strong notion of slice that allows for the generalisation of Helg
ason’s theorem\, using the concept of `orbits through generalised points
’. \n\nWe study in particular the isotropy group action for a Riemannian
symmetric superspace. In this setting\, the strong slice condition holds
if and only if the supermanifold is of `even type’ (i.e. the slice in th
e naive sense is an ordinary manifold). \n\nTo remedy this situation\, we
consider a weak notion of slices. We prove in general that at least any di
fferential operator locally invariant under the transporter supergroup of
the weak slice admits a radial part on the quotient of the weak slice by t
he transporter supergroup. This quotient is (mildly) singular in general.
For the example of Riemannian symmetric superspaces\, the transporter supe
rgroup action factors through the Weyl group\, which is a reductive Lie gr
oup of positive dimension in the cases not of odd type. \n\nWe illustrate
our findings by examples. \n\nThis work is joint with J. Hilgert and T. Wu
rzbacher\, and with K. Coulembier\, respectively.\n\nContact Person: Thoma

DESCRIPTION:Charles Reichhardt\, Los Alamos\n\nSkyrmion Lattices in Random
and Ordered Potential Landscapes\n\nSince the initial discovery of skyrmi
on lattices in chiral magnets [1]\, there has been a tremendous growth in
this field as an increasing number of compounds are found to have extended
regions of stable skyrmion lattices [2] even close to room temperature [3
]. These systems have significant promise for applications due to their s
ize scale and the low currents or drives needed to move the skyrmions [4].
Another interesting aspect of skyrmions is that the equations of motion
have significant non-dissipative terms or a Magnus effect which makes them
unique in terms of collective driven dynamics as compared to other system
s such as vortex lattices in type-II superconductors\, sliding charge dens
ity waves\, and frictional systems. We examine the driven dynamics of sky
rmions interacting with random and periodic substrate potentials using bot
h continuum based modelling and particle based simulations. In clean syste
ms we examine the range in which skyrmion motion can be explored as a func
tion of the magnetic field and current and show that there can be a curren
t-induced creation or destruction of skyrmions. In systems with random pi
nning we find that there is a finite depinning threshold and that the Hall
angle shows a strong dependence on the disorder strength. We also show th
at features in the transport curves correlate with different types of skyr
mion flow regimes including a skyrmion glass depining/skyrmion plastic flo
w region as well as a transition to a dynamically reordered skyrmion cryst
al at higher drives. We find that increasing the Magnus term produces a lo
w depinning threshold which is due to a combination of skyrmions forming c
omplex orbits within the pinning sites and skyrmion-skyrmion scattering e
ffects. If the skyrmions are moving over a periodic substrate\, with incr
easing drive the Hall angle changes in quantized steps which correspond to
periodic trajectories of the skyrmion that lock to symmetry directions of
the substrate potential.\n\n[1] S. Muhlbauer et al Science 323 915 (2009)

ton \ncoupling on the single-quantum level\, for example in cavity QED and
with \nRydberg atoms\, it is now possible to study the statistical\, and

ns. The steady-state phase transition to crystalline order in a lattice ga
ses will be discussed as well as the dynamics of its build-up.\nIn the sec
ond part photons coupled to Rydberg atoms under conditions of electromagne

. An interesting scenario in this kind of problems is the so-called deconf
ined criticality\, a transition between Néel and valence bond solid phase
s in 2D quantum magnets\, where numerical studies support a continuous pha
se transition but also display strong violations of finite size scaling th
at are not yet understood. This scenario is also believed to describe the
phase transition for classical magnets where hedgehogs are suppressed. Thr
ee dimensional completely-packed loop models were shown to describe the sa
me features as quantum magnets in 2D and the phase transition between a N
éel state and a valence bond liquid. By modifying these loop models we ca
n drive them to a phase transition with the same features: a magnetic orde
red phase where there are long loops and a paramagnetic phase where a latt
ice symmetry is broken. In common with the direct studies of quantum Hamil
tonians\, we find strong violations of scaling for the SU(2) case. We desc
ribe accurately these violations and reach larger sizes than previous stud
ies\, making use of a wide range of observables. However\, we do not find
any conventional signs of a first order transition.\n\n\nContact Person: S

hallenges and driving forces for interfacing functional perovskite oxides
\n\nThe large spectrum of perovskite oxides provides virtually unlimited p
ossibilities to design and fabricate interfaces with functional properties
. The ability to produce clean and sharp interfaces between oxide material
s in a controlled manner provides appealing possibilities to generate nove
l electronic phases. Crucial steps in achieving high quality epitaxial oxi
de heterostructures have been the use of pulsed-laser deposition and molec
ular-beam epitaxy for the growth of multicomponent oxides\, the ability to
terminate oxide substrates at well-defined ionic planes\, and the develop
ment of high pressure reflection high-energy electron diffraction to monit
or the deposition of individual atomic layers. In consequence now epitaxia
l perovskite heterostructures can be fabricated with atomic-layer precisio
n. In my presentati
on I will show examples of physical properties of epitaxial oxide heterost
ructures I have fabricated by pulsed-laser deposition. The emphasis will b
e on justifying the choice of the perovskite oxides that were interfaced (
ferromagnetic manganites and ruthenates and ferroelectrics) and on the rol
e of the interfaces\, and their quality\, in establishing the physical pro
perties of these particular heterostructures. \n\nContact Person: Markus G

new states of matter. Reversible coupling of excitons and photons enabled
groundbreaking results in condensation and superfluidity of nonequilibriu
m quasiparticles with a photonic component. We investigated such cavity-po
laritons in the presence of a high-mobility two-dimensional electron gas\,
exhibiting strongly correlated phases. When the cavity was on resonance w
ith the Fermi level\, we observed previously unknown many-body physics ass
ociated with a dynamical hole-scattering potential. In finite magnetic fie
lds\, polaritons show distinct signatures of integer and fractional quantu
m Hall ground states. Our results lay the groundwork for probing nonequili

scheme known as the DP conjecture will be discussed. The DP conjecture sta
tes that a model system without nontrivial symmetry and/or conservation la

Other universality classes have been found by breaking some of the requis

DESCRIPTION:David Luitz\, Toulouse\n\nMany body localization in the random
field Heisenberg chain\n\n In this talk\, I will give an introduction to
the phenomenon of many body localization and its differences from single p
article Anderson\nlocalization. Then\, I discuss our recent exact diagonal
ization results of the many body localization (MBL) transition in the rand
om field Heisenberg chain and present in particular the energy vs\ndisorde
r strength phase diagram that was obtained from various estimators. The ph
ase boundary is strongly energy dependent\, thus providing evidence for an
extensive mobility edge. At low disorder strength\, eigentstates are ergo
dic and can be described by GOE statistics\, while in the strong field pha
se\, they are localized and show Poisson statistics. In the MBL phase\, th
e eigenstate\nthermalization hypothesis is no longer fulfilled.\n\nIf time
permits\, I will provide an outlook on our current work\, where we\nlook
at the exact time evolution of initial product states.\n\nReference:\nLuit

DESCRIPTION:Lei Wang\, ETH Zurich\n\nRecent Surprises in the Simulation of
Quantum Phase Transitions\n\nI will talk about two recent surprises in th
e quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulation of quantum phase transitions. \n\nS
urprise one is the solution of a thirty years old sign problem by Huffman
and Chandrasekharan. It enables us to study the fermionic quantum critical
point of spinless Dirac fermions using unbiased continuous-time QMC simul
ations. Compatible results are also obtained from infinite projected entan
gled-pair states calculations. I will compare the numerical results with p
redictions of the Gross-Neveu theory and discuss their physical implicatio
ns. \n\nSurprise two is a generic\, efficient and elegant approach to comp
ute fidelity susceptibility of correlated fermions\, bosons\, and quantum
spin systems in modern QMC methods. It can be used to detect quantum phase
transitions without any prior knowledge of the local order parameter. Usi
ng it I will shed light on the hypothetical spin-liquid phase in the Hubba
rd model on honeycomb lattice. \n\n\nContact Person: Simon Trebst

ic resistance at very low levels of antibiotic\n\nAntibiotic use results i
n generation of antibiotic concentration gradients and bacteria are often
exposed to non-lethal (sub-MIC) drug concentrations. Recent evidence sugge
sts that sub-MIC antibiotic exposure has an important role in the evolutio
n resistance by (i) directly selecting for resistance and (ii) generating
genetic and phenotypic variability that increases rates of resistance evol
ution. Importantly\, resistant mutants that appear in response to weak sel
ection pressures are more problematic than those selected under lethal ant
ibiotic concentrations due to the enrichment of mutators and high fitness
mutants. Together these findings suggest that sub-MIC exposure may acceler
ate the emergence and spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria among humans
and animals.\n\nContact Person: Christa Stitz

DESCRIPTION:Arkady V. Krasheninnikov\, Aalto University\, Finland \n\nLect
ure on 2D Transition-Metal Dichalcogenides: Doping\, Alloying and Electron
ic Structure Engineering \n\nFollowing isolation of a single sheet of grap
hene\, many other 2D systems were manufactured. Among them\, single transi
tion metal dichalcogenides (TMD) sheets have received a particular attenti
on\, as these materials exhibit intriguing electronic\, optical and mechan
ical properties which can be controlled by varying material composition. M
oreover\, the properties can further be tuned by introduction of defects a
nd impurities. \nIn this lecture\, after a brief introduction to the struc
ture and properties of TMDs\, I will present the results of our ﬁrst-pri
nciples theoretical studies of the morphology\, electronic and optical pro
perties of 2D TMDs obtained in collaboration with several experimental gro
ups. I will further discuss how defects and impurities can be used to tune
the characteristics of 2D TMDs. I will also touch upon the stability and
electronic characteristics of mixed TMDs\, such as MoS2xSe2(1−x)\, which
can be referred to as 2D random alloys. We demonstrated that 2D mixed ter
nary MoS2/MoSe2/MoTe2 compounds are thermodynamically stable at room tempe
rature\, and that the gap in such systems is direct and can continuously b
e tuned\, as confirmed now by the experiments carried out by several group
s. \n\n\nContact Person: Thomas Michely

owards functionality - dynamics studies of complex materials\n\nFunctional
ity in materials bases not only on the possibility to affect their propert
ies with external stimuli\, but also on the time and length scales such sw
itching occurs on. Time-resolved experimental techniques explore switching
behavior directly and furthermore provide access to coupling mechanisms b
etween different electronic and structural degrees of freedom. In the fiel
d of magnetic dynamics\, the laser-induced suppression of helical spin ord
er in heavy lanthanide metals reveals a new and very efficient angular-mom
entum transfer channel. For the antiferromagnetic semiconductor EuTe we st
udied the interplay between magnetic and structural dynamics. For the phot
on-pulse-induced Verwey transition in magnetite\, we could further narrow
down the time scale on which orbital order decays as well as gain further
insight into the character of the low-temperature phase. \n\nContact Perso

DESCRIPTION:Satoru Nakatsuji\, ISSP Tokyo\n\nEmergent quantum excitations
in spin ice through coupling with electrons\n\nOne of the highlights in th
e study of geometrically frustrated magnets is the emergence of nontrivial
excitations in spin liquid states\, in particular through the interplay b
etween different degrees of freedom\, e.g. between spins and mobile electr
ons.\nSuch interesting phenomena have been found in Pr$_2$Ir$_2$O$_7$\, a
metallic spin ice with two electronic sectors. One is Pr based spin ice\,
where strong quantum effects are expected for ferromagnetic exchange coupl
ing and many similarities are found to the quantum spin ice candidate Pr$_
2$Zr$_2$O$_7$. Another sector is the 5$d$ conduction electrons for which n
ovel topological phases have been predicted based on the semimetallic half
-filled $J_{¥rm eff} = 1/2$ band due to strong spin-orbit coupling. We wi
ll discuss our observations of chiral spin liquid and quantum criticality
in Pr$_2$Ir$_2$O$_7$ and topological effects due to semimetallic electroni

DESCRIPTION:Stephan Mandt\, Columbia University\n\nLarge scale probabilist
ic modeling and machine learning\n\nModern data analysis requires computat
ions on massive data. For example\, consider the problem of\nautomatically
classifying articles in a huge digital archive containing millions of ent
ries\, or recommending\nitems to millions of users based on their purchase
history. Bayesian probabilistic modeling allows us to\nmake assumptions a
bout hidden structure in the data that is not directly observable. In Baye
sian inference\,\nwe fit a probability distribution that reveals this stru
cture.\n\nBayesian inference has been inspired by theoretical physics over
many years\, a prominent example\nbeing Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorith
ms.\nIn a more recent approach called variational inference\, Bayesian inf
erence is mapped to an optimization problem. Here\, we fit a parametrized\
n'mean field' distribution by optimizing over variational parameters in a
way to maximize the statistical evidence of the data.\nThis method scales
up to massive data sets when using stochastic optimization\, termed stocha
stic\nvariational inference (SVI).\n\nSVI uses easy-to-compute noisy gradi
ents by subsampling from the large underlying data set.\nIt suffers from t
wo major problems: noisy gradients and non-convexity. We introduce a schem
e\nthat reduces the noise by averaging over parts of the past gradients.\n
This introduces a bias\, and we discuss the tradeoff between variance and
bias. To enable convergence to better local optima\,\nwe introduce determi
nistic annealing for SVI. We introduce a temperature parameter that determ
inistically\ndeforms the objective\, and then reduce this parameter over t
he course of the optimization. We test both\nmethods on Latent Dirichlet A
llocation\, a topic model\, applied to three large text corpora.\n\n\nCont

ecades of debate between\nselectionists and neutralists\, new high-through
put methods are beginning to\nilluminate the full distribution of fitness
effects (DFE) of new mutations. Here\,\nwe shed light on the adaptive pote
ntial in Saccharomyces cerevisiae by\npresenting systematic high-through
put fitness measurements for hundreds of\nengineered mutations in a region
of the heat-shock protein Hsp90. We obtain\ndata sets that allow for the
evaluation of fitness consequences of the same\nmutations in different env
ironments\, and on different genetic backgrounds.\nWe demonstrate that the
change in the DFE upon environmental challenges is\nlargely consistent wi
th expectations derived from Fisher’s geometric model.\nFurthermore\, we
observe intragenic epistasis to be ubiquitous\, which\nsuggests a concave
shape of the underlying local fitness landscape.\n

the spacing distribution of repelling spinless fermions in one dimension\
, and thence to generalizations of the Wigner surmise (GWS) from random-ma
trix theory. The GWS expression also emerges as the steady-state solution
of a Fokker-Planck description of step evolution. Subsequently we applied
this approach to the areas of proximity cells (capture zones) of islands a
nd quantum dots on surfaces\; going beyond mean-field is necessary to get
the correct relation between the characteristic GWS exponent and the criti
cal nucleus size. A fragmentation model offers further insights. I compare
analyses of island-size distributions and of scaling of island density vs

uced interactions between distant miRNAs and targets in post-transcription

tional regulation. Due to the stoichiometric nature of the miRNA-mRNA inte
raction\, the regulation is bi-directional\, namely in addition to\nthe ef
fect of the miRNA regulators on their targets\, the transcripts affect the
activity of their miRNA regulators. This implies that there should be cro
ss-talk between mRNAs that share\na miRNA regulator as well as between miR
NAs that share common targets\, which is mediated by the shared regulators
and targets\, respectively. We have analyzed a recently published\,\nexpe
rimentally-determined human miRNA-mRNA interactome and found that it is a
dense\, intertwined network\, suggesting that the effect of an expression
change in a single mRNA or miRNA\ncould propagate along paths in the netwo
rk\, affecting non-adjacent regulators and targets. Through computational
modeling we determined the parameters governing the magnitude of this\npro
pagation and support the model by analysis of experimental perturbation da
ta. Our results provide a new view of post-transcriptional regulatory netw
orks\, expanding the concept of\nceRNAs (competing endogenous RNAs)\, impl

DESCRIPTION:Pieter Rein ten Wolde\, AMOLF Amsterdam\n\nFundamental limits
to chemical sensing\n\nCells can measure chemical concentrations with extr
aordinary precision. This raises the question what is the fundamental limi
t to the accuracy of chemical concentration\nmeasurements. In this talk\,
I will show that the sensing accuracy of passive signaling systems is limi
ted by the number of receptors\; a downstream processing network can never
increase\nthe sensing precision beyond this limit. Non-equilibrium system
s can beat this limit. However\, this requires receptors and their integra
tion time\, downstream molecules\, and energy. Each\nresource imposes a fu
ndamental sensing limit\, which means that the sensing precision is bounde
d by the limiting resource and cannot be enhanced by increasing another re
source. This\nresult yields a new design principle\, namely that of optima
l resource allocation in cellular sensing. It states that in an optimally
designed sensing system\, each resource is equally\nlimiting\, so that no
resource is wasted. We find that the chemotaxis network of E. coli obeys t
his principle\, indicating a selective pressure for the efficient design o
f cellular sensing\nsystems.\n\n\nContact Person: Johannes Berg

DESCRIPTION:Jens Bardason\, MPI-PKS Dresden\n\nMany-body localization\, en
tanglement and natural orbitals\n\nIn this talk I will discuss how entangl
ement and the eigenstates (natural orbitals) and eigenvalues (occupations)
of the one-particle density matrix can be used to characterize the many-b
ody localization transition and phases. Many-body localization is the inte
racting version of the Anderson insulator\, and is reflected both as local
ization of particles in real space\, as well as in Fock-space. The study o
f entanglement\, both in eigenstates and its evolution after quenches\, ha
s been instrumental in advancing our understanding of many-body localized
phases. The entanglement entropy of eigenstates goes from an area law in t
he localized phase\, reflecting the real space localization of wave functi
ons\, to an volume law in the delocalized phase\, with diverging fluctuat
ions at the transition. In contrast\, a global quench within the many-bod
y localized phase gives rise to a slowly (logarithmically) increasing enta
nglement entropy. The entropy of occupations in the one-particle density m
atrix turns out to have similar properties as the entanglement entropy--ar
ea law in localized phase\, volume law in delocalized phase\, and divergin
g fluctuations at the transition--but this is reflecting the Fock space st
ructure of the eigenstates. Finally\, the inverse participation ratio of t
he natural orbitals can be used to define a one-particle localization leng
th in the localized phase.

DESCRIPTION:Johannes Knolle\, Cambridge\n\nDynamics of a Quantum Spin Liqu
id\n\nTopological states of matter present a wide variety of striking new
phenomena\, most prominently is the fractionalization of electrons. Their
detection\, however\, is fundamentally complicated by the lack of any loca
l order. While there are now several instances of candidate topological sp
in liquids\, their identification remains challenging. Here\, we address o
ne of the key questions: How can a quantum spin liquid phase be diagnosed
in experiments?\nWe find that the dynamical response can serve as a valuab
le tool for diagnosing quantum spin liquids. We provide a complete and rar
ely available exact theoretical study of the dynamical structure factor an
d the inelastic Raman scattering response of a two-dimensional quantum spi
n liquid in Abelian and non-Abelian phases. We show that there are salient
signatures of the Majorana fermions and gauge fluxes emerging in Kitaev's
honeycomb model. Our analysis identifies new varieties of the venerable X
-ray edge problem and explores connections to the physics of quantum quenc
hes.\nA number of proposals suggest that some materials with strong spin-o
rbit coupling\, e.g. {Na/Li}2IrO3 or alpha-RuCl3 compounds\, realize some
of the physics of the Kitaev model. We discuss the current experimental si
tuation\, recent measurements and explore more generally the effect of bre
aking the integrability on response functions of Kitaev spin liquids. \n\n

uid\, celebrated for\nboth the richness of its physical features\, and the
fact that it\nadmits an exact solution. The latter can be cast in terms o
f Majorana\nfermions living in the background of a static Z_2 gauge field.
The\ngapped phase of this model exhibits Z_2 topological order\, equivale
nt\nto that of the toric code. Its ground state is a featureless spin\nliq
uid whose nontrivial properties can be revealed by introducing\nlattice de
fects. In the talk I will show that certain kinds of lattice\ndislocations
and bond defects in this originally Abelian system carry\nunpaired Majora
na fermions [2\,3]. Each pair of such defects gives rise\nto a non-local p
hysical fermion mode\, i.e. a topologically-protected\nqubit\, made out of
two Majorana modes connected by a Z_2 gauge string.\nThe qubit's composit
ion reveals the crucial role of the emergent gauge\nfield\, neglected in m
ost treatments of the Kitaev model\, in the\nphysics of Majorana modes. I
will demonstrate how the non-local\nfermion can be created or annihilated
by winding a magnetic vortex\naround a defect.\n\n[1] A. Kitaev\, Ann. Phy

graphene by Novoselov and Geim in 2004\, for which they were awarded the N
obel Prize to in 2010\, the scattering theory of two-dimensional massless
Dirac fermions has become relevant because of its role in understanding gr
aphene's transport properties. The latter motivated Jhih-Sheng Wu and Mich
ael M. Fogler to study the problem of scattering on a circular step-like p
otential barrier\, which is assumed to be a model for a circular cluster o
f charged impurities. The aim of the talk is to make an overview of some m
ain aspects of their recent article Scattering of two-dimensional massless
Dirac electrons by a circular potential barrier [1]. In this publication
the scattering problem was treated with respect to the values of two param
eters\, X and rho\, characterizing the size and the strength of the barrie
r\, respectively. For each combination of X and rho a suitable tool was fo
und for studying the scattering problem. One of the article's conclusions
is the fact that formation of circular clusters increases the conductivity
compared to the case of randomly distributed impurities.\n\n[1] Jhih-Shen

orks\, and topological quantum order\n\nTopological order in a 2d quantum
matter can be determined by the topological contribution to the entangleme
nt Renyi entropies. However\, when close to a quantum phase transition\, i
ts calculation becomes cumbersome. In this talk I will show how topologica
l phase transitions in 2d systems can be much better assessed by multipart
ite entanglement\, as measured by the topological geometric entanglement o
f blocks. Specifically\, I will present an efficient tensor network algori
thm based on Projected Entangled Pair States (PEPS) to compute this quanti
ty for a torus partitioned into cylinders\, and then use this method to fi
nd sharp evidence of topological phase transitions in 2d systems with a st
ring-tension perturbation. When compared to tensor network methods for Ren
yi entropies\, this approach produces almost perfect accuracies close to c
riticality and\, on top\, is orders of magnitude faster. Moreover\, I will
show how the method also allows the identification of Minimally Entangled
States (MES)\, thus providing a very efficient and accurate way of extrac
ting the full topological information of a 2d quantum lattice model from t
he multipartite entanglement structure of its ground states. If time allow
s I will also present briefly other ongoing projects at our group involvin
g the use of tensor networks to study large-spin Kagome quantum antiferrom

signatures for this specific class of quantum spin liquid. First\, I will
introduce Quantum Spin Ice physics borrowing insights from its well-studi
ed classical counterparts. In particular\, our work will build on the assu
mption that the monopole excitations present in classical Spin Ice remains
well-defined quasi-particles. Quantum fluctuations of the spins provide a
coherent mechanism for the transport of monopoles and lead to the emergen
ce of a U(1) gauge field and an associated gapless photon. I will briefly
explain how the pseudospin living on the vertex of the pyrochlore lattice
emerges from the combination of single-ion physics and crystal field symme
tries and insist on the importance of its non-Kramer nature to couple line
arly phonons. The coupling between magnetic and vibrational degrees of fre

ected by details in the atomic- scale surrounding. One strategy to control
the spin state and magnetic anisotropy is to embed the atoms into specifi
cally designed organic ligands. Moreover\, the surface plays a pivotal rol
e in the magnetic properties when it interacts with the magnetic core. Her
e\, we utilize scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy to character
ize the magnetic anisotropy and lifetimes of excited states of single para
magnetic molecules on a surface and point out possibilities to tune these.

\n\nWhile the problem of calculating critical exponents was believed to be

nhold true for metallic systems at present. In a recent study of the\nspin
-fermion model [1]\, Sur and Lee have found the first renormalization\ngro
up fixed point for a quantum-critical metal using an\nepsilon-expansion ar
ound $d=3$. The critical theory was shown to have a\nquasi-local boson and
one-dimensional electrons. However\, the nature of\npotential fixed point
s in the physical dimensionality $d=2$ and the\nvalues of critical exponen
ts are an important open problem. In this\ntalk\, I will therefore present
first attempts to tackle this problem\nwithin a Wilsonian-type renormaliz

ormalized a new research program for the study of causal relations in both
the classical and quantum cases. In this presentation we will discuss two
recent developments that highlight the\nvery fruitful interplay between t
he causal inference literature and problems in quantum information\, a\nco

here we allow for quantum systems as well as classical random variables. I
n a second part\, we will revisit nonlocality from a causal inference pers
pective and give an answer to the following question: How much do we need
to relax the causal assumptions entering in Bell's theorem to\nclassically
explain nonlocal correlations?

￼￼￼￼￼￼In 1964 the theoretical work of Higgs\, Guralnik\, Hagen
\, Kibble\, Brout\, and Englert led to the prediction that\, as a conseque
nce of the coupling bet- ween matter currents and gauge particles\, the ga
uge particles can acquire a non-zero mass. As Higgs phrased it\, „this p
henomenon is just the relati- vistic analog of the plasmon phenomenon to w
hich Anderson has drawn attention: that the scalar zero-mass excitations o
f a superconducting neu- tral Fermi gas become longitudinal plasmon modes
of finite mass when the gas is charged.“\n\nA superconducting gap has co
llective oscillations of its amplitude –equi- valent to the Higgs partic
le- and of its phase. As shown by Anderson in 1958\, the longitudinal and
transverse oscillations of the superconducting condensate coupled to the e
lectromagnetic field now acquire a finite mass\, which is seen experimenta
lly in the energy-momentum dispersion. In cer- tain superconductors two or
more condensates coexist. Weak coupling bet- ween the condensates then gi
ves rise to the so-called Leggett-exciton\, and the coupling to the electr
omagnetic field makes that two or more massive\nphoton-branches coexist. T
hese and many other phe- nomena in elementary par- ticles and condensed ma

Principle to Fermionic Entanglement\n\nThe Pauli exclusion principle is a
constraint on the natural occupation numbers of fermionic states. It has
been suspected for decades\, and only proved very recently\, that there is
a multitude of further constraints on these numbers\, generalizing the Pa
uli principle. Surprisingly\, these constraints are linear: they cut out a
geometric object known as a polytope. This is a beautiful mathematical re
sult\, but are there systems whose physics is governed by these constraint
s? \n\nIn order to address this question\, we studied a system of a few fe
rmions connected by springs. As we varied the spring constant\, the occupa
tion numbers moved within the polytope. The path they traced hugs very clo
se to the boundary of the polytope\, suggesting that the generalized const
raints affect the system. I will mention the implications of these finding
s for the structure of few-fermion ground states and then discuss the rela

ons\n\nManipulating small spin textures\, which can serve as bits of infor
mation\, by electric current is one of the main challenges in the field of
spintronics. Ferromagnetic skyrmions recently attracted a lot of attentio
n because they are small in size and are better than domain walls at avoid
ing pinning while moved by electric current. Meanwhile\, ferromagnetic sky
rmions still have disadvantages such as the presence of stray fields and t
ransverse dynamics\, making them harder to employ for spintronic applicati
ons. In this work\, we propose a novel topological object: the antiferroma
gnetic (AFM) skyrmion. This topological texture has no stray fields and we
show that its dynamics are faster compared to its ferromagnetic analogue.
We obtain the dependence of AFM skyrmion radius on the strength of Dzyalo
shinskii-Moriya interaction coming from relativistic spin-orbit effects an
d temperature. We find that the thermal properties\, e.g. such as the AFM
skyrmion radius and diffusion constant\, are rather different from those f
or ferromagnetic skyrmions. More importantly\, we show that due to unusual
topology the AFM skyrmions do not have a velocity component transverse to
the current and thus may be perfect candidates for spintronic application

ering of EuFe2As2 under pressure and at low temperature\n\nAfter the disco
very of superconductivity in a quasi-two-dimensional LaFeAs(OF) [1]\, the
oxygen-free K- doped BaFe2As2 with the well-known quasi-two-dimensional Th
Cr2Si2-type (I4/mmm) structure becomes superconducting at 38 K [2]. The pa
rent compound\, AFe2As2 (A = Ca\, Eu\, Sr\, and Ba)\, undergoes a commensu
rate spin density wave (SDW) antiferromagnetic transition. This SDW transi
tion in AFe2As2 is suppressed by applied pressure\, giving rise to superco
nductivity at low temperature. Since pressure tuning of a stoichiometric c
ompound is a powerful technique for understanding phase transitions\, AFe2
As2 is promising candidate for studying the mechanism of superconductivity
in these iron arsenide compounds.\nThe 57Fe and 151Eu nuclear forward sca
ttering (NFS) experiments under high pressure at low temperatures were car
ried out using the EuFe2As2 single-crystal sample on the NE1 beamline at t
he accumulation ring of the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization
and on the BL09XU beamline at SPring-8 to investigate the correlation betw
een magnetism and superconductivity in the pressure-induced EuFe2As2 super
conductor.\nWe find a microscopic coexistence of magnetism at the Fe and E
u sublattices and bulk superconductivity under pressure and at low tempera
ture. The magnetic structure of the Fe sublattice changes to a modified an
tiferromagnetic structure in the superconducting state from the commensura
te stripe-type antiferromagnetic one in the normal conducting state below
3 GPa. This modified antiferromagnetic structure in the superconducting st
ate has never been observed in the magnetic ordered states in AFe2As2 unde
r pressure and in substituted AFe2As2. The modified antiferromagnetic stat
e with superconductivity in EuFe2As2 under pressure most likely is caused
by the change of the electronic state of the Fe atom due to the effective
As-As hybridization induced by pressure in the tetragonal symmetry of the
crystal structure [3]. Furthermore\, the order parameter of the modified a
ntiferromagnetic state does not compete with that of superconductivity in
the pressure-induced EuFe2As2 superconductor.\nReferences\n[1] Y. Kamihara

wo-qubit gate operation toward scalable qubits for quantum computations. M
oreover the suitability of gate-defined QDs to quantum information technol

s could couple to photon states coherently. Here we show that the photon p

QDs.\nDouble QDs were fabricated in AlGaAs/GaAs quantum wells[1]. By synch

. First we show that the resonant inter-dot tunneling can offer a robust d

3]. In the two-electron regime\, the inter-dot tunneling of the photoelect
rons strongly depends on the relative spin orientation (parallel or anti-p
arallel) of the two QDs. Therefore by combining the resonant inter-dot tun
neling scheme with the Pauli spin effect\, we have realized the nondestruc
tive detection of single photoelectron spins. Finally\, we demonstrate the
angular momentum conversion from single photons to single electron spins
in the double QD from the dependence of the detected spins on the incident
photon polarization. We also discuss the future prospects of the photon-s
pin quantum interface.\nThis work was done in collaboration with T. Fujita

the position of fronts in the Fisher-KPP class\n\nA moving interface\, or
a front\, between a stable and an unstable medium is often described by an
equation such as the Fisher-KPP (Kolmogorov-Petrovsky-Piscounov) equation
. Such an equation appears in biology\, chemistry or theoretical physics.
Thirty years ago\, Bramson gave rigorous sharp estimates on the position o
f the front\, and\, fifteen years ago\, Ebert and van Saarloos heuristical
ly identified universal vanishing corrections. In this seminar\, I will pr
esent two new front equations which we believe to be in the same universal
ity class as the Fisher-KPP equation. For the first equation\, we can writ
e an exact relation between the initial condition and the positions of the
front at all times. For the second equation\, probabilistic methods give
very good estimates on the shape of the front at\nall times. In both cases
\, we can recover and make precise the universal vanishing corrections on
the position of the front.\n\n\n\nContact Person: Joachim Krug

models with Einstein internal spaces\n\nWe consider Kaluza-Klein (KK) mod

abilized by background matter (e.g.\, monopole form-fields). We perturb th
is background by a compact matter source (e.g.\, the system of gravitating
masses) with the zero pressure in the external/our space and an arbitrary
pressure in the internal space. We show that in the case of curved Einste
in spaces\, the Einstein equations are compatible only if the matter sourc
e is smeared over the internal space and perturbed metric components do no
t depend on coordinates of extra dimensions. The latter means the absence
of KK modes corresponding to the metric fluctuations. There are two possib
ilities to satisfy the gravitational tests. First\, the gravitating source
(e.g. our Sun) should have the black string equation of state in the inte
rnal space. This result does not depend on the size of the internal space.
Second\, if the equation of state in the internal space is arbitrary (e.g
. dust like)\, then the size of the internal space should be small enough
and radion is very massive particle.

dge of a 2D topological insulator\n\nWe study transport via edge modes in
a disordered 2D topological insulator allowing for the presence of non-pro
tected diffusive channels in addition to the topologically protected edge
channels. This scenario can be realized at the interface between two quant
um Hall system (class A)\, in a Weyl semimetal in a magnetic field (Class
A) or at the edge of a quantum spin Hall system (class AII). The edge tran
sport is described by a one-dimensional field theory in the form of a supe
rsymmetric non-linear sigma model with a topological term. The transfer-ma
trix formalism is employed to map the problem to the problem of finding th
e eigenfunctions of the Laplace operator on a symmetric superspace with an
additional vector potential. The latter problem is solved exactly\, enabl
ing us to obtain the full counting statistics and mesoscopic conductance f
luctuations in the system. Our main finding is that disorder is much more
effective in localizing the diffusive (non-protected) channels in the pres
ence of topologically protected ones. This manifests itself as a suppressi
on of the shot noise at scales much shorter than the localization length a
nd the appearance of a gap in the distribution function of transmission ei

DESCRIPTION:Pavel Ostrovsky\, MPI Stuttgart\n\nAnomalous Hall effect in we
akly disordered ferromagnets\n\nAnomalous Hall effect arises in systems wi
th both spin-orbit coupling and magnetization. Generally\, there are three
mechanisms contributing to anomalous Hall conductivity: intrinsic\, side
jump\, and skew scattering. The standard diagrammatic approach to the anom
alous Hall effect is limited to computation of ladder diagrams. We demonst
rate that this approach is insufficient. An important additional contribut
ion comes from diagrams with a single pair of intersecting disorder lines.
This contribution constitutes an inherent part of skew scattering on pair
s of closely located defects and essentially modifies previously obtained
results for anomalous Hall conductivity. We argue that this statement is g
eneral and applies to all models of anomalous Hall effect. We illustrate i
t by an explicit calculation for two-dimensional massive Dirac fermions an
d for the Rashba ferromagnet model with weak disorder. In the case of Dira
c electrons\, inclusion of the diagrams with crossed impurity lines revers
es the sign of the skew scattering term and strongly suppresses the total
Hall conductivity at high electron concentrations. In the 2D Rashba model\
, the proposed mechanism provides the only contribution to the anomalous H
all conductivity in the most relevant metallic regime.\n\n\nContact Person

in Fe or Co doped Sr2IrO4 [1] and the SOC tuning magnetism in Sr3NiIrO6 [
2]. However\, the SOC turns insignificant in 3D double perovskites Ca2FeOs
O6 and Sr2NiIrO6 due to the band effect. In contrast to the high-temperatu

DESCRIPTION:Marko Kralj\, Institute of Physics - Zagreb\n\nComplex structu
res based on epitaxial graphene\n\nWhile epitaxial growth secures a source
of high-quality graphene for large-scale applications\, it also provides
ample possibilities to study and tune the properties of graphene in terms
of its structure\, electronic bands or electron correlations. In particula
r\, the choice of the substrate and growing conditions can be considered a
s a tool to form more complex structures based on epitaxial graphene.\nIn
this talk I will first present low energy electron microscopy characteriza
tion of graphene on Ir(111) and discuss the "intrinsic" stress-relaxation
features\, wrinkles\, which are a result of graphene growth process on man
y substrates. It will be shown how the specific substrate interaction lead
s to a macroscopic quasi-hexagonal network of wrinkles. Also\, the frustra
tion within the network is identified as a governing force for the formati
on of complex wrinkle profiles with multiple lobes. Furthermore\, the use
of vicinal substrates for the growth of epitaxial graphene will be explore
d as a route for the uniaxial engineering of graphene. Based on scanning t
unneling microscopy and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy experime
ntal results as well as van der Waals-density functional theory calculatio
ns\, we propose a general mechanism for the observed vicinal substrate res
tructuring induced by graphene. Moreover\, by comparing graphene grown on
flat and vicinal Ir substrates\, we observe locally variable doping\, the
Dirac cone anisotropy\, and a pronounced localization of states at step ed
ges. In particular\, the anisotropy is associated to a nanoscale potential
modulation induced by the uniaxial pattern\, and the pronounced states to
an enhanced chemical binding and charge transfer. We will also show by at
omic force microscopy and Raman spectroscopy that upon the transfer of suc
h epitaxial graphene to a flat substrate\, the uniaxial strain imposed by
the growth process on a vicinal substrate is macroscopically preserved.\n\

DESCRIPTION:Johannes Reuther\, FU Berlin\n\nClassification of spin liquids
on the square lattice with strong spin-orbit coupling\n\nThe investigatio
n of spin liquids is a fascinating field in condensed\nmatter physics that
is increasingly motivated by experiments. Exhaustive\nclassifications of
spin liquids have been carried out in several systems\,\nparticularly when
full SU(2) spin-rotation symmetry is present. Systematic\nstudies that ex
plore strongly spin-orbit-coupled magnetic compounds (for\nwhich there are
many experimental examples) are\, however\, relatively\nscarce. We report
on a classification of Z_2 spin liquids on the square\nlattice when SU(2)
spin symmetry is maximally lifted. Using projective\nsymmetry group metho
ds\, we find that\, surprisingly\, the lifting of spin\nsymmetry yields va
stly more spin liquid states compared to SU(2)-invariant\nsystems. A gener
ic feature of the SU(2)-broken case is that the spinons\nnaturally undergo
p+ip pairing\; consequently\, many of these Z_2 spin\nliquids feature a t
opologically nontrivial spinon band structure\nsupporting gapless Majorana
edge states. These boundary modes are often\nprotected by a combination o
f time reversal and lattice symmetries and\nhence resemble recently propos
ed topological crystalline superconductors.\n\nContact Person: Simon Trebs

sequences\n\nAbsent words are sub-sequences of letters that cannot be foun
d in a given text. Minimal absent words (MAWs) are absent words all of the
sub-sequences of which can be found in the text.\nIt has been observed fo
r some time that the length distribution of MAWs in genome sequences have
a curious two-mode structure with on the one hand many long fairly short M
AWs ("the\nbulk") and on the other hand some very long MAWs ("the tail").
I will show that the first feature arises from statistical sampling of sub
-sequences from a random genome while the second\ncan be explained by a si
mple probabilistic model of genome evolution. Tail MAWs also seem to carry
biological information as will be discussed in the talk. We were led to t
he study of\nMAWs from a biotechnological problem of optimal tag design fo
r (tagged) RNA-sequencing. I will therefore also describe some of the resu
lts obtained by this method to distinguish primary\nfrom processed RNA in
the human pathogen Enterococcus faecalis\, including the discovery of many

effects in quantum gravity and phenomenological implications\n\nWe show t
hat in the first order gravity theory coupled to axions\, there exist new
kind of instanton configurations (solutions of Euclidean equations of moti
on) whose instanton number can be interpreted as the torsional Nieh-Yan to
pological index. These torsional pseudoparticles turn out to be the Giddin
gs-Strominger wormholes. Importantly\, these instantons are shown to induc

ng to a rich vacuum structure exactly similar to the famous theta vacuum o
f gauge theories. This nonperturbative quantum vacuum is characterised by
a topological vacuum angle\, which can be identified with the Barbero-Immi
rzi parameter. We conclude with a discussion on how this nonperturbative v
acuum structure in quantum gravity\, hitherto unnoticed\, could have impor
tant implications in the context of cosmology and various parity violating
phenomena in particle physics. In particular\, based on this framework\,
we propose a possible solution to the cosmological constant

ate a finite group\, and hence do not provide universality. For abelian an
yon models\, we find that the logical action of U is contained in a proper
subgroup of the generalized Clifford group. In the case D(Z2)\, which des
cribes Kitaev's toric code\, this represents a tightening of statement pre
viously obtained within the stabilizer framework (PRL 110:170503). For non
-abelian models\, we find that such automorphisms are very limited: for ex
ample\, there is no non-trivial gate for Fibonacci anyons. For Ising anyon
s\, protected gates are elements of the Pauli group. These results are der
ived by relating such automorphisms to symmetries of the underlying anyon
model: protected gates realize automorphisms of the Verlinde algebra. We a
dditionally use the compatibility with basis changes to characterize the l
ogical action. \n\nContact Person: David Gross

\, hysteretic behaviour\, reversal mechanism\, and normal modes of skyrmio

have the potential to provide solutions for low-power\, high-density data
storage and processing. One of the major challenges in developing skyrmio
n-based devices is the skyrmions' magnetic stability in confined helimagne
tic nanostructures. Through a systematic study of equilibrium states\, usi
ng a full three-dimensional micromagnetic model including demagnetisation
effects\, we demonstrate that skyrmionic textures are the lowest energy st
ates in helimagnetic thin film nanostructures at zero external magnetic fi
eld and in absence of magnetocrystalline anisotropy. We also report the re
gions of metastability for non-ground state equilibrium configurations. We
show that bistable skyrmionic textures undergo hysteretic behaviour betwe
en two energetically equivalent skyrmionic states with different core orie
ntation\, even in absence of both magnetocrystalline and demagnetisation-b
ased shape anisotropies\, suggesting the existence of novel Dzyaloshinskii
-Moriya-based shape anisotropy. We also show that the skyrmionic texture c
ore reversal dynamics is facilitated by the Bloch point occurrence and pro
pagation. Finally\, we report the resonance frequencies and corresponding
normal modes of all identified equilibrium states as well as how the reson
ance frequencies change depending on both the external magnetic bias field

he purely dissipative dynamics of a large system of s = 1/2 quantum spins
or\, equivalently\, hard-core bosons on a regular lattice. In the first pa
rt of the talk\, we introduce the underlying quantum master equation (Lind
blad equation) and exemplify how it can be used to determine the equations
of motion for correlation functions. In the second part of the talk\, we
resolve the real-time dynamics of the dissipative process. This allows us
to identify different characteristic time scales for the dynamics for whic
h we determine their finite-size scaling. We introduce the concept of cumu
lative entanglement distribution to quantify multi-particle entanglement a
nd show that the considered protocol serves as an efficient method to prep
are a macroscopically entangled Bose-Einstein condensate.\n\nContact Perso

etween the quantum information\ntheory and the black hole physics is based
on the conjecture of interpreting\nentanglement entropy as the black hole
entropy\, which passed various\nnumerical tests. In the present talk\, we
add yet another strong supportive\nevidence to this conjecture\, that is
we numerically show that the\ntemperature of entanglement is same as the H
awking temperature of black hole\nfor massless free scalar fields. Also we
show the validity of the first law\nof black hole mechanics using entangl

DESCRIPTION:Arijeet Pal\, University of Oxford\n\nFinite temperature mobil
ity edge in many-body localized systems\n\nThe ergodic hypothesis for an i
solated quantum system has been a subject of intense investigation in rece
nt years. Under what conditions does a quantum system thermalize in the ab
sence of a heat bath? It has been argued that in the presence of strong di
sorder\, a system loses its ability to equilibrate itself even at infinite
temperature\, a phenomena now known as many-body localization (MBL). I wi
ll review the basic notions of this new phase of matter characterized by i
ts dynamics. Due to the violation of equilibrium statistical physics in th
is phase\, MBL protects topological and symmetry-breaking orders in situat
ions where they are destroyed at thermal equilibrium.\n\nIn this talk I wi
ll discuss the phase transition between MBL and ergodic phases tuned by en
ergy density\, leading to a finite temperature mobility edge. As concrete
examples I will focus on the one-dimensional random-field Heisenberg and t
he infinite-dimensional quantum random energy models. The latter has been
a useful mean-field model for analyzing the thermodynamic spin-glass trans
ition. Its tractability allows the comparison between analytical and numer
ical study of a finite temperature mobility edge.\n\nContact Person: Phili

DESCRIPTION:Michael Scherer\, University of Heidelberg\n\nCompetition of d
ensity waves and quantum multicritical behavior in Dirac materials\n\nI di
scuss the competition of spin- and charge-density waves and their quantum
multicritical behavior for the semimetal-insulator transitions of low-dime
nsional Dirac fermions. Employing the effective Gross-Neveu-Yukawa theory
with two order parameters as a model for graphene and a growing number of
other two-dimensional Dirac materials allows us to describe the physics ne
ar the multicritical point at which the semimetallic and the two ordered p
hases meet. With the functional renormalization group approach\, we reveal
a complex structure of fixed points. Their the stability properties decis
ively depend on the number of Dirac fermions Nf. We give estimates for the
critical exponents and observe crucial quantitative corrections as compar
ed to a previous first-order epsilon expansion. For small Nf\, the univers
al behavior near the multicritical point is determined by the chiral Heise
nberg universality class supplemented by a decoupled\, purely bosonic\, Is
ing sector. At large Nf\, a novel fixed point with nontrivial couplings be
tween all sectors becomes stable. At intermediate Nf\, including the graph
ene case (Nf=2) no stable and physically admissible fixed point exists. We
therefore suggest that Graphene's phase diagram in the vicinity of the in
tersection between the semimetal\, antiferromagnetic and staggered density
phases is governed by a triple point exhibiting first-order transitions.\

e\, we discuss universal aspects of quantum dynamics present in driven ope
n many-particle systems. Oftentimes\, driven systems show full decoherence
at large wavelength\, but we present two situations which do not follow t
his generic pattern. The first concerns the critical dynamics in a driven
open system with a dark state realizable in microcavity arrays\, and the o
ther one an ensemble of Rydberg atoms\, in which coherent quantum dynamics
leads to a variant of a non-equilibrium absorbing state transition withou
t direct classical counterpart.\nIn part two\, we discuss\, in a number co
nserving framework\, an exactly solvable model of interacting fermions sup
porting non-local zero-energy Majorana-like edge excitations. The construc
tion draws intuition from an approach of targeted dissipative cooling into
topologically non-trivial states. The model has an exactly solvable line\
, on varying the density of fermions\, described by a topologically non-tr
ivial ground state wave-function. We characterize its thermodynamic and to
pological properties. Knowledge of the ground state wavefunction allows us
to construct analytically number conserving braiding operators\, which ar

o a quantum variable leads to a plethora of novel many-body phenomena\, un
obtainable in classical optical setups. \n First\, we prove that the quan
tum backaction of a weak global measurement can efficiently compete with s
tandard short-range processes in a strongly correlated system (ultracold b
osons or fermions in an optical lattice)\, leading to novel phenomena. We
demonstrate generation of the multimode generalizations of Schroedinger ca
t and NOON states\, nonlocal quantum Zeno dynamics\, and non-Hermitian pro
cesses without the need of postselection. For fermions\, we show the measu
rement-induced antiferromagnetic states\, as well as the protection and br
eak-up of strongly interacting fermion pairs. The backaction results in th
e generation of genuinely multipartite entangled modes of matter waves\, w
hich show non-Gaussian properties beyond quantum optical analogues. \n Se
cond\, trapping quantum gases inside a high-Q cavity\, creates a paradigm
of quantum optical lattices. We demonstrate the emergence of novel many-bo
dy phases: delocalized dimers\, trimers\, etc. of matter waves\, even beyo
nd the density orders such as density waves and supersolids. We show that
cavity QED of strongly correlated systems can efficiently simulate systems
with short- and long-range interactions\, while still profiting from the
collective enhancement of the light-matter interaction.\n\nContact Person:

DESCRIPTION:Alessandro Fasse\, University of Cologne\n\nNaked Singularitie
s in the canonical quantized LTB-Model\n\nThe final state of a spherically
symmetric star always admits a singularity at its center if only gravitat
ional effects are considered. This singularity is covered by an event hori
zon in most cases. However\, the existence of singularities in final theor
y of Quantum Gravity is so far unclear. For some initial conditions to the
matter distribution it is possible that the formed singularity might be t
emporary visible. This case is called a naked singularity and is of centra
l interest in this thesis. Their existence implies the breakdown of Genera
l Relativity itself\, since it manifests that future is unpredictable from
initial data alone. Anything could form in the central singularity due to
the presence of an infinitely large energy density. It was shown that ini
tial conditions leading to naked singularities are physically meaningful a
nd cannot be neglected. The following question arises: Are singularities a
n artifact of General Relativity itself and can be resolved by taking quan
tum mechanical effects into account? Here we show\, that for a specific mo
del containing a naked singularity\, we obtain an everywhere vanishing wav
e function. This result can be interpreted as the avoidance of the classic
ally allowed naked singularity. Furthermore\, our toy model shows certain
similarities to the Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker metric (FLRW metri
c). We show that a specific perturbation around this solution is also quan
tum mechanically forbidden. Our results demonstrate that canonical quantiz
ation is at least in our case capable of contributing to the ongoing debat
e on singularity avoidance. However\, we consider only one case of a naked
singularity and a result the general case of (naked) singularities still
remains unclear.

quantum physics has recently revealed relaxation towards a non-thermal st
atistical ensemble (Generalised Gibbs Ensemble or shortly GGE) that retain
s more memory of the initial state than the conventional thermal ensemble.
The information content of this ensemble remains however a riddle. By ana
lytically studying the time evolution after abrupt changes (quantum quench
es) in extended one-dimensional quantum systems\, we demonstrate relaxatio
n according to the GGE in various different settings and specify the infor
mation that survives in the stationary state. In the case of evolution und
er a gapless non-interacting Hamiltonian on the other hand\, we observe th
e failure of the GGE and find evidence of a novel type of equilibration ch
aracterised by the preservation of non-Gaussian correlations of the initia
l state. We propose an experimental check of our predictions based on curr

space-time dimensions as a function of fermion flavor number N exhibits tw
o well-known phases: at large N > Nc1 the system is in a conformal gapless
state\, while for small N < Nc2 the fermions are expected to develop a dy
namical mass due to spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking. Using epsilon ex
pansion near the lower critical dimension of two\, in combination with the
recent results on the generalization of the F theorem to continuous dimen
sion\, we show that Nc1 > Nc2. There is therefore an intermediate range of
values of N at which a third phase is stabilized. We demonstrate that thi
s phase is characterized by spontaneous breaking of Lorentz symmetry\, in
which a composite vector boson field acquires a vacuum expectation value w
ith the fermions and the photon remaining massless.\n\nContact Person: Die

n\n\nNetwork Dynamics as an Inverse Problem: Reconstruction from Time Seri
es\n\nHow single units interact in a complex network fundamentally underli
es its collective dynamics. Yet\, identifying the physical structure of in
teractions from recorded time series still poses a great challenge. Up-to-
date methods either require (i) a detailed prior knowledge of the units' d
ynamical features\, (ii) to externally drive the network or (iii) the netw
ork dynamics to be at stable states\, such as fixed points or limit cycles
. Here we develop a theory to reveal physical interactions of networks tha
t relies on recorded time series only. By decomposing the dynamics of sing
le units in terms of network interactions of different orders (pairs\, tri
plets\, quadruplets\,...)\, we pose network reconstruction as an error min
imization problem. We propose a greedy algorithm to solve such minimizatio
n problems. Our approach is principally model independent\, ensuring its g
enerality and applicability in different fields and making it particularly
suitable when structural connections are desired\, dynamical features are
unknown and perturbing the network is infeasible. Thus\, our approach may
serve as a key stepping stone for the expanding field of model-independen

tic interface growth. There has been much recent\ninterest in the one-poin
t probability distribution P(H\, t) of height H of the evolving interface
at\ntime t. I will show how one can use the weak-noise theory (also known
as the optimal fluctuation\nmethod\, the macroscopic fluctuation theory\,
or simply WKB) to evaluate P(H\, t) for different initial\nconditions. At
small t and H\, P(H\,t) is Gaussian\, but its tails are non-Gaussian and h
ighly asymmetric.\nIn a proper moving frame\, one of the tails agrees at a
ll times with the asymptotics of the Tracy-Widom distribution (for the fla
t and curved interface)\, and of the Baik-Rains distribution (for the stat
ionary interface)\, previously observed at long times. The other tail disp
lays a behavior that differs from the known long-time asymptotics. We argu
e that this tail should be also observable at long times once |H| is very
large. The case of stationary interface is especially interesting. Here at
short times the large deviation function of the height exhibits a singula

DESCRIPTION:Michael Walter\, Stanford University\n\nKronecker coefficients
\, moment polytopes\, and computational complexity\n\nThe Kronecker coeffi
cients are among the most fascinating objects in\nclassical representation
theory. While many of their fundamental\nproperties remain mysterious\, t
he past decade has brought some\nsignificant advances\, in part through ne
w and surprising connections\nto quantum physics and computational complex
ity theory. In this talk\,\nI will give an introduction to this subject an
d its motivations\, and\ndiscuss some recent results.\n\nSpecifically\, I
will explain that the problem of deciding positivity\nof Kronecker coeffic
ients is NP-hard in general\, while their\nasymptotic non-vanishing\, as e
ncoded by certain moment polytopes\, can\nbe decided in NP and coNP (arXiv
:1410.8144\, 1507.02955\, 1511.03675).\nThis is in marked contrast to cele
brated results on the\nLittlewood-Richardson coefficients and the Horn ine
qualities\, and it\nsuggests that representation theory can be strictly ea
sier in the\nasymptotic regime. Lastly\, and somewhat counter-intuitively\
, our\nhardness result can be turned into an efficient algorithm for study
ing\nthe failure of the saturation property for Kronecker coefficients\,\n
which is at present only poorly understood.

DESCRIPTION:Boye Buyens\, Ghent University\n\nGauge field theories: the Ha
miltonian picture\n\nMotivated by the entanglement properties of low-energ
y states of local Hamiltonians I introduce matrix product states (MPS) as
a variational ansatz for the study of one dimensional quantum many-body sy
stems. Then I apply the MPS formalism to study 1+1 dimensional QED\, also
know as the massive Schwinger model. I explain how MPS are used to compute
an approximation of the ground state and discuss its entanglement propert
ies. Next\, MPS are used to study non-equilibrium dynamics by a quench in
the form of a uniform background electric field. When the electric backgro
und field is small\, the results are explained by investigating the low-en
ergy spectrum of the Hamiltonian. For larger values of the quench we obser
ve thermalisation. Finally\, I discuss how the MPS framework is generalise
d to higher dimensions and can be used to simulate real-time evolution.\n\

e realized in certain\ntwo-dimensional systems at low temperature and high
magnetic field\, leads\nto many interesting properties\, such as the poss
ibility to have anyonic\nquasiparticles that are neither bosons nor fermio
ns. There is currently\nmuch interest in investigating the possibilities f
or having fractional\nquantum Hall physics in lattice systems\, both becau
se it may lead to new\nways to realize the effect\, and because the lattic
e gives rise to new\nfeatures and opportunities. Here\, we propose a quite
general approach\nbased on conformal field theory to obtain lattice fract
ional quantum Hall\nmodels. The models have analytical ground states\, and
we use Monte Carlo\nsimulations to compute\, e.g.\, topological entanglem
ent entropies and shape\nand statistics of anyons. We also discuss how one
can interpolate between\nlattice and continuum fractional quantum Hall mo
dels and propose a scheme\nto implement a related model in ultracold atoms
in optical lattices.

DESCRIPTION:Reinhard Werner\, Leibniz-Universität\, Hannover\n\nMeasureme
nt uncertainty relations\n\n\nThe textbook uncertainty relation due to Ken
nard\, Weyl and Robertson is a "preparation uncertainty relation"\, which
constrains how sharply the position and momentum distributions of a fixed
state can be concentrated. It has nothing to say about error -disturbance
tradeoffs for setups like Heisenberg's gamma-ray microscope from 1927. For
mulated by Heisenberg only as a heuristic principle\, this tradeoff links
the accuracy of an approximate position measurement to the possibility to
retrieve the momentum after the measurement. We generalize this problem to
a simpler one\, namely the quality of optimal joint measurements of pos
ition and momentum. It is then only required that a device provides a posi
tion value and a momentum value in each shot\, like the microscope and th
e momentum retrieval in the error/disturbance case. We will show quantita
tively that the distribution of the position outputs must in general diffe
r from that of an ideal position measurement\, and similarly for momentum\
, where the respective deviations satisfy a relation looking formally like
the textbook preparation uncertainty relation.\n\nOur setup is conceptual
ly straightforward and covers arbitrary pairs or tuples of observables. It
turns out that the equality of the preparation and measurement uncertaint
y bounds is due to the high symmetry of canonical pairs of observables lin
ked via Fourier transform. For generic pairs of observables the measuremen
t uncertainty is larger than the preparation uncertainty.\n\nContact Perso

DESCRIPTION:Regina Dittmann\, Forschungszentrum Juelich\n\nUncovering nano
scale changes in the electronic structure during the operation of complex
oxide memristive devices\n\nOxide-based memristive devices\, which exhibit
two or more resistive states under electrical biasing\, are promising can
didates for future non-volatile memories as well as for active elements fo
r neuromorphic computing. It has become widely accepted that memristive sw
itching in oxides is in most cases connected with a voltage-driven oxygen
vacancy movement and a resulting metal-to-insulator transition. However\,
the current knowledge of the microscopic details is very limited so far. O
ne of the obstacles for its further elucidation has been that the net chan
ges of the atomic and electronic structure during memristive switching are
very small and occur primarily at the electrode interface or within nanos
cale filaments. \nBy employing different approaches of X-ray based spectro
microscopy\, we could prove the formation of an oxygen vacancy enriched fi
lament in epitaxial SrTiO3 thin film devices\, which occurs preferentially
at preformed positions such as extended defects. For high current operati
on\, electric biasing goes along with the formation of SrO at the electrod
e interface which has a significant impact on the stabilization of the res
istance states of the devices. \nIn operando studies of SrTiO3 devices wit
h photoelectron-transparent graphene electrodes enabled us to detect rever
sible changes of the O K-edge spectra within spatially confined regions of
the devices. Based on these results\, we obtain for the first time a quan
titative estimate of the amount of oxygen vacancies shifted during the swi

Electronics: Finding Simplicity in Complexity\n\nConjugated organic molecu
les and polymers enable the demonstration of flexible semiconductor device
s that can be processed at low temperature onto different substrates with
variable form factors. Over the past decades\, device performance has impr
oved greatly as a large number of new compounds were synthesized and teste
d in various device geometries. While molecular-level models have been suc
cessful in providing a rational design of molecules and polymers for highe
r performance\, models to predict the morphology of thin films and consequ
ently macroscopic physical properties\, such as charge mobility\, remain e
lusive. The lack of such models has resulted in a trial and error approach
and limits our ability to predict ultimate performance. Furthermore\, org
anic solids exhibit photophysical properties that are unique and different
from those of conventional inorganic semiconductors. The question then ar
ises whether semiconductor equations developed for inorganic semiconductor
devices can be applied to describe the physical properties of organic ele
ctronic devices. In this talk\, we will highlight some fundamental differe
nces in the physical properties between organic and inorganic semiconducto
rs\, but show that general models such as the Shockley diode equation can
be applied to organic photodiodes and solar cells. In particular\, we will
emphasize the importance to understand and mitigate parasitic effects suc

electronics over novel materials to molecular machines. Various examples o
f functional molecules\, studied by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) un

molecular building blocks are connected to two-dimensional networks or on
e-dimensional chains\, which can act as molecular wires. On the other hand
\, chemical processes within individual molecular can be controlled via th

ic-scale surroundings cause drastic changes in their switching probability
. It could be shown that the rate of an intramolecular hydrogen transfer r
eaction can be tuned up and down by single atoms in the vicinity of the mo
lecule. Single atoms were also found to modify the appearance of adsorbed
molecules in STM images during their diffusion underneath the molecules. A

all effect in topological insulators and superconductors\n\nIn the first p
art of the talk\, the recent advance in the theory of the anomalous Hall e
ffect is reviewed. Remarkably\, it was shown that diagrams with crossed im
purity lines yield an anomalous Hall conductivity that is independent of i
mpurity concentration\, and thus is of the same order as other known extri
nsic side jump and skew scattering terms. Based on a semiclassical interpr
etation\, we explain that such diagrams represent diffractive skew scatter
ing contributions originating from rare two-impurity complexes. \n\nNext\,
results for the anomalous Hall conductivity sigma_xy of the surface state
s in cubic topological Kondo insulators are presented. We consider a gener
ic model for the surface states with three Dirac cones on the (001) surfac
e: The Fermi velocity\, the Fermi momentum and the Zeeman energy in differ
ent Dirac pockets may be unequal. The microscopic impurity potential media
tes mixed intra and interband extrinsic scattering processes. We discuss v
arious special cases of our results and the experimental relevance of our
study in the context of the recent hysteretic magnetotransport data in SmB
6 samples.\n\nThe last part of the talk is devoted to our recent study of
the temperature dependent anomalous ac Hall conductance sigma_xy(omega\, T
) for a 2D chiral p-wave superconductor [3]. This quantity determines the
polar Kerr effect\, as it was observed in Sr2RuO4. We concentrate on a sin
gle band model with generic\, isotropic dispersion relation subjected to r
are\, weak impurities treated in the Born approximation. Again\, the empha
sis is on diffractive skew scattering from quantum impurity complexes. It
is explicitly shown\, that this effect contributes to leading order in imp
urity concentration and is thus comparable to earlier results within the s
ame model.\n\n\n\nContact Person: Dmitry Bagrets

eterministic cellular automaton driven by stochastic boundaries\n\nWe prop
ose an interacting many-body space-time-discrete Markov chain model\, whic
h is composed of an integrable deterministic and reversible cellular autom
aton (the rule 54 of [Bobenko et al\, CMP 158\, 127 (1993)]) on a finite o
ne-dimensional lattice\, and local stochastic Markov chains at the two lat
tice boundaries which provide chemical baths for absorbing or emitting the
solitons. Ergodicity and mixing of this many-body Markov chain is proven
for generic values of bath parameters\, implying existence of a unique non
-equilibrium steady state. The latter is constructed exactly and explicitl
y in terms of a particularly simple form of matrix product ansatz which is
termed a patch ansatz. This gives rise to an explicit computation of obse
rvables and k-point correlations in the steady state as well as the constr
uction of a nontrivial set of local conservation laws. Feasibility of an e
xact solution for the full spectrum and eigenvectors (decay modes) of the
Markov matrix is suggested as well. We conjecture that such ideas can pave
the road towards a theory of integrability of boundary driven classical d
eterministic lattice systems.\n\nContact Person: Zala Lenarcic

rface dynamics with correlated noise: Emergent symmetries and non-universa
l observables\n\nThe Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation provides one of th
e simplest non trivial examples of a Non-Equilibrium Steady State. Its uni
versal features capture a very wide range of physical phenomena ranging fr
om varied types of interfaces to turbulent hydrodynamic flows or thermodyn
amics of polymers in noisy environments. Enormous progress has been made i
n the last 10 years thanks to an exact derivation of the statistics of the
KPZ dynamics in the case of one-dimensional systems driven by a stochasti
c white noise. The cases of higher dimensions and/or\ncorrelated noise rem
ain however unsolved. \n\nIn this presentation I discuss the physics of a
one-dimensional interface that is subjected to a noise with smooth spatio-
temporal correlations. This problem was previously studied numerically as
well as with the Replica Trick in a Gaussian variational approach.It was f
ound that the small scale features depend on the details of the microscopi
c noise while (up to the overall amplitude factors) the exact solution wit
h white noise governs the large scales. In the present work\, Functional R
enormalisation Group (FRG) methods are employed in order to resolve the no
n-perturbative features of KPZ dynamics. The FRG makes it possible to foll
ow the renormalisation group flow from its initial conditions all the way
down to its fixed point\, that is from microscopic dynamics to the large d
istance properties. I show that the exact solution emerges on large scales
independently of the details of the\nnoise correlations. Moreover the sma
ll scale features (and their dependence on the particular choice of the no
ise correlations) are resolved and compared to direct numerical simulation

e and symmetry protected topological phase\n\nIn my talk I will introduce
the spin liquid phases that occur in kagome antiferromagnets\, and discuss
their physical origin that are closely related with the newly discovered
symmetry protected topological phase (SPT). I will first present our numer
ical (DMRG) study on the kagome XXZ spin model that exhibits two distinct
spin liquid phases\, namely the chiral spin liquid and the kagome spin liq
uid (the groundstate of the nearest neighbor kagome Heisenberg model). Bot
h phases extend from the extreme easy-axis limit\, through SU(2) symmetric
point\, to the pure easy-plane limit. The two phases are separated by a c
ontinuous phase transition. Motivated by these numerical results\, I will
then focus on the easy-axis kagome spin system\, and reformulate it as a l
attice gauge model. Such formulation enables us to achieve a controlled th
eoretical description for the spin liquid phases. We then show that the ch
iral spin liquid is indeed a gauged U(1) SPT phase. On the other hand\, we
also propose that the kagome spin liquid is a critical spin liquid phase\
, which can be considered as a gauged deconfined critical point between a
SPT and a superfluid phase. \n\n\nContact Person: Simon Trebst

rana Reflection Positivity With Applications In Strongly Correlated System
s\n\nIn this talk we discuss the method of Majorana reflection positivity\
nand its applications in the study of strongly correlated systems.\n\nThe
first application concerns the ground state degeneracy of\ninteracting spi
nless fermions. Based on Majorana reflection\npositivity\, we prove rigour
ously that the ground state of this model\nis either unique or doubly dege
nerate if the lattice size N is even\,\nand is always doubly degenerate if
N is odd. This proof holds in all\ndimensions with arbitrary lattice stru
ctures.\n\nThe second application is about the sign problem in quantum Mon
te\nCarlo simulations. We examine this problem with a new perspective\nbas
ed on the Majorana reflection positivity. Two sufficient\nconditions are p
roven for the absence of the fermion sign problem. Our\nproof provides a u
nified description for nearly all the interacting\nlattice fermion models
that are previously known to be free of the\nsign problem. It also allows
us to identify a number of new\nsign-problem-free interacting fermion mode
ls.\n\nContact Person: Alexander Alldridge

ecent developments include synthetic gauge fields for neutral atoms\, whic
h allow the simulation of topologically nontrivial phases of matter with s
trong interactions. I will discuss two examples: \n\nWe consider a spinfu
l and time-reversal invariant version of the Hofstadter-Harper problem\, w
hich has been realized in ultracold atoms\, with an additional staggered p
otential and spin-orbit coupling. Without interactions\, the system exhibi
ts various phases such as topological and normal insulator\, metal and sem
i-metal phases with two or even more Dirac cones. Using real-space dynamic
al mean-field theory (DMFT)\, we investigate the stability of the Quantum
Spin Hall state in the presence of strong interactions. To test the bulk-b
oundary correspondence between edge mode parity and bulk Chern index of th
e interacting system\, we calculate an effective topological Hamiltonian b
ased on the local self-energy of DMFT. \n\nWe furthermore investigate the
Haldane honeycomb lattice tight-binding model\, for bosons with additiona
l local Hubbard interactions. We analyze the ground state phase diagram at
filling one\, and uncover three distinct phases: a uniform superfluid (SF
)\, a chiral superfluid (CSF) and a plaquette Mott insulator with local cu

ows for the stabilization of exotic state of matters which\, in one- and t
wo-dimensions\, break the typical Luttinger and Landau liquid paradigms. I
n the first part talk\, I will present discuss the basic classical statist

theoretical and numerical approaches\, the phase diagram of the model wil
l be presented. In particular\, I will focus on the existence of a Cluster
Luttinger liquid phase\, which cannot be captured using conventional ‘c
oarse graining’ schemes of Abelian bosonization\, and show how this phas
e is separated by a conventional Luttinger liquid via a phase transition w
ith emergent conformal supersymmetry. In the second part of the talk\, I w
ill discuss the fate of such states and transitions in two-dimensions usin
g numerical simulations. In this context\, strong soft-shoulder interactio
ns lead to a dramatic change of the ‘Bose surface’\, and stabilize a p
hase with no broken symmetry but still displaying quasi-long-range coheren
ce\, of Bose-metal type. The mechanism for the stabilization of such exoti
c liquids is clusterization\, which defines a low-energy manifold displayi
ng extensive ground state degeneracy and\, and the same time\, suppress su
perfluid order. Finally\, I will present some considerations on the experi

magnetism\, superconductivity\, and orbital order in 5-pocket model for ir
on-based superconductors\n\nWe report the results of the full parquet reno
rmalization group (pRG) analysis of the 5-pocket model for Fe-based super
conductors (three hole pockets and two electron pockets). We depart from t
he low-energy orbital model and use as input the fact that excitations nea
r all five pockets are made out of xz\, yz\, and xy d-orbitals. We argue\
, based on symmetry that there are 40 different coupling constants which d
escribe the interactions between low-energy fermions and flow under pRG.
The pRG analysis reveals four stable fixed trajectories. They can be group
ed into two classes\, where the 5-pocket model effectively reduces either
to a 3-pocket or a 4-pocket one. We argue that in both cases superconducti
vity wins over SDW if all five Fermi energies are small and pRG runs over
a wide energy range. The resulting superconducting symmetry is !\n of s+-
fo\n r\nm for both effective models\, but the magnitude of the gap differ
s between the hole pockets at (0\,0) and (pi\,pi) in the 1Fe zone. SDW mag
netism is of stripe type in the 3-pocket and of checkerboard type in the 4
-pocket case. Additionally a spontaneous orbital order develops before su
perconductivity that splits the band degeneracy at high-symmetry points.

DESCRIPTION:M.F. Atiyah\, N.S. Manton\, and B.F. Schroers\n\nGeometric mod
els of matter\n\n\nInspired by soliton models\, we propose a description o
f static particles in terms of Riemannian 4-manifolds with self-dual Weyl
tensor. For electrically charged particles\, the 4-manifolds are non-compa
ct and asymptotically fibred by circles over physical 3-space. This is aki
n to the Kaluza–Klein description of electromagnetism\, except that we e
xchange the roles of magnetic and electric fields\, and only assume the bu
ndle structure asymptotically\, away from the core of the particle in ques
tion. We identify the Chern class of the circle bundle at infinity with mi
nus the electric charge and\, at least provisionally\, the signature of th
e 4-manifold with the baryon number. Electrically neutral particles are de
scribed by compact 4-manifolds. We illustrate our approach by studying the
Taub–Newman\, Unti\, Tamburino (Taub–NUT) manifold as a model for the
electron\, the Atiyah–Hitchin manifold as a model for the proton\, CP2
with the Fubini– Study metric as a model for the neutron and S4 with its
standard metric as a model for the neutrino.\n\nContact Person: Alexander

agnetotransport properties of SrRuO3/manganite superlattices and trilayers
. The itinerant ferromagnet SrRuO3 has a comparatively high conductivity a
nd large magnetocrystalline anisotropy and can be grown in excellent quali
ty in these all-perovskite heterostructures. The properties of the superla
ttices are rather complex showing a transition from orthorhombic to tetrag
onal crystalline symmetry of the SrRuO3 layers coupled with large changes
in the magnetocrystalline and magnetoresistance anisotropy. Embedding of L
a0.7Ba0.3MnO3 within SrRuO3 layers leads to the stabilization of ferromagn
etism above 150 K in single unit cell thick manganite layers. This appears
to be related to an interfacial anomalous Hall effect observed in the sup

continuous tensor networks\, one can see how the ground state of a quantum
field theory in AdS space may be thought of as that of a conformal field
theory on its boundary\, whose correlators are represented by tree tensor
networks. TTNs also arise when computing correlators in MERA\, which can b

DESCRIPTION:Halil Cakir\, University of Heidelberg\n\nDynamics of the Tran
sverse Field Ising Chain after a Sudden Quench\n\nDue to experimental adva
nces in the preparation and control of \nultra-cold atomic gases\, there i
s a widespread interest in the behaviour \nof quantum systems out of equil
ibrium. A common way to probe quantum \nsystems for non-equilibrium phenom
ena is given by sudden quenches. I \nwill present results concerning the d
ynamics of the longitudinal spin \ncorrelation function after a sudden que
nch in the Transverse Field Ising \nChain. A distinguishing feature of thi
s model is that it exhibits a \nquantum critical point separating a ferrom
agnetic from a paramagnetic \nphase. Furthermore\, the system can be expre
ssed as a fermionic harmonic \noscillator\, which allows us to determine t
he longitudinal correlation \nfunction after a sudden quench exactly by us
ing Wick's theorem. In \nparticular\, I will concentrate on the behaviour
of the longitudinal \ncorrelation function for quenches from an initially
large external field \nto the vicinity of the quantum critical point withi
n the paramagnetic \nphase. We conjectured a formula for the asymptotic be
haviour in this \ncase and compared it to numerical calculations of the co
rrelator. Based \non this conjectured formula\, we found that the decay of
the correlation \nfunction is characterized by two correlation lengths an
d that the \ncorrelation function attains its stationary values already at
short \ndistances.\n\n\nContact Person: Simon Trebst

elements in spintronic devices. But when shrunk to nanometer dimensions a
ntiferromagnets gain in functionality. We use low-temperature scanning tun
neling microscopy to create small antiferromagnets of our own design atom
by atom. At this extreme scale of individual atoms we can begin to harness
quantum mechanical effects. \nIn this way we can build antiferromagnetic
nanostructures that show two stable magnetic states with no net magnetic m
oment or structures that have a unique ground state but feature rich magne
tic dynamics of their excited states. I will introduce how inter-atomic ex
change bias gives control over the spin ground state and excitation dynami

emerge as steady states under non-equilibrium dynamics. In this talk\, I
use a systematic approach to study nonequilibrium phases and phase transit

DESCRIPTION:Mateus Araujo\, University of Vienna\n\nA purification postula
te for quantum mechanics with no causal order\n\nA recent framework for st
udying causal structures introduced the notion of a\nprocess: a resource s
hared between some parties that is compatible with standard\nquantum mecha
nics in each party’s laboratory\, but that does not presuppose the\nexis
tence of a global causal order between them.\nThese processes can be used
to perform several tasks that are impossible in\nstandard quantum mechanic
s: they allow for the violation of causal inequalities\,\nand provide an a
dvantage for computational and communication complexity.\nNonetheless\, no
physical process is known that allows for the violation of a\ncausal ineq
uality. There is therefore considerable interest in determining which\npro
cesses are physical and which are just mathematical artefacts of the\nfram
ework. Here we make the first step in this direction\, by proposing a\npur
ification postulate: processes are physical only if they are purifiable. W

gate how the efficiency of E. coli chemotaxis depends on the external\nenv

cell is in a medium\nwhere the nutrient is diffusing and the form of nutr
ient profile is Gaussian\, we find that there exists an\noptimal width of
the profile for which the search time becomes minimum. In the case when th
e nutrient\ndiffusion and cell movement occurs over comparable time-scales
\, there exists an optimum value of the\nnutrient diffusivity for which th
e search time becomes minimum. The simulation results in a phenotype\nmode
l agree well with our analytical calculations in a related coarse-grained
model. In a single cell\nchemotaxis the internal biochemical pathway invol
ves noise due to the fluctuations present in the\nnumber of different mole
cules taking part in the reactions. This noise plays a very crucial role o

capable of emitting strings of entangled photons. In particular\, photonic
cluster state sources could enable measurement-based quantum computing an
d are therefore under intense investigation. While experiments are progres
sing\, the issue of benchmarking comes to the fore.\n The challenge is
to quantify the long-range entanglement of the photonic state using only t
he few-photon correlation measurements that are feasible given limited emi
ssion/detection efficiencies. We present a lower bound on localizable enta
nglement that requires nothing but simple three-qubit correlation measurem
ents. This method therefore enables direct demonstration of computationall
y powerful multi-photon entanglement with currently available experimental
capabilities.\n\nContact Person: David Gross

lized as combination of a point group operation and a non-primitive lattic

t it effects on topological phases just begin to be explored very recently
. It has been discovered that nonsymmorphic symmetry provides intrinsicall
y new topological phases in insulators and superconductors. For example\,
the new topological phases may be characterized by new Z2 and Z4 topologic
al indices\, hosting exotic Mobius twisted surface states. In addition\, n
onsymmorphic symmetry also provides new gapless structure in nodal superco

Gap in alpha-RuCl3\n\nQuantum spin liquids are a central theme in current
condensed matter physics as they host emergent topological order and frac
tionalized excitations. An important example are interacting Kitaev spins
on a honeycomb lattice which are theoretically predicted to exhibit topolo
gical and quantum spin liquids. Identifying signatures of Kitaev physics\,
however\, is extremely challenging as real materials\, such as the iridat
es (Na\,Li)2IrO3\, inevitably entail an isotropic Heisenberg and additiona
l spin-exchange interactions\, thereby stabilizing a magnetically ordered
state. Hexagonal Ru trichloride α-RuCl3 has been recently reported to be
near the Kitaev spin-liquid phase boundary. The layered honeycomb structur
e of α-RuCl3 contains layers weakly coupled by van der Waals interaction\
, i.e. it is a correlated 2d-material offering many possibilities for “m
aterials engineering”. We have characterized the electronic and magnetic
properties of α-RuCl3 by a broad spectrum of experimental techniques. Fr
om electron spectroscopy basic parameters determining the insulating state
of α-RuCl3 are extracted. Moreover\, strongly anisotropic magnetic prope
rties as measured from magnetization\, specific heat\, thermal conductivit
y\, and NMR measurements will be presented and discussed. Both\, the beha
vior of α-RuCl3 in the paramagnetic phase as well as the properties of th
e ordered state strongly differ from that found in conventional two-dimens
ional magnets. In particular\, we find a very unusual field-temperature ph
ase diagram with evidence for a novel quantum critical point.\n\nContact P

in real space from stable fractional charges at the edge of a quantum spin
Hall insulator\n\nThe chiral anomaly is based on a non-conserved chiral c
harge and can happen in Dirac fermion systems under the influence of exter
nal electromagnetic fields. In this case\, the spectral flow leads to a t
ransfer of right- to left-moving excitations or vice versa. The correspond
ing transfer of chiral particles happens in momentum space. We here descri
be an intriguing way to introduce the chiral anomaly into real space. Our
system consists of two quantum dots that are formed at the helical edges o
f a quantum spin Hall insulator by means of magnetic barriers. Such a setu
p gives rise to fractional charges which we show to be sharp quantum numbe
rs for large barrier strength.\nInterestingly\, it is possible to map the
system onto a quantum spin Hall ring in the presence of a flux pierced thr
ough the ring where the relative angle between the magnetization direction
s of the barriers takes the role of the flux. The chiral anomaly in this s
ystem is then directly related to the excess occupation of particles in th
e two quantum dots. This analogy allows us to predict an observable conseq
uence of the chiral anomaly in real space.\n\nContact Person: Alex Altland

the frustrated spin-$\\frac{1}{2}$ $J_1$-$J_2$-$J_3$ Heisenberg model on t
he square lattice with ferromagnetic $J_1$ and antiferromagnetic $J_2$ and
$J_3$ interactions. Using the pseudo-fermion functional renormalization g
roup technique\, we find an intermediate paramagnetic phase located betwee
n classically ordered ferromagnetic\, stripy antiferromagnetic\, and incom
mensurate spiral phases. We observe that quantum fluctuations lead to sign
ificant shifts of the spiral pitch angles compared to the classical limit.
By computing the response of the system with respect to various spin rota
tion and lattice symmetry-breaking perturbations\, we identify a complex i
nterplay between different nematic spin states in the paramagnetic phase.
While retaining time-reversal invariance\, these phases either break spin-
rotation symmetry\, lattice-rotation symmetry\, or a combination of both.
We therefore propose the $J_1$-$J_2$-$J_3$ Heisenberg model on the square
lattice as a paradigmatic example where different intimately connected typ
es of nematicities emerge in the same model.\n\nContact Person: Finn Lasse

DESCRIPTION:Hiroki Isobe\, MIT\n\nInterlayer pairing symmetry of composite
fermions in quantum Hall bilayers\n\nSince the discovery of quantum Hall
effect\, two-dimensional electron system under magnetic field has provided
lots of intriguing physics topics both experimentally and theoretically\,
including integer/fractional quantized Hall conductance\, anyon statistic
s\, and non-Abelian particles. Electron-electron interactions play crucia
l roles in such quantum Hall problems. Even richer phenomena take place f
or two parallel two-dimensional sheets. Bilayer systems\, or more general
ly multicomponent systems\, have additional degrees of freedom\, and they
allow interlayer paired states at even-denominator filling fraction in eac
h layer\, which exhibits the Fermi sea of composite fermions without inter
actions. I will discuss the interlayer paired state in the presence of th
e Coulomb interaction and its pairing symmetry\, and will make a comment o
n a possible topological order of the ground state.\n\nContact Person: Yoi

von historischen Beispielen und systematischen Analysen skizziert werden.
So ist z.B. zur Zeit Johannes Keplers die Synthese wissenschaftlicher und
literarischer Schreibweisen in einem Text noch denkbar: Kepler entwirft 1
609 in seinem Somnium eine fiktive Mondreise\, die den Kampf zwischen den
miteinander konfligierenden Weltbildern inszeniert und durch allegorische\
, optische\, narrative und wissenschaftliche Schreibverfahren der neuen as
tronomischen Auffassung zur Verbreitung verhilft. Mit Kepler als Vorbild r
eflektieren auch heute literarische Texte den Beitrag der Physik zur Kultu
r des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts\, so z.B. Thomas Lehrs Roman '42' und Raoul
Schrotts Epos 'Erste Erde'. Das Erlanger Zentrum für Literatur und Natur

atomic chains in the presence of spin orbit interaction or spatially peri

topological insulators\, and typically in the presence of superconductivi

nanowires and atomic magnetic chains and show some recent experimental pro

need of specialized setups and without requiring any standard “twisting
” interactions like Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya or dipole-dipole interactions.
This is possible by exploiting a dynamical instability arising by the int

strength. We propose specific experimental setups to observe the periodic

y via Iterative Hard Thresholding algorithm\n\nLow-rank tensor recovery i
s an interesting subject from both \ntheoretical and application point of
view. On one side\, it is a \nnatural extension of the sparse vector and l
ow-rank matrix recovery \nproblem. On the other side\, estimating a low-ra
nk tensor has \napplications in many different areas such as machine learn
ing\, video \ncompression\, and seismic data interpolation. In this talk\,
an \niterative approach to low rank tensor recovery is introduced. This \
napproach is a generalization of the iterative hard thresholding \nalgorit
hm for sparse vector and low-rank matrix recovery to tensor \nscenario (te
nsor IHT or TIHT algorithm). Here\, we consider the tensor \ntrain decompo
sition (or TT-decomposition)\, also called the matrix \nproduct states (or
MPS). The a!\n nalysis\nof the algorithm is based on a \nversion of the r
estricted isometry property (tensor RIP or TRIP). We \nshow that subgaussi
an measurement ensembles satisfy TRIP with high \nprobability under an alm
ost optimal condition on the number of \nmeasurements. Additionally\, we s
how that partial Fourier maps combined \nwith random sign flips of the ten
sor entries satisfy TRIP with high \nprobability. Under the assumption tha
t the linear operator satisfies \nTRIP and under an additional assumption
on the thresholding operator\, \nwe provide a linear convergence result fo
r the TIHT algorithm. Similar \nresults also hold for HOSVD (Tucker) and H
ierarchical Tucker \ndecomposition (HT-decomposition). Finally\, we illust
rate the \nperformance of iterative hard thresholding algorithm for tensor
\nrecovery via numerical experiments where we consider recovery from \nGa
ussian measurement ensembles and Fourier measurements for third \norder te
nsors.

ing in photonic networks. We will consider such phenomena\nusing semiclass

such approaches to an interacting many-body system is to combine\ninformat
ion of its two complementary classical limits\, namely a classical system
of particles\nand/or a classical field theory\, into a unified framework\,
providing a picture of many-body interference\nbased on coherent sums ove

progress in the semiclassical analysis of many-body\ninterference using a
prime example of integrable quantum field theory\, the Lieb-Liniger model
\, describing\ninteracting bosons on a ring. We show that\, in the limit o
f high excitations\, its spectrum can be\nunderstood by means of suitable
generalizations of the so-called Weyl expansion for the smooth part\, and
a\ntrace formula for the oscillatory part\, revealing a spectral shell str

large particle number the complementary classical limit of the Lieb-Linige

analysis as an integrable classical system\,\nnow near its ground state. T
his enables the description of a sequence of quantum phase transitions ari

of pseudo-Landau levels predicted theoretically and found experimentally .
These gauge fields can be used for "strain engineering"\, including tunab

t in the last few years. In these\nstates of matter\, low-energy excitatio
ns behave as chiral massless\nparticles\, i.e. Weyl fermions. Besides exhi
biting anomalous transport\neffects\, the most prominent feature of these
crystals are topologically\nprotected surface states\, the so-called Fermi
arcs. Their emergence can\nbe tied to an effective axial magnetic field a
rising at a surface due to\nlattice deformations and inducing a surface cu
rrent by the chiral\nmagnetic effect. Using a holographic model\, I comput
ed these currents in\nthe strong coupling limit. The results show that the
bulk-boundary\ncorrespondence in WSMs is in some sense independent of int
eractions\ndemonstrating the universality of anomaly-related effects. In t
he end\, I\nwill discuss the limits of this universality.\nSee also arXiv:

do-fermion\nfunctional-renormalization-group (PFFRG) technique. In order t

d to\nstabilize all types of non-collinear magnetic orders of the J_1-J_2\
nHeisenberg model (q=0\, √3x√3\, and cuboc orders) and shrink the exte

t of the\nmineral herbertsmithite which has been experimentally predicted
to host a\nquantum spin liquid at low temperatures. Our PFFRG data indicat

DESCRIPTION:Christine Muschik\, University of Innsbruck\n\nReal-time dynam
ics of lattice gauge theories with a few-qubit quantum computer\n\nGauge t
heories are fundamental to our understanding of interactions between the e
lementary constituents of matter as mediated by gauge bosons. However\, co
mputing the real-time dynamics in gauge theories is a notorious challenge
for classical computational methods. In the spirit of Feynman's vision of
a quantum simulator\, this has recently stimulated theoretical effort to d
evise schemes for simulating such theories on engineered quantum-mechanica
l devices\, with the difficulty that gauge invariance and the associated l
ocal conservation laws (Gauss laws) need to be implemented. Here we report
the first experimental demonstration of a digital quantum simulation of a
lattice gauge theory\, by realising 1+1-dimensional quantum electrodynami
cs (Schwinger model) on a few-qubit trapped-ion quantum computer. We are i
nterested in the real-time evolution of the Schwinger mechanism\, describi
ng the instability of the bare vacuum due to quantum fluctuations\, which
manifests itself in the spontaneous creation of electron-positron pairs. T
o make efficient use of our quantum resources\, we map the original proble
m to a spin model by eliminating the gauge fields in favour of exotic long
-range interactions\, which have a direct and efficient implementation on
an ion trap architecture. We explore the Schwinger mechanism of particle-a
ntiparticle generation by monitoring the mass production and the vacuum pe
rsistence amplitude. Moreover\, we track the real-time evolution of entang
lement in the system\, which illustrates how particle creation and entangl
ement generation are directly related. Our work represents a first step to
wards quantum simulating high-energy theories with atomic physics experime
nts\, the long-term vision being the extension to real-time quantum simula
tions of non-Abelian lattice gauge theories. \n\n[1] E. A. Martinez*\, C.

DESCRIPTION:Michael Kastoryano\, Niels Bohr International Academy\n\nNew t
ools from Quantum Information Theory for the analysis of Many body systems
\n\n In a celebrated recent result\, Fawzi and Renner [CMP 340 (2015)] sho
wed that for a given quantum state\, and a tripatition ABC of a quantum sy
stem\, the conditional mutual information I(A:C|B) is small if and only if
there exists a map which approximately recovers the erasure of subsystem
C\, without acting on system A. Such states are called Markov states\, and
the maps are called local recovery maps. \nI will consider applications o
f this important new result to the analysis of many-body systems. In parti
cular\, I will show that if the thermal (Gibbs) state of a local Hamiltoni
an is Markov\, and satisfies some physically reasonable assumption on the
long range correlations\, then (i) expectation values of local observables
can be evaluated efficiently\, and (ii) the Gibbs state can be sampled (p
repared) efficiently on a quantum computer. \nUsing similar methods\, I wi
ll argue that ground states of certain local gapped Hamiltonians can be pr
epared in sub-linear time (on a quantum computer) if and only if the topol
ogical entanglement entropy is zero. \nFurthermore\, a slight strengthenin
g of these methods provide checkable conditions for the parent Hamiltonian
of a PEPS to be gapped\, as long as the Li-Haldane type conjecture holds.
I'll finally comment on further applications of local recovery maps\, inc
luding approximate error correcting codes and toy models for the AdS/CFT c
orrespondence\, and argue that these tools from quantum information theory
will play an important role in analysis of many body systems. \n\nContact

through the continuous melting of non-coplanar magnetic "parent" states.\

DESCRIPTION:Hanno Schmiedt\, University of Cologne\n\nSymmetry and dynamic
s in floppy molecules: A new five-dimensional super-rotor model and its co
nsequences\n\nExtremely floppy molecules are indescribable by the common i
deas of molecular physics. Their ground state wave functions are highly de
localized and the concept of molecular structure breaks down. Recently\, w
e established a fundamentally new 'super-rotor' model\, which is based on
a five-dimensional rotational symmetry. The respective states are describe
d by the irreducible representations of SO(5) and the Hamiltonian is propo
rtional to the respective Casimir operator. The prototypical example of fl
oppy molecules is protonated methane\, which was measured only recently in
the Cologne lab. With our simple model\, we are - for the first time - ab
le to predict energy levels which actually compare very favourably to the
experimental values. In addition\, the exchange symmetry of the protons ca
n be\ndetermined by using an isomorphism of the permutation group to a sub
group of SO(5). In this talk\, we discuss the basic concepts of this new a
pproach and ask some of the most urgent questions for\nfurther development
s.\n\nContact Person: Alexander Altland

sitions that can be triggered externally by electronic excitations and add
ress the how we can excite particle modes of lattice excitation\, and expl
ore how these are related to the electronic and magnetic properties and th
e corresponding phase transitions. The goal is to understand how and how f
ast we can trigger electronic transitions and how they might couple to str
uctural motions of the atomic lattice. [1-3] These can be done using pump-
probe schemes\, with x-rays as a probe down to ultrafast time scales\, as
created by an x-ray free electron laser. \nThe presented examples will inc
lude the charge and orbital order phase transition in half doped manganite
s [1\,3] and multiferroic TbMnO3. I will also present very briefly newest
results on the octahedral rotation transitions in simple perovskite SrTiO3
and EuTiO3\, which shows opposite behaviour when triggering this phase tr
ansition. \n\n\nReferences\n[1] P. Beaud et al. Nature Materials 13\, 923

DESCRIPTION:Akos Kovacs\, Friedrich Schiller Universität\, Jena\n\nDivisi
on of labor and evolution of autonomy in bacterial biofilms\n\n\nBiofilms
are structurally complex bacterial communities\, where the cells are enclo
sed in an extracellular matrix that mediates the attachment of cells to ea
ch other or to surfaces. While the biofilm matrix benefits the population\
, i.e. protection\, attachment to a substratum or surface spreading\, its
production is costly for the individuals. Mutant strains of the Gram-posit
ive bacterium\, Bacillus subtilis lacking matrix production have a higher
fitness under well mixed planktonic conditions. Matrix producers have an a
dvantage when cultivated in spatially structured environment initiated at
low cell densities\, i.e. in colony biofilms [1]. Contrariwise\, biofilms
on an air- medium interface\, the so called pellicles are governed by diff
erent ecological processes. Colonization of the air-liquid interface requi
res aerotaxis driven motility [2]. Moreover\, non-producers are excluded f
rom the pellicles formed by wild-type cooperators\, however\, their abunda
nce could change over time after prophage awakening [3]. Here\, I will pre
sent the long term evolutionary dynamics of biofilms formed through geneti
c division of labor. Despite a short term success\, genetic division of la
bor in biofilm formation collapses and slows down the evolution of autonom
y of the winning partner. Differences in dependency levels and availabilit
y of public goods exchanged by the cooperating partners influence cooperat
ion collapse revealing a barrier against evolution of intraspecific cooper
ation in microbes.\n[1] van Gestel et al 2014 ISME Journal [2] Hölscher e

results in the recent past. Starting with a brief overview\, we discuss
the characteristic features of the Susceptible-Infected-Removed (SIR) mod
el considered on a network embedded in Euclidean space with random long r
ange interactions chosen following a certain prescription. \nNumerical si
mulations suggest a simple form of the cumulative density of infected agen
ts at time t\, \nR(t)\, depending on the network parameters and the infec
tion probability q.\nThe epidemic dynamics shows the effect of the phase t
ransition occurring in the network. \nThe data for the Ebola outbreak that
occurred in 2014-2016 in three countries of West Africa are analysed with
in a common framework using this \nmodel. The predicted form of R(t) is
seen to fit well with the data. We also show that in the Euclidean model\,
appropriate choices of the parameters reproduce the data for the three co
untries with considerable accuracy. These choices are correlated with popu
lation density\, control schemes and other factors. Comparing the real dat
a and the results from the model one can also estimate the size of the act

l nonequilibrium system\n\nMany-body localization (MBL) is the quantum phe

aracterized by the nonergodic behaviour of physical observables. It is int
ensively investigated theoretically within disordered many-body models and
experimentally in optical lattices of cold atoms. Within a one-dimensiona

an indicator for the MBL phase and are closely related to the dynamical sp
in conductivity and d.c. transport. \nAn analytical approach indicates th
at one dimension might still be singular with the subdiffusion in the ergo

ng global optimization to local percolation\n\nThe emergence of global str
uctures in networks is at the core of our increasingly connected world\, r
anging from international trade to the spreading of innovations in social
networks. Many of these networks are constructed by individual decisions o
ptimizing connectivity under various constraints\, for example people choo
sing their friends in geographically constrained social networks. Yet\, ho
w and under which conditions these local decisions create global structure
s is hardly understood.\n\nWe study a general optimization problem modelin
g the emergence of global interactions in networks in the presence of loca
l feedback and transaction costs over long distances. Related problems ari
se for economic decisions in trade networks\, for biological interactions
in the context of cooperation and in social networks for the adoption of i
nnovations. We map a wide range of these global optimization problems to a
local percolation model where connectivity increases when the transaction
costs in the network decrease. We explain how this transition is affected
by the network structure and the local feedback effects: While the transi
tion is discontinuous in compact networks and for strong enough feedback e
ffects\, the transition is slow in networks with a large diameter and smal
l feedback effects.\n\n\nContact Person: Dirk Witthaut

rature scanning tunneling microscopy\n\nSpin-polarized scanning tunneling
microscopy at low temperature (8 K) and in high magnetic fields (6 T) is a
powerful technique to investigate magnetic properties of individual nanos
cale objects ranging in size form single atoms to several thousand atoms.
I focus on the magnetization reversal and the spin-dependent electronic pr
operties of bilayer Co\, Fe-decorated Co and Fe islands on Cu(111). We fin
d a novel noncollinear\, helical magnetic order in the Fe islands\, which
is identified by a magnetic stripe contrast with a period of 1.28 nm. The
high spatial resolution of the scanning tunneling spectroscopy reveals th
e significance of structural and electronic relaxation for the magnetic an
isotropy and the spin-dependent transport properties of single islands. In
an outlook I present first results from our new STM\, which operates at 0
.3 K in a vector magnetic field\, on superconductivity of Pb monolayers an
d on the proximity effect.\n\nContact Person: T. Michely

uantum control\n\nThe control of quantum states is essential both for fund
amental investigations and for technological applications of quantum physi
cs. In quantum few-body systems\, decoherence arising from interaction wit
h the environment hinders the realization of desired processes. In quantum
many-body systems\, complexity of their dynamics further makes state prep
aration via external manipulation highly non-trivial. An effective strateg
y to counter these effects is offered by quantum optimal control theory\,
exploiting quantum coherence to dynamically reach a desired goal with high
accuracy even under limitations on resources such as time\, bandwidth\, a
nd precision. In this talk I will (i) introduce the quantum optimal contro
l method we developed to this aim\, the CRAB (Chopped Random Basis) algori
thm\, (ii) present experimental results obtained via its application to va
rious physical systems\, from quantum logical operations in solid-state qu
antum optics to quantum criticality in ultra-cold atoms\, (iii) use these
examples to illustrate the quantum speed limit\, i.e. the maximum speed ac
hievable for a given quantum transformation\, and (iv) propose a way to ch
aracterise the latter in an information-theoretical fashion by the bandwid

DESCRIPTION:Edgar Roldan\, MPI-PKS Dresden\n\nMartingale theory for nonequ
ilibrium thermodynamics\n\nThe laws of thermodynamics can be extended to m
esoscopic systems for which energy changes are on the order of the thermal
energy are relevant. Therefore\, thermodynamic observables associated wit
h mesoscopic degrees of freedom are stochastic. A key example of such ther
modynamic observable is the stochastic entropy production in nonequilibriu
m processes. Little is known beyond fluctuation theorems about universal s
tatistics of entropy-production fluctuations. Using Martingale theory we h
ave discovered novel universal statistics of stochastic entropy production
in nonequilibrium steady states such as: (i) The distribution of the nega
tive record (which we call infimum) of entropy production (ii) the passage
probabilities of entropy production\; (iii) the stopping-time fluctuation
s of entropy production. Our work is based on the finding that in a nonequ
ilibrium steady state\, the exponential of minus the entropy production is
a martingale process. A martingale is a process representing a fair game
with no net gain or loss and its connection to thermodynamics has not been
fully explored yet. Notably\, our results have interesting implications f
or stochastic processes that can be discussed in colloidal systems and act
ive molecular processes. For example\, we make predictions for the distrib
ution of the maximum backtrack depth of RNA polymerases during transcripti
on.\n\nContact Person: Joachim Krug

DESCRIPTION:Christoph Berke\, TU Dresden\n\nWeyl semimetal on the pyrochlo
re lattice\n\nThe study of topological phases of matter is among the most
active research fields in modern solid state physics. Over the last couple
of years\, there has been growing interest in the topological classificat
ion of gapless systems. One example of a gapless system\, with defining to
pological properties\, is the Weyl semimetal (TWS). In Weyl semimetals\, c
onduction and valence bands touch at isolated points in the Brillouin zone
. These Weyl points are topologically pro- tected and can only disappear i
f they annihilate pairwise. The Weyl semimetal hosts non-trivial surface s
tates\, which take the form of open Fermi arcs\, connect- ing the projecti
ons of two Weyl points to the Brillouin zone of the surface. Due to the ro
bustness of this phase\, Weyl semimetals are of interest for applications
in quantum computers or electronic devices. In this work\, we consider a m
odel for the iridium electrons in pyrochlore iridates. For this material c
lass\, a Weyl- semimetal phase has been predicted. We calculate the phase
diagram and find a rich variety of phases\, the TWS\, a strong topological
insulator\, a type-II Weyl semimetal and various kinds of magnetic order.
For the TWS\, we study the un- conventional surface states for various ge
ometries. For lower electron densities\, we find a plethora of new magneti
c configurations. We then turn our attention towards possible instabilitie
s in Weyl semimetals. We study the stability of the Weyl semimetal phase a
gainst the formation of charge density waves. In the back- folded Brilloui
n zone\, Weyl points that were originally far apart can be mapped close to
each other and annihilate if that reduces the free energy. However we did
not find a charge density wave. We therefore study the behavior of Weyl p
oints under the influence of a charge density wave. We find mechanisms\, t
hat could possibly avoid the formation of such a charge configuration. For
example\, one-dimensional Fermi lines emerge.\n\nContact Person: Simon Tr

DESCRIPTION:Chris Hooley\, University of St. Andrews\n\nFeynman path integ
rals over matrix product states: insights into unconventional phase transi
tions\n\nAn interesting topic in the theory of quantum phase transitions i
s that of the transition between a classically ordered state\, such as a N
éel state\, and a quantum ordered state\, such as a valence bond crystal.
On the classically ordered side of the transition\, we have a well devel
oped understanding based on the spontaneous breaking of a continuous symme
try and the occurrence of associated Goldstone modes (spin waves). On the
quantum ordered side\, things are rather less clear. Even the descriptio
n of the quantum ordered state itself is not straightforward\, since it is
not a saddle-point of the usual spin-coherent-state path integral.\n \nIn
this talk\, I shall present an approach designed to address this problem
by constructing the path integral over matrix product states rather than s
pin coherent states. This allows both classically ordered states (which a
re matrix product states of bond dimension 1) and quantum ordered states (
which are matrix product states of higher bond dimension) to be captured o
n an equal footing. I shall use this approach to show that\, for at least
one example of such a transition\, a Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson-type descript
ion can be given\, where the ‘order parameter’ is a field representing
the nearest-neighbour entanglement of the spins.\n \nThe talk is designed
to be entirely self-contained: in particular\, no prior knowledge of matr
ix product states or quantum ordered phases is assumed. The work about wh
ich I shall speak was undertaken in collaboration with Andrew Green (Unive
rsity College London)\, Jonathan Keeling (St Andrews)\, and Steve Simon (O
xford)\, under the auspices of the TOPNES programme. Most of the details
can be found at https://arxiv.org/abs/1607.01778.

DESCRIPTION:Masahito Hayashi\, Nagoya University\n\nVerification of Measur
ement-Based Quantum Computation\n\nQuantum computation offers a novel way
of processing information and promises solution\nof some classically intra
ctable problems. However\, if the component of the quantum computor has\ns
ome errors\, it does not output a correct computation outcome. Since the q
uantum computor is composed\nof several components\, the unexpected correl
ation causes unexpected error that cannot be corrected\nby error correctio
n. To resolve this problem\, we need to verify the quantum computor. If a
problem is\nin NP\, we can verify the correctness of a solution\, but a pr
oblem that we want to solve with a quantum\ncomputer is not necessarily in
NP. We need to verify quantum computer. Usually a quantum computer is\nco
mposed of a combination of so many quantum circuits. It is not easy to pre
dict the outcome of the\ncombination of so many quantum circuits. That is\
, since we do not know the computation outcome\,\nwe cannot verify the com
putation outcome by itself. To resolve this problem\, we employ\nmeasureme
nt-based quantum computation (MBQC). MBQC is composed of graph state and l
ocal measurements\,\nwhich are known to us. In particular\, the computatio
n resorce is given as the quantum correlation of\nthe graph state\, which
is in a known form. Hence\, we can verify these components by using the me
thod\nof statistical hypothesis testing. In this talk\, we consider the fo
llowing three settings.\n\n(1) We perfectly trust our local measurement. S
o\, we need to verify only the graph state.\n(2) We trust local measuremen
t\, but it is noisy. The noise can be converted to noise of graph state.\n
So\, we need to verify only the noisy graph state. This protocol works wit
h noisy graph state.\n(3) We do not trust measurement as well as graph sta
te. However\, it accept only the case when\nthe measurement and the graph
state are noiseless.\n\nSetting (3) has weakest assumption\, but it works
with ideal case. Setting (2) has stronger\nassumption\, but it works with
realistic case. Further\, our verification scheme can be applied to\nthe b
lind quantum computation. This talk is based on joint works with T. Morim

DESCRIPTION:Jan Carl Budich\, University of Innsbruck\n\nTopological Quant
um Matter far from Equilibrium\n\nTopological states of quantum matter suc
h as topological insulators and superconductors have been an active field
of research in physics for many years. The recent experimental progress on
their realization with ultracold atomic gases raises natural questions ab
out the notion of topological quantum matter far from thermal equilibrium.
In this talk\, we present our theoretical findings in this context.\n\nWe
first discuss the non-equilibrium Hall response of a system initialized i
n a topologically trivial state before its Hamiltonian is ramped into a Ch
ern insulator phase\, comparing the coherent dynamics with effects of deph
asing. In the second part of the talk\, we discuss non-equilibrium proper
ties of driven systems. In particular\, we show how a perfect spin momentu
m locking\, so far only known from edge states of two-dimensional topologi
cal insulators can emerge in the stroboscopic dynamics of one-dimensional
Floquet lattice systems. Finally\, we discuss dynamically defined topologi
cal quantum numbers that have no non-equilibrium counterpart\, and report
on their very recent experimental observation.\n\nContact Person: Sebastia

DESCRIPTION:Christian Hess\, IFW Dresden\n\nResonantly enhanced quasiparti
cle interference and superconductivity in LiFeAs: evidence for q~0 bosonic
modes\n\nThe identification of the electron-boson interaction is believed
to be the key for rationalizing the Cooper pairing mechanism in a superco
nductor. In strong- coupling conventional superconductors\, the fingerprin
ts of the electronic band renormalization due to the electron-boson intera
ction are found in the fine structure of tunneling spectra\, where the ide
ntification of this fine structure with the phononic density of states rep
resents one of the hallmarks of modern condensed matters physics. In many
unconventional superconductors\, the unknown nature of the pairing boson\,
absence of momentum resolution\, as well as possible inelastic tunneling
effects render the interpretation of the tunneling spectra often cumbersom
e and ambiguous. Here we exploit a so far unnoticed boson-assisted resonan
t enhancement of the impurity scattering potential and thus the quasiparti
cle interference (QPI) amplitude in order to identify the nature of a poss
ible pairing boson in the unconventional superconductor LiFeAs. In high-re
solution Fourier transform scanning tunneling spectroscopy (FT-STS) measur
ements we indeed observe a resonance-like enhancement of the QPI amplitude
in both the normal and the superconducting state\, which implies an impor
tant coupling of electronic states to corresponding bosonic states at q~0
and energy at about 8meV. We show that these bosonic states seen in the QP
I are in perfect agreement with a strong inelastic contribution on the tun
neling dI/dU spectra recorded away from impurities which renders the obser
ved small-q modes promising candidates for providing the pairing interacti
on in LiFeAs.\n\nContact Person: P. van Loosdrecht

ülich\n\nTopological electric circuits\n\nThe prospect of intrinsically p
rotected quantum computing is driving the research on topological quantum
systems. Materials with a topologically nontrivial band structure are howe
ver difficult to manufacture experimentally. We recently showed that topol
ogical materials can be engineered by quite simple means\, when considerin
g a different space: superconducting junctions have the phase difference a
nd the number of transported charges across the junction as conjugate vari
ables. In the main part of the talk\, I will present the example of a four
-terminal junction whose energy spectrum exhibits Weyl singularities in th
e space of three independent phases\, which thus play the role of\nquasimo
menta. The nonzero Chern number can be directly probed through a transport
measurement\, namely\, through a quantised transconductance. In the final
part of the talk\, I will provide an outlook on future directions. For on
e\, electric circuits may be used to study topological phase transitions s
pecific to open systems out of equilibrium\, and secondly\, they may exhib
it a so far unexplored connection between topology and quantum thermodynam

\, modelling and simulation of the traffic kinematics of parades\, using t
he Rose Monday parade in Cologne as the example\n\nGPS data from participa
ting groups in the Cologne Rose Monday parade are analyzed. The preparatio
n of the measured data requires a correction of the data by a specially ad
apted algorithm for the map-matching method. A higher average velocity is
observed for the last participant\, the carnival prince\, than for the hea
d of the parade. This prince paradox can be explained by the the constant
moving vehicle driving ahead of the parade leaving the train path. In addi
tion\, the inﬂuence of the route on the traﬃc kinematics of the parade
is examined. Some areas can be determined in which the parade shows veloc
ities below or above the average. Based on the results of the data analysi
s\, for the ﬁrst time a model can be established for parading groups as
a modiﬁed Nagel-Schreckenberg model. The characteristics observed in the
data analysis can be reproduced by this model in simulations. Furthermore
\, the train group model is expanded in a second simulation in order to ad
just the average velocity of the prince.\n\nContact Person: Andreas Schads

e model has been extended to various tricoordinate lattices without losing
the exact solubility. We analyze two different anisotropic limits of the
Kitaev model on a three-dimensional lattice comprising nine-site elementar

that respect the local and global constraints on the Ising variables repr
esenting Z2 fluxes\, we show that there is a first-order phase transition
at a finite temperature in each case\, but in a different manner.\n\nConta

display exponential signal-to-noise issues of a very similar nature as th

ent of the interaction strength in helical Luttinger Liquids\n\nIn one-dim
ensional Luttinger liquids the interaction strength is determined by the L
uttinger Parameter K. It proves proves difficult to be measured\, as it is
usually hidden in power-law dependencies on temperature or bias. In this
talk I will propose a setup\, which allows a dynamical measurement of this
parameter.\n\nIn this talk we will\, based on an equation of motion descr
iption of Luttinger Liquids\, discuss a setup with a capacitive gate\, whi
ch allows to probe the interactions directly. In this setup\, an expressio
n for the frequency dependence of the conductivity can be obtained\, from
which we can extract K directly and from a low frequency expansion. Furthe
rmore the influence of the precise form of the change in interactions at t
he contacts is examined using the formalism. As a perfectly suited system
to test the predictions\, we will shortly discuss helical edge states of t
opological insulators.\n\n\nContact Person: Simon Trebst

DESCRIPTION: Taner Esat\, Peter-Gruenberg-Institut Juelich\n\nA chemically
driven quantum phase transition in a two-molecule Kondo system\n\nMagneti
sm of molecules is in the focus of intense research\, because it could lea
d to new spin-based electronic devices. In this context\, two molecules ad
sorbed on a metal surface and carrying magnetic moments constitute an impo
rtant model system which helps to understand the fundamental properties of
molecular magnetism – in particular the interaction between their magne
tic moments. Typically the interaction of spins on a metal surface is domi
nated and tuned by the Ruderman-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida (RKKY) interaction
– an indirect exchange interaction mediated by the conduction electrons
of the metal.\nHere we show that the non-magnetic\, chemical interaction b
etween the molecules can become the decisive effect if the spin-moment-car
rying molecular orbitals extend in space and therefore lead to the formati
on of bonding and antibonding orbitals due to wave function overlap. We de
monstrate that this splitting has a crucial influence on the magnetic prop
erties exemplified by two neighbouring metal-molecule (Au-PTCDA) complexes
\, i.e. dimers\, on the Au(111) surface. Interestingly\, in this particula
r case\, competition between the binding energy gain\, due to the chemical
interaction between the moment-carrying orbitals\, and the gain of additi
onal hybridization energy\, due to the strong entanglement between the loc
al moment and the conduction band of the substrate\, is the driving force
of a quantum phase transition (QPT) in the dimer. Small changes in the wav
e function overlap\, involving slightly different dimer configurations\, d
rive the system through a quantum critical point (QCP) from a partially Ko
ndo-screened triplet to a singlet ground state\, with one dimer configurat
ion being located extremely close to a quantum critical point.\n\n\nContac

eutral excitations in interacting 2d systems\n\nIn the first part of the t
alk\, I will propose a transport experiment of \nexcitons in 2d transition
-metal dichalcogenides. Due to their \ninteractions with unbound electrons
in the Fermi sea\, excitons are \ndressed by a cloud of particle-hole exc
itations forming Fermi polarons. \nAn in-plane electric field cannot direc
tly accelerate neutral excitons\, \nhowever\, due to the polaronic dressin
g\, the unbound electrons will drag \nthe excitons along. This phenomenon
is similar to Coulomb drag in \nbilayer semiconductors. We determine the d
rag conductivity for a low \ndensity of excitons using simple arguments as
well as a diagrammatic \ncalculation based on a self-consistent T matrix
approximation. Due to \nthe strong nonperturbative coupling\, the exciton
drag mobility is \nexpected to be of the same order as the electron mobili
ty even at zero \ntemperature.\nTime permitting\, I will discuss a novel p
robe of quantum Hall \nferromagnetism in graphene based on thermal transpo
rt in the second part \nof the talk. Strong interactions lift the high deg
eneracy of the \nzero-energy Landau level in graphene mono- and bilayers\,
giving rise to \na rich phase diagram of competing spin and valley order.
Here we show \nthat thermal transport at low temperatures can give compel
ling evidence \nfor spontaneous symmetry breaking and exhibits many other
signatures \ndistinguishing the various phases.

- Rolf Landauer's 1961 prediction that information erasure requires at le

models of fracton topological orders\n\nFracton phases are gapped quantum
phases in three dimensions that go beyond the standard paradigm of topolo
gical order\; they have fractionalized excitations that are immobile or on
ly mobile along lower-dimensional subsystems\, such as lines or planes. Wh
ile there are several exactly solvable models of such fracton phases\, the
se models are far from realistic because they involve interactions between
many spins at the same time. By generalizing the fermionic parton constru
ction\, a standard phenomenological description of fractionalization in qu
antum phases\, we provide simple variational states capturing fracton phas
es. Moreover\, by showing that each variational state is the asymptotic st
rong-coupling ground state of a corresponding coupled-spin-chain model\, w
e demonstrate that a large class of fracton phases can be realized in more
realistic models involving only two-spin interactions.\n\nContact Person:

spectrum is different between weak and strong field regimes\,\nwhich orig

Two-Dimensional Dipolar Excitons\n\nState-of-the-art nano-fabrication proc

close to atomic precision. Structures are thus designed to separate\nspat
ially oppositely charged electrons and holes\, notably bilayer heterostruc
tures. When\nelectrons and hole are separated in such adjacent layers they
experience a strong\nCoulomb attraction pairing them into spatially indir
ect excitons\, i.e. boson-like particles\,\nwhich exhibit a giant electric
dipole of about 500 Debye. Excitons then experience a\nrepulsive dipolar
potential stabilizing cold gases against collapse while providing access t
o\na rich variety of collective quantum phases\, possibly ranging from sup
erfluidity to\nsupersolidity [1].\n\nHere\, first signatures for the super
fluid crossover of such dipolar excitons are reported [2].\nWhen confined
in a microscopic trap we show that they realize a four-component\nsuperflu
id at sub-Kelvin temperatures\, distributed between two optically active a

art\, we study in-situ the\nprofiles of the exciton density and the phase
coherence in the trap. We thus reveal\nquantum spatial coherence\, in a su

s. The framework is applied to explore an expanding light cone geometry in
the particular case of the Schwinger model for quantum electrodynamics in
1+1 space-time dimensions. We observe that the entanglement entropy becom
es extensive in rapidity at early times and that the corresponding local r
educed density matrix is a thermal density matrix for excitations around a
coherent field with a time dependent temperature. Since the Schwinger mod
el successfully describes many features of multiparticle production in ele
ctron-positron collisions\, our results provide an attractive explanation
in this framework for the apparent thermal nature of multiparticle product
ion even in the absence of significant final state scattering.\n\n\nContac

DESCRIPTION:Lukas Sieberer\, University of Innsbruck\n\nDesigning quantum
paths in adiabatic quantum computing\n\nThe computational superiority of a
computer that operates according to the laws\nof quantum mechanics relies
crucially on quantum parallelism: different sets of\ndata stored as a sup
erposition of quantum states can be processed in\nparallel. To play out th
is advantage\, however\, one has to be able to prepare\nsuch superposition
s in the first place --- using only a minimum of computational\nresources.
We present a framework to efficiently prepare superpositions of\nmany-bod
y spin configurations with programmable squared amplitudes. The spin\nconf
igurations are encoded in the degenerate ground states of the lattice-gaug
e\nrepresentation of an all-to-all connected Ising spin glass. The ground
state\nmanifold is invariant under variations of the gauge degrees of free
dom\, which\ntake the form of four-body parity constraints. Our framework
makes use of these\ndegrees of freedom by individually tuning them to dyna
mically prepare\nprogrammable superpositions. The dynamics combines an adi
abatic protocol with\ncontrolled diabatic transitions.\n\nContact Person:

DESCRIPTION:Istvan Kezsmarki\, Uni Augsburg\n\nUnidirectional light propag
ation in multiferroics and multi-antiferroics\n\nMultiferroics permit the
magnetic control of the electric polarization and the electric control of
the magnetization. These static magnetoelectric (ME) effects are of enormo
us interest: The ability to read and write a magnetic state current-free b
y an electric voltage would provide a huge technological advantage. Dynami
c or optical ME effects are equally interesting\, because they give rise t
o unidirectional light propagation as recently observed in several multife
rroic compounds [1].\n\nIn conventional media light propagation is recipro
cal\, that is counter-propagating beams experience the same refractive ind
ex. However\, reciprocity can be violated in multiferroic materials\, wher
e the refractive index depends not only on the polarization of light but a
lso on the +- k direction of the propagation [1]. Such unidirectional tran
smission is the consequence of the dynamic magnetoelectric effect emerging
in materials with simultaneously broken time reversal and spatial inversi
on symmetries. This phenomenon\, exclusively observed in multiferroic and
magnetoelectric materials [2-5]\, may allow the development of optical dio
des transmitting unpolarized light in one\, but not in the opposite\, dire
ction [5]. Recently\, the emergence such unidirectional light propagation\
, governed the dynamic magnetoelectric effect\, has also been demonstrated
in multi-antiferroics [6]\, i.e. in materials with coexisting purely anti
ferroelectric and antiferromagnetic orders.\n\n\nReferences\n\n[1] D. Szal

proposed as unprecedented quantum states of matter. In two spatial dimensi

ature zero-dimensional topological corner midgap states. These states are
protected by the bulk gap\, reflection symmetries\, and a spectral symmetr
y\, while their edges are gapped. Although such novel topological phases a

DESCRIPTION:Martin Greiner\, Aarhus University\n\nThe benefit of cooperati
on in a simplified highly renewable European electricity infrastructure\n\
nWe consider a simplified model of a future European electricity network w
ith a high share of renewable generation. In a cost optimal design of such
a system\, most of the renewable generation capacity is placed at locatio
ns with favorable weather conditions\, that is for instance onshore wind i
n countries bordering the North Sea and solar PV in South European countri
es. Countries with less favorable renewable generation conditions benefit
from this capacity by importing the respective electricity as power flows
through the transmission grid. Using flow tracing techniques\, which are r
elated to directed diffusion processes on networks\, we disentangle the em
erging pattern of imports and exports and assign shares of the distributed
generation capacity in the European system to the countries which actuall
y make use of them. This procedures yields nodal levelized costs\, which i
ncorporate both internal and external generation as well as transmission c
osts associated with the electricity consumption in a country. Compared to
a scenario without transmission\, these nodal levelized costs are reduced
by about 15% and represent the benefit of cooperation.\n\nContact Person:

DESCRIPTION:Felix Gunkel\, FZ Juelich\n\nThermodynamic processes and defec
t concentration profiles at engineered complex oxide interfaces and surfac
es \n\nThe properties of thin films and heterostructures of complex and st
rongly correlated oxides are one of the most fascinating and demanding top
ics in today´s solid state physics research. Oxide heterostructures give
rise to novel and unexpected physical phenomena such as metallicity in nom
inally non-metallic materials\, magnetism in nominally non-magnetic materi
als\, ferroelectricity in nominally non-ferroelectric materials\, or so fa
r unobserved topological effects. Many of these phenomena are affected or
even more driven by the nanoscale defect structure established during mate
rial synthesis and processing\, ultimately limited by the thermodynamics o
f the system. Tuning the thermodynamic processes by engineering dedicated
heterostructures may be used to tailor their defect structure in a desire
d way\, hence\, to deplete or accumulate defects at interfaces\, to spatia
lly separate electronic and ionic charge carriers\, or to confine defects
to dedicated regions.\nIn this talk\, I discuss the low-dimensional electr
on transport observed along complex oxide heterointerfaces\, such as the o
ne in LaAlO3/SrTiO3 heterostructures. While the formation of these 2-dimen
sional electron gases is attributed to electronic charge transfer triggere
d by a built-in electric field\, the ionic defect structure at these inter
faces is still being discussed controversially. I address the thermodynami
c processes associated with built-in electric fields and derive ionic defe
ct concentration profiles established at polar/non-polar oxide interfaces.
[1] The specific ionic-electronic defect structure stabilized within such
interfacial space charge layers strongly depends on ambient oxygen partia
l pressure applied during sample fabrication and on the strength of the bu
ilt-in electric field. \nAs will be discussed\, the low-temperature behavi
or of these novel electron system is unambiguously correlated to the adjac
ent ionic structure typically set at high temperature\, making thermodynam
ic considerations indispensable in order to understand novel phenomena occ
urring at cryostatic temperatures. Therefore\, a comprehensive study of lo
w temperature physics on the one hand and high temperature thermodynamics
on the other hand is essential for a unified understanding of the manifold
(and sometimes contradictory) phenomena observed in these low-dimensional
electron systems. Here\, we explicitly compare the thermodynamic ground s
tates obtained for various oxide heterostructure systems [2] and discuss r
esulting implications for important measures characterizing the electron g
as\, such as electron mobility [3] as well as its magnetic signature [4]\,
both controllable by thermodynamic means. The thermodynamic model obtaine
d for oxide heterointerfaces is furthermore linked to kinetic space charge
formation occurring at complex oxide surfaces [5\, 6]. \n[1] F. Gunkel et

in spin-orbit coupled superconductors\n\nA revolutionary new direction in
the field of superconductivity emerged recently with the synthesis of sup
erconductors with strong inherent spin-orbit coupling of electrons\, such
as the half-Heusler compounds YPtBi or LuPdBi. Due to band inversion\, the
low-energy degrees of freedom are electrons at a three-dimensional quadra
tic band touching point with an effective spin 3/2\, which allows for Coop
er pairs with spins ranging from 0 to 3. I will illuminate some of the unc
onventional superconducting properties that arise from this band structure
and attractive short-range interaction: (i) At strong coupling\, the syst
em features an s-wave superconducting quantum critical point with non-Ferm
i liquid scaling of fermions and several other unusual scaling properties.
(ii) The system may further undergo a transition into a phase with comple
x tensor order\, which is a superconducting state captured by a complex-va
lued matrix order parameter describing Cooper pairs having spin 2. Here th
e interplay of both tensorial and complex nature results in a rich and int
riguing phenomenology. I will discuss the mean-field phase structure as a
function of doping and temperature\, and relate our finding to experiments
in YPtBi. Further\, the critical properties of this new paradigm for supe
rconductivity will be addressed. \n\nContact Person: Sebastian Diehl

– by immersing the metal in a magnetic field and measuring the period o
f field-induced oscillations of the magnetization/resistivity. I will show
how to extract information about the quantum-mechanical wavefunction of t
he Fermi surface – from measuring the phase offset of these same oscilla

guishing feature of not conserving the number of fermions. Moreover\, the
accepted definition of "Majorana fermion" naturally belongs to this scenar
io. Is it possible to discuss Majorana fermions in "canonical" particle-co
nserving settings?\n\nIn this seminar I will present several exact and num
erical results on Majorana fermions in particle-conserving scenarios. I wi
ll start from the discussion of a model for bosons and fermions where\, in
a proper limit\, the physics of the celebrated Kitaev's chain appears. I
will continue by presenting exact results on Majorana fermions in ladder m
odels where the two legs of the system can only exchange pair of particles
. Finally\, I will comment on the possibility of making experiments with M
ajorana fermions in particle-conserving settings using cold atoms.\n\n\nCo

mpossibility statements: two noncommuting observables cannot in general bo
th be sharply defined (for\nthe same state)\, nor can they be measured joi
ntly. The pioneers of quantum mechanics were acutely aware and puzzled by
this fact\, and it motivated Heisenberg to seek a mitigation\, which he fo
rmulated in his seminal paper of 1927. He provided intuitive arguments to
show that the values of\, say\, the position and momentum of a particle ca
n at least be unsharply defined\, and they can be measured together provid
ed some approximation errors are allowed. Only now\, nine decades later\,
a working theory of approximate joint measurements is taking shape\, leadi
ng to rigorous and experimentally testable formulations of associated erro
r tradeoff relations. Here we briefly review this new development\, explai
ning the concepts and steps taken in the construction of optimal joint app
roximations of pairs of incompatible observables. As a case study\, we ded
uce measurement uncertainty relations for qubit observables using two dist

DESCRIPTION:Markus Mueller\n\nCould the physical world be emergent instead
of fundamental\, and why should we ask?\n\nIn physics\, there is the prev
ailing intuition that we are part of a unique external world\, and that th
e goal of physics is to understand and describe this world. This assumptio
n of the fundamentality of objective reality is often seen as a major prer
equisite of any kind of scientific reasoning\, delineating science from ps
eudoscience\, and explaining why successful empirical science is possible
in the first place. However\, here I argue that we should consider relaxin
g this assumption in a specific way in some contexts. Namely\, there is a
collection of open questions in and around physics that can arguably be ad
dressed in a substantially more consistent and rigorous way if we consider
the possibility that the first-person perspective is ultimately more fund
amental than our usual notion of external world. These are questions like:
which probabilities should an observer assign to future experiences if sh
e is told that she will be simulated on a computer? How should we think of
cosmology’s Boltzmann brain problem or assign probabilities to properti
es of ‘possible worlds’? What can we learn from the fact that measurem
ents in quantum theory seem to do more than just reveal preexisting proper
ties? Why are there simple computable laws of physics in the first place?
In the talk\, I sketch a mathematically rigorous approach along these line
s\, suggesting a simple and unified framework (rooted in algorithmic infor
mation theory) to address questions like those above. It is not meant as a
‘theory of everything’ (in fact\, it predicts its own limitations)\,
but it shows how a notion of objective external world\, looking very much
like our own\, can provably emerge from a starting point in which (only) t
he first-person perspective is primary.\n\nBased on arXiv:1712.01826 (full

DESCRIPTION:Enej Ilievski\, University of Amsterdam\n\nHydrodynamic equati
on for thermodynamic classical and quantum soliton gases\n\nExactly solvab
le nonlinear wave equations -- colloquially known as the soliton systems -
- are widely regarded as one of the greatest achievements of mathematical
physics. But somehow\, aside of several mathematical frameworks and other
formal aspects\, not a lot seems to be known about statistical properties
of classical integrable field theories and\, in particular\, classical tra
nsport properties at finite temperature. In this talk\, we present a kinet
ic equation to deal with dense soliton gases\, expressed in terms of a lin
ear integral dressing equation for the soliton spectral function which acc
ounts for renormalization of the soliton velocities due to the interaction
s with a soliton many-body state. This is accomplished in the framework of
the algebro-geometric integration technique which permits to classify all
quasi-periodic solutions of an integrable equation of motion in terms of
the moduli of finite-genus Riemann surfaces. By identifying soliton excita
tions\, applying Born-Sommerfeld quantization for soliton orbits\, extract
ing the two-body S-matrix\, and finally taking the thermodynamic finite-de
nsity\, the free energy functional is expressed as the saddle point of the
action-space path-integral. Our hydrodynamic equations can understood as
the thermodynamic analogue of the celebrated Whitham's modulation equation
s. The equations are universal\, and even apply to the quantum theories of
solitons. If time permits\, we show how to obtain a closed compact formul
a for the Drude weight in the quantum Heisenberg spin chain\, and discuss
peculiarities related to it.\n\nContact Person: Zala Lenarcic

n.\nI will start with a summary of the charge carrier relaxation after the
photo-excitation in Mott insulators described within the dynamical mean f

self-trapping of the system in the negative temperature state by a proper
manipulation of the screening environment\, which leads to the enhanced s
ubgap response in the charge susceptibility. This population inversion lea
ds to the low-energy anti-screening and I will comment on its experimental
relevance. In the second part I will shed light on the role of spin fluct

of DMFT[3]. I will exemplify how optical pump probe techniques can be use

ics\n\nIn recent years\, considerable experimental efforts have been devot
ed to dynamically generate complex states and monitor their evolution. Des
pite remarkable advances\, the theoretical principles behind the non-equil
ibrium dynamics of strongly correlated quantum matter are still far from b
eing fully understood. In particular\, very few studies have sought to cla
rify the influence of environmental couplings on the propagation of correl
ations. We attempt here to fill this gap. Considering first an interaction
quench in the Bose-Hubbard model under the effect of dephasing\, we obser
ve that dissipation effectively speeds up the propagation of single-partic
le correlations while reducing their coherence. In contrast\, for two-poin
t density correlations\, the initial ballistic propagation regime gives wa
y to diffusion at intermediate times. In a second time\, considering the X
XZ spin-1/2 model in contact with a similar environment\, we find this sys
tem to display aging. A dynamical phenomenon characterized by a breakdown
of time-translation invariance\, a slow non-exponential relaxation of two-

Open Quantum Systems\n\nRecent developments in diverse areas - ranging fr

antum optics\, many-body physics and statistical mechanics. These "driven
open quantum systems" share in common that coherent and driven-dissipative
dynamics occur on an equal footing\, creating genuine non-equilibrium sce
narios without immediate counterpart in equilibrium condensed matter physi
cs. A case in point are so-called exciton-polaritons in two spatial dimens
ions. We briefly explain the physical basis\, their description\, and how
to detect the violation of thermal equilibrium conditions in the formalism
. We then show that a paradigmatic hallmark of low-temperature equilibrium
systems -- the presence of quasi-long range order\, i.e. the algebraic de
cay of spatial correlation functions -- must be absent due to non-equilibr

DESCRIPTION:Jairo Sinova\, Mainz University\n\nTopological Antiferromagnet
ic Spin-orbitronics: A Dormant Giant Awakens\n\nAntiferromagnets and ferro
magnets represent two fundamental forms of magnetism with antiferromagnets
being the more abundant of the two. However\, it has been notoriously dif
ficult to manipulate and detect antiferromagnetic order by any practical m
eans due to the compensated magnetic moment. This has left antiferromagnet
s over their hundred-year history poorly explored\, in striking contrast t
o the thousands of years of fascination and utility of ferromagnets. This
has changed with the proposal and subsequent discovery of a new relativist
ic spin-torque phenomenon\, the Neél spin-orbit torque\, that allow us to
efficiently control antiferromagnetic moments in spintronic devices. This
allows for antiferromagnets to become active elements in devices. An addi
tional concept that has emerged is that antiferromagnets provide a unifyin
g platform for realizing synergies among three prominent fields of contemp
orary condensed matter physics: Dirac quasiparticles and topological phase
s. These recent developments have unlocked a multitude of known and newly
identified unique features of this "dormant-giant" class of materials that
the community is beginning to explore.\n\nContact Person: Achim Rosch
