2024 Simons Collaboration on the Localization of Waves Annual Meeting

The 2024 Annual Meeting of the Simons Collaboration on Localization of Waves will bring together top mathematicians and physicists who work on understanding and manipulating the behavior of waves in disordered media or complex geometry, with a particular focus on localization phenomena.

The two-day meeting will feature presentations of recent advances in the mathematics, physics, and applications of localization. These include new results on the geometric structure of random waves, theoretical advances in Anderson localization, and groundbreaking experiments in systems of cold atoms.

The meeting will also be an opportunity for all participants to engage in open discussion, exchange ideas and make new connections.

Detailed information can be found on the Simons Foundation event page.

WAVE Collaboration Annual Meeting 2023

The 2023 Annual Meeting of the Simons Collaboration on Localization of Waves will bring together many of the world’s top mathematicians and physicists who are working to understand and exploit the localization of waves brought about by a disordered environment or complex geometry, and related wave behaviors.

Wave Localization & Many-Body Localization in Quantum Information

Anderson localization of electronic states induced by the presence of a structural disorder at the atomic scale has been a long-standing theoretical and experimental puzzle. The question has pervaded other fields such as optics or cold atom physics, with experimental setups trying to achieve spatial localization of light or of atomic matter waves in Bose-Einstein condensates. This event is an opportunity to bring together researchers and students from these connected but different fields, to exchange and to cross-fertilize their approaches.

Wave Collaboration: Where We Are and Where We Are Going

The goals of the meeting are to present the key achievements of the first 4-year stage of the project and to jumpstart the program moving forward to the second stage. The workshop will cover all fields of the Collaboration, from experimental physics to pure mathematics, and will foster the opportunities to build interdisciplinary teams for most compelling current challenges in phase space, geometry, random media, dynamics, and transport.

Mathematical Physics aspects of localization

Within the framework of the Simons collaboration on localization on waves, we organize a workshop on the mathematical aspects of localization. The topics of the conference will include mathematical progress on Anderson's model in various dimensions, applications of the landscape function, graphical representations and random walk models associated with localization/delocalization questions, and percolation perspectives on random waves.

WAVE Collaboration Annual Meeting 2022

The 2022 Simons Collaboration on Localization of Waves Annual Meeting will bring together world leading mathematicians and physicists whose work illuminates profound connections between disorder, geometric complexity, and the behavior of waves. The meeting will highlight how recent advances in mathematics yield important applications in physics involving wave localization. In particular, speakers will unveil groundbreaking results relating harmonic analysis and geometrical measure theory to cold atoms, nitride-based LEDs, and perovskites.

Workshop on Semiconductors, perovskites and 2D materials

A workshop on the physics of disorder in semiconductors. We will focus on electronic processes in the presence of localization related to disorder in different families of semiconductor materials: perovskites, nitrides and 2D TMDCs.
