Each robo t emits light\; in turn\, it adapts the speed of its motion to the total i ntensity of the light shed on it by the other robots. The adaptation take s time---the sensorial delay. Using a natural approximation of the equati ons of motion\, the robots may be programmed to make the sensorial delay n egative. In this case they are\, in some sense\, predicting the future. In a series of experiments by the Giovanni Volpe group and the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) it was shown that at a certain negative value of th e delay\, the collective behavior of the robots changes qualitatively from aggregation to deaggregation.

The framework is local and fully covariant\, allowin g the consistent description of measurements made in spacelike separated r egions. Furthermore\, specific models can be given in which the framework may be exemplified by concrete calculations. I will also explain how this framework can shed light on an old problem due to Sorkin concerning "impos sible measurements" in which measurement apparently conflicts with causali ty.

Progress in this respect has b een made in integrable field theories in 1+1 spacetime dimensions. These a re characterized by a factorizing scattering matrix\, where two-particle i nteraction determines scattering completely.\n\nSpecifically\, some of the se theories (so-called scalar models without bound states) have been succe ssfully treated in the operator-algebraic approach\, which is based on qua ntum fields localized in infinitely extended wedge regions. The existence of strictly localized observables is then obtained by abstract W*-algebrai c arguments. This avoids dealing with the functional analytic properties o f pointlike interacting fields\, which are difficult to control due to the convergence problem of the infinite series of their form factors.\n\nIn e xtension of these results\, we consider S-matrices with poles in the physi cal strip (corresponding to the notion of `bound states’ in the quantum mechanical sense). We exhibit wedge-local fields in these models\, which arise as a deformation of those in the non-boundstate models by an additiv e term\, the so called ``bound state operator''. This technique applies to a variety of theories\, e.g.\, the Bullough-Dodd model\, the Z(N)-Ising m odel\, the affine Toda field theories and the Sine-Gordon model.

One of them is existence of the so-called soliton solutions representing solitary waves travelling with constant speed and shape\, as well as a special way in which several such solitons interact. Another interesting fact is that solutions of the KdV equation can be obtained as solutions of the inverse scattering probl em for the family of associated Schroedinger operators\, as discovered by S.Gardner\, J.Green\, M.Kruskal and R.Miura in 1967\, and the classical so liton solutions of the KdV correspond precisely to the so-called reflectio nless potentials (I.Kay and H.Moses\, 1956).\n\nThe aim of this talk is tw o-fold. Firstly\, we characterise the family of all Schroedinger operators with integrable reflectionless potentials and give an explicit formula pr oducing all such potentials. Secondly\, we use the inverse scattering tran sform approach to describe all solutions of the KdV equation whose initial (t=0) profile is an integrable reflectionless potential.

Hydrodynamics\, which is the theory for the emergent large-scale dynamics\, gives a lot of information\, such as exact asymptotics of corre lation functions. It turns out that at the Euler scale\, the emergent theo ry for extended systems is largely universal. I will discuss a number of s uch universal results in one dimension of space. Some can be shown rigorou sly: a notion of ergodicity at all frequencies hold for correlation functi ons in stationary states of all short-range quantum spin chains. The Boltz mann-Gibbs principle\, where local observables project onto hydrodynamic m odes in two-point functions\, and the linearised Euler equations\, are als o established. The complete space of hydrodynamic modes is the space of `` extensive conserved quantities”\, which is defined unambiguously. I will illustrate these concepts in integrable systems\, using generalised hydro dynamics. For correlations in non-stationary states\, much less is establi shed. I will describe a macroscopic fluctuation theory for the Euler scale which provides a framework for these.

It is applicable to a large class of parabolic or elliptic SPDEs with fractional Laplacian\, additive noise and polynomial non-linearity. It covers equations in the whole super-renormalizable regime. A nice featu re of the method is that it avoids the algebraic and combinatorial problem s arising in different approaches.

Paris Dauphine) as part of One world IAMP mathematical physics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nRecent years ha ve seen a great deal of progress in understanding the behavior of bootstra p percolation (BP) models\, a particular class of monotone cellular automa ta. In the initial configuration sites are occupied with probability p. Th e evolution of BP occurs at discrete times: empty sites stay empty and occ upied sites are emptied iff a certain model dependent neighborhood is alre ady empty. In the Euclidean lattice there is now a complete understanding of the large time evolution with a universality picture for the critical b ehavior. Much less is known for their non-monotone stochastic counterpart\ , namely kinetically constrained models (KCM). In KCM each vertex is updat ed independently at rate p (respectively 1-p) to occupied (respectively e mpty) iff it could be emptied in the next step by the bootstrap model. In the last two decades KCM have been the subject of intensive research both in physics and mathematics literature. The main motivation is that\, for c ertain choices of the constraints\, when p goes to zero KCM display some o f the most striking features of the liquid/glass transition. Indeed\, they were originally introduced in the 80's to support the free volume theorie s and later on used as the simplest lattice models reproducing the dynamic al facilitation scenario. In this seminar I will discuss some recent rigor ous results on the characteristic time scales of KCM as p goes to zero as well as the connection with the critical behavior of the corresponding BP models.\n LOCATION:https://researchseminars.org/talk/IAMP_seminars/134/ END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Flora Koukiou (Cergy–Pontoise University) DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20230530T140000Z DTEND;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20230530T150000Z DTSTAMP;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20240614T061225Z UID:IAMP_seminars/135 DESCRIPTION:Title: Freezing and Entropy of the Log-correlated Random fields\nby F lora Koukiou (Cergy–Pontoise University) as part of One world IAMP mathe matical physics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFreezing is a concept that was int roduced more than thirty years ago and has since been\nstudied in the cont ext of statistical mechanics and\, more recently\, has been related to mul tifractality and\nextreme value statistics.\nIn this talk\, after a short survey\, we define freezing in relation to the behaviour of the entropy of the Gibbs measures for several mean-field models.\n LOCATION:https://researchseminars.org/talk/IAMP_seminars/135/ END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Scott Armstrong (New York University) DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20230613T140000Z DTEND;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20230613T150000Z DTSTAMP;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20240614T061225Z UID:IAMP_seminars/136 DESCRIPTION:Title: Anomalous diffusion for passive scalar equations by fractal homoge nization\nby Scott Armstrong (New York University) as part of One worl d IAMP mathematical physics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk I will des cribe the main ideas in a recent joint work with Vlad Vicol.

At a specific temper ature the system is equivalent to the eigenvalue ensemble of a normal rand om matrix model. In equilibrium the particles form droplets when placed in an external potential. Using the Riemann-Hilbert approach we determine th e local statistical behaviour of the particles at the merging point of dro plets and observe an anisotropic scaling behaviour with particles being mu ch further apart in the direction of merging than the perpendicular direct ion\, effectively generating a one dimensional particle system.

In a new work with A.G. Pas segger\, we show that \nthe behaviour of such\n a detector system is quit e different if it moves with constant \nvelocity with respect to\n an ine rtial system in which a quantum field is in a KMS state\, and \nto which t he detector is\n locally coupled. Concretely\, combining previous results known in the \nliterature\, we show that\n for any quantum field theory in Minkowski spacetime\, two primary \nstates KMS states with respect\n t o different inertial frames are disjoint (belong to inequivalent \nfolia o f states) if they fulfill\n a suitable clustering condition. The quantize d free scalar field is \nan example where the conditions\n are fulfilled. Put differently\, Lorentz symmetry is broken (not \nunitarily implementab le) in\n quantum field theory in inertial thermal (KMS) representations. \n(This seems to belong to "general wisdom"\,\n but appears to have never been fully proved in the literature.) We \nargue\, along the lines of G. Sewell\,\n that the detector moving with constant velocity against the th ermal \nbackground of a quantum field\n in an inertial KMS state\, will n ot asymptotically thermalize - at \nleast the return to equilibrium\n arg uments are not applicable in this context because of the broken \nLorentz symmetry in inertial\n KMS states. We also argue that this corroborates t he view expressed \nby D. Buchholz and R. Verch\, and others\,\n that the Unruh effect is not due to thermal contact of the detector \nwith a "heat bath" supplied by the\n quantum field\, but is rather due to conversion of work to heat \nthrough the coupling of the\n detector to the quantum f ield and the externally driven motion of \nthe detector.\n LOCATION:https://researchseminars.org/talk/IAMP_seminars/150/ END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Claude-Alain Pillet (Toulon) DTSTART;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20240319T140000Z DTEND;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20240319T150000Z DTSTAMP;VALUE=DATE-TIME:20240614T061225Z UID:IAMP_seminars/151 DESCRIPTION:Title: Adiabatic Time Evolution and Quasi-Static Processes in Translation -Invariant Quantum Systems\nby Claude-Alain Pillet (Toulon) as part of One world IAMP mathematical physics seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe study the s lowly varying\, non-autonomous dynamics of a translation-invariant quantum spin system on the lattice Z^d .

Embezzlement (of entanglem ent)\, introduced by van Dam and Hayden\, denotes the task of producing an y entangled state to arbitrary precision from a shared entangled resource state\, the embezzling state\, using local operations without communicatio n while perturbing the resource arbitrarily little. \nWe show that Connes' classification of type III von Neumann algebras can be given a quantitati ve operational interpretation in terms of embezzlement. In particular\, th is quantification implies that all type III factors\, apart from some type III_0 factors\, host embezzling states. In contrast\, semifinite factors (type I or II) cannot host embezzling states. \nSpecifically\, type III_1 factors are characterized as "universal embezzlers“\, meaning every norm al state is embezzling. The latter observation provides a simple explanati on as to why relativistic quantum field theories maximally violate Bell in equalities.\nOur results follow from a one-to-one correspondence between e mbezzling states and invariant states on the flow of weights.\n\nThis is j oint work with Lauritz van Luijk\, Reinhard F.
