# Quantum Matter in Mathematics and Physics

The CMSA will be hosting a year-long program on Quantum Matter in Math and Physics during academic year 2019-2020. This program will foster in-depth discussions and strive for cross-field collaborations between mathematics and physics, including on the subjects of condensed matter, quantum many-body physics and quantum information, high-energy particle physics, quantum field theory, and string theory, and mathematics including geometry, topology, and category theory via algebraic or analysis methods.

Additional points of study and discussion will include:

**Topological gapped phases of matter and quantum anomalies:**Bulk physics of Symmetry-Protected Topological state (SPTs), Symmetry-Enriched Topological Ordered state (SETs), and fractal or fractonic matter, with particular emphasis on higher-symmetries,sub-dimensional or subsystem symmetries, entanglement structures, and their boundary phenomena and dynamical constraints.**Critical phenomena, gapless phases, and phase transitions:**Emergent or approximate conformal field theories, interactions effects to Fermi surfaces, Weyl semimetal, high-temperature superconductor such as cuprate, and strange metal, or twisted bilayer graphenes.**Non-perturbative effects in condensed matter and gauge theories:**Applications to fractional quantum Hall states, quantum spin liquids and exotic lattice models, strong/weak interactions and beyond Standard Model physics.

On **December 2-4, 2019** the CMSA will be hosting a **workshop on Quantum Matter** as part of our **program on Quantum Matter in Mathematics and Physics**.
