Ways to Manipulate Waves

IAS Winter School and Workshop on Advanced Concepts in Wave Physics: Topology and Parity-time Symmetries
11 – 15 Jan 2016

To explore the application of modern concepts such as topological invariants and parity-time symmetry to the manipulation of wave, IAS organized a winter school and workshop on Advanced Concepts in Wave Physics: Topology and Parity-time Symmetries.

In additional to the 10 lectures covering topological concepts, parity-time symmetry notions and their applications to physics of waves given by renowned physicists, over 30 talks were delivered by the speakers. Young scientists also seized the occasion to share their research with program participants through poster display and presentations. The ample discussions among participants during the program not only facilitated the exchange of research ideas, but also promoted more research collaborations across institutions.
