DESCRIPTION:Scattering amplitudes are the building blocks that allow us to
compute predictions for high-energy experiments like the Large Hadron Col
lider (LHC) at CERN. Despite their importance\, the computation of scatter
ing amplitudes is a very complex task. As the number of particles and/or t
he precision of the prediction increases\, one faces an exponential growth
in complexity and computations quickly become intractable. At the same ti
me\, the mathematical theory of the functions describing generic scatterin
g amplitudes needed for high precision is insufficiently developed. Novel
and powerful techniques are required in order to make precise predictions
for collider experiments.\n\nWhile there was a lot of progress over the la
st couple of years in understanding the mathematics of the functions that
appear in scattering amplitude computations\, it is known that new classes
of functions show up that are poorly understood even from the mathematica
l side. Therefore\, these so-called ”elliptic functions” are currently
an active area of research not only in collider physics\, but also in see
mingly disconnected areas like string theory and pure mathematics.\n\nThe
aim of the topical workshop is to bring together particle physicists\, str
ing theorists and mathematicians working on elliptic functions\, with the
grand goal of advancing our understanding of elliptic functions required t
o make precise predictions for future particle physics experiments.\n\nhtt
