DESCRIPTION:IMPORTANT NOTICE: This program has been postponed from 2020.\n
\nNew event dates are: 14 - 18 June 2021 \nFor more information\, plea
se contact: ELLIPT2020@uni-mainz.de\n\nScattering amplitudes are the build
ing blocks that allow us to compute predictions for high-energy experiment
s like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Despite their importance\,
the computation of scattering amplitudes is a very complex task. As the n
umber of particles and/or the precision of the prediction increases\, one
faces an exponential growth in complexity and computations quickly become
intractable. At the same time\, the mathematical theory of the functions d
escribing generic scattering amplitudes needed for high precision is insuf
ficiently developed. Novel and powerful techniques are required in order t
o make precise predictions for collider experiments.\n\nWhile there was a
lot of progress over the last couple of years in understanding the mathema
tics of the functions that appear in scattering amplitude computations\, i
t is known that new classes of functions show up that are poorly understoo
d even from the mathematical side. Therefore\, these so-called ”elliptic
functions” are currently an active area of research not only in collide
r physics\, but also in seemingly disconnected areas like string theory an
d pure mathematics.\n\nThe aim of the topical workshop is to bring togethe
r particle physicists\, string theorists and mathematicians working on ell
iptic functions\, with the grand goal of advancing our understanding of el
liptic functions required to make precise predictions for future particle
physics experiments.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/212/
