Combinatorial physics refers to both the use of combinatorial theory to interpret or understand phenomena in physics, and conversely the use of techniques from physics to solve purely combinatorial problems. On the physics side, the general areas include statistical mechanics, quantum field theory and discrete quantum gravity, with some more specific areas being asymmetric exclusion processes, integrable models and renormalisation.
On the combinatorics side, the general areas include algebraic, enumerative and geometric combinatorics, with some more specific areas being alternating sign matrices, cluster algebras, graph polynomials and planar maps.
This workshop aims to bring together mathematical physicists and pure mathematicians, working on a range of topics within combinatorial physics, in a forum which provides formal talks as well as opportunities for informal discussions.
