Arrival of Dalimil Mazáč at IPhT

**We are pleased to announce that Dalimil Mazáč will join the IPhT as a CEA Permanent Researcher as of August 1, 2023.**

Dalimil prepared his thesis at the Perimeter Institute under the supervision of Davide Gaiotto, he then did a first postdoc at the SCGP at Stony Brook before joining the IAS at Princeton where he will stay until he will join our Institute. During his thesis, Dalimil wrote a paper on Analytic Bounds

and Emergence of AdS2 Physics from the Conformal Bootstrap which raised a lot of interest, as he introduced the notion of analytic functional

crucial to obtain rigorous bounds in the conformal bootstrap framework. Even more remarkably, his approach is in fact equivalent to Viazovska's solution of the optimal sphere stacking problem in dimension 8, as Dalimil discovered in later developments.

Since then, he has been interested in applications of analytic functionals to quantum gravity, and is currently exploring the relations between conformal theories and spectral properties of hyperbolic varieties. Dalimil will bring his expertise to the mathematical physics certainly also have fruitful interactions with the other groups. We are delighted with this hiring which will contribute greatly to the dynamics of the laboratory.
