Mathematical Horizons for Quantum Physics 2
Month: August 2013
Date: August 12--October 11
Name: Mathematical Horizons for Quantum Physics 2
Location: Institute for Mathematical Sciences, National University of Singapore, Singapore.
Quantum theory is one of the most important intellectual developments of the early twentieth century. Since then there has been much interplay between theoretical physics and mathematics, both pure and applied. In this tradition, it is the objective of this IMS Programme to bring together mathematicians whose work has a bearing on quantum physics, with researchers in mathematical physics and theoretical physics whose work will benefit from the mathematical progress. The Programme will consist of four overlapping three-week sessions, each devoted to a selected topic: Quantum information theory; information-theoretic approaches to thermodynamics; many-particle systems and open quantum systems.
