September – December 2018 » Thematic Semester on Mathematical Challenges in Many-Body Physics and Quantum Information

International Scientific Advisory Committee: Joseph Avron (Technion), Svetlana Jitomirskaya (UC Irvine), Mathieu Lewin (Paris-Dauphine), Bruno Nachtergaele (UC Davis), Claude-Alain Pillet (Toulon), Robert Seiringer (IST Austria), Armen Shirikyan (Cergy-Pontoise), Barry Simon (Caltech)

Local Organizing Committee: Jacques Hurtubise (McGill), Dmitry Jakobson (McGill), Vojkan Jakšić (McGill), Dmitry Korotkin (Concordia), Luc Vinet (Montréal)

The opening events of the thematic program are the XIX International Congress on Mathematical Physics and the accompanying satellite meetings. They will be followed by five workshops held at the CRM and a joint CRM-Princeton workshop held at Princeton. Long-term participants will give daily seminars and mini-courses between the workshops.


Svetlana Jitomirskaya (UC Irvine)
Her lectures will be a part of the workshop on Spectral Theory of Quasi-Periodic and Random Operators.

Robert Seiringer (IST Austria)
His lectures will be a part of the workshop on Many-Body Quantum Mechanics.
