Spectral Methods in Mathematical Physics

14 January - 26 April 2019

Mathematical Physics aims at a mathematically rigorous understanding of complex phenomena in nature. The program is particularly concerned with quantum effects and, in particular, with the theory of Schroedinger’s equation. Both classical one-body Schroedinger operator theory (including topics like semi-classical analysis, eigenvalue inequalities, Anderson localization, non-selfadjoint operators) and many-body theory (including questions about ground state properties and dynamics in deterministic and random systems, and also the study of non-linear effective equations) are covered.

Our goal is to provide an update for the community on recent results, a discussion forum for future research goals and a starting point for new collaborations in the stimulating atmosphere of Institut Mittag-Leffler.
