The Erwin Schroedinger Institute for Mathematical Physics

Quantum many-body systems, random matrices, and disorder

The goal of this programme is to bring together leading experts in the mathematical analysis of many-body quantum systems and random operators/matrices and generate a stimulating atmosphere in which new mathematical tools for dealing with these complex systems can be developed.

Disordered many-body systems form the interface for theses two main topics of the programme. The recent rigorous results have been partially obtained by researchers whose expertise has been mainly in either the field of random operators or the field of many-particle quantum mechanics.  In view of the emerging interesting results on this interface, a combination of forces seems due. The programme offers an ideal opportunity to stimulate the exchange of ideas and initiate cooperations among these two communities.

During the programme, there will be two focussed workshops
