MCQM20 Third School and Workshop

Mathematical Challenges in Quantum Mechanics

Como, Italy -- June 8 - 13, 2020

Aim and Scopes

The aim of the meeting is to present the state of the art in some challenging open problems in Quantum Mechanics from the point of view of Mathematical Physics. It is addressed to young people interested in working on the subject but also to experienced researchers willing to exchange the newest ideas and methods in the field. Among the topics covered: spectral and scattering theory for Schrödinger operators, effective behavior in many particles quantum systems, Bose-Einstein condensation, nonlinear Schrödinger equation, semiclassical analysis, numerical analysis of quantum systems, quantum graphs.

Three courses of 6 hours will be given in a series of lectures scheduled in the morning of each day. In the afternoon short contributed talks will be given by young participants, followed by plenary talks given by invited speakers.

A financial support covering accommodation expenses will be available for a limited number of young participants.

We are all understandably worried about the new developments with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic. We are closely following the evolution of the situation, and of course, the safety of all the participants to MCQM20 is of most considerable importance to us.  

At present, the organization of the conference is going on. However, we are ready to make any precautional decision to ensure the safety of all the attendees and to restrain the spreading of the epidemic.

We will keep you posted on any development concerning the conference.
