Aim and topics

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  mainly  addressed to  young people interested   in   working  on  the  subject.   Among the topics covered:  spectral  and  scattering   theory  for  Schrödinger   operators,  effective behavior   in   many   particles   quantum   systems,   Bose-Einstein condensation,  nonlinear  Schrödinger  equation,  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.
