Complex patterns in wave functions - drums, graphs, and disorder
Organised by Dr Sven Gnutzmann and Professor Uzy Smilansky
Wave functions display complex patterns which are intensively studied in many branches of Mathematics and Physics. Their value distributions, nodal sets, extreme values, and localization properties - to cite a few examples - are investigated using diverse methods developed within a network of fields whose connectivity leaves a lot to be desired. This conference gives a unique opportunity to discuss these common questions, and present different points of view and methods, yet in a single high-level forum.
A set of world-leading researchers has been invited to lecture on their recent contributions to the field.
