Pauli2016 — Reduced Density Matrices in Quantum Physics and Role of Fermionic Exchange Symmetry
ID
789778
Dates
12 Apr 2016 - 15 Apr 2016
Location
Oxford, United Kingdom
Abstract
The interdisciplinary workshop brings together experts in quantum science, as e.g. quantum information theory, quantum chemistry, solid state physics and mathematical physics. The aim is to explore from a conceptual viewpoint the influence of the fermionic exchange symmetry and its consequences for the reduced 1-and 2-fermion picture. In particular, a better understanding should be developed of how the conflict of energy minimization and antisymmetry of the N-fermion quantum state leads to simplified descriptions of fermionic ground states.
Topics
particle exchange symmetry, reduced density matrices, generalized Pauli constraints, degeneracy pressure, numerical methods

International Conference on the Frontiers in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
ID
782983
Dates
23 May 2016 - 26 May 2016
Location
Shanghai, China
Abstract
Atoms, molecules, and light have been at the forefront of understanding quantum mechanics, since its discovery over 100 years ago. Since then the field has progressed from understanding the most fundamental aspects of how particles behave under quantum mechanics to controlling individual atoms for creating new technologies. While matter and light are from ordinary experience rather different, with today’s control of coherent quantum phenomena many of the ideas freely cross their respective boundaries. Some of the topics that will be covered at the conference include, but are not limited to, cold atoms & cold molecules, ultrafast & precision spectroscopy, quantum manipulation & precision measurement, quantum computing & quantum communication, and quantum metrology. In this conference we aim to bring together the leading experts working in the frontiers of atomic, molecular, and optical systems.

Universality in Few-Body Systems
ID
781798
Dates
07 Nov 2016 - 16 Dec 2016
Location
Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract
Research into the physics of few-body systems (FBS) has gained renewed momentum in the last few years, particularly as a result of advances in studies of ultra-cold atomic and molecular quantum gases. Investigation of  FBS in atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics benefits from the combination of experimentally tunable interactions with innovative theoretical and numerical tools. The emergent universality seen in FBS is at the heart of synergy between seemingly disparate realizations such as AMO, condensed matter, and nuclear systems, as well as applications to chemistry and quantum information/quantum simulation.  The goals of this program are to stimulate interactions amongst researchers from these communities and to explore the common features of diverse phenomena addressable with FBS techniques.  Areas of key focus will highlight the central role that few-body physics can play to bring together researchers from many traditionally disjointed fields.  Specific problems of study will include (i) novel theoretical formulations and quantum control, (ii) role of anisotropy, imbalance, multi-scale interactions, non-adiabaticity, confined geometries, (iii) applications to wide variety of nuclear, atomic/molecular, and condensed matter systems. A close interaction between theorists and experimentalists will stimulate new synergy in scientific exploration that will also help to bridge the gap between the physics of few- and many-body systems.

Synthetic Quantum Matter
ID
781746
Dates
14 Nov 2016 - 16 Nov 2016
Location
Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract
The fields of condensed matter and atomic, molecular, and optical physics now reside in a fascinating era where the design and control of large-scale "synthetic quantum matter" is becoming a reality. Designer platforms synthesized from cold atoms, ions, defects in solids, circuit QED architectures, and solid-state heterostructures (among others) illuminate pathways to many-body quantum phenomena that, in many cases, are exceedingly difficult to find intrinsically in isolated materials. Synthetic quantum matter reveals new facets of quantum many-body physics in controlled laboratory settings and also advances technological applications in the field of quantum information science.

The program aims to advance design and characterization of synthetic quantum matter by leveraging strategies employed successfully within various subdisciplines. On a more fundamental level, the program further aims at finding efficient ways to utilize quantum information tools to characterize highly entangled quantum states and their dynamical evolution far from equilibrium. It should additionally identify routes by which complex entanglement structures and their dynamical evolution can be probed and possibly protected from decoherence in experiments. The interdisciplinary nature of the program will bring together theoretical and experimental researchers from a broad range of fields to attack these questions.
