How to get to the Workshop
In recent years the subject of quantum measurement has attracted a lot of attention from the physics, mathematics and computer science communities. To a large extent this has happened due to the growth of the new interdisciplinary area of quantum information. The workshop will bring together some of the leading experts in the field of quantum measurement and stochastics from the mathematics, experimental and theoretical physics sides.
