Workshop on

Aspects of Large Quantum Systems Related to Bose-Einstein Condensation

Thursday April 15 - Saturday April 17, 2004
Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Aarhus
Auditorium G1, Building 532


Arne Jensen (Scientific Director, MaPhySto, Aalborg University)

Horia Cornean (MaPhySto, Aalborg University)

Erik Skibsted (MaPhySto, University of Aarhus)

Klaus Mølmer (Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Aarhus)

Jean-Michel Combes (Université de Toulon et du Var)

The purpose of the workshop was to present results on, and to discuss, aspects of large quantum systems related to Bose-Einstein condensation. The aim was to consider three themes from three points of view The workshop gathered participants covering all three points of view, with the hope of furthering interaction between the participants, and a fruitful exchange of ideas and possible directions of future research.
