Work package description
Work package number and title: WP5 Workshop on Quantum Chaos and Localisation Phenomena.

Web page:


To assess achievements and to formulate directions of new research on quantum chaos and localisation. The central idea of the workshop is to bring together prominent experimental and theoretical physicists who share a common interest in quantum chaos and localisation phenomena.

Description of the contents:

Two 2-days long workshops will be organised in 2003 and 2005. The workshop will be attended by approximately 15 invited speakers and about 25 participants. Invited and contributed talks will focus on the following topics:

  • Quantum chaos and nonlinear classical systems,
  • Quantum and microwave billiards,
  • Quantum and microwave graphs,
  • Atoms in strong electromagnetic fields - experiment and theory,
  • Chaos vs. Coherent effects in multiple scattering,
  • Anderson localisation,
  • Random lasers,
  • Quantum chaos and quantum computing.
Persons responsible in the Centre: Assoc. Profs. Leszek Sirko, and Arkadiusz Or³owski.
