Quantum Spin Systems
Bruno Nachtergaele, Distinguished Lecturer
June 16-20, 2014
University of Alabama at Birmingham
Write an application letter (at most 1 page) saying who you are and why you are interested in the conference.
NSF proposal has received final approval. We expect to support
approximately 35 graduate students and early-career postgraduates.
Funding may include a travel allowance of up to $500, lodging, and a
contribution towards meals.
participants and participants supported by outside funding should
email the organizers to indicate which dates they plan to attend.
- Participants who plan to apply for funding should do the following:
you are a graduate student also request your advisor to send a brief
letter of recommendation in addition to your application.
Send the applications (and letter if appropriate) to one (and only one) of the organizers:
firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
(remove ".exclude"; direct links are provided down below).
We still accept applications, but funding is now subject to availability.
The topics considered in the conference will include some of the areas where Bruno Nachtergaele has contributed signficantly:
- Introduction to quantum spin systems
- Finitely correlated states
- Lower bounds for eigenvalues of quantum spin systems
- Interfaces in quantum spin systems
- Improved Lieb-Robinson bounds
- Applications to quantum information theory
- Classification of phases for quantum states in 1d
- Quantum phase transitions
- Graphical representations for quantum spin systems
** To be posted during the conference
