Please register by August 15, 2024. Talk submission is open until July 31, 2024.

Fundamental physical interactions in experimentally available energy scales are pairwise and time-independent. Force between atoms is a result of a two-body potential, light-matter interaction involves two subsystems, and scattering in lattice systems takes a form of two-particle coupling. Such mechanisms are naturally time-independent, and any change in the dynamics can only be a result of external control.

The workshop Geometry of quantum dynamics is dedicated to the study of such systems. Some of such interactions happen naturally, and can be reliably tuned to suit various experimental needs. It may be asked then what states can be reached this way?

We will explore the expressive power of autonomous, two-body dynamics. Starting from tractable systems (e.g. spin dynamics), to quantum chaos, quantum control, and possible mathematical approaches: such topics will be discussed in 28-30 August 2024 at Universität Siegen in Siegen, Germany.

Confirmed speakers include:

  •  Henrik Wilming (Leibniz Universität Hannover),
  •  Mischa Woods (University of Grenoble Alpes/ENS Lyon),
  •  Géza Tóth (UPV/EHU, Bilbao and Wigner RCP, Budapest),
  •  Felix Huber (Bordeaux Computer Science Lab),
  •  Thomas Schulte-Herbrüggen (Technical University of Munich).

Submissions of contributed talks are welcome. Attendance is free of charge, but we are unable to provide travel support.
