Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 447; 2007; 256 ppMSC: Primary 35; 47; 81
This volume consists of refereed research articles written by some of the speakers at this international conference in honor of the sixtyfifth birthday of JeanMichel Combes. The topics span modern mathematical physics with contributions on stateoftheart results in the theory of random operators, including localization for random Schrödinger operators with general probability measures, random magnetic Schrödinger operators, and interacting multiparticle operators with random potentials; transport properties of Schrödinger operators and classical Hamiltonian systems; equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of open quantum systems; semiclassical methods for multiparticle systems and longtime evolution of wave packets; modeling of nanostructures; properties of eigenfunctions for firstorder systems and solutions to the GinzburgLandau system; effective Hamiltonians for quantum resonances; quantum graphs, including scattering theory and trace formulas; random matrix theory; and quantum information theory. Graduate students and researchers will benefit from the accessibility of these articles and their current bibliographies.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in mathematical physics and statistical mechanics.
