Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 552; 2011; 224 ppMSC: Primary 35; 60; 81; 82; 15;
The goal of the Entropy and the Quantum schools has been to introduce young researchers to some of the exciting current topics in mathematical physics. These topics often involve analytic techniques that can easily be understood with a dose of physical intuition.
In March of 2010, four beautiful lectures were delivered on the campus of the University of Arizona. They included Isoperimetric Inequalities for Eigenvalues of the Laplacian by Rafael Benguria, Universality of Wigner Random Matrices by Laszlo Erdős, Kinetic Theory and the Kac Master Equation by Michael Loss, and Localization in Disordered Media by Günter Stolz. Additionally, there were talks by other senior scientists and a number of interesting presentations by junior participants. The range of the subjects and the enthusiasm of the young speakers are testimony to the great vitality of this field, and the lecture notes in this volume reflect well the diversity of this school.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in mathematical physics and analysis.
