Complex patterns in wave functions - drums, graphs, and disorder


Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Sven Gnutzmann and Professor Uzy Smilansky

Event details

Wave functions display complex patterns which are intensively studied in many branches of Mathematics and Physics.  Their value distributions, nodal sets, extreme values, and localization properties - to cite a few examples - are investigated using diverse methods developed within a network of fields whose connectivity leaves a lot to be desired. This conference gives a unique opportunity to discuss these common questions, and present different points of view and methods, yet in a single high-level forum.

A set of world-leading researchers has been invited to lecture on their recent contributions to the field.

Biographies of the organisers and speakers are available below and you can download a programme. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event and the papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences
