Workshop on Local Symmetry in Wave Mechanics 2017
July 5 - 7, 2017
The Workshop on Local Symmetry in Wave Mechanics 2017 addresses research advances in theory and experiment on possible effects and applications of local symmetries in wave mechanics within different fields of physics. The goal is to establish a unified viewpoint on wave phenomena in complex structures with localized order, in systems ranging from discrete and continuous photonics and acoustics to one- and many-body quantum mechanics, focusing on effects induced by symmetry, topology, nonlinearity or non-Hermiticity. The workshop provides a common platform to tackle the involved challenges of theoretical development as well as experimental realization, aiming at the fundamental understanding and control of wave scattering, propagation and localization. Held at the Center of Optical Quantum Technologies at Hamburg University, the event brings together international speakers and guests, offering a unique opportunity for creative discussions and fruitful collaborations.
