New developments in relativistic quantum mechanics and applications

30th July 2012 to 3rd August 2012

Organisers: Malcolm Brown (Cardiff), Maria J. Esteban (CNRS & Université Paris-Dauphine), Karl Schmidt (Cardiff) and Heinz Siedentop (Munich)

Workshop Theme

The Dirac operator and other relativistic Hamiltonians present a great variety of intriguing challenges, both regarding their physical interpretation and their mathematical analysis. Over the years, the study of these operators has been approached from many, often independent, different angles. A recent mathematical challenge posed by physics is the consistent description of relativistic multi-particle systems in particular in graphene. This workshop aims at drawing together recent work on the various aspects of the operators of relativistic quantum mechanics, to provide an overview of the problems and techniques, and to create synergy to bring the subject forward in novel ways.
