An Isaac Newton Institute Workshop

Random Matrix Theory and Arithmetic Aspects of Quantum Chaos

28 June - 2 July 2004

Organisers: J Marklof (Bristol), F Mezzadri (Bristol) and Z Rudnick (Tel Aviv).

Supported by the European Commission, Sixth Framework Programme - Marie Curie Conferences and Training Courses - MSCF-CT-2003-503674

in association with the Newton Institute programme entitled
Random Matrix Approaches in Number Theory

Theme of Workshop:

One of the main objectives of quantum chaos is the understanding of how the ergodic properties of classical Hamiltonian systems affect the behaviour of the eigenfunctions and spectra of the corresponding quantum mechanics in the semiclassical limit. Some of the main open problems concern the equidistribution of all eigenstates in phase space (quantum unique ergodicity) and the statistical distributions of the energy levels. The workshop will focus on the study of quantum systems in a natural number-theoretic setting, which have provided ground for the most recent advances towards the solutions of many outstanding problems in quantum chaos.
