Quantum Ergodicity - Basic Ideas and Recent Developments

Lund, 22nd - 24th January 2004

Lund's medieval dome Organizers: (
Stefan Keppeler (Lund), Andrei Khrennikov (Växjö) and Jörg Schmeling (Lund)

Topic: Quantum ergodicity deals with the asymptotic equidistribution of eigenfunctions of quantum systems with ergodic classical limit. As such the subject has close links to questions in both mathematics and physics, e.g. quantum chaos, localization/scarring, quasi modes, semiclassical time evolution, and number theory, which were covered by the different contributions.

Plan: The workshop consisted of two mini courses (3 hours each) introducing the subject of quantum ergodicity from both a physics and a mathematics perspective (given by Arnd Bäcker and Pär Kurlberg, respectively), as well as research talks on recent developments. Thus it was also aimed at an audience of advanced students and researchers who were not experts in the field (yet ;-).
