Workshop Explores Quantum Symmetries
The Department of Mathematics will host a two-day DARPA and Shanks Workshop on “Quantum Symmetries” October 26-27, 2013. Several workshop participants will report on progress on DARPA funded research projects. Other talks will cover areas that could be broadly described as quantum symmetries.
Speakers will include Uffe Haagerup of the University of Copenhagen; Vaughan Jones and Zhengwei Liu of Vanderbilt University; Dima Shlyakhtenko of UCLA; and Kevin Waker from Microsoft.
The workshop is co-organized by Department Chair Dietmar Bisch and Distinguished Professor Vaughan Jones. Funding is being provided by DARPA Grant HR0011-12-1-0009 and the Shanks endowment.
