We are pleased to invite postgraduate researchers, from inside and outside the UK, to exchange ideas on the mathematical aspects of relativistic quantum physics. A special focus will be given to relativistic quantum information, a relatively young field which combines techniques from quantum field theory, quantum gravity, quantum information and quantum optics.
Our invited speakers reflect the diversity of areas covered:
Prof. Bob Coecke (Oxford)
Dr. Ivette Fuentes (Nottingham)
Dr. Etera Livine (Lyon)
Prof. Tim Ralph (Brisbane)
A postgraduate student conference on Mathematical Techniques for Quantum Physics will take place in Nottingham (U.K.) from 7 - 9 November 2012.
The conference will emphasise quantum information, quantum gravity and quantum disordered systems. Respectively, the invited speakers from each area are:
*Nilanjana Datta (Cambridge),
*Samuel Braunstein (York), and
*Karoline Wiesner (Bristol).
The conference focuses on causality and nonlocality in physics, with emphasis on its implications with time machines. In particular this issue will be dealt with from the viewpoints of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, two theories that, even though extensively verified on their own, are seemingly irreconcilable up today.
