Simulational Methods in Physics


Each day, a morning lecture is scheduled for an introductory review. Topics and lecturers include:

The BEC-BCS Crossover   -   Wilhelm Zwerger (TU München)
Quantum Gases in Optical Lattices   -   Hans Peter Büchler (IQOQI Innsbruck)
Nonequilibrium Dynamics   -   Gert Aarts (Swansea)

These lectures will be followed by further contributions of the participants devoted to the presentation of new developments, leaving also plenty of time for discussions.
