Atomic Physics 2018

International Workshop on Atomic Physics
27 – 30 November 2018

with a focus on

"Trajectories in AMOP Physics" 

Trajectories are a common concept for approximating the quantum description of microscopic phenomena. Yet motivation, justification and implementation vary considerably depending on the problem. The focus of this year’s Atomic Physics workshop will provide a synopsis and at the same time a possibility for cross fertilization of trajectory approaches in atomic, molecular, optical and plasma physics. This includes quantum trajectories and Bohmian mechanics in addition to all classical, semiclassical and hybrid quantum-classical  formulations.

The workshop will take place this year from Tuesday to Friday noon.

As in the past years a fraction of the slots are devoted to presentations about topics of general interest in atomic physics.

Talks start Tuesday noon, the morning is devoted to tutorials about semiclassical trajectory methods.
