Critical Stability of Quantum Few-Body Systems

International School & Workshop
9 - 20 October 2017

Workshop week: 16 - 20 October 2017

The lectures in the school will introduce basic few-body techniques understandable for mature master students. It will serve as an introduction to the following  workshop. The interdisciplinary workshop will focus on the properties of weakly bound few-body quantum states at the edge of stability, and aim at exchanging information between different subfields where the same concepts
and techniques are used.

Topics include

       Topics during school:

  • Few-body techniques using coordinate space for bound and continuum states
  • Few-body techniques using momentum space for bound and continuum states
  • Universality in few-body systems
  • One- and two-dimensional systems

    Topics during workshop:
  • Universality or Efimov physics
  • Finite-range corrections to Efimov physics
  • From few to many degrees of freedom
  • One- and two-dimensional systems
  • Dimensional crossover
  • Multicomponent systems
  • Dynamic evolution
  • Reactions with weakly bound systems
  • Mathematical problems
