Random matrix models have been very successful in describing the universal statistics associated with spectra and eigenfunctions of complex quantum systems such as disordered solids, interacting many-body systems, and systems with chaotic classical dynamics. But there are still outstanding problems associated with the dynamical properties of complex systems and their long-time behavior. Moreover, most applications of random matrix theory have been to single-particle dynamics and it is important to understand how interactions may affect the statistical fluctuations.

The one-week workshop will bring together researchers who are interested in the dynamics of complex systems from various viewpoints, including random-matrix, semiclassical, field-theoretical and many-body methods.

Topics to be covered in the conference include:

  • Quantum chaos in mesoscopic systems

  • The statistical theory of quantum dots

  • Interaction effects in mesoscopic systems

  • Dynamical response and periodic orbit theory

  • Dissipation in chaotic systems

  • Dynamical models of random matrices

  • Universality in the long-time dynamics of classical systems

  • Theory and applications of non-hermitean random matrices

    This one-week workshop takes place in connection with the seminar held from March 30 to June 15, 1999.

    We encourage the submission of contributions. Some of the contributions will be chosen for oral presentations and others for poster presentations. An application form can be found on the web at the address below. The registration fee is DM 150.

    Deadline for applications is March 15, 1999
