APCTP Focus Program

Finite-size Technology in Low Dimensional Quantum System (IV)

June 25 - July 15, 2008 APCTP (Pohang, Korea)

The focus program on Finite-size Technology in Low Dimensional Quantum System (IV) is going to be held from 25 June - 15 July (3 weeks), 2008 in Pohang, Korea. This is the continuing program of the first meeting in December 4-17, 2003 (Pohang), the second in June 25 - July 15, 2005 (Pohang) and the third in 8 January - 8 February, 2007 (Melbourne). During the program the participants are expected to very actively participate in the collaborative research activies.


Developing of finite-size technology in low dimensional quantum system and probing of the scaling Behavior using quantum mechanics, field theory and lattice statistical approach which include conformal theory, boundary conformal theory, integrable theory, boundary integrable theory.
