WoLQS: Workshop on Localisation in Quantum Systems

1-2 June 2017
Venue: King's College London, Strand Campus
Contact: WoLQS Organising Committee

Ever since Anderson’s groundbreaking work, localisation has been a concept of great importance in modern condensed matter theory as well as statistical physics. The initial intuition about the intimate relation between disorder and localisation of single-particle quantum states has, since Anderson’s paper, evolved and diversified. Novel numerical techniques and analytical developments have opened up new frontiers in understanding the role that disorder plays in strongly correlated, extended systems, and how it can give rise to localisation.


The workshop will bring together experts to provide pedagogical introductions and highlights of contemporary research covering different aspects of localisation.

Format & Programme
The core topics and confirmed speakers are:

  • Dr Zlatko Papić (Leeds University) on Many-body localisation
  • Prof. Vladimir Kravtsov (ICTP Trieste) on Localisation on graphs
  • Prof. Vladimir Dobrosavljević (Florida State University) on Localisation with Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT)

We also welcome contributed talks and posters from participants.
