Symposium on Quantum Fields in Dynamical Nature, on the occasion of Professor Izumi Ojima's retirement


March 5th (Thu.) - 6th (Fri.), 2015


Kyoto University, North Campus, Maskawa Hall


On the occasion of Professor Izumi Ojima's retirement, a symposium on quantum fields in dynamical nature will be held. Professor Izumi Ojima has been working on quantum field theory in connection with the dynamical nature since his early academic career. He has given great contributions to "interdisciplinary" fields among mathematics, mathematical physics, and theoretical physics from his original viewpoint of "Micro-Macro duality". Now, his research interest seems to go to the "living" aspect itself in the dynamical and creating nature ("natura naturans" in the old philosophical terminology). In this workshop, we would like to discuss with you quantum field theory, mathematical physics including theory of operator algebras, and molecular and life sciences.


You can find the program.
