Workshop of Quantum Simulation and Quantum Walks 2015

November 16th - 18th, 2015 Yokohama National University

Venue

Yokohama National University, Education and Culture Hall

How to reach the venue

You find Access map. The organizers recommend that you should take the bus at Yokohama train station.
You can see Yokohama National University on Campus Map (S1-2).

Access Information

On the first day, some of the organizers will guide you to go together to Yokohama National University from Yokohama and Sakuragi-Cho train station. The details are checked in this. Alternatively, the bus from Yokohama train station to the nearest bus stop, Okazawa-cho, can be checked here.

Aim

The Nature is always changed dynamically even in quantum mechanics. Quantum walks, which are quantum-mechanical analogues of random walks, are promising toy models to understand quantum dynamics. Surprisingly, these models can be experimentally demonstrated in some physical models. This workshop will be open for interdisciplinary researchers from the theoretical and experimental sides on the discrete-time and continuous-time quantum walks, for examples, mathematics, physics, quantum information, and statistical mechanics. The organizers strongly encourage young researchers to actively join us to this workshop.
