**INTRODUCTION**

Expository
Quantum Lecture Series (EQuaLS) is a series of lectures newly conducted by Laboratory
of Theoretical Studies and Laboratory of Computational Science and Informatics,
Institute for Mathematical Research together with Physics Department, **
Faculty of Science**, ** Universiti
Putra Malaysia**. This lecture series is formerly known as
TSL Expository Lecture Series (TSLELS), conducted by Institute of Advanced Technology
(**TSLELS3**,
**
TSLELS4** and **
TSLELS5**).
The main objective of these lectures is to rapidly introduce and update
local researchers and students with the latest developments and techniques in
quantum science and technology or related areas. It is well-known that quantum
physics besides being the fundamental theory of physics, also contributes to
many new developments of mathematics and also promises a new quantum technology.
In view of this, this lecture series serves as a platform to promote growth
in this important branch of science with possible technological implications.

In November 2007, Theoretical Studies Laboratory will organize the first event of this new series in collaboration with Physics Department. This first series will carry the theme "Geometry, Number Theory and Quantum Physics 2007". Frontier research in areas of geometry, number theory and quantum physics in advanced countries have shown mutually fruitful interactions between each other and thus it is the intent of this workshop to promote multi- and interdisciplinary research and collaboration among mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists locally and regionally.

The topics in the first series include

1) "A Review of Some
Quantization Techniques" by S. Twareque Ali (Concordia University, Canada)

2) "Geometry of Quantum States" by K. Zyczkowski (Jagiellonian University,
Poland)

3) "Quantum Chaos" by M. Sieber (University of Bristol, UK)

4) "Galois Quantum Systems" by A. Vourdas (University of Bradford, UK)

5) "Determinants and zeta-functions in complex geometry and quantum
field theory" by L. Takhtajan (SUNY, Stony Brook, USA)

**
WHO SHOULD ATTEND**

All researchers and students interested in problems of related physical sciences, computer science and mathematics.
