In conjunction with Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 (MPE 2013),
the Institute for Mathematical Research (INSPEM), Universiti Putra Malaysia will be organizing the Expository Quantum Lecture Series or EQuaLS
on 22 - 24 November 2013 in INSPEM Seminar Room, INSPEM Bulding, Universiti Putra Malaysia. Expository Quantum Lecture Series or EQuaLS is a lecture series initiated by a loose grouping of theoretical physicists associated with the Institute for Mathematical Research (INSPEM) and Faculty of Science in Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). Beginning in 2007, EQuaLS has been held almost annually, each carrying a theme associated to quantum sciences and related topics in theoretical physics, in general. The objective of this lecture series is to rapidly introduce students and researchers to frontier topics of theoretical physics, quantum sciences and other related areas by inviting prominent researchers in the area. EQuaLS 2013 is organized by Laboratory of Computational Sciences and Mathematical Physics of INSPEM and the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, UPM. It is also supported by the Malaysian Institute of Physics (IFM). This yearâ€™s EQuaLS is held in conjunction with Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 of which INSPEM is a participating institution. Thus, EQuaLS 2013 takes on the general theme Complex Systems recognizing the fact that our very planet and civilization are examples of such systems. Topics covered in the lectures will be those related to biological systems, social systems and other physical systems whose interacting parts give rise to emergent collective behavior. There will be also limited slots for contributed talks. Participants who are interested in contributing a talk, please contact the secretariat directly. Past events from this series can be found through these links : EQuaLS1, EQuaLS2, EQuaLS3, EQuaLS4, EQuaLS5. |
