This workshop has opened my eyes on the ongoing interests in atomic and condensed matter physics in solving numerically, real time propagation of the Dirac equation, laser interactions involving the singular Coulomb potential, and gauge-invariant method of solving synthetic gauge problems. Since I am currently developing methods of removing the Coulomb singularity from path-integral-Monte-Carlo simulations, this gives me further impetus for developing Coulomb algorithms for solving real-time propagation problems. This workshop has inspired me to develop splitting spectral methods for solving synthetic gauge problems, which are of increasing importance in many sub-fields of physics. Rarely have I gained so many new ideas in a single workshop and get to know so many others that I can potentially collaborate.

It was a great opportunity for me to do networking. I built connections I would not have had the opportunity to do otherwise. Scientific discussions were stimulating. Congrats on the organization!
