The Banff International Research Station will host the "Mathematical Aspects of the Physics with non-self-Adjoint Operators" workshop in Banff from July 10 - 15, 2022.

This workshop aims at facilitating interdisciplinary collaborations across the mathematical analysis and mathematical physics community, with a central role being played by the theory of non-self-adjoint operators. From the point of view of applications, developing modern physical subjects, such as quantum mechanics with non-Hermitian operators, superconductivity, hydrodynamics, metamaterials or optics are covered. High impact mid-term aspirations include the development of rigorous tools allowing understanding of complicated physical phenomena such as cloaking, turbulence and explosive behavior. On the mathematical side, invited participants will be experts in mathematical physics, microlocal, semiclassical, functional and harmonic analysis, as well as dynamical systems and PDEs.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
