The workshop Quantum Transport and Excitations from Macro to Nanoscale took place in november 2005, and was intended to boost the collaboration between physicists and mathematicians working on different aspects of quantum transport in quantum mechanics. We blended talks given by mathematicians, theoretical and experimental physicists, as we successfully did in 2004 in Aarhus; a link to that event may be found here.
Topics ranged among nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, spectral theory of interacting fermionic systems, density functional theory, singular perturbation theory, and enhanced excitonic effects in nanoscopic systems. The ultimate goal is a better theoretical understanding of various transport coefficients which can be measured in experiments.
The workshop was mainly financed by the FNU grant Topics in Rigorous Mathematical Physics headed by Arne Jensen . The meeting took place at the Department of Mathematical Sciences , University of Aalborg.
