Spectral Statistics and High-Energy Eigenstates

August 25 - September 2, 2001

Centre de recherches mathématiques
Université de Montréal


John Toth
(McGill) and Dmitry Jakobson (McGill)


The idea of the workshop is to bring together mathematicians and physicists working on the issues related to asymptotic eigenstate properties, especially as they relate to classical limits and chaos. The issues to be considered include the asymptotic behavior of individual eigenstates; the role of periodic orbits and scars; connections between random matrix theory and eigenvalue statistics, theory of L-functions, RH problems and integrable systems.

There will be four sequences of introductory/survey lectures in the mornings, suitable for graduate students, by P. Bleher (Indiana University - Purdue University), Zeev Rudnick (Tel Aviv), Alejandro Uribe (Michigan) and Steve Zelditch (John Hopkins). In addition, there will be about 20 scheduled talks in the afternoons.

Some support for graduate students will be available.
