Nuclear Physics Institute, Academy of Sciences, and

Doppler Institute for Mathematical Physics

will hold on June 10-14, 2002 in Prague

a workshop under the title


from Mathematics to Mesoscopics

The main topic to be discussed are quantum particles which are forced to live at in specific regions, such as a manifold of a lower dimension or a graph, or in the vicinity of such regions; the focus is on relations between the geometry and the spectral and scattering properties, as well as the influence of external fields, internal degrees of freedom, etc. Also mentioned will be various classical systems which exhibit a similar behaviour. These questions will be addressed by different methods ranging from mathematically rigorous models to those having a direct relation to experiments.

    Practical information:

    How to get there: "Masarykova Kolej" is easily accessible by public transport being situated a 5 minutes walk from "Dejvicka", a terminal station of the metro line A. Follow the streetcar route on Evropska street, Thakurova is a perpendicular to it and "Masarykova Kolej" is a large building at the corner of the two streets.

    Coming by train: Each of Prague major railway stations has a metro station. You have to change to the line A and follow to the station "Dejvicka". It requires at most 20 minutes and is much cheaper than a taxi; tickets for 12 crowns are available in orange vending machines at the entrance.

    Coming by plane: If you opt for a taxi, choose a registered one or an airport van. An easy way to get to "Masarykova Kolej" is to take bus 119 from the stop in from of the arrival building of the airport. In about 25 minutes, it takes you to metro station "Dejvicka".
