The traditional mathematical study of semi-classical analysis has developed tremendously in the last thirty years following the introduction of microlocal analysis, that is local analysis in phase space, simultaneously in the space and Fourier transform variables. The purpose of this program is to bring together experts in traditional mathematical semi-classical analysis, in the new mathematics of "quantum chaos," and in physics and theoretical chemistry.
There will be two workshops with different foci: the first oriented towards physics and chemistry, and the second towards mathematics. During the first workshop, we will organize less technical mathematical talks surveying progress and point of view of mathematical semi-classics. The physics/chemistry talks should be of interest to mathematicians who want to get informed of the current state of "applied" semi-classics. The mathematics workshop will have the more usual math conference style but there will be more mathematically oriented physicists/chemists participating as well.
