Dicke model and quantum networks
3-7 May 2012, Mátraháza, Hungary
The workshop is devoted to the discussion of dynamical properties, phase transitions and asymptotics in coupled few-body and many-body quantum optical systems as well as in general quantum networks and quantum walks. Special attention is paid to the ultrastrong coupling regime of cavity QED, being the viable platform of the Dicke model, and to Casimir forces and atom-surface interactions. Around 40 attendants are planned. We would like to devote considerable time to informal discussions.
