Non-Hermitian Degeneracies: new directions of research and applications

22-24 April, 2012

Supported by the Institute of Theoretical Chemistry at the Technion, & Lewiner Institute of Theoretical Physics Technion, Haifa, Israel

Non-Hermitian Degeneracies conf

Phenomena associated with the continuum states of open quantum Hermitian Hamiltonian system are often compactly described by effective non-Hermitian Hamiltonians. Recent studies revealed interesting effects associated with such time dependent non-Hermitian Hamiltonians in the vicinity of non-Hermitian degeneracies (also known as "branch points" or "exceptional points"). The goal of the workshop is to look for new effects (which are not possible in closed Hermitian systems) and to further explore the recently discovered effects.
