The exploratory workshop "Complex Quantum Systems" will be held at IFISC (Mallorca, Spain) the 14 and 15 of October 2010.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together people working on different topics in quantum physics that share a common frame as complex systems. Growing interest on complexity is reflected by conferences on this subject and devoted journals, with many interdisciplinary connections between physics and biology, sociology, economics, etc... There are only few explicit attempts, however, to consider quantum systems from the perspective of complex phenomena.

Our purpose is to bring together 15-18 participants to present and review their work with emphasis on results related to complex systems such as:
  • Emergent behaviors in many-body and extended systems.
  • Nonlinear dynamical properties including chaos, stochastic resonance, synchronization, localization...
  • Characterization of complexity from an information and statistical point of view.
  • Quantum complex networks.
