Mathematical Challenges of Zero-Range Physics: Rigorous Results and Open Problems
Last few years‘ spectacular advances in the techniques for manipulating ultra-cold atoms made it possible to prepare systems where the effective interaction among particles is extremely strong and has essentially a zero range. This frontier, now accessible experimentally, has since long been investigated at a theoretical level, where various exotic phenomena and unusual behaviors were predicted and now are observed in the lab. This has renewed a flurry of interest from the mathematical point of view, with the aim of providing a rigorous description of such systems in terms of first principles of quantum mechanics. In this workshop a number of recent rigorous results and new major open problems will be discussed by some of the most expert mathematical physicists in the field.
