Workshop on IDAQP and their Applications

National University of Singapore, Institute for Mathematical Sciences

(March 3-7, 2014)

An international conference dedicated to Professor Takeyuki Hida 

In the past few years the fields of infinite dimensional analysis and quantum probability have undergone increasingly significant developments and have found many new applications, in particular, to classical probability and to different branches of physics. Those fields are rather wide and strongly related in interdisciplinary nature. We like to make a bridge among these interdisciplinary fields in our workshop. In these fields, we mainly focused on quantum information theory and white noise analysis in line with IDAQP. 

It is therefore quite a suitable time to organize an international workshop to have discussions among the researchers in the Asian area.

We aim, through this workshop, at encouraging young mathematicians in Asian countries. We should consider good cooperation with researchers in other fields in order to explore new research directions. They are cordially invited to study with us such new exciting areas in mathematical sciences as quantum information theory and white noise analysis.

International Conference on Quantum Probability and Related Topics (QP35)

Dear Colleagues,

We are going to organize the International Conference on Quantum Probability and Related Topics at Chungbuk National University during August 22 (Fri) – 26 (Tue), 2014
(arrival date: August 21 & departure date: August 27).

This conference combines the following three international conferences:

  •  35th Annual Conference (QP35) of the Association for Quantum Probability and Infinite Dimensional Analysis
  • a satellite conference of the International Congress of Mathematicians 2014 (in Seoul: August 13–21)
  • 9th Jikji-Workshop on Infinite Dimensional Analysis and Quantum Probability

This conference will cover recent developments in quantum probability and infinite dimensional analysis, with applications to mathematical physics, quantum information theory and other related fields. Main topics will include quantum Markov processes and semigroups, quantum stochastic calculus, white noise theory, quantum information theory, free probability, independences, Hilbert modules, non-commutative geometry, product systems, interacting Fock spaces, infinite dimensional Lie algebras, infinite dimensional analysis, quantum field theory and other topics.

We would like to invite you to the international conference QP35. If you are willing to participate in the conference, you are kindly asked to register on the conference website: until February 28, 2014.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by at anytime.
This tentative registration is for our convenience to organizer and so we need only your minimum information (name, position, affiliation, nationality and so on).
The registration fee is 200 Euros and all participants will be asked to pay the registration fee after your arrivals.
The second announcement will be distributed at the beginning of March 2014 with more detailed information, and then abstract submissions will start, and you will be kindly asked to upgrade your information at the conference website.
We look forward to your participation.
Sincerely yours,

Organizing Committee

New Book “Quantum Dynamics for Classical Systems

Quantum Dynamics for Classical Systems: With Applications of the Number Operator

Fabio Bagarello

ISBN: 978-1-118-37068-1

248 pages

December 2012


Introduces number operators with a focus on the relationship between quantum mechanics and social science

Mathematics is increasingly applied to classical problems in finance, biology, economics, and elsewhere. Quantum Dynamics for Classical Systems describes how quantum tools the number operator in particular can be used to create dynamical systems in which the variables are operator-valued functions and whose results explain the presented model. The book presents mathematical results and their applications to concrete systems and discusses the methods used, results obtained, and techniques developed for the proofs of the results.

The central ideas of number operators are illuminated while avoiding excessive technicalities that are unnecessary for understanding and learning the various mathematical applications. The presented dynamical systems address a variety of contexts and offer clear analyses and explanations of concluded results. Additional features in Quantum Dynamics for Classical Systems include:

  • Applications across diverse fields including stock markets and population migration as well as a unique quantum perspective on these classes of models
  • Illustrations of the use of creation and annihilation operators for classical problems
  • Examples of the recent increase in research and literature on the many applications of quantum tools in applied mathematics
  • Clarification on numerous misunderstandings and misnomers while shedding light on new approaches in the field

Quantum Dynamics for Classical Systems is an ideal reference for researchers, professionals, and academics in applied mathematics, economics, physics, biology, and sociology. The book is also excellent for courses in dynamical systems, quantum mechanics, and mathematical models

Mathematics & Statistics Mathematics & Statistics
Salary: Professorial (minimum £60,266) Salary:   £32,590 to £45,053
Closing Date:   Sunday 23 March 2014 Closing Date:   Sunday 23 March 2014
Interview Date:   To be confirmed Interview Date:   To be confirmed

This is a new post commencing on 1 September 2014, or as soon as possible thereafter. Reflecting the Department's desire to grow research in probability theory, it is one of two new positions; we are also seeking a Lecturer in Probability. This is part of an on-going expansion of the Department, which has seen a significant rise in the numbers of undergraduates, postgraduates and staff in the last five years. In the past two years alone the Department has made 10 new academic appointments; we are currently seeking a total of 8 further positions.

The Department currently comprises 38 academic staff, 12 research associates and over 50 research students. The Pure Mathematics section has a well-established Analysis group with a strong international reputation; it has recently developed an Algebra and Geometry group of similar strength. At Lancaster we have one of the largest and strongest statistics research groups in the UK, with research spanning Statistical Modelling and Statistical Methods for Medicine and the Social Sciences.   

Research in probability theory at Lancaster spans both the Pure Mathematics and Statistics sections. Current areas of research include stochastic processes, geometric probability, stochastic analysis, quantum probability, random matrices, stochastic epidemic models and theoretical MCMC. Related research interests include mathematical physics, statistical mechanics, free probability, quantum information, genetics, financial mathematics and energy. There is also an Operations Research group in the Management School working in applied probability. In collaboration with the OR group, the Department hosts STOR-i, an EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training.

We are seeking to appoint a Chair with a strong research output in any area of probability, who will provide a lead in developing a probability research group. We particularly welcome applicants with research interests in stochastic processes and geometric probability. We are looking for a proven record of attracting research funding and supervision of research students. The Chair will be expected to undertake senior academic management roles, and to contribute to all aspects of undergraduate teaching.

 Informal enquiries can be made to: Dr David Towers (Head of Department)

General information about the Department can be found at: We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
