[9/29-30] The Second Tohoku University - RIKEN Joint Workshop: "Math Meets Quantum Materials"


The second Tohoku University - RIKEN joint workshop, entitled “Math Meets Quantum Materials,” takes place from September 29 - 30.

Tohoku University and RIKEN have been holding a series of joint workshops based on the agreement on collaboration and cooperation signed in 2019.

The second workshop focuses on collaboration in the fields of mathematical sciences and quantum materials; two fields that have significantly merged in recent years.

Like topological materials, which are discovered using the mathematical concept of topology, materials science is currently evolving from the conventional way of finding materials. Instead of developing materials with good properties through numerous experiments, materials science is increasingly finding materials using mathematical predictions.

This workshop will discuss these latests developments and related topics.
