Dynamics and Quantum Information in Many-body Systems

The development of a new generation of quantum simulators, capable of dynamically and coherently controlling many-body quantum systems, has inspired a plethora of exciting new developments in the study of non-equilibrium, many-body quantum dynamics.

This School will expose students to a range of topics at this interface between quantum computation and many-body quantum dynamics of both closed and open quantum systems. Topics will include the dynamics of open and closed quantum systems, quantum circuits and algorithms, quantum entanglement, and current experiments on quantum simulators.

Location

Getting to the University of Minnesota:

Once you land at the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport (MSP), you have several options you can take to get to the University of Minnesota (UMN).

The Metro Transit Light Rail is the most efficient and cost effective mode of travel. It will cost $2.00 or $2.50 (rush hours) for a one-way ticket. The trains run every 10 - 15 minutes on weekdays and will get you to the UMN campus in about 30 minutes. From MSP, take the Blue Line north to US Bank Station. From there you will transfer to the Green Line and take that east to East Bank Station or Stadium Village Station. Find more information on the Light Rail Transit page of the MSP website

Shuttle service is available from MSP, however the waits can be long and cost may be high at $20.00 - $73.00 depending on whether you share the ride or travel alone. To learn more see the Van and Shuttle service page of the MSP website

Taxi services are available at MSP, including Uber and Lyft. It will take approximately 30 - 60 minutes to get to campus depending on traffic and will cost between $25.00 - $60.00. Visit the Ground Transportation page of the MSP website for more information on app-based ride services. 

Car rental is not recommended. Parking around campus is limited and can be expensive.

Summer School Location:

The workshop will be held in Keller Hall 3-180 on the East Bank of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus.

The building can be accessed via the main doors on Washington Avenue and the side doors on Union Street and the Scholars Walk.

Participant Lodging

Double occupancy dorm rooms will be provided for participants for the duration of the School. The School will run from June 12 - 21, 2023. Plan for a June 11 arrival and a June 22 departure.
