Frontiers of Quantum Physics

Proceedings of the International Workshop on Quantum Physics

Edited by Ryoichi Kasahara, Hikaru Kawai, Yukinori Nagataki and Fumihiko Sugino

This volume contains invited lectures presented at the international workshop ``Frontiers of Quantum Physics'' held at the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University, Japan, from February 17 to 19, 2005.

Quantum physics is one of the most important areas of modern physics, and it gives an indispensable foundation to a very wide range of fields, including chemistry, biology, engineering and so on. In this international workshop, experts on a broad research area covering from superstring theory, quantum field theory to quantum information theory and quantum theory of DNA gathered together to communicate each other with many stimulating discussions. Also, this workshop was held as the inauguration of the Okayama Institute for Quantum Physics, and was dedicated to the director Prof. Masao Ninomiya in celebration of the 60th anniversary of his birth.

This volume will serve as a source of information on the area not only for experts on each field but also for researchers and students interested in interdisciplinary new subjects.
