Idea of the Workshop

Multi-time wave functions, as first suggested by Dirac in 1932, are quantum mechanical wave functions with N spacetime arguments for N particles. This has the great virtue of providing a manifestly covariant representation of the quantum state; one arrives at a relativistic version of the Schrödinger picture. The occurrence of the N time coordinates poses both interesting physical questions as well as challenging mathematical problems. Recently, there has been significant progress in the theory and many interesting new lines of research have been opend up. (See here for a review.)

This workshop aims at bringing together people interested in discussing and learning more about multi-time wave functions, from fields so diverse as mathematical physics, relativistic quantum theory, and foundations of quantum mechanics.
