» Superoscillations - Theoretical Aspects and Applications Symposium

View of Grand Hotel San Michele

Symposium Information

Superoscillations were identified independently by Sir Michael Berry and Yakir Aharonov in very different contexts, but in the last several years the communities of mathematicians and physicists have taken increased interest in this phenomenon, both because of its interesting mathematical characteristics, and because of its many potential applications. This symposium is intended not only to present the state of the art on (theoretical and applied) research on superoscillations, but also to look at the future of this field.

The symposium will open the morning of June 15th, with a keynote address presented by Yakir Aharonov, and the rest of the day dedicated mostly to the mathematical theory of superoscillations. On June 16th, we will open with a keynote address presented by Sir Michael Berry, followed by presentations mostly dedicated to the applications of superoscillations.

The symposium will end the evening of the 16th, with a brainstorming session on the future of superoscillation theory.
