Dear colleagues,

please find below the annoucement of a workshop on "Determinantal and permanental point processes, quantum physics and signal processing", to be held in Lyon (France) from May 30 to June 10, 2022.

Since their introduction by Odile Macchi in 1975 to model the spatial distribution of fermions and bosons in optical beams, determinantal and permanental point processes have received a lot of attention due to their connections with random matrices, statistical physics and more recently signal processing and machine learning, where the repulsive properties of DPP allow for instance to improve the efficiency of Monte Carlo methods. Quantum physics and signal processing are also deeply related through time-frequency analysis, which provides tools to understand complex optical systems.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together physicists, mathematicians and specialists of signal processing interested in these topics, and to establish a modern dictionary allowing for cross-fertilization between the different disciplines. It is the continuation of a previous workshop held in Lille in 2019.

The event is held over two weeks, the first being devoted to introductory mini-courses, and the second to research talks. It is part of the semester "PhysMathLyon" funded by the LabEx Milyon.

Mini-courses (first week) :
- Mylène Maïda : Introduction to determinantal point processes
- Benjamin Roussel : Introduction to quantum optics of fermions and bosons
- Patrick Flandrin : Introduction to time-frequency analysis
- Subhro Ghosh : DPP and zeroes of Gaussian analytic functions
- Günther Koliander : Point processes in time-frequency analysis
- Gaultier Lambert : Universality for free fermions
- Satya Majumdar : Noninteracting trapped fermions as a DPP: application to cold atoms
- Fabio Sciarrino* : From quantum optics to quantum information processing

Research talks (second week) : Luis Daniel Abreu*, Mathias Albert, Alexander Bufetov, Subhro Ghosh, Antti Haimi, Adrien Kassel, Pierre Le Doussal, Meixia Lin, Grigori Olshanski, Barbara Pascal, Arnaud Poinas, José Luis Romero*, Simona Rota-Nodari, Nicolas Rougerie, Christophe Salomon, Jean-Marie Stéphan.
(*: to be confirmed)

We are planning the workshop as a mainly physical, in-person, event. Registration is free but mandatory :

If the speakers allow it, we also plan to capture the talks and stream them online. We do not guarantee that it will be possible to ask questions remotely. Please also register via the above link if you would like to follow the talks online.

Please do not hesitate to forward this announcement to potentially interested colleagues. Please also accept our apologies if you receive this message more than once.
Best regards,

The organizing committee : Rémi Bardenet, Jérémie Bouttier, Pascal Degiovanni, Patrick Flandrin, Adrien Hardy, Mylène Maïda, Grégory Schehr.
