Discrete Schrödinger operators and quasi-periodic dynamical systems are two intimately related fields. One is originated from solid physics and the other is originated from celestial mechanics. Since 1980s, stimulated by the study of almost Mathieu operator and the famous Andre-Aubry conjecture, the connection between these two fields are greatly strengthened. The summit is the series of works of Avila and his collaborators on the spectral properties of Schrödinger operators with analytic potentials.
The goal of this autumn school and workshop is to gather the experts who works on discrete Schrödinger operators and on quasi-periodic dynamical systems to communicate with each other and stimulate new researches on these two fields. Several mini-courses on the basic theories will be arranged, which aim at giving a quick introduction of the basic theories to the students. Various talks will also be provided to report the most recent developments on both fields.
