Algebraic structures and special functions in theoretical physics

Workshop in honour of Professor Luc Vinet

Ghent University  -   26-30 June 2023


With this workshop we celebrate the achievements of Professor Luc Vinet on the occasion of his 70th birthday. The aim of this informal workshop is to bring together researchers and scientists whose work is close to that of Luc. The meeting will be a forum to exchange ideas and to get inspiration for future work.

Luc Vinet is a leading figure in the field of mathematical physics. He is known for his expertise in Algebraic structures, Special functions and orthogonal polynomials, Theory of quantized fields, Quantum information, Quantum mechanics, Symmetry and conservation laws, Integrable systems and Random processes.

Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.
