MCTDH mini-workshop

We are happy to announce the first Heidelberg Workshop on the MCTDH Method . The lectures will be held on July 24/25 2001 in the IWH (Internationales Wissenschaftsforum Heidelberg) Hauptstrasse 242, 69117 Heidelberg. For information on the IWH see IWH. A map is also available. Those who are interested and need more information should send me an e-mail

Monday, July 23rd
Participants who arrive on Monday in Heidelberg may wish to meet (after 19:00, say) at an restaurant in the old city of Heidelberg.
We shall meet at "China restaurant Asia", Haspelgasse 2. The restaurant is easy to find as it is located very close to the entrance of the old bridge (Karl-Theodor Brücke). From there walk about 60 meter, direction south-west.
