Talks are held in the Herbert Walther Lecture Hall at MPQ and can additionally be attended online. Currently face masks are not mandatory at MPQ. It is recommended, however, to wear a mask during the Colloquium talk. Audiences not affiliated with the MPQ are also welcome.

Details on how to participate online are distributed via the mailing lists [wiss-mpq] and [Mpq-colloquium-stream]. To receive this information, please register using the attached link.

Scientific organization of the talks:  Dr. Stephan Dürr and Dr. Thomas Udem

Search as (quantum) selforganized process (Prof. Giovanna Morigi)

Efficient retrieval of information is a core operation in the world wide web, it is essential for the sustenance of living organisms. Search dynamics, moreover, is a paradigm for optimization algorithms: Searches permeate our everyday life. Inspired by the food search dynamics of a living organism, the Physarum polycephalum, we analyse the role of noise in finding the optimal path on a graph with multiple constraints and where the weight of the edges connecting the nodes is a dynamic variable.

(Towards) quantum gases of ultracold polar molecules (Prof. Silke Ospelkaus)

In recent years, tremendous progress in the preparation and control of ultracold molecular gases in the quantum regime has been achieved and has opened exciting new research opportunities. Molecules rotate and oscillate and therefore offer many more quantum degrees of freedom than their atomic counterparts. Polar molecules interact via strong and long-range anisotropic interactions.
