Scientific Center of Excellence for Quantum and Complex Systems, and Representations of Lie Algebras — QuantiXLie
The main goal of the Scientific Center of Excellence for Quantum and Complex Systems, and Representations of Lie Algebras (QuantiXLie) is to strongly reinforce the international visibility of theoretical physics and mathematics research conducted at Croatian universities and scientific institutes, and to enable implementing large competitive projects for international programs. ZCI QuantiXLie aims to create a motivating environment for learning and training of young researchers and provide a stable long-time financial framework for their education and professional development. Members of the QuantiXLie center are internationally recognized researchers who publish their results in leading international scientific journals, which gather significant number of citations and have impact on the scientific community.
