The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, founded in 1918 and opened officially in 1925, is Israel's premier university as well as its leading research institution. The Hebrew University is ranked internationally among the 100 leading universities in the world and first among Israeli universities.
The recognition the Hebrew University has attained confirms its reputation for excellence and its leading role in the scientific community. It stresses excellence and offers a wide array of study opportunities in the humanities, social sciences, exact sciences and medicine. The university encourages multi-disciplinary activities in Israel and overseas and serves as a bridge between academic research and its social and industrial applications.
The Hebrew University has set as its goals the training of public, scientific, educational and professional leadership; the preservation of and research into Jewish, cultural, spiritual and intellectual traditions; and the expansion of the boundaries of knowledge for the benefit of all humanity.
The HUJI group is part of the Fritz Haber Research center
Acting in concert with the TCP ULg group, the HUJI group will provide theoretical support for the experimental projects. The two theory
participants are joined in one work package, WP1, led by R. D. Levine.
It is expected that, as in the past, the laboratory work will pose new issues for the theory and that the theoretical ideas will suggest new architecture and new excitation strategies. This will build on the experience of the group in intramolecular dynamics.
In collaboration with the ULg group the HUJI group will develop the purely theoretical machinery that is necessary to describe electronic processes and with
special reference to dissipation.
It is also expected that the expertise of the HUJI group in the use of information theory on the molecular level will be important for the proposed applications.
