The topics of the meetings are the simulation, physical properties and deeper understanding of novel photonic devices. The audience consists of physicists, mathematicians and electrical engineers. Our intent is to have an active exchange of results, ideas and methods between these different scientific fields from fundamental to applied research.
The 14th AMPD will take place at 17-18 February 2022.
In 2021, the meeting was shifted and the audience was pointed to the Second Workshop on Theoretical and Numerical Tools for Nanophotonics (TNTN2021) to be held at Bordeaux, France. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, TNTN2021 has been canceled.
In 2020, TNTN2020 took place at Zuse Institute Berlin, comprising both, the XXIX International Workshop on Optical Wave and Waveguide Theory and Numerical Modelling (OWTNM), and the 13th AMPD.
Up-to-date information are also distributed via our mailing list.

“ All the mathematical sciences are founded on relations between physical laws and laws of numbers, so that the aim of exact science is to reduce the problems of nature to the determination of quantities by operations with numbers. ”
