Andres Camilo GRANDA ARANGO (tutor: Prof. Giuseppe Sergioli; co-tutors: Dott. Gustavo Martin Bosyk, Dott. Federico Hernan Holik)

I got my master degree in Physics at the University of Antioquia-Colombia, with a thesis entitled “Asymptotic quantum mechanics for N coupled oscillators”. Since then, I am a PhD scholar at the University of Cagliari. My field of research includes the fundamentals of quantum mechanics, particularly focused on the problem of how is the connection that exists between two apparently different theories: classical mechanics and quantum mechanics. My recent contributions are subject to the creation of a new mathematical formalism, called asymptotic quantum mechanics, based on probability density, asymptotic behaviors and Fourier transforms, which has allowed to recover classical probability densities plus quantum-like corrections in physical systems such as the harmonic oscillator, the hydrogen atom, particles enclosed in flat and spherical wells, free fall and recently in particles with relativistic characteristics. The current goal of my research is to incorporate machine learning. That is, using machine learning techniques, we will focus on the classification problem to try to discern whether certain states that a source has are intertwined or not, whether they exhibit coherence or not, or whether that particular quantum system was able to reach its classical limit.
