Lecturer Sancho stressed that this theory has been the most successful and applied to all quantum theories capable of describing the energy and structure of matter. According to him, the theory is among the most cited fields of research of all time, according to the journal Nature, with more than 250,000 citations accumulated in scientific articles. These biennial conferences also serve to increase knowledge on the subject and the training of attendees.
