Equilibration and Thermalization in Quantum Systems

Conference and Workshop - Stellenbosch, South Africa

Recent progress in manipulating cold atoms and ions has brought the study of non-equilibrium behavior of isolated quantum systems into the focus of research. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from a variety of fields related to this topic, including quantum information, statistical physics, mathematical physics, cold atoms and condensed matter physics. See further below for a more detailed description of topics covered by this workshop.

A (1+1)-week workshop. During the first week there will be 6 talks of 45min each per day, with an extended lunch break of 3 hours in between, giving ample opportunities for discussions. All participants are expected to stay at least for the first week of the workshop. The second week is intended for a smaller group of people. Offices will be available for the participants in the second week and, apart from 1 or 2 talks per day, the rest of the time will be available for discussions, collaborations, or individual work as participants see fit.
