Thursday 19th April: STP Seminar – “Non-equilibrium Dynamics in Isolated Quantum Systems”

Title: Non-equilibrium Dynamics in Isolated Quantum Systems Speaker: Masud Haque (NUI Maynooth) Abstract: Quantum many-body physics has traditionally focused on equilibrium properties and low-energy excitations. However, in recent years, motivated by novel experimental possibilities, the study of quantum matter far from… Read More
