Strongly Interacting Quantum Systems Out of Equilibrium (2434)

July 30, 2012 – August 24, 2012

Location: Les Houches, France

Remarkable experimental and theoretical developments in fields ranging from cold atoms, nanoscience and materials physics to the quark- gluon plasma and the early universe have brought the issue of the nonequilibrium physics of strongly correlated quantum systems to the scientific forefront. Basic questions include the principles governing the long time behavior of driven quantal systems, the physics of suddenly quenched systems, the development of appropriate analytical and numerical methods and the consequences of noise and decoherence. Progress has been made on many different fronts, but because the developments have taken place within different sub-fields of science, there has been in practice little overlap despite the many commonalities. The goal of the school is to synthesize the present understanding of nonequilibrium quantum systems, presenting students with a unified picture of the theoretical and experimental state of the art of this rapidly developing yet fundamental field.
