Royal Society meeting on Non-Ergodic Dynamics

last modified Feb 05, 2017 10:08 AM
We are organising a Royal Society meeting on "Breakdown of ergodicity in quantum systems: from solids to synthetic matter"

Ergodic systems lie at the heart of statistical physics since they reach thermal equilibrium and 'forget' their initial conditions, thereby allowing for coarse-grained classical descriptions. Recently, non-ergodic quantum many-body systems, which fail to thermalise and decohere completely, came into focus. This interdisciplinary meeting will address their fundamental challenges and experimental realisations, including many-body localisation and other novel, non-classical long-time behaviour.

See for the main meeting, "Breakdown of ergodicity in quantum systems: from solids to synthetic matter":
