报告题目：Nonequilibrium dynamics of isolated many-body quantum systems
报 告人：Prof.LF Santos, Physics Department, Yeshiva University，USA
Due to their high level of control and isolation, new experiments with cold atoms and ion traps can study the coherent evolution of many-body quantum systems for long times. This has triggered significant interest in nonequilibrium quantum dynamics and the viability of thermalization despite isolation. In our studies, we have been able to describe numerically and analytically the entire evolution of some physical quantities, from the moment the many-body quantum system is taken far from equilibrium to the moment it reaches a new equilibrium. We unveil different behaviors at different time scales and show how information about the system spectrum can be extracted by the sole analysis of its time evolution. From the dynamics, we can also anticipate whether the system will or not reach thermal equilibrium.
