Julian Léonard (Hosted by Seidel) from Harvard University will be presenting this physics colloquium.
Recent years have uncovered many fascinating phenomena in non-equilibrium quantum systems. A paradigmatic example is many-body localization, which describes the inhibition of motion of interacting particles in a disordered potential. A consequence of localization is that these systems do not reach equilibrium and show exotic entanglement dynamics – in contrast to thermal quantum systems, which follow the laws of classical statistical mechanics. Despite intensive research, many questions on many-body localization remain open, for instance, on the thermal-localized transition, and the stability against thermalizing perturbations.
