Quantum integrable models in and out of equilibrium

11th January 2016 to 15th January 2016

Organisers: Denis Bernard (Paris), Fabian H. L. Essler (Oxford), Giuseppe Mussardo (Trieste), German Sierra (Madrid).

Workshop Theme

Through elegant mathematical solutions of paradigmatic models quantum integrability provides a detailed understanding of fundamental properties of certain quantum states of matter, thus bridging the beauty of mathematics with the richness of the physical world. Cross-fertilization between mathematics and physics has been key to many advances in quantum integrability. Recent years have witnessed tremendous experimental progress in cold atom physics, which has made it possible to realize isolated, low dimensional many-particle quantum systems and study their non-equilibrium dynamics. Quantum integrable models have played an important role in this area. These developments have posed a new set of challenging questions about quantum integrable models.

The main aim of the workshop, which is part of a larger programme on the same subject, is to explore synergies between mathematicians and physicists from leading groups around the world in order develop new methods for the calculation of physical properties of experimental interest. Topics covered by the workshop include experiments on non-equilibrium dynamics in isolated quantum systems, quantum quenches, thermalization, driven quantum systems and dynamical correlation functions.
