Quantum swimming

Tuesday 10th April 2007 - 10:00 to 11:00
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Chair: 
P Exner

I shall describe a theory of quantum swimming developed jointly with Boris Gutkin and David Oaknin. The theory has the remarkable feature that swimming in a one dimensional Fermi sea at T=0 is quantized. The theory is closely related to quantum pumping and to adiabatic, time dependent scattering on graphs.
