Snapshots of quantum dynamics: constraints, integrability and hidden orders

  • The Science Center of The CUNY Graduate Center (Rm 4102) 365 5th Ave. New York, NY 10016 USA (map)

This workshop is part of a continuing series of informal annual meetings on nonequilibrium quantum dynamics. Topics to be covered fall in four broad categories: (1) new concepts such as many-body quantum scars, fractons, and more generally the role constraints play in unconventional many-body quantum dynamics; (2) recent developments in integrable systems, particularly the understanding of diffusion and the dynamics of quantum information; (3) unifying the emerging understanding of dynamics in isolated quantum systems with what is known about the dynamics of dissipative systems; and (4) experimental developments in quantum gas microscopes and related settings that allow one to take single snapshots of many-body systems, and therefore enable one to probe new classes of theoretical objects, such as non-local order parameters and multipoint correlators.
