Progress in quantum collective phenomena – from MBL to black holes: November 13 – 17, 2017

Organized by: Alexander Abanov, Sriram Ganeshan, Kristan Jensen, and Vadim Oganesyan

Recent years have witnessed significant progress in understanding the behavior of quantum many-body systems without relying on the age-old assumptions of thermalization or equilibration. Qualitatively new and different real-time dynamics have been found in fields ranging from condensed matter systems to strongly interacting theories with string duals. This workshop will attempt to survey and bridge these exciting advances, bringing together a diverse community of active participants.

This workshop is a part of the program: Hydrodynamics, ergodicity, entanglement and localization in interacting lattice models and field theories: September 11 – December 15, 2017.
