Ergodicity Breaking in Many Body Systems
The conference focuses on the lack of ergodicity observed in many physical systems, be they classical or quantum. In the recent years, evidence has indeed progressively accumulated that the evolution of certain systems may remain localized within restricted areas of the phase space, thereby giving rise to nontrivial phenomena.
Ergodicity breaking need not to extend to infinite time scales for it being physically relevant: it can manifest itself as metastable or quasi-stationary states. Glasses represent the most famous setup where lack of ergodicity has been recognized to be a key element for the understanding of physical properties. Non-ergodic behavior may, however, be also due to dynamical effects which give rise to an effectively small coupling. Quantum many-body localization is a further, much related, phenomenon, which can be analysed by studying the Bose-Hubbard model and the Gross-Pitaevsky equation.
The goal of this workshop is twofold: (I) bring together researchers working with many-body, deterministic and stochastic, systems to stimulate a cross-fertilization through an exchange of tools and approaches; (II) increase the awareness among the new generations of scientists of the different manifestations of the problem. The conference is designed to be interdisciplinary, as we bring together leading experts, both experimentalists and theorists.
Main topics to be discussed:
- Quantum many-body localization.
