OVERVIEW 

 

Understanding the transport properties of unconventional materials is one of the major challenges in quantum many-body physics. Of particular interest in this context are lowdimensional systems, which exhibit strong quantum effects in transport. Well-known examples are the Kondo effect, charge conductance quantization in quantum Hall systems, or spin conductance quantization in quantum spin Hall systems. While transport in three-dimensional conductors can in most cases be successfully described by Fermi liquid theory, systems that are effectively one- or two-dimensional in nature often exhibit non-Fermi liquid behavior, the description of which requires radically new theoretical approaches.

 

The last few years have witnessed significant progress both in theory and experiments related to transport in strongly correlated systems. Among the breakthroughs is the development of hydrodynamic theories for transport in integrable systems or in holographic quantum matter without quasiparticles. On the experimental side, new systems such as cold atomic gases, exciton-polariton condensates and optomechanical systems offer new platforms beyond condensed matter. This workshop intends to bring together theorists and experimentalists working on various aspects of transport in strongly correlated systems.

 

The workshop will focus on the following topics:

 

  • Spin chains and quantum wires;
  • Quantum transport in cold atomic gases;
  • Open quantum systems and non-equilibrium steady states;
  • Quantum kinetic equations;
  • Holography and hydrodynamics.
