"Isolated quantum systems in extreme conditions: From heavy-ion collisions to ultracold quantum gases"
Presented by Juergen Berges, University of Heidelberg
Tuesday, November 29, 2016, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510
Isolated quantum systems in extreme conditions can exhibit characteristic common properties despite dramatic differences in key parameters such as temperature, density, field strength and others. The existence of universal regimes, where even quantitative agreements between seemingly disparate physical systems can be observed, drives a remarkable convergence of research activities across traditional lines of specialization. I will describe the concerted research efforts by the recently established Heidelberg Collaborative Research Center ISOQUANT in collaboration with BNL and discuss recent developments concerning the thermalization dynamics of non-Abelian plasmas and ultracold atoms.
