Strongly Interacting Quantum Systems out of Equilibrium: Lecture Notes of the Les Houches Summer School: Volume 99, August 2012

Thierry Giamarchi, Andrew J. Millis, Olivier Parcollet, Hubert Saleur, and Leticia F. Cugliandolo


Over the last decade, new experimental tools and theoretical concepts have led to new insights into the collective nonequilibrium behavior of quantum systems. The exquisite control provided by laser trapping and cooling techniques allows us to observe the behavior of condensed Bose and degenerate Fermi gases under nonequi- librium drive or after "quenches" in which a Hamiltonian parameter is suddenly or slowly changed. On the solid state front, high-intensity short-time pulses and fast (femtosecond) probes allow solids to be put into highly excited states and probed before relaxation and dissi ... More

Keywords: out of equilibrium, quantum systems, collective behavior, strongly interacting, Bose gas, Fermi gas
