Novel Paradigms in Many-Body Physics from Open Quantum Systems

International Workshop
26 - 29 March 2018

Strongly-correlated open systems often violate fundamental rules typically governing many-body systems in thermal equilibrium. The goal of this workshop is to bring together for the first time scientists from different communities under a common denominator, this being the study of novel paradigms in many-body physics from open quantum systems. This workshop will provide an overview of the emerging concepts, possible theoretical approaches as well as experimental realisations. Apart from invited and contributed talks, the workshop will also feature introductory lectures on selected topics.
