Event Details

In this talk, I will discuss hydrodynamic approaches to integrable many-body quantum systems. Such quantum integrable systems possess an extensive number of local conserved quantities that prevent them from thermalizing like generic ergodic systems and endow them with unusual transport properties. These conservation laws lead to complex non-equilibrium states that go beyond a traditional description in terms of statistical mechanics. I will discuss how recently proposed hydrodynamic descriptions of nearly-integrable systems also offer a promising window into the crossover between quantum integrability and ergodicity.
