Out of equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics
OUT OF EQUILIBRIUM QUANTUM STATISTICAL MECHANICS
Out of equilibrium quantum statistical mechanicsQuantum statistical mechanics describes maximum entropy states in equilibrium ensembles, but the question how quantum systems evolving under unitary dynamics relax to equilibrium remains to a large extent open. We will review recent progress in understanding the emergence of statistical mechanics from microscopic quantum dynamics. After a general introduction to different approaches to out of equilibrium quantum physics, we will focus on two types of problems: quantum quenches and quantum transport in one dimensional lattice systems. Quantum quenches are abrupt changes of dynamical parameters in a quantum system. We will show that a quantum quench in the transverse field Ising model leads to local relaxation to a nonthermal statistical ensemble. Next we will study the problem of quantum transport when a system that is initially split in two halves at different temperature, is joined and evolves under a common Hamiltonian. We will show that in quantum spin chains the system approaches a nonequilibrium steady state.  2  DecJan
