On an irregular basis various Special Seminars take place at the MPQ. The seminars are organized by scientists of our divisions, administration or staff representatives.
Agenda: 14:00h: Gender Equality at the MPQ (Frauke Logermann) - 14:15h: Equal Opportunities in the Max Planck Society (Dr. U. Weber) - 14:30h: The GENERA Project (Nicole Oetke) - 14:45h: Prof. T. Brage - 15:45h: Discussion
In recent years, systems of ultracold atoms in optical lattices have opened new opportunities for exploring time-dependent many-body dynamics.
We examine the response of a system localized by disorder to a time dependent local perturbation which varies smoothly with a characteristic timescale τ.
I will discuss several cases where far out of equilibrium dynamics of many-body systems gives rise to emergent quasistationary states, that can be loosely termed as prethermalized.
Spectral and topological properties of bands, such as the curvature andBerry curvature, have dynamical significance.
