Quantum Many-Body Physics in the presence of an environment

Venue: La Maison Internationale de la Recherche (MIR), Neuville-sur-Oise

International conference coordinated by Andrea De Luca, CY LPTM

In recent years, the study of many-body quantum physics has expanded beyond the realm of systems at thermodynamic equilibrium. Motivated by the increasing ability of engineering synthetic quantum matter, where the experimental platform and its dynamics can be designed with high precision and fidelity (we think for example at cold atoms or at arrays of non-linear photonic resonators), the scientific community has developed a growing interest in the non-equilibrium effects that emerge in complex systems of interacting quantum particles. In this workshop we want to focus on quantum systems interacting with an environment, a very general situation that can model many experimental cases, such as the leakage of photons out of an optical cavity, but also the interaction of atoms with a time-dependent electro-magnetic field, atom losses in trapped cold atoms and many others. A comprehensive understanding of these setups and the development of general theoretical tools to describe them stand at the moment as priority research programs. The goal of this workshop is to bring together scientists working on the theoretical and experimental aspects of many-body systems coupled to an environment. We want to create a meeting point for scientists belonging to very different communities and to have a moment of exchange and mutual interaction in order to foster synergies between and within the theoretical and experimental communities working on the field. We will bring to the CY Advanced Studies a selected pool of experts from French and international scientific communities.
