<h3>Dynamics of correlated systems</h3>
We aim to understand how complex states arrising from the interplay of spin, orbital, charge, and lattice degrees of freedom can be controlled out of equilibrium. Particular topics are ultra-fast magnetism, photo-induced Mott metal-insulator transtions, and the dynamics at correlated surfaces and heterostructures. more
Numerical Methods
We develop numerical methods to describe strongly correlated quantum many-particle systems out of equilibrium, in particular within the context of nonequilibrium dynamical mean-field theory. more
Fundamental questions of nonequilibrum dynamics
How does an isolated system reach thermal equilibrium? Contrary to a naive expectation, the path to thermal equilibrium is not straight, but may be delayed by nonthermal critical behavior or dynamical phase transitions. more
