How to get to CFEL:
The study of non-equilibrium phenomena in many-body systems has become a very active field of research, with applications to laser-induced dynamics in complex solids and cold atom systems (“quantum simulators”), as well as transport in quantum dots and nanostructures. The course will cover the basic theoretical concepts in this field (using the language of path integrals and field theoretical techniques), including non-equilibrium statistical physics, classical stochastic systems (Langevin Equation, Fokker-Planck equation), the Keldysh formalism, and quantum transport.
