The instances where an isolated system fails to reach thermal equilibrium raise interesting fundamental open questions. It requires new conceptual and theoretical frameworks, and novel experimental probes to describe and predict phenomena involving many quantum particles. The satellite meeting will aim to define the relevant approaches for describing transitions from thermal to non-ergodic phases of matter and their possible implications.
The programme, talk abstracts and biographies of the speakers and organisers is available below. Recorded audio of the presentations are also available below.
Prior to this meeting there was a related discussion meeting 'Breakdown of ergodicity in quantum systems: from solids to synthetic matter' held at the Royal Society, London on 6-7 February 2017.
