07:00 - 09:00 Breakfast (Vistas Dining Room)
09:00 - 10:00 Anatoli Polkovnikov: Quantum Chaos and Thermalization Through Eigenstates
In this talk I will review basic notions of classical and quantum chaos in single particle systems and in particular the relation of quantum chaos and the random matrix theory (RMT). Then I will discuss the eigenstate thermalization hypothesis (ETH), introduced by J. Deutsch and M. Srednicki, as a natural extension of RMT. I will show how ETH can be used to derive familiar thermodynamic relations including fluctuation theorems and in some cases extend them beyond linear response. I will also briefly discuss some examples where ETH is violated: integrable systems, MBL systems and periodically driven Floquet systems.
