Scope

Over the past decade, quantum chaos in many-body systems has been a dynamic and thriving field, driven by significant advances in the control and engineering of complex quantum systems. In this context, the interplay of chaotic dynamics and environmental-induced dissipation in many-body settings has been receiving increasing attention.  

Here, the aim is to understand the universal properties of quantum chaos when the system-environment coupling cannot be ignored. Aspects of this research are of immediate interest to various areas of physics, quantum information and quantum engineering, and, in particular, to modeling recently available intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) quantum processors.  

The aim of this school is to provide students with a broad view of the field of dissipative quantum many-body chaos. At the same time, we aim to address the technicalities needed to understand some of the most recent developments.  

We focus mostly on PhD students, but Master students and young postdoc will be also considered

 


Themes and preliminary program schedule

Lectures shall cover the following topics:      
● Quantum chaos, diagnosis and signatures      
● Characterization methods of open quantum systems and processes (tomography)      
● Noisy intermediate scale quantum (NISQ) device characterization      
● Random-matrix methods for dissipative quantum dynamics      
● Transport and correlation spreading in quantum circuit models      
● Dynamics of monitored systems and measurement-induced criticality
