Título: Equilibration after quantum quench in a couple of long-range systems
Resumo: In this talk I will first pedagogically review the concept of the equilibration and thermalization in quantum mechanical systems. Then I will describe how the recent experiments forced us to look back to the foundations of non-equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics and investigate generalized Gibbs ensemble (GGE) as the correct description for the equilibration in integrable models. Then I will give you two examples of exactly solvable long-range quantum systems that can be described by GGE.
