Giovanni Perosa (University of Trieste, Italy)

Partial differential equation and heat conduction

The aim of this seminar is to describe the problem affecting heat transfer equation in a relativistic frame and the efforts to solve it.

Mauro Paternostro (Queen's University Belfast, U.K.)

When Maxwell deamon is your best friend: an invitation to study stochastic thermodynamics of quantum processes

Thermodynamics is an inherently macroscopic theory that describes energy-exchange processes between a system and its environment, and the extraction of work from a driven system.

Bassano Vacchini (University of Milano, INFN-Milano, Italy)

On the interplay between memory kernels and collisonal models

In recent times important progress has been made in the characterization and quantification of the notion of non-Markovianity for quantum dynamical evolutions.

Stefano Bacchi (PhD student, University of Trieste)

Roundup of results on Lie groups, Lie algebras and their representations

A list of basic arguments, frequently used and very useful in physics, about Lie groups will be given.

Sumanta Chakraborty (Inter University for Astronomy and Astrophysics, India)

Information retrieval from black holes

It is generally believed that, when matter collapses to form a black hole, the complete information about the initial state of the matter cannot be retrieved by future asymptotic observers, through l

Prospects to use levitated optomechanics to test quantum mechanics and gravity

We will discuss ideas to experimentally test collapse models [1] by both matter-wave interferometry [2] and non-interferometric methods [3].

Luca Ferialdi

General Non-Markovian Structure of Gaussian Master and Stochastic Schrödinger Equations

General open quantum systems display memory features, their master equations are non-Markovian.
