Mr. Farzad Kianvash (Sharif Univeristy of Technology Tehran, Iran, Azadi Ave, Iran)

Cosmological bounds on CSL parameters

Collapse models are phenomenological models which are introduced in order to explain the mechanism of the wave function collapse.

Mr. Jahngir Nobakht (Sharif Univeristy of Technology Tehran, Iran, Azadi Ave, Iran)

Dissipative CSL Model

Continuous Spontaneous Localization (CSL) is the most refined collapse model which describes the localization of spatial wavefunction of macroscopic objects with the destruction of spatial quantum sup

Experimental Tests of Macroscopic Quantum Superposition

New technological developments allow to explore the quantum properties of very complex systems, bringing the question of whether also macroscopic systems share such features, within experimental reach

Roberto Valandro

An overview of string theory II

In this second meeting, I will describe the classical string and the spectrum after quantisation and I will review how the string amplitudes are constructed.

Roberto Valandro

An overview of string theory

In this first meeting, I will introduce String Theory. I will first present the historical steps that led to the theory.

Localization and non equilibration in quantum disordered systems, from 1958 to yesterday

Quantum disordered many-body systems represent the most spectacular known failure of statistical mechanics.

Testing the limits of quantum mechanics using micro-magnetomechanical systems

I propose to experimentally investigate micro-magnetomechanical systems made of superconducting particles with size in the micron range, levitated in a magnetic trap.

Lorenzo Patini (Master student of Physics, Univeristy of Trieste)

Functional Derivatives

Functional derivatives are very useful mathematical tools belonging to functional analysis that apply successfully in developing mathematical theory of quantum field theory and other branches of advan

Sina Türeli (PhD student of mathematics, SISSA)

Basic Concepts on Ergodic Theory (Part 2)

In this talk (one or two talks depending on how it goes) I will outline basic concepts about ergodic theory, Boltzmann's ergodic hyphothesis and the concept of a deterministic system behaving in

On a class of determinist models for emergent quantum mechanics

In this talk we discuss some models for emergent quantum mechanics in the line of 't Hooft's approach.
