# Seminars and Journal Clubs

Friday, April 10, 2015 Andrea Vinante ## Testing the limits of quantum mechanics using micro-magnetomechanical systemsI propose to experimentally investigate micro-magnetomechanical systems made of superconducting particles with size in the micron range, levitated in a magnetic trap. |
Wednesday, March 11, 2015 Lorenzo Patini (Master student of Physics, Univeristy of Trieste) ## Functional DerivativesFunctional 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 |

Friday, March 6, 2015 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 |
Wednesday, February 18, 2015 Ricardo Gallego Torrome ## On a class of determinist models for emergent quantum mechanicsIn this talk we discuss some models for emergent quantum mechanics in the line of 't Hooft's approach. |

Friday, February 6, 2015 Matteo Caiaffa ## A sufficient condition for complete positivityThe evolution equations of the statistical operator are (often) subject to the natural request of complete positivity (CP). |
Wednesday, January 21, 2015 Matteo Carlesso ## Non-Markovianity - Semigroup DefinitionA way to construct a dynamics which seems to present memory effects will be presented. A specific example will be presented and studied. |

Friday, December 12, 2014 Sina Türeli (PhD student of mathematics, SISSA) ## Basic Concepts on Ergodic Teory |
Friday, November 28, 2014 Mohammad Bahrami ## Gisin's theorem and no-faster-than-light signalingOne way to study possible theories beyond standard quantum theory is to modify Schrodinger equation by adding new terms. |

Friday, November 7, 2014 André Großardt ## Faster than light I: Axiomatic foundations of special relativity, tachyons, and causal paradoxesThis talk is supposed to be the first in a series, discussing the problem of faster-than-light signalling appearing in realistic quantum theories as a consequence of quantum non-locality.
We review h |
Thursday, October 30, 2014 Sandro Donadi ## The conditional wave function and its dynamicsAt the end of the previous seminar we quickly introduced the concept of conditional wave function. |
