# Seminars and Journal Clubs

Thursday, April 12, 2018 José Luis Gaona Reyes ## Black Hole Information Loss Paradox and Collapse Models In the first part of the talk, the basic notions of the black hole information loss paradox are presented, following [1]. Then, the proposal of S. K. Modak and D. Sudarsky [2] is described. |
Tuesday, March 27, 2018 Lorenzo Asprea, PhD student, University of Trieste ## Gravitational DecoherenceOne of the greatest predictions of general relativity is the existence of gravitational waves (GWs), which can be thought of as small perturbations of the metric propagating through spacetime at the |

Tuesday, March 20, 2018 Giulio Gasbarri, Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Trieste ## On-Chip Quantum Interference of a Superconducting MicrosphereWe propose and analyze an all-magnetic scheme to perform a Young’s double slit experiment with a micron-sized superconducting sphere of mass > ~ 10^13 amu. |
Thursday, February 8, 2018 Antoine Tilloy (Post Doctoral Researcher Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) ## Interacting quantum field theories as relativistic statistical field theories of local beables I will present a generic method to construct collapse models with good symmetry properties starting from interacting quantum field theories. |

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 Antoine Tilloy (Post Doctoral Researcher Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) ## Ghirardi Rimini Weber model with massive flashesHuge amounts of efforts are currently invested in trying to quantize gravity. But are we really sure that gravity should be quantum at the fundamental level? |
Tuesday, August 1, 2017 Luca Curcuraci (Ph.D. student, University of Trieste) ## Stochastic mechanics according to M. NagasawaStochastic mechanics is a attempt to formulate quantum mechanics starting from the theory of stochastic process. The most famous formulation is due to E. Nelson [1]. |

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 Matteo Carlesso (Ph.D. student, University of Trieste) ## Adjoint master equation for Quantum Brownian MotionQuantum brownian motion is the paradigm of an open quantum system and it finds applications in several physical contexts. |
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 Tommaso Guaita (University of Milano, Italy) ## Dynamical reduction models as a solution to the quantum measurement problemDynamical reduction models have been proposed as a possible solution to the well known measurement problem in quantum mechanics. |

Friday, May 5, 2017 Giovanni Perosa (University of Trieste, Italy) ## Partial differential equation and heat conductionThe aim of this seminar is to describe the problem affecting heat transfer equation in a relativistic frame and the efforts to solve it. |
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 Mauro Paternostro (Queen's University Belfast, U.K.) ## When Maxwell deamon is your best friend: an invitation to study stochastic thermodynamics of quantum processesThermodynamics 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. |
