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.

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.

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].
