Stochastic mechanics according to M. Nagasawa

Stochastic 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].

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.

Bohmian mechanics: basic facts

In the first part of the talk, the bohmian formulation of quantum mechanics will be briefly reviewed.
