# Seminars and Journal Clubs

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. |
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 Bassano Vacchini (University of Milano, INFN-Milano, Italy) ## On the interplay between memory kernels and collisonal modelsIn recent times important progress has been made in the characterization and quantification of the notion of non-Markovianity for quantum dynamical evolutions. |

Friday, February 17, 2017 Stefano Bacchi (PhD student, University of Trieste) ## Roundup of results on Lie groups, Lie algebras and their representationsA list of basic arguments, frequently used and very useful in physics, about Lie groups will be given. |
Friday, October 14, 2016 Luca Curcuraci (PhD student, University of Trieste) ## Bohmian mechanics: basic factsIn the first part of the talk, the bohmian formulation of quantum mechanics will be briefly reviewed. |

Friday, September 16, 2016 Stefano Bacchi (PhD student, University of Trieste) ## Imaginary unit and other non-relativistic Quantum Mechanical adventures of Galilean invarianceThe role of Galilean invariance in non-relativistic quantum mechanics will be discussed. |
Thursday, June 30, 2016 Marko Toros (PhD student, University of Trieste) ## Weak gravitational fieldsWe will discuss some aspects of the General theory of Relativity (GR) for the description of weak gravitational fields. |
