Luca Curcuraci (Ph.D. student, University of Trieste)

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].

Matteo Carlesso (Ph.D. student, University of Trieste)

Adjoint master equation for Quantum Brownian Motion

Quantum brownian motion is the paradigm of an open quantum system and it finds applications in several physical contexts.

Tommaso Guaita (University of Milano, Italy)

Dynamical reduction models as a solution to the quantum measurement problem

Dynamical reduction models have been proposed as a possible solution to the well known measurement problem in quantum mechanics.

Giovanni Perosa (University of Trieste, Italy)

Partial differential equation and heat conduction

The aim of this seminar is to describe the problem affecting heat transfer equation in a relativistic frame and the efforts to solve it.

Mauro Paternostro (Queen's University Belfast, U.K.)

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.

Bassano Vacchini (University of Milano, INFN-Milano, Italy)

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.

Stefano Bacchi (PhD student, University of Trieste)

Roundup of results on Lie groups, Lie algebras and their representations

A list of basic arguments, frequently used and very useful in physics, about Lie groups will be given.

Luca Curcuraci (PhD student, University of Trieste)

Bohmian mechanics: basic facts

In 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 invariance

The role of Galilean invariance in non-relativistic quantum mechanics will be discussed.

Marko Toros (PhD student, University of Trieste)

Weak gravitational fields

We will discuss some aspects of the General theory of Relativity (GR) for the description of weak gravitational fields.
