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].

An introduction to Exciton Energy transfer

In this seminar we discuss the Exciton Energy transfer dynamics in photosyntetic complex aggregates.First, we briefly introduce the physical structure of photosyntetic complex systems.Then we show ho

A glimpse on the role of Grassmann Algebra in Trace Dynamics

In the formulation of an underlying theory for Quantum Mechanics, Adler builds Trace Dynamics by using traces of matrices with entries which are combinations of Grassmann variables.

Girsanov, POVM and frames

To obtain the basic SDE of dynamical collapse models, a change of the probability space is necessary to obtain the correct equation.
