Thursday, May 7, 2015 Roberto Valandro ## An overview of string theory IIIn this second meeting, I will describe the classical string and the spectrum after quantisation and I will review how the string amplitudes are constructed. |
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 Roberto Valandro ## An overview of string theoryIn this first meeting, I will introduce String Theory. I will first present the historical steps that led to the theory. |

Thursday, April 23, 2015 Mauro Schiulaz ## Localization and non equilibration in quantum disordered systems, from 1958 to yesterdayQuantum disordered many-body systems represent the most spectacular known failure of statistical mechanics. |
Friday, April 10, 2015 Andrea Vinante ## Testing the limits of quantum mechanics using micro-magnetomechanical systemsI propose to experimentally investigate micro-magnetomechanical systems made of superconducting particles with size in the micron range, levitated in a magnetic trap. |

Wednesday, March 11, 2015 Lorenzo Patini (Master student of Physics, Univeristy of Trieste) ## Functional DerivativesFunctional derivatives are very useful mathematical tools belonging to functional analysis that apply successfully in developing mathematical theory of quantum field theory and other branches of advan |
Friday, March 6, 2015 Sina Türeli (PhD student of mathematics, SISSA) ## Basic Concepts on Ergodic Theory (Part 2)In this talk (one or two talks depending on how it goes) I will outline basic concepts about ergodic theory, Boltzmann's ergodic hyphothesis and the concept of a deterministic system behaving in |

Wednesday, February 18, 2015 Ricardo Gallego Torrome ## On a class of determinist models for emergent quantum mechanicsIn this talk we discuss some models for emergent quantum mechanics in the line of 't Hooft's approach. |
Friday, February 6, 2015 Matteo Caiaffa ## A sufficient condition for complete positivityThe evolution equations of the statistical operator are (often) subject to the natural request of complete positivity (CP). |

Wednesday, January 21, 2015 Matteo Carlesso ## Non-Markovianity - Semigroup DefinitionA way to construct a dynamics which seems to present memory effects will be presented. A specific example will be presented and studied. |
Friday, December 12, 2014 Sina Türeli (PhD student of mathematics, SISSA) ## Basic Concepts on Ergodic Teory |
