Equilibrium and Transport Properties of Quantum Many-Body Systems
This thesis is a study of equilibrium and dynamical properties of macroscopic quantum many-body problems. An important part of the manuscript concerns the study of heat and charge transport properties of fermions on the ...
Accuracy of Classical Conductivity Theory at Atomic Scales for Free Fermions in Disordered Media
The growing need for smaller electronic components has recently sparked the interest in the breakdown of the classical conductivity theory near the atomic scale, at which quantum effects should dominate. In 2012, experimental ...
The Discreteness-driven Relaxation of Collisionless Gravitating Systems: Entropy Evolution in External Potentials, N-dependence, and the Role of Chaos
We investigate the old problem of the fast relaxation of collisionless N-body systems that are collapsing or perturbed, emphasizing the importance of (noncollisional) discreteness effects. We integrate orbit ensembles in ...
