Colloquium

Topic:

Antrittsvorlesung: Calculating the properties of extremely hot end dense matter

Date:

Time:

Place:

Abstract:

Exploring the properties and phase structure of strong interaction matter from first principles is an extremely active and numerically intense field of research. The last 15 years have seen tremendous progress in the quality of lattice regularized Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) calculations. It is now possible to perform QCD calculations with physical quark masses and reliable continuum extrapolations for bulk thermodynamic quantities at nonzero temperatures. A small baryon number density can be introduced by a Taylor expansion approach. In this accessible region the QCD phase diagram can now be explored in detail, with some applications to heavy ion physics and cosmology. What remains to be an important and unsolved issue are calculations at large baryon number densities. I will review recent lattice QCD results on bulk thermodynamics at nonzero temperature and small baryon number densities, which includes the equation of state as well as recent results on the density dependence of the QCD transition temperature. I will further discuss how thermal fluctuations of baryon number, electric charge and strangeness can be used to connect QCD calculations with heavy ion experiments conducted at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in Brookhaven. Finally, I will sketch some strategies for QCD calculations that might help to go beyond a Taylor expansion and overcome the infamous sign problem that is faced in numerical QCD calculations.

Colloquium Mathematical Physics

Topic:

Upper and lower Lipschitz bounds for the perturbation of edges of the essential spectrum

Date:

Time:

Place:

Guest:

Ivan Veselic

Abstract:

Let $A$ be a selfadjoint operator, $B$ a bounded symmetric operator and $A+t B$ a perturbation. I will present upper and lower Lipschitz bounds on the function of $t$ which locally describes the movement of edges of the essential spectrum. Analogous bounds apply also for eigenvalues within gaps of the essential spectrum. The bounds hold for an optimal range of values of the coupling constant $t$. This is result is applied to Schroedinger operators on unbounded domains which are perturbed by a non-negative potential which is mostly equal to zero. Unique continuation estimates nevertheless ensure quantitative bounds on the lifting of spectral edges due to this semidefinite potential. This allows to perform spectral engineering in certain situations. The talks is based on the preprint https://arxiv.org/abs/1804.07816

Impact of Eigenstate Thermalization on the Route to Equilibrium

Abstract:

The eigenstate thermalization hypothesis (ETH) and the theory of linear response (LRT) are celebrated cornerstones of our understanding of the physics of many-body quantum systems out of equilibrium. While the ETH provides a generic mechanism of thermalization for states arbitrarily far from equilibrium, LRT extends the successful concepts of statistical mechanics to situations close to equilibrium. In our work, we connect these cornerstones to shed light on the route to equilibrium for a class of properly prepared states. We unveil that, if the o--diagonal part of the ETH applies, then the relaxation process can become independent of whether or not a state is close to equilibrium. Moreover, in this case, the dynamics is generated by a single correlation function, i.e., the relaxation function in the context of LRT. Our analytical arguments are illustrated by numerical results for idealized models of random-matrix type and more realistic models of interacting spins on a lattice. Remarkably, our arguments also apply to integrable quantum systems where the diagonal part of the ETH may break down.

Topic:

Eigenvector-related correlation functions and their connection with generalized chiral random matrix ensembles with a source

Abstract:

We will introduce eigenvector-related correlation functions, discuss briefly their significance in dynamical Ginibre ensemble [1,2] and present asymptotic results in the large matrix size limit. Motivated by recent work [3] on joint eigenvector-eigenvalue correlation function valid for finite matrix size N in the complex and real Ginibre Ensembles, we study integrable structure of a certain generalized chiral Gaussian Unitary Ensemble with a source [4]. This model can be also interpreted as a deformation of the complex Ginibre Ensemble with an external source with additional determinant term. We present compact formulas for the characteristic polynomial, inverse characteristic polynomial and the kernel. In the case of a special source, we calculate asymptotics in the joint "bulk-edge" regime of all aforementioned objects and show their Bessel-type behaviour.

The Random Normal Matrix Model: Insertion of a Point Charge

Date:

Time:

Place:

Guest:

Abstract:

We study conditional two-dimensional log-gases in the determinantal case, given that there is a point charge in the interior of the support of the equilibrium measure (the ''droplet''). On a microscopic level, we obtain near the inserted charge a family of universal point-fields, depending on the strength of the charge and so on, which are characterized by special entire functions -- Mittag-Leffler functions. The charge also affects the microscopic behaviour near the boundary of the droplet, where it gives rise to a kind of balayage operation. One motivation for studying this kind of conditional point-processes is that they are closely related to the characteristic polynomial of a random normal matrix -- an object of interest for field theories and multiplicative chaos. The talk is based on joint work with Kang and Seo.
