Event Details & Abstract: 

Abstract: Most quantum systems eventually follow the laws of equilibrium statistical physics  after they come to equilibrium with their environment. Recently, however, some intriguing exceptions –"quantum glass"– have been discovered. Quantum glasses remain quantum even at large scales and long times, and support new quantum phases of matter. In this talk we will explore their properties.
