Far-from-equilibrium Quantum Dynamics

We are using quantum field theoretical tools to investigate many-body quantum systems. The focus of our research is set on ultracold quantum gases nowadays prepared and studied in many laboratories world-wide, including those of our Colleagues at the Kirchhoff-Institut für Physik and those within the Heidelberg Center for Quantum Dynamics. Dynamical properties of many-body systems far from equilibrium are at the centre of our attention.

On these pages we give an outline of our research which is also described in detail in our publications.
