# Seminars and Journal Clubs

Friday, May 5, 2017 Giovanni Perosa (University of Trieste, Italy) ## Partial differential equation and heat conductionThe aim of this seminar is to describe the problem affecting heat transfer equation in a relativistic frame and the efforts to solve it. |
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 Mauro Paternostro (Queen's University Belfast, U.K.) ## When Maxwell deamon is your best friend: an invitation to study stochastic thermodynamics of quantum processesThermodynamics is an inherently macroscopic theory that describes energy-exchange processes between a system and its environment, and the extraction of work from a driven system. |

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 Bassano Vacchini (University of Milano, INFN-Milano, Italy) ## On the interplay between memory kernels and collisonal modelsIn recent times important progress has been made in the characterization and quantification of the notion of non-Markovianity for quantum dynamical evolutions. |
Friday, February 17, 2017 Stefano Bacchi (PhD student, University of Trieste) ## Roundup of results on Lie groups, Lie algebras and their representationsA list of basic arguments, frequently used and very useful in physics, about Lie groups will be given. |

Friday, October 14, 2016 Luca Curcuraci (PhD student, University of Trieste) ## Bohmian mechanics: basic factsIn the first part of the talk, the bohmian formulation of quantum mechanics will be briefly reviewed. |
Friday, September 16, 2016 Stefano Bacchi (PhD student, University of Trieste) ## Imaginary unit and other non-relativistic Quantum Mechanical adventures of Galilean invarianceThe role of Galilean invariance in non-relativistic quantum mechanics will be discussed. |

Thursday, June 30, 2016 Marko Toros (PhD student, University of Trieste) ## Weak gravitational fieldsWe will discuss some aspects of the General theory of Relativity (GR) for the description of weak gravitational fields. |
Tuesday, June 14, 2016 Sumanta Chakraborty (Inter University for Astronomy and Astrophysics, India) ## Information retrieval from black holesIt is generally believed that, when matter collapses to form a black hole, the complete
information about the initial state of the matter cannot be retrieved by future asymptotic observers, through l |

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 Hendrik Ulbricht (University of Southampton, U.K) ## Prospects to use levitated optomechanics to test quantum mechanics and gravityWe will discuss ideas to experimentally test collapse models [1] by both matter-wave
interferometry [2] and non-interferometric methods [3]. |
Thursday, April 14, 2016 Luca Ferialdi ## General Non-Markovian Structure of Gaussian Master and Stochastic Schrödinger EquationsGeneral open quantum systems display memory features, their master equations are non-Markovian. |
