Cold atoms and quantum thermalization II

" According to the fundamental principles of statistical physics, the result of statistical averaging does not depend on whether it is with respect to the exact wave function of a stationary state of a closed system or by means of the Gibbs distribution.

This is a course of the VCQ Summer School 2023 on Hybrid Quantum Systems, held in Vienna between the 28.08.23-01.09.2023.


The course aims at introducing our current understanding of eigenstates of many-body local Hamiltonians, by focusing on 1) ``"generic'' expectations,  2) notable violations, and 3) interesting applications.
