2022 Theory Winter School

The National High Magnetic Field Lab in Tallahassee, Florida held its tenth annual Theory Winter School virtually from January 10 to 14, 2022.

This year's theme is non-equilibrium quantum matter. We aim to communicate exciting new developments in this area of condensed matter physics to a wide audience. Many aspects of this subject (eigenstate thermalization, many-body localization, quantum scars, Floquet theory, random circuits, etc.) have become active research areas thanks to new analytic insights and computational algorithms. We will initiate dialogue among various subfields and between theory and experiment, with an eye on simulating non-equilibrium dynamics on intermediate-scale quantum computers.
