Large Deviations in Quantum Spin Chains

Mathematical Physics & Probability

Speaker: Yoshiko Ogata, University of Tokyo
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Wed, Feb 17 2010, 4:10PM

While the large deviation for classical lattice spin systems constitutes a rather complete theory, our knowledge on large deviations in quantum spin systems is still restricted. In this talk, I will explain about recent progress on large deviation principles, in equilibrium states of one dimensional quantum spin systems.
