What is Quantum Unique Ergodicity?
Thursday, September 30, 2021
5:30-6:30 PM
3866 East Hall Map
In this talk, we describe flows on surfaces, and what it means for them to be classically (uniquely) ergodic. We will then describe what it means to ``quantize'' the flow, which will lead to a definition of quantum (unique) ergodicity. Time permitting, we will also see how physical intuition motivates quantum analogs of certain theorems about flows on surfaces. No prior knowledge of physics or ergodic theory is required for this talk. Speaker(s): Sayantan Khan (University of Michigan)
