Description

Thermalization is the phenomenon where a system loses information about its initial state. Lack of thermalization can lead to interesting new phases, such as glasses and the many-body localized (MBL) phase. I will explain how to quantify the lack of thermalization, via the concepts of ergodicity, local integrals of motion, and phase-space fragmentation.

Modern advances in our understanding of non-thermalizing systems are inspired by novel numerical techniques. I will discuss how further numerical development, including machine learning algorithms, can be applied to three condensed matter topics: calculating integrals of motion[1]; a mixed ergodic-localized system[2] and the lack of thermalization in an organic electron glass[3].
