QUANTUM NON-EQUILIBRIUM DYNAMICS
 — Olchanyi (Olshanii) Group
Cold atomic gases; quantum non-equilibrium dynamics; integrable systems; chaos in classical fields; scattering in restricted geometries.

 

 

 

QUANTUM NON-LINEAR DYNAMICS
 — Sundaram Group
Quantum and classical chaos, the quantum-to-classical transition, and the dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates.

 

 

 

QUANTUM MEASUREMENT & CONTROL
 — Jacobs Group
Quantum measurement theory, quantum feedback control, the quantum-to-classical transition, and applications in nano-electro- mechanical systems.

 

 

 

NON-LINEAR DYNAMICS IN BIOLOGY
