Effective field theories for non-equilibrium many-body systems

Project description

New theoretical approach to modelling off-equilibrium systems

Non-equilibrium phenomena challenge our understanding of many-body systems. Until now, systems far from thermal equilibrium could not be analysed with a framework that accounts for stochastic thermal noise. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the NonEqbSK project plans to investigate fluid systems far from equilibrium using the Schwinger-Keldysh framework. The new framework offers a systematic understanding of thermal fluctuations and dissipation and is suitable for constructing models describing non-equilibrium phenomena in many-body systems. Project results will have far-reaching implications for high-energy physics and condensed matter physics, especially concerning the hunt for the quantum chromodynamics critical point at heavy-ion colliders, modelling of living systems and the development of biophysical membranes.
