The understanding of transport properties in interacting quantum systems is one of the fundamental problems, still mostly open, in condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics. Among the unsolved questions it is worth mentioning:
the role of integrability in the study of transport properties;
the combined effects of disorder and interactions among particles;
the emergence of anomaly terms in transport coefficients for Weyl semimetals.
These questions have stimulated a flourishing activity in theoretical condensed matter systems and have lead to recent unexpected developments, based on a combination of techniques ranging from Bethe Ansatz to conformal field theory, from gauge theories to Renormalization Group.
A three-day workshop, to be held at the Accademia Nazionale dei
Lincei from September 23 to 25, 2019, will cover these research themes, bridging theoretical and mathematical physics, with the aim to foster a fruitful interaction between different scientific communities.
The workshop will be preceded by a school, addressed to PhD students, postdocs and young
researchers, to be held at the Department of Mathematics and Physics,
Università degli Studi Roma Tre, from September 16 to 20, 2019. The school will offer four graduate-level courses on quantum
transport and universality, with special focus on topological materials and quantum hydrodynamics.
