QIMW01 - Quantum integrable models in and out of equilibrium

Co-authors: Andrew Potter (UC Berkeley), Sid Parameswaran (UC Irvine)

In this talk, I will review the physics of many-body localized systems that fail to self-thermalize in isolation. I will argue that such systems can be thought of as being generically “integrable”, and discuss their universal dynamics after a quantum quench. I will also describe the new types of nonequilibrium phase transitions that can arise in the presence of many-body localization, and introduce new effective renormalization group approaches to capture their universal critical properties.
