SanD grad student attends Non-equilibrium Quantum Physics Workshop @ Stellenbosch

SanD graduate student Francis Bayocboc, Jr. attended the Workshop on Quantum Many-Body Systems Far from Equilibrium held at the National Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Wallenberg Research Centre in Stellenbosch, South Africa last 9-13 March 2015. The workshop consisted of several lectures by leading physicists who investigate the non-equilibrium behavior of isolated quantum systems, with ample opportunities for scientific exchanges between attendees. In the poster session Francis reported his theoretical results on the statistics of work done on quenched Heisenberg magnets.

Francis' attendance was supported by the UPD OVCRD through Project No. 141420 PhDIA, the UP OVPAA through Grant No. OVPAA-BPhD-2012-05, and by the workshop organizers through a student grant.
