Nell'ambito del Colloquium il Prof. François Golse della Ecole polytechnique, CMLS, giovedì 7 novembre 2019 alle ore 14:30 presso l' Aula A del Plesso di Matematica, terrà un seminario dal titolo:
Quantum Dynamics and Optimal Transport
Tutti sono invitati a partecipare.
Organizzatori: Proff. Alessandra Lunardi, Adriano Tomassini
According to Bohr’s correspondence principle in quantum mechanics, the evolution of a particle whose action is very large when compared to Planck’s constant can be approximately described by Newton's laws of classical mechanics. In this asymptotic regime, the quantum density describing the state of the particle, which is an operator on a Hilbert space, « converge » to a « distribution function » on the particle classical phase space. The purpose of this talk is to explain how some ideas of optimal transport can be used to « metrize » the set of quantum densities, and to estimate the difference between quantum densities and distribution functions by a quantity which is nicely propagated by the quantum dynamics, and converges to the Euclidean distance between phase space points in the classical limit. (Based on works in collaboration with Clément Mouhot and Thierry Paul).
