Dates: 9-13 November 2015 (5 sessions)

Time: From 9:30 to 11:30 on November 9, 11 and 13. From 15:00 to 17:00 on November 10 and 12. A total of 10 hours.

By using the algebraic formulation of Quantum Mechanics, we study the dynamics of interacting lattice fermions. The aim is to explain Ohm's law, at least in the AC-regime, from first principles of Quantum Mechanics and Thermodynamics (2nd law), only. Pivotal mathematical ingredients are Lieb-Robinson bounds for multicommutators. Their applications go far beyond the current linear response to electric fields studied in this course.
