NON-EQUILIBRIUM DYNAMICS IN QUANTUM FIELD THEORY
October 4 - December 10, 1999Laurence G. Yaffe, Organizer, firstname.lastname@example.org, (206) 543-3902
Numerous problems of contemporary interest, such as electroweak
baryogenesis, post-inflationary reheating, and chiral condensate
ordering ordering in heavy ion collisions, involve non-equilibrium
dynamics of finite temperature quantum field theories.
Such problems involve a fascinating (and challenging) interplay of quantum
dynamics and coherence, statistical mechanics, kinetic theory,
and hydrodynamics. This INT program will focus on recent theoretical
advances in the understanding of non-equilibrium QFT dynamics.
Specific topics which are expected to receive focused attention during this program include:
