Out-of-equilibrium phenomena are abundant in nature. Despite this, effective descriptions are still lacking for their understanding. In quantum systems, there are several examples of deviation from equilibrium, and the search for how such systems relax back to equilibrium is ongoing. In this Special Topic Collection of AVS Quantum Science, we welcome experimental and theoretical contributions that will lead to the better understanding of these systems and to proposals for new direction in this rich field. Original research and review articles will be accepted, highlighting the challenges in any aspect of the theme. Topics that are directly or indirectly related to quantum non-equilibrium are welcome.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Quantum fluids and quantum solids
- Prethermal states and non-thermal fixed points
- Universality and Quantum Criticality far from equilibrium
- Open Quantum systems far from equilibrium
- Kible-Zurek mechanisms
- Quench of Bose-Einstein Condensate
- Turbulence in superfluids, superconductors
- Dissipation mechanisms in out-of-equilibrium quantum systems
- Quantum thermodynamic for out-of-equilibrium systems
- Non-equilibrium quantum dynamics
- Isolated quantum systems
