Numerical Methods for many-body open quantum systems

Dates: 9-10 January 2023
Venue: Malmaison Hotel, Dundee

This workshop focused on numerical methods (in particular tensornetwork methods) applied to modelling open quantum systems involving extended (many-body) quantum systems. Such problems arise in a growing number of fields, ranging from cold atoms, superconducting qubits, microcavity polaritons, defects in crystals andquantum dots. A key question in this field is how to extend the concepts of many-body physics—collective effects, critical phenomena and phase transitions—with driving, dissipation, and other effects that arise in open quantum systems.
