Leaping dynamics in the quantum world

In recent years a novel class of experimental architectures in so-called quantum simulators has revolutionized the field of non-equilibrium quantum many-body physics. However, the characterization of such non-equilibrium systems faces a major challenge. In this context the theory of dynamical quantum phase transitions has emerged as a promising concept to formulate general principles for the dynamics in quantum systems and to understand universal behaviour far from equilibrium.
