Consider a quantum system in thermal equilibrium with a heat bath. In determining the density operator of the system, the usual procedure is to maximize the von Neumann entropy subject to the ...
Is the “particle number” of “electrons” well defined in Wen's string-net theory of elementary particles?
According to professor Wen's string-net theory, electrons can be viewed as the elementary excitations of string-net objects. Just like the phonons and magnons are the elementary excitations of ...
I am in the process of applying Beenakker's tunneling master equation theory of quantum dots (with some generalizations) to some problems of non-adiabatic charge pumping. As a part of this work I ...
