Hydrodynamic description of Non-Equilibrium Radiation

TYPEStatistical & Bio Seminar
Speaker:Boris Rotstein
Time:14:30 - 15:30
Location:Lidow Nathan Rosen (300)
Remark:PhD seminar

Radiation at thermal equilibrium has been a triggering problem underlying the quantum revolution. Since then, this problem has been revisited recurrently in a wide range of contexts either in physics or in engineering. Examples are abundant in condensed matter, statistical mechanics and quantum field theory among others. 

Radiation far from thermal equilibrium is a problem of wide and obvious interest, yet still largely uncharted despite important advances. This talk aims to present a hydrodynamic description of non equilibrium radiation.
