Title:Recent results in the analysis of quantum hydrodynamical models
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Olivier Pinaud, Colorado State University
Abstract:
The motivation for this work is to lay the mathematical foundations of a formal theory introduced by P. Degond and C. Ringhofer in 2003 about quantum hydrodynamics. Their idea is to transpose to the quantum setting Levermore's closure strategy by entropy minimization for the derivation of hydrodynamical models. We will present two types of results: some concerning the resolution of the so-called quantum moment problem, which is the first brick of the theory and a transposition to operators of the classical moment problem for measures; some other concerning the dynamics of quantum states and their convergence to statistical equilibria.
