“Fracton Dynamics”


I will introduce a new class of quantum states of matter, known as “fracton phases.” I will explain how these phases provide a new frontier for non equilibrium quantum dynamics, offering novel routes to ergodicity breaking, and new classes of hydrodynamic phenomena. I will also comment on how insights gleaned from the study of fractons can be applied to quantum dynamics in broader contexts.
