Some remarks on adiabatic time evolution and quasi-static processes in translation-invariant quantum systems
This talks concerns slowly varying, non-autonomous quantum dynamics of a translation invariant spin or fermion system on the lattice Z^d . This system is assumed to be initially in thermal equilibrium, and we consider realizations of quasi-static processes in the adiabatic limit. By combining the Gibbs variational principle with the notion of quantum weak Gibbs states, we will discuss a number of general structural results regarding such realizations.
This talk is based on a joint work with C-A Pillet and C. Tauber.
