We first review the problem of a rigorous justification of Kubo’s formula for transport coefficients in gapped extended Hamiltonian quantum systems at zero temperature. In particular, the theoretic...

Adiabatic theorem in the thermodynamic limit. Part II: Systems with a gap in the bulk
We prove a generalised super-adiabatic theorem for extended fermionic systems assuming a spectral gap only in the bulk. More precisely, we assume that the infinite system has a unique ground state
A New Approach to Transport Coefficients in the Quantum Spin Hall Effect
We investigate some foundational issues in the quantum theory of spin transport, in the general case when the unperturbed Hamiltonian operator $$H_0$$ H 0 does not commute with the spin
Adiabatic theorem in the thermodynamic limit. Part I: Systems with a uniform gap
We show that recent results on adiabatic theory for interacting gapped manybody systems on finite lattices remain valid in the thermodynamic limit. More precisely, we prove a generalised
From charge to spin: analogies and differences in quantum transport coefficients
We review some recent results from the mathematical theory of transport of charge and spin in gapped crystalline quantum systems. The emphasis will be in transport coefficients like conductivities
Locobatic theorem for disordered media and validity of linear response
Spectral localization is intrinsically unstable under perturbation. As a result, the adiabatic theorem of quantum mechanics cannot generally hold for localized eigenstates. However, it turns out that

We consider time-dependent perturbations which are relatively bounded with respect to the square root of an unperturbed Hamiltonian operator, and whose commutator with the latter is controlled by the
Purely linear response of the quantum Hall current to space-adiabatic perturbations
Using recently developed tools from space-adiabatic perturbation theory, in particular the construction of a non-equilibrium almost stationary state, we give a new proof that the Kubo formula for the
Inhomogeneous Conformal Field Theory Out of Equilibrium
We study the non-equilibrium dynamics of conformal field theory (CFT) in 1+1 dimensions with a smooth position-dependent velocity v(x) explicitly breaking translation invariance. Such inhomogeneous

The adiabatic charge transport is investigated in a two‐dimensional Landau model perturbed by a bounded potential at zero temperature. We show that if the Fermi level lies in a spectral gap, then in

Theory of quantised Hall conductivity in two dimensions
On the basis of linear response theory, the Hall conductivity is expressed as a sum of two contributions: one corresponding to the classical Drude-Zener formula, and a second which has no classical
