The approach to thermal equilibrium, or thermalization, in isolated quantum systems is among the most important and fundamental problems in statistical physics. Recent theoretical studies have revealed that thermalization in isolated quantum systems has several remarkable properties, which emerge from quantum entanglement and are quite distinct from those in classical systems. Experimentally, well isolated and highly controllable ultracold quantum gases offer an ideal platform to study the… CONTINUE READING
