Storrs Campus

Prof. A. Polkovnikov, Department of Physics, Boston University

Periodically driven quantum systems

In this talk I will give an overview of periodically driven (Floquet) quantum systems. In particular, after giving a general introduction I will discuss basic ideas of Floquet engineering, relation between the high frequency expansion and the Schrieffer-Wolff transformation, general questions of adiabaticity in such systems, heating and the ways to suppress it.
