Many developments have recently occurred in the field of exactly-solvable quantum models in one dimension. Integrability-based methods have found applications in describing equilibrium dynamical properties of spin chains and quantum gases, allowed to study transport problems in detail, and have opened up new research fronts in out-of-equilibrium physics. The purpose of this school is to provide a solid grounding in integrability and its applications, bringing young researchers up-to-date with the most recent developments.
Les Houches is a village located in Chamonix valley, in the French Alps. Established in 1951, the Physics School is situated at 1150 m above sea level in natural surroundings, with breathtaking views on the Mont-Blanc mountain range, conducive to reflection and discussion.
