Summary of "Wave-Particle Duality in Complex Quantum Systems."

Stunning progresses in the experimental resolution and control of natural or man-made complex systems at the level of their quantum mechanical constituents raises the question, across diverse subdisciplines of physics, chemistry and biology, whether that fundamental quantum nature may condition the dynamical and functional system properties on mesoscopic if not macroscopic scales. But which are the distinctive signatures of quantum properties in complex systems, notably when modulated by environmental stochasticity and dynamical instabilities? It appears that, to settle this question across the above communities, a shared understanding is needed of the central feature of quantum mechanics: wave-particle duality. In this Perspective, we elaborate how randomness induced by this very quantum property can be discerned from the stochasticity ubiquitous in complex systems already on the classical level. We argue that in the study of increasingly complex systems such distinction requires the analysis of single incidents of quantum dynamical processes.

Ray-wave duality in classical optics: crossing the Feynman bridge.

Classical ray and wave optics share a common structure with quantum mechanics. Much of this results from the representations given to abstract operators. It is possible to build a mathematical bridge ...

Quantum Optics of Spin Waves through ac Stark Modulation.

We bring the set of linear quantum operations, important for many fundamental studies in photonic systems, to the material domain of collective excitations known as spin waves. Using the ac Stark effe...

Quantum Groups as Hidden Symmetries of Quantum Impurities.

We present an approach to interacting quantum many-body systems based on the notion of quantum groups, also known as q-deformed Lie algebras. In particular, we show that, if the symmetry of a free qua...

Topology of One-Dimensional Quantum Systems Out of Equilibrium.

We study the topological properties of one-dimensional systems undergoing unitary time evolution. We show that symmetries possessed both by the initial wave function and by the Hamiltonian at all time...

Abnormally rapid heartbeats caused by reentry circuit in or around the SINOATRIAL NODE. It is characterized by sudden onset and offset episodes of tachycardia with a HEART RATE of 100-150 beats per minute. The P wave is identical to the sinus P wave but with a longer PR interval.

Abnormally low potassium concentration in the blood. It may result from potassium loss by renal secretion or by the gastrointestinal route, as by vomiting or diarrhea. It may be manifested clinically by neuromuscular disorders ranging from weakness to paralysis, by electrocardiographic abnormalities (depression of the T wave and elevation of the U wave), by renal disease, and by gastrointestinal disorders.
