Special Issue "Dynamics of Many-Body Quantum Systems"
A special issue of Entropy (ISSN 1099-4300).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: many-body quantum systems; out-of-equilibrium systems; open quantum systems
Thanks to continuous progress in the study of many-body quantum systems, it is now possible to study, both theoretically and experimentally, the dynamics of complex many-body quantum systems to unprecedented levels.
Recent investigations have studied the thermalization properties of many-body systems and their relaxation dynamics. These issues have been investigated with or without the presence of dissipation, and in the latter case, the resulting steady state has attracted significant attention. An important focal point has been the ability to control many-body quantum systems, to generate target states, and to induce the emergence of correlations.
This progress, both for unitary and dissipative systems, would not have been possible without progress in numerical methods and in experiments such as those involving ultracold atoms, trapped ions, superconducting qubits, circuit QED, and solid-state systems.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collate important aspects of this body of knowledge with relevance both from a fundamental and an applied perspective.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
