It starts from basic approaches to non-equilibrium physics, such as the mean-field approach, then proceeds to more advanced methods, such as dynamical mean-field theory and master equation approaches. Lastly, it offers a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in experimental investigations of complex quantum materials by means of ultrafast spectroscopy.Thermodynamic equilibriumSuperconductorsTechnology & Engineering — Superconductors & SuperconductivityQuantum theoryCondensed matterPhase transformations (Statistical physics)Atomic & molecular physicsMean field theoryCitro, RobertaMancini, Ferdinando
