Mathematical topics related to the use of entropy in physics
Mercredi, 16 Octobre, 2019 - 17:00 à 18:00
Résumé : 

After a brief introduction to the notion of entropy in the context of probability theory on finite sets, I will discuss the role of relative entropy in the mathematical description of irreversibility in physical systems. I will also hint at the mathematical work that needs to be done to extend these notions to the noncommutative setting (quantum mechanics).
