Abstract : Understanding dynamics and non-equilibrium steady states of macroscopic systems from microscopic principles. Connecting dynamics and information. Specific questions to be addressed: connections of microscopic description of quantum chaotic systems based on the random matrix theory (eigenstate thermalization) and macroscopic phenomena (both equilibrium and non-equilibrium). Understanding thermodynamics of periodically driven (Floquet) systems. Application of developed approaches to heat engines and other thermodynamic processes.
