In a seminal paper, Voevodsky introduced the smash-nilpotence equivalence relation on the group of algebraic cycles on a smooth projective variety. He also conjectured that the nilpotence equivalence corresponds to the classical numerical equivalence on cycles. More recently, Bernardara, Marcolli and Tabuada defined a noncommutative version of this conjecture for smooth and proper dg categories. ...

The study of quantum materials in out-of-equilibrium conditions following excitation with ultrafast lasers represents one of the novel research frontiers in condensed matter physics. With femtosecond optical pulses, electronic and lattice degrees of freedom can be transiently decoupled, giving the opportunity of stabilizing new states inaccessible by quasi-adiabatic pathways. This becomes particularly interesting for the ... Read more about "Ultrafast study of out-of-equilibrium quantum materials - LACUS Seminar"
