Vortex formation and dynamics in two-dimensional driven-dissipative condensatesJul 23 2016We investigate the real-time evolution of lattice bosons in two spatial dimensions whose dynamics is governed by a Markovian quantum master equation. We derive the generalization of the truncated Wigner approximation for open quantum many-body systems ... More

The Distribution of Optimal Strategies in Symmetric Zero-sum GamesNov 18 2016Given a skew-symmetric matrix, the corresponding two-player symmetric zero-sum game is defined as follows: one player, the row player, chooses a row and the other player, the column player, chooses a column. The payoff of the row player is given by the ... More
