We study the dynamics of classical disordered macroscopic models completely isolated from the environment reproducing, in a classical setting, the ‘quantum quench’ protocol. We use two classes of models, distinguished by the complexity of their energy landscape. We identify quenches after which the evolution approaches a stationary state that can be associated to equilibrium at a single...

We investigate the quantum first detection problem for a quantum walk using projective measurement postulates. A simple relation between the measurement free state function |psi> and |phi>_n is obtained, the latter is the first detection amplitude at the n-th attempt. This relation is the quantum renewal equation, its classical counter part is widely used to find statistics of first...

We shortly review the transient dynamics of mesoscopic systems, such as Josephson junctions, in noisy environments. The role of noise induced solitons and breathers on the mean switching time from the superconducting metastable state to the resistive state, in the presence of an external noise source modeled by α-stable Lévy distributions, will be outlined. Thereafter, the dissipative...
