Introduction to the Volume

Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 191)


A brief introduction on the content of the Volume with a summary of the main topics for each Chapter is reported. The Volume covers the physics of correlated systems out of equilibrium from a theoretical, numerical and computational point of view. It also contains training sessions, which could be beneficial to researchers approaching the field of nonequilibrium many-body systems. The readers will strongly benefit from the different overviews.
