Recovery of normal heat conduction in harmonic chains with correlated disorder
We consider heat transport in onedimensional harmonic chains with isotopic disorder, focusing our
attention on how disorder correlations affect heat conduction. Our approach reveals that longrange
correlations can change the number of lowfrequency extended states. As a result, with a proper choice of
correlations one can control how the conductivity scales with the chain length \(N\). We present a detailed
analysis of the role of specific longrange correlations for which a sizeindependent conductivity is
exactly recovered in the case of fixed boundary conditions. As for free boundary conditions, we show that
disorder correlations can lead to a conductivity slowly dependent on \(N\), so that normal conduction is
almost recovered even in this case.

Transport on networklike structures: from light harvesting to boson sampling
Quantum transport of excitations or particles across network like structures provides a general framework
for a broad class of problems in complex quantum dynamics  from photonic circuitry to photosynthetic light harvesting.
Furthermore, advanced experimental control of network structure and particle number allows to think anew
about fundamental and nontrivial issues in many particle quantum dynamics. For example, what distinguishes
quantum statistical from bona fide many particle interference effects? How can we unambiguously
characterize the many particle wave function in a many particle quantum walk, in a statistically robust and
computationally tractable manner? How do symmetries and disorder affect characteristic transport properties?
The talk will present selected examples of recently debated, complex quantum transport phenomena on networklike
structures, and elaborate on the basic principles which determine the rather rich phenomenology.

Conservation laws, symmetry breaking and control of the heat current
The understanding of the underlying dynamical mechanisms which determines the macroscopic laws of heat
conduction is a long standing task of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. A better understanding of
such mechanism may also lead to potentially interesting applications based on the possibility to control
the heat flow. Indeed, a model of thermal rectifier has been recently proposed in which heat can flow
preferentially in one direction. In particular we discuss here the possibility to increase the rectifying
factor by orders of magnitude.
We then discuss a new approach, which is rooted in nonlinear dynamical systems, for increasing the efficiency of thermoelectric machines. The main focus will be on the physical mechanisms, unveiled by these dynamical models, which lead to high thermoelectric efficiency, approaching the Carnot limit. The role of conservation laws and symmetry breaking will be emphasized.

Strange kinetics of photons
There has been a lot of interest in recent years in disordered photonic media in which the spatial arrangement
of scattering elements goes beyond a simple Gaussian distribution. Examples include photonic quasicrystals,
hyperuniform structures, and structures in which the distribution is inhomogeneous [1]. We will discuss recent
developments in the field and in particular go into the case of selfsimilar random systems and Lévy flights.
We will discuss optical superdiffusion and show how dynamic optical measurements can be used to determine the
fractal dimension of an optical random walk [2].

Stability of the quantum harmonic oscillator under weak nonresonant forcing
It ia proved through a KAM procedure the pure point nature of the Floquet spectrum of the weakly forced quantum
harmonic oscillator under noresonance conditions, Explciti estimates are worked out on the amplitude of the
forcing term and on the ratios between the diophantine constants of the frequencies.

Measurement of the mobility edge for 3D Anderson localization with ultracold atoms
Anderson localization is a universal phenomenon affecting quantum particles in a disordered environment.
In three spatial dimensions, theory predicts a quantum phase transition from localization to diffusion at
a critical energy, the mobility edge, which depends on the disorder strength. Although it has been
recognized already long ago as a prominent feature of disordered systems, so far the mobility edge could
not be measured in any physical system.
I will report on the measurement of the mobility edge for ultracold atoms in a disordered potential created by laser speckles. We are able to measure the mobility edge in a range of disorder strengths sufficiently large to explore both regimes where the spatial correlations of the disorder are relevant or not relevant. The precise control over the atomic system allows now a close experimenttheory comparison, and is a prerequisite to study the even more challenging problem of disorder and interactions.

A Structural Phase Transition for Cold Ion Chains: Classical and Quantum
Cold ions can be confined to chains. As the density is
increased above a certain value a transition between the chain and
zigzag phases takes place. It belongs to the Ising Universality class
and was studied in the framework of Classical and Quantum Statistical
Mechanics.

Kuramoto model of synchronization: equilibrium and nonequilibrium aspects
Recently, there has been considerable interest in the study of spontaneous synchronization, particularly within
the framework of the Kuramoto model. The model comprises oscillators with distributed natural frequencies
interacting through a meanfield coupling, and serves as a paradigm to study synchronization. In this talk, I
will describe the model from a different point of view, emphasizing the equilibrium and nonequilibrium aspects
of its dynamics from a statistical physics perspective. I will discuss in a unified way known results with more
recent developments obtained for a generalized Kuramoto model that includes inertial effects and noise.
