Theoretical study demonstrates emergence of statistical behavior from quantum mechanics
Ever since the introduction of quantum mechanics, physicists have been puzzled by how such a theory can explain the experimental fact that systems out of equilibrium evolve towards equilibrium and can then be described utilizing statistical mechanics. In an article published in Physical Review Letters, a team lead by Prof. Marcos Rigol explained how this works for a rare class of systems that live in one dimension.
