Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Electron

His main research concerns Statistical physics, Mathematical analysis, Quantum mechanics, Mathematical physics and Asymmetric simple exclusion process. His Statistical physics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Conservation law, Lattice, Burgers' equation and Dynamics. His studies deal with areas such as Function, Random matrix, Scaling limit and Scale invariance as well as Mathematical analysis.

His work on Limit expands to the thematically related Quantum mechanics. His Mathematical physics research integrates issues from Dispersion relation, Wigner distribution function and Wave propagation. His Asymmetric simple exclusion process research includes elements of Initial value problem, Distribution function, Hamiltonian system and Fluctuation theorem.

His most cited work include:

  • Large Scale Dynamics of Interacting Particles (1473 citations)
  • A GALLAVOTTI-COHEN-TYPE SYMMETRY IN THE LARGE DEVIATION FUNCTIONAL FOR STOCHASTIC DYNAMICS (1169 citations)
  • Kinetic equations from Hamiltonian dynamics: Markovian limits (884 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Herbert Spohn mostly deals with Mathematical physics, Statistical physics, Quantum mechanics, Mathematical analysis and Classical mechanics. His Mathematical physics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Matrix and Quantum. His study in Statistical physics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Brownian motion, Lattice, Nonlinear system, Gaussian and Scaling.

His study ties his expertise on Quantum electrodynamics together with the subject of Quantum mechanics. His research integrates issues of Random matrix, Scaling limit and Wedge in his study of Mathematical analysis. His Hamiltonian study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Electron and Hilbert space.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematical physics (25.32%)
  • Statistical physics (25.06%)
  • Quantum mechanics (20.25%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Mathematical physics (25.32%)
  • Integrable system (5.57%)
  • Statistical physics (25.06%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Herbert Spohn spends much of his time researching Mathematical physics, Integrable system, Statistical physics, Nonlinear system and Mathematical analysis. Herbert Spohn interconnects Matrix, Electron and Charge in the investigation of issues within Mathematical physics. His research in Integrable system intersects with topics in Current, Quantum and Conservation law.

His Statistical physics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Molecular dynamics, Non-equilibrium thermodynamics, Distribution, Gaussian and Anharmonicity. Herbert Spohn combines subjects such as Classical mechanics, Lattice and Scaling with his study of Nonlinear system. His Mathematical analysis research incorporates elements of Jump and Brownian motion.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Nonlinear Fluctuating Hydrodynamics for Anharmonic Chains (247 citations)
  • The One-Dimensional KPZ Equation and Its Universality Class (154 citations)
  • Drude Weight for the Lieb-Liniger Bose Gas (123 citations)
