Title: Nonequilibrium Physics of Correlated Electron Materials
Abstract: One of the new frontiers of condensed matter physics is the nonequilibrium properties of correlated electron materials-in other words, what happens when you drive an interestng system far out of equilibrium. From the conceptual point of view the topic is interesting because the concepts we know well from the equilibrium case dont apply to the nonequilibrium case, while from the experimental point of view the topic is interesting because whole new ranges of experiments are becoming possible. In this talk I will review the basic types of nonequilbrium experiments, summarize what is known and outline the open issues.
