[Host: Olivier Pfister]
The rich behavior of the dynamics of quantum systems is
still being uncovered, both through theoretical and experimental
research. In this talk I will discuss some recent work on
simple quantum dynamical models, where exact predictions
are possible. Despite their simplicity, these models
exhibit curious phenomena, including quantum revivals,
quantum carpets, and "the sound of one hand clapping".
I will also attempt to answer the contemporary question
"why not just solve these models on the computer?"
