A What do people mean by "dynamical phase transition"?

  1. Mar 25, 2016 #1
    I heard of it several times in colloquiums. But I still cannot grasp the meaning. What is the control parameter in this phase transition?

    It doesn't denote a unique phenomenon. Which context do you refer to?

    One meaning of the term was introduced in
    M. Heyl, A. Polkovnikov, and S. Kehrein, Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 135704 (2013);
    they mention several other meanings of the term in the second last paragraph of p.4.
