Quantum synchronization

Synchronization of classical self-oscillators is a universal phenomenon that has applications in engineering, biology, and other areas. Recently, experimental progress in optomechanical systems, in trapped-ion setups, and in superconducting circuit-QED architectures has led to the realization of self-oscillators that are reaching the quantum threshold. In my talk I would like to describe theoretical approaches to the synchronization problem for quantum oscillators and discuss some of the issues and open questions.
