Abstract: In recent years, the promise of a large-scale programmable quantum computer became more and more concrete at an impressive pace, but the final goal is still beyond the horizon. In the meanwhile, analogic quantum simulators provide highly tunable tabletop realizations of exciting phenomena traditionally belonging to high-energy physics, or admittedly simplified versions of them. In this talk, I will discuss how confinement of excitations can be realized in spin chains and analyze some facets of their rich nonequilibrium dynamics, ranging from short-time features to atypically slow late-time thermalization.
