This activity will actively discuss and work on recent advances in the physics of nonergodic transport of many-body systems in all its quantum and classical facets. In particular potential regimes of nonergodic metallic phases will be critically explored in the light of such further concepts as Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser regime, Arnold web and diffusion, amongst others. We will also explore its relation to topological properties of matter.
