Title:  Towards Quantum Thermodynamics.

Abstract:

 I shall review our recent progress towards the construction of a framework for the analysis of thermodynamic bounds on work, entropy production and cooling speed in quantum setups. This framework is used to suggest schemes for the maximal  extraction of work, power and cooling in simple systems taking advantage of their quantumness.
