8.514 Strongly Correlated Systems in Condensed Matter Physics
Study of condensed matter systems where interactions between electrons play an important role. Topics vary depending on lecturer but may include low-dimension magnetic and electronic systems, disorder and quantum transport, magnetic impurities (the Kondo problem), quantum spin systems, the Hubbard model and high-temperature superconductors. Topics are chosen to illustrate the application of diagrammatic techniques, field-theory approaches, and renormalization group methods in condensed matter physics.
8.514 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by S. Todadri.
Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-145.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
