34th Jerusalem Winter School in Theoretical Physics

Date: 
Tue, 27/12/2016 to Thu, 05/01/2017

New Horizons in Quantum Matter

All lectures will take place at the Israel Institute for Advanced Studies,
on the Edmond J. Safra, Givat Ram Campus
Director: David Gross (University of California at Santa Barbara)
 

Organizers:
Erez Berg (Weizmann Institute of Science)
Dror Orgad (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
Subir Sachdev (Harvard University)

Modern quantum materials realize a remarkably rich set of electronic phases. This school will explore the many new concepts and methods which have been developed in recent years, moving beyond the traditional paradigms of Fermi liquid theory and spontaneous symmetry breaking. In particular, long-range quantum entanglement appears in topological and quantum-critical states, and the school will discuss new techniques required to describe their observable properties.
