PHYS 7654

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

Advanced topics in condensed-matter physics are taught by several members of the faculty. Past modules include random matrix theory, the quantum Hall effect, disordered systems and computational complexity, asymptotic analysis, superfluid physics, generalized rigidity, many-body methods applied to nanotubes, constraint problems, quantum optics, Luttinger liquids, and quantum antiferromagnets. Future topics may include dilute cold gases and exotic quantum phenomena, thermodynamic Green's functions, 1/N expansions, density functional theory, instantons, dynamical mean-field theory, conformal field theory, Fermi liquid theory and superconductivity, localization and disordered metals, renormalization groups, duality transformations, and Chern-Simons gauge theory. Detailed course content will be announced at the end of the fall semester.
