Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

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, crystal defects, probes of cold atoms, probes of cuprate superconductors, conformal field theory and symmetry, geometry in quantum mechanics, quantum many-body physics in one dimension, sloppy models, asymptotic analysis, applied dynamics, competing ferroic orders, quantum criticality, equation of motion approach to many-body physics, dynamics of infectious diseases, Ginzburg-Landau theory, constraint problems, quantum optics, Luttinger liquids, quantum antiferromagnets, density functional theory, Feynman diagrams and excited states, quantum Monte Carlo methods, path integrals for quantum statistics and dynamics, and, tensor networks for quantum many-body problems. Future topics may include dilute cold gases and exotic quantum phenomena, thermodynamic Green's functions, 1/N expansions, instantons, 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 previous fall semester.
