Strong Correlation Theory in Condensed Matter Systems

Postgraduate level course on Strong Correlation Theory in Condensed Matter Systems

Course organiser: Dr Andrew Ho
Location: T125, Royal Hollowaygraph strong correlation theory
Availability: Spring Term 

Aims

To introduce key concepts and models of current interests in quantum many body theory of strongly correlated condensed matter systems. 

This brief course should bridge some of the theory gaps between undergraduate courses in eg. solid state physics, and the current research literature on strongly correlated systems. The course focuses on concepts rather than calculational details, and thus should be useful for both experimental and theoretical beginning graduate students.

Course outline
