Quantum Criticality and Topology in Correlated Electron Systems

International Seminar & Workshop
5 - 16 August 2019

(workshop week: 5 - 9 August 2019)

Strongly correlated electron systems are the main focal point of condensed matter physics. A rich variety of phases, from unconventional superconductors to correlated topological matter, is attractive both from the fundamental and technological points of view. Key questions include intertwined orders, electronic matter without quasiparticles, and interplay en interactions and topology.

Topics include

  • Electron transport without quasiparticles
  • Intertwined orders in the cuprate and iron-based superconductors
  • Correlated phases in twisted bilayer graphene
  • Correlated topological matter
  • Frustrated magnetic phases
  • Anti-adiabatic superconductivity
  • Dynamics of quantum phase transitions
