8.514 Strongly Correlated Systems in Condensed Matter Physics ()Prereq: 8.322 and 8.333Units: 3-0-9Lecture: TR2.30-4 (32-144)Study of condensed matter systems where interactions between electrons play an important role. Topics vary depending on lecturer but may include low-dimension magnetic and electronic systems, disorder and quantum transport, magnetic impurities (the Kondo problem), quantum spin systems, the Hubbard model and high-temperature superconductors. Topics are chosen to illustrate the application of diagrammatic techniques, field-theory approaches, and renormalization group methods in condensed matter physics.S.
