Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter
Proceedings of the 24th Solvay Conference on PhysicseBook - 2010
Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 24th edition chaired by Bertrand Halperin did not break the tradition. Held in October 2008, it gathered in Brussels most of the leading figures working on the quantum theory of condensed matter, addressing some of the most profound open problems in the field. The proceedings contain the rapporteur talks giving a broad overview with unique insights by distinguished renowned scientists. These lectures cover the five sessions treating: mesoscopic and disordered systems; exotic phases and quantum phase transitions in model sy.
