Boulder Summer School 2008: Strongly correlated materials

The 2008 Boulder school presents a leading team of experimental and theoretical condensed matter physicists to lecture on diverse aspects of this burgeoning field of research. The school will focus primarily on pedagogy, seeking to provide students with a firm foundation in the key theoretical and experimental methods, with extensive opportunities for informal and detailed discussion. Topics to be covered include fundamentals of Fermi liquid theory, magnetism and low dimensional materials, organic, oxide and heavy electron materials, diverse methods of spectroscopy and transport measurements and the link with strongly correlated physics of atom traps.

Organizers: Colin Broholm, Piers Coleman, Allan MacDonald, Ashvin Vishwanath
