Topological Matter in Artificial Gauge Fields (TOPART18, Winter School)

Gauge fields are fundamental for our modern understanding of physics at all scales. At high energies, the dynamics of elementary particles is governed by the exchange of gauge bosons. At mesoscopic scales, external gauge fields can dramatically change the properties of a material, seminal examples being the quantum Hall effects. Recently, the experimental realization of artificial gauge fields for neutral ultracold atoms has opened a door to the quantum simulation of topological quantum effects in well-controlled environments. The aim of this Winter School is to train a new generation of young researchers on the subject of artificial gauge fields. Application Deadline via MPI PKS webpage: Nov. 10, 2017
