Curricular information is subject to change
The course introduces the theoretical concepts underlying quantum condensed matter physics. The student will acquire a knowledge of the basic tools used by a theoretical physicist involving many-body quantum mechanics, including tight-binding formalism, Green's functions, quantum transport techniques, quantum phase transitions. The student will be able to apply these techniques to physical problems of relevance in modern condensed matter science.
