Graduate school special intensive course
“Physics in Two Dimensions”
In addition to lectures in the normal style, this course includes interactive lectures, during which students have the opportunity to make presentations on their current research if they wish to. After that, Prof. Leggett and the other students pose questions for the presenter to answer. Although making a presentation is not a credit earning requirement, we recommend your full participation in this activity.
|Lecture I||May 10, 17, 22, 24, 29 and 31 (10:30 – 12:00)
May 11 & 25 (13:00 – 14:30)
|Lecture II||June 1 & June 8 (13:00 – 14:30)
June 5, 7 and 12 (10:30 – 12:00)
The course will concentrate on those aspects of the physics of two dimensional systems that have no obvious analogs in three dimensions, e.g., absence of long-range order, the quantum Hall effect, the (supposed) universality of localization. It will emphasize the comparison of theory and experiment, particularly in areas where there is currently substantial discrepancy.
