|Emergent States of Matter||PHYS569||A||44753||LEC||1400 - 1520||M W||136 Loomis Laboratory||Nigel D Goldenfeld|
Consequences of broken symmetry in condensed matter, the emergence of novel ground states, and the nature of the excitations that arise. Examination of specific systems such as superconductivity, superfluidity, Bose-Einstein condensates, the quantum Hall states, liquid crystals, biological systems and patterns in Rayleigh-Benard convection. Course Information: Prerequisite: PHYS 504 and PHYS 580.
