Program

This main topics of this course are going to be critical phenomena and the Renormalization group starting from the basics (universality, scaling, real space RG), to classical applications (epsilon expansion, KT transition), to quantum critical phenomena and applications to quantum nonequilibrium physics.

 

 

The course is organized in two modules, each worth 4 credits.
