Phase transitions with disorder

Feb 18, 2010, 11:00 AM


Prof. Mats Wallin (Theoretical Physics KTH)


Disordered systems often display new emergent phases and phase transition, for example, spin glasses and similar states in quantum fluids with disorder. Other examples where confinement effects play an important role are given by porous matter. Experiments on such systems often indicate strong finite size effects that need to be understood. We use an approach involving Monte Carlo simulation and scaling analysis to address  these issues. I will describe some of our recent studies.
