The annual Nordita Winter Schools are research training courses, at which distinguished researchers from around the world lecture on topics at the forefront of theoretical physics, for an audience of Ph.D. students and beginning postdocs. The 2014 school will be in the area of condensed matter physics.
Students will be given an overview of the most important ideas underlying modern condensed matter theory, an introduction to current trends of particular interest, and also the tools required to enter into rapidly developing areas of research. Topics will include strongly correlated electrons, topological states of matter, unconventional superconductivity, and the physics of low-dimensional structures.
The school, to be held at Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden, will run for two weeks, with four hours of lectures per day.
The first day of the School falls on a public holiday in Sweden. Therefore, formal registration will occur on Tuesday 7th. However, lectures will begin at 9.30am on Monday 6th.
Participants should come to the main Nordita building (address Roslagstullsbacken 23) and ring the doorbell. Someone will be present from 8.30am to open the door.
