Unifying Themes in Condensed Matter

January 11, 2009 – January 17, 2009


Aspen Center for Physics, Colorado


Arzhang Ardavan, University of Oxford

This conference aims to highlight common physics across a wide range of condensed matter research. There will be particular focus on (i) the transition from quantum to classical magnetism, (ii) non-uniformity, disorder and nanoscale science, (iii) the effects of strong correlations, and (iv) ultrafast phenomena. The schedule and structure of the program will encourage participation across these disciplines; each subject will be introduced by a leader in the field, and there will be extended periods between talks for informal interactions between participants.
