Description

Speaker: Dr. Shamit Kachru, Stanford University

Title: Adventures in Quantum Critical Metals

Abstract: Nature has provided us with several intriguing systems where, apparently,

Landau’s Fermi liquid theory breaks down — with striking consequences for low energy physics.
In this talk I describe, in an elementary way, (highly idealized) attempts to model these
quantum critical systems using the techniques of quantum field theory.
