Modelling of materials with strongly correlated
The discovery of high-Tc
materials in the mid eighties has prompted a
spectacular improvement of the experimental
techniques in material science. As an outcome, new
materials are being synthesized with unexpected
magnetic and electric properties that are challenging
the traditional understanding in condensed matter
physics and that call for new theoretical methods and
ideas. Quantum field theory methods are finding
application in these new subjects. We are in
particular interested in the following topics:
approach to electron systems.
Correlated electrons in low
Quantum phase transitions.
Gauge theories in condensed
Graphite and related
materials: fullerenes, nanotubes, nanofoam.
