D. Arovas: "A Brief History of Quantum Magnetism" (UCSD)

  • Starts: 3:00 pm on Tuesday, April 2, 2024
I will describe major developments in the field of quantum magnetism, from Bethe's wavefunction for the spin-1/2 antiferromagnetic chain, the Haldane gap, valence bond solids, symmetry protected topological phases, and quantum spin liquids. This field has been one of the most consequential within condensed matter physics over the past several decades.
