Theory of Solids I

Office hours: To be announced
Lectures: To be announced

Instructor: Victor Galitski


The purpose of this course is to provide a framework for graduate students to understand at an advanced level some of the most important aspects of modern condensed matter physics. Modern theoretical methods will be introduced and used throughout the course. They will include the path integral formalism, the renormalization group, and diagrammatic techniques. Making use of these methods, we will study interacting fermion and boson systems, Fermi liquid theory, localization effects in disordered systems, and low-dimensional quantum magnets.
