Symmetry and topology: new twists in condensed matter

The school aims at a broad introduction to contemporary topics in condensed matter physics. This year's special focus is on superconductivity, quantum criticality, and various aspects of topology in condensed matter. The longer basic lectures are dedicated to these three themes. Five shorter lectures will complement with further theoretical and experimental background about correlated and topological quantum matter. In MaNEP's tradition, a warm and interactive atmosphere between participants, lecturers and organizers is foreseen.
