Strongly Correlated Systems: from the Fermi-liquid theory to DMFT (and beyond)

Advanced course given by Massimo Capone

Term: 0

Start: 08-03-2022 End: 13-04-2022 Room: 131

Credits: 4

Schedule: Tue 11:00 - 13:00, Wed 11:00 - 13:00


The course will address the physics of strongly correlated many-body systems and it will be centered around the solutions of the Hubbard model with a particular emphasis on the Mott-Hubbard metal-insulator transition.  In case of request, an extra 2-credit module can be activated.

The exam is a 30' seminar typically based on a few papers complementing the topic of the course
