Understanding electronic and magnetic correlations

5th MaNEP Winter School

January 13 to 18, 2013 in Saas-Fee, Switzerland

The 2013 MaNEP winter school combines introductory courses with more specialized lectures in the field of correlated quantum matter.

The school offers long courses for a broad introduction to three subjects of general interest in condensed-matter research—quantum phase transitions, strongly-correlated electrons in oxides, and in heavy-fermion materials. These basic courses are enriched by five shorter lectures. Two of them introduce fields at the forefront of contemporary research—topological matter and interfaces of transition metal oxides—and three describe important experimental techniques for the exploration of condensed-matter systems—local probes (NMR, μSR), surface probes (ARPES, STM), and finally neutron and resonant inelastic light scattering.

The audience targeted is at the doctoral and post-doctoral level. A background in general condensed-matter physics should be sufficient. All courses are given in English.
