Daniel Arovas - Quantum Magnetism from the Iron Age to Today
From Katie Gentilello on April 22nd, 2021
The quantum theory of magnetism has provided many durable paradigms for quantum phases of matter, including intrinsically quantum disordered states, symmetry-protected topological phases, and quantum spin liquids. It also served as a birthing ground for many important developments in the theory of quantum phase transitions. In this lecture, I will review some of the history and highlights of this very rich field.
