Winter School on Strongly Correlated Quantum Matter

Virtual Winter School
30 November - 18 December 2020

The last two decades have witnessed the development of an increasingly interdisciplinary approach to the theory of strongly correlated systems interfacing with quantum field or quantum information theory and more recently with artificial intelligence. This has been accompanied by rapid experimental progresses, both in solid state and atomic physics platforms. The aim of this virtual school is to present a broad-spectrum introduction to the field of strongly correlated systems, with particular attention dedicated to cross- disciplinary aspects. The school is structured combining pedagogical lectures with several small scale, 'pyramidal' tutoring for some of the lectures, a series of 'overview' selected seminars, and a poster session. It will be a particular goal to foster scientific interactions, where we eagerly await also initiative actions and contributions by the participants.

Topics include

  • Computational approaches to correlated quantum matter
  • Quantum many-body dynamics
  • Frustrated magnets and topology
  • Quantum information
  • Programmable quantum devices
  • Lattice gauge theories
