8th MaNEP Winter School on symmetry and topology

January 13 to 18, 2019 in Saas-Fee, Switzerland . 

The 2019 MaNEP Winter School combines introductory courses with more specialized lectures in the field of correlated quantum 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.

The school targets an audience at the doctoral and post-doctoral levels. A background in general condensed-matter physics should be sufficient. All lectures are given in English.
