Highlighted Paper


Strange Metal Virtual Workshop

We held a 3-day workshop between July 28-30, 2021  on strange metal physics observed in the panoply of materials ranging from cuprates to pnictides, heavy fermions, and TBLG.  The workshop will bring together (though virtually) experimentalists and theorists trying to address the fundamental issues of Planckian dissipation, quantum criticality, Mottness, and quadrature magnetic field scaling as they play out in these systems.

Quantum Information and Quantum Entanglement Workshop

The Institute for Condensed Matter Theory will host a conference July 15-19, 2019 in 276 Loomis on applications and aspects of tensor networks and entanglement (broadly construed). The conference is supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.  The goal of the conference is to promote discussion and interaction from a diverse range of viewpoints on topics ranging from the use of tensor networks as a conceptual language for quantum information and computation to the nuts and bolts of implementing tensor network algorithms. The conference will consist of interactive chalkboard talks (i.e. no powerpoint) with significant audience participation (discussion and interruption from the audience.)

There is no fee to attend, but we still ask you to register here for catering numbers:  https://my.physics.illinois.edu/eventreg/register.asp?id=1464
