24hr take-home exam, starting at 8am, Aug 24th, to be returned by 8am Aug. 5th.
Estimated Weekly Independent Workload (in hours)
General theme (experiment theory experiment cycle), Effective theories at low energies.
Superfluidity and Superconductivity: phenomenological approach.
QHE, Topology of Graphene (Band Structure) , Topological insulators.
Magnetism and Quantum magnetism.
Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:
Demonstrate understanding of the phenomenological aspects of super-fluidity and superconductivity, a few topological phenomena in condensed matter physics and the basic of magnetism - both in physical terms and more technical terms.
Continue their studies to the second course of condensed matter and more advance courses that include microscopic theories.
