Attendance and participation
Estimated Weekly Independent Workload (in hours)
- Transport theory: Kubo formula, quantum kinetic equation, weak disorder effects Landauer formula.
- Mesoscopic systems: universal conductance fluctuations, transport in 1D (bosonization).
- Strong disorder and localization: replica, supersymmetry and scaling.
- Interacting systems: disordered superconductors, electric and thermal transport.
Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to be acquainted with important effects in transport theory, localization and the interplay of disorder and interactions. Understand and apply basic methods for disordered systems
