International school - gapless fermions

Date & Facts

1728 Feb 2020


Properties of strongly correlated metals, often dubbed as strange metals, are rather poorly understood in comparison to their weakly interacting counterparts (normal Fermi liquids). This is in spite of their ubiquity - normal state of high temperature superconductors; metals with fluctuating magnetism; gapless quantum spin liquids, to name a few. The aim of this winter school is to teach the newest generations of young researchers the basics and central developments of the study of correlated metals.
Topics include:


  • Dirac and Weyl Fermions in condensed matter
  • Renormalisation group techniques for relativistic and non-relativistic fermions
  • Fermi and non-Fermi liquids
  • Kondo effect and heavy fermions
  • Tomonaga Luttinger liquids
  • Quantum Monte-Carlo in metals
  • Transport in metallic systems
  • Experimental realisations of strange metals
  • Metal at half filled Landau level
