Condensed matter theory

Condensed matter physics focuses on understanding the diverse states of matter in crystalline solids. The main role players are the electrons amounting to macroscopic number ~ 1023 , and are interacting with each other. Theories clarify the underlying mechanism of the behavior of materials based on their structures and experimental findings, and try to predict something more, based on the knowledge of quantum mechanics and statistical physics.
Recent trends in this field are to search for exotic phases of matter, emergent phenomena, the origin of physical law, and topological phenomena. We are particularly interested in finding/understanding phases of matter in quantum many body systems in low(one and two) dimensions, where the strong correlation and fluctuation play important roles.
