Welcome to TTCM2017



This workshop "Trends in Theory of Correlated Materials (TTCM2017)" is a continuation of very successful bilateral workshops between Japan and Swiss that has been held on a yearly basis from 2009. It aims at bringing together both communities of condensed matter people (mainly theorists) working on correlated materials and related. The workshop also aims at nurturing scientic exchanges, collaborations, and friendships among young physicists between the two countries

The topics of the workshop include the following (can be extended).
Quantum spin systems, multiferroics, and spintronics
Topological phases of matter
Bulk-edge(boundary) correspondence
Dirac and Weyl fermions
Cold atoms
Quantum entanglement and its applications
Many-body localization and out-of-equilibrium correlated matter
Computational correlated physics and its methods
Swiss-based co-organizers
Prof. Thierry Giamarchi* (Geneva University)
Prof. Frederic Mila (EPFL)
Prof. Christopher Mudry (Paul Scherrer Institute)
Prof. Manfred Sigrist (ETHZ)
