Speaker : Prof. R. Shankar, Yale University

2015-10-03

Abstract :

The theory of the Fermi liquid was written down by Landau based on his incredible insights. After introducing the listeners to the Renormalization Group I show how it may be applied in a direct way to reproduce Landau theory and deal with other problems that have arisen since Landau's time.This will be blackboard talk with plenty of time for interruptions and questions.
