A Web of Dualities in Condensed Matter Physics: from Quantum Hall Effect to Exotic Quantum Criticality

September 26, 2017 - 11:00am
Speaker: 
Chong Wang
Institution: 
Harvard

Two seemingly different quantum field theories may secretly describe the same underlying physics — a phenomenon known as “duality". I will review some recent developments in field theory dualities in (2+1) dimensions and some of their applications in condensed matter physics, in particular in quantum Hall effect and quantum phase transitions.
