Quantum states in solids and their sensitivity to spectators and boundary conditions

Date: 
Monday 16th September 2013 - 16:15 to 17:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Examples of boson and fermion systems where interactions with spectators qualitatively change quantum phase transitions and states (e.g. from Fermi liquid to unconventional metal) are given. We also discuss how thermal boundary conditions can alter the states of macroscopic samples.
