CMSA Strongly Correlated Quantum Materials and High-Temperature Superconductors Series: What do we know about the essential physics of high temperature superconductivity after one third of a century?


December 17, 2020      10:30 am
Speaker: Steven Kivelson - Stanford University

Despite the fact that papers submitted to glossy journals universally start by bemoaning the absence of theoretical understanding, I will argue that the answer to the title question is “quite...

CMSA Strongly Correlated Quantum Materials and High-Temperature Superconductors Series: Organizing Principle of Mottness and Complex Phenomenon in High Temperature Superconductors


December 16, 2020      10:30 am
Speaker: Zheng-Yu Weng - Institute for Advanced Study, Tsinghua University, China

The complex phenomenon in the high-Tc cuprate calls for a microscopic understanding based on general principles. In this Lecture, an exact organizing principle for a typical doped Mott insulator will be presented, in which...
