Topological and Strongly Correlated Phases in Cold Atoms
Tutorial Session: 29 April
Conference: 30 April - 1 May 2015
Program Organizers: Waseem Bakr, David Huse, Curt von Keyserlingk, Yi Li, Titus Neupert
Recently, ultra-cold atom systems have become a new frontier in quantum physics. The unique controllability in experiments provides a playground for studying exotic phenomena proposed in condensed matter, statistical physics, quantum information and high-energy physics.
Moreover, there is the exciting prospect of having novel topological and strongly interacting phenomena that are not easily accessible in usual solid-state systems, but realizable with cold atoms.
This program will consolidate the collaboration between cold atom experimentalists and theorists from all interested fields, to discuss new mechanisms, realizations, and detections of topological and strongly interacting phases in cold atom systems. Topics will include but will not limit to artificial gauge fields, topological band structures, fractional quantum Hall physics, Mott phases and ferromagnetic phases in cold atom systems. This program will start with 1 day of pedagogical tutorials and will be followed by 2 days of conference.
