Autumn School on Correlated Electrons 2017

“The Physics of Correlated Insulators, Metals, and Superconductors” with More than 100 Participants


12 October 2017

More than 100 young researchers working in the field of strongly correlated materials convened in Jülich during the week from 25 - 29 September.

uing original research of their own. The format of 90-minute lectures plus ample time for discussions provided a thorough introduction to modern areas of research. The School was led by Eva Pavarini from the Institute for Advanced Simulation (IAS) and Erik Koch from the Jülich Supercomputer Centre (JSC).

The lectures addressed the physics of strongly correlated matter, focusing on the nature of the insulating, metallic, and superconducting state as well as the transitions between them. After an introduction to the fundamental challenges in correlation physics, the criteria and geometrical theories for distinguishing the fundamental states of matter were introduced. Advanced lectures addressed the characteristic effects found in insulators, metals, and superconductors. The programme was completed by a set of lectures introducing modern approaches to correlation problems.

Students enthusiastically took the opportunity to discuss with the outstanding scientists at the school. In addition, a poster session allowed them to present their projects and expand their network in the global research community, represented by participants from, besides Germany and the EU, Iran, Cameroon, Saudi Arabia, India, China, Brazil, the USA, and Canada. Moreover, a number of international participants were supported by the Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter (ICAM).

To enhance the impact of the courses, comprehensive lecture notes were published as a book that was distributed at the beginning of the school. These lecture notes will help to fill the acute gap between introductory textbooks and the research literature, as is evident from the high demand also outside the school. To be as widely accessible as possible, the lecture notes have been made available via Open Access:
