Adventures in Quantum Critical Metals

October 1, 2019 - 4:00pm
Dr. Shamit Kachru
Stanford University
Nature has provided us with several intriguing systems where, apparently,
Landau’s Fermi liquid theory breaks down — with striking consequences for low energy physics.
In this talk I describe, in an elementary way,  (highly idealized) attempts to model these 
quantum critical systems using the techniques of quantum field theory.
