Advanced Condensed Matter Physics

Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and NPTEL via Swayam

Overview

The Course deals with the prerequisite material for studying advanced level research in Condensed Matter Physics. The course begins with a preliminary discussion on second quantization, followed by zero temperature and Matsubara Greens functions. Applications to Hubbard model, Kane Mele model and superconductivity are discussed.

Intended Audience : UG and PG students of Electrical and Electronics Engineering/Engineering Physics/PhysicsPre-requisites : Solid State Physics Course
