Event Details

The theory of hydrodynamics has proven to be one of the most broadly applicable paradigms in physics, describing the dynamics of systems ranging from conventional fluids to the quark-gluon plasma or the universe on large scales. Recently there has been a resurgence of interest for hydrodynamic techniques in certain condensed matter systems where strong interactions preclude a traditional perturbative treatment. I will present the techniques used in the field and show how they can be applied to address long-standing challenges in condensed matter physics: high temperature superconductors and the fractional quantum hall effect.
