Emergent Phenomena in Condensed Matter and Particle Physics
  AlbaNova and Nordita Colloquium [before December 2013]

Wednesday 23 April 2008
from 10:30 to 11:30
at Svedberg salen, Albanova
Speaker : Edward Witten (Institute for Advanced Studies Princeton)
Abstract : Traditionally, there is a close analogy between condensed matter physics and particle physics, reflecting the fact that both fields deal with large scale effects of local quantum degrees of freedom. The analogy is the reason that emergent phenomena, which are ubiquitous in condensed matter physics, are also important in particle physics. The traditional analogy between the two subjects actually fails in the presence of gravity, but modern ``holographic'' insights suggest a cure.
