CM1: Theory of High Temperature Superconductors

Module title: Theory of High Temperature Superconductors (CM1)

Module convenor: Dr. Martin Long (Birmingham)

The point to this course is NOT to solve the problem but to employ the problem
as a vehicle for introducing the basic techniques for modeling and
remodeling condensed matter systems. The course comes in eight parts

(1) Basic Modeling
(2) Wannier orbitals
(3) Operator perturbation theory
(4) Projection operators and quantum spins
(5) Zhang-Rice Singlets: Exact
(6) Impurity theory
(7) Zhang-Rice Singlets
(8) Quantum spins and superconductivity?

although the last section is very sketchy. The course is assessed through
eight problems which are tackled DURING the course.
The problems involve
"Schrieffer-Woolf and heavy fermions."
and the course is quite mathematical...
