Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics

## Research activities of the condensed matter theory group

The Rutgers faculty in condensed matter theory have interests
spanning many areas including: highly-correlated electron
phenomena, such as high-temperature superconductivity, magnetism
and heavy-fermion physics; physics at surfaces, including dynamic
phenomena and electronic and geometrical structure; quantum
liquids; equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics;
breakdown phenomena in disordered materials; first-principles
calculations of electronic and structural properties; phase
transitions and critical phenomena; semiconductor physics; quantum
statistical mechanics and field theory; thermodynamics, transport
and localization in disordered systems. There is also a strong
mathematical physics effort at Rutgers, centered primarily on
rigorous results in statistical mechanics and quantum field
theory.

the members of the group.
