Discovery of Topological Defects and Phase Transitions in 2D

Note: 37th Edmonds Distinguished Lecture
Speaker: Mike Kosterlitz, Nobel Laureate 2016 & Farnsworth Professor of Physics, Brown University

When: April 25, 2017 (Tue), 03:30PM to 04:30PM (add to my calendar)
Location: SED 130
Hosted by: Lawrence Sulak

This event is part of the Physics Department Colloquia Series.

I will explore the physics of topological defects and phase transitions in two-dimensional systems. Experimental observations of superfluids, superconductors, and crystals confirm the theories of topological defects.
