From condensed matter theory to sub-wavelength physics

Time:16:00-17:00 pm, Friday

Venue:Zoom: ID 4552601552;PW: YMSC

Speaker:Prof. Habib Ammari, ETH Zürich


The ability to manipulate and control waves at scales much smaller than their wavelengths is revolutionizing nanotechnology. The speaker will present a mathematical framework for this emerging field of physics and elucidate its duality with condensed matter theory.

      Modern Mathematics Lecture Series Representation theory and a little bit of quantum field theory

      Abstract:One of the central foci of representation theory in the 20th century was the representation theory of Lie algebras, starting with finite dimensional algebras and expanding to a rich, but still mysterious infinite dimensional theory. In this century, we realized that this was only one special case of a bigger theory, with new sources of interesting non-commutative algebras whose repres...
