Their discoveries, using advanced mathematics, had boosted research in condensed matter physics and raised hopes for uses in new generations of electronics and superconductors or future quantum computers, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said.
However, Lorentz symmetry does not apply in condensed matter because typical electron velocities in solids are very small compared to the speed of light, making condensed matter physics an inherently low-energy theory.
The subject of talks covers an extensive variety of themes in theoretical and numerical material science including conformal field theory, gravitation, and cosmology, superstring theory, the phenomenology of high-energy physics, condensed matter physics and plasma physics.

student Lior Embon, along with their colleagues in the lab of Eli Zeldov of the Condensed Matter Physics Department, have risen to the challenge thanks to a unique setup: they took a hollow quartz tube and pulled it into a very sharp point, then succeeded in fabricating a SQUID encircling the tip measuring a mere 46 nanometers in diameter--the smallest SQUID to date.
The new theory from the University of Waterloo, Harvard and Perimeter Institute explains the transition phase to superconductivity, or "pseudogap" phase, which is one of the last obstacles to developing the next generation of superconductors and one of the major unsolved problems of theoretical condensed matter physics.
