New questions in quantum field theory from condensed matter theory
Organizers: Subhro Bhattacharjee, Rajesh Gopakumar, Subroto Mukerjee and Aninda Sinha

Dates: Monday 28 Dec, 2015 - Tuesday 05 Jan, 2016

Description: The last couple of decades have seen a major revolution in the field of condensed matter physics, where the severe limitations of conventional paradigms (viz., spontaneous symmetry breaking and Landau’s Fermi liquid framework) have been repeatedly exposed in context of a large number of correlated electronic systems. This has led to a wide search for a more general framework that can successfully capture the low energy properties of the unconventional quantum many-body systems. The quickly expanding frontiers of this field have, among other things, explored ideas involving different ways of manifestation of symmetries in condensed matter systems, role of quantum entanglement, bulk-edge correspondence and gauge-gravity duality. This has thrown wide open newer frontiers, in turn, for fruitful exchanges between condensed matter and quantum field theory, and string theory, which have seen parallel remarkable developments over the last two decades.
In view of these current advances, the discussion meeting aims to bring together researchers to foster and develop the above connections between the two disciplines for free exchange of ideas -- both at conceptual and technical levels.
