7th School on Mathematical Physics
25th - 29th May 2015 Topological quantum matter: From theory to applications

The 7th school on mathematical physics will take place form the 25th to the 29th of May 2015. More information about the topic and inscription will be available at the end of January.

The quantum nature of condensded matter systems, particularly in two dimensions, has shown to be a rich source of novel topological phenomena of great theoretical and practical interest. The aim of the school is to give an overall view of the state of the art in this fascinating field of Topological Quantum Matter. Through three mini-courses given by renown experts in the field, we will study several of the most important topological aspects, their mathematical description, their manifestation in concrete physical systems, and finally, their applications to Quantum Computation and Quantum Information.

The school is aimed at undergraduate, graduate and PhD students and researchers interested in the topic.

The school will consist of a series of morning lectures given by the invited speakers. The participants will have the possibility to give talks or present posters in the afternoon sessions. We are also studying the possibility to have problem sessions in the afternoons organized by Inti Sodemann. The morning lectures will be held in English, afternoon lectures can be held in English or Spanish.

The mini courses are given by
