Dynamic Quantum Matter

The conventional approaches for treating condensed matter, based on Fermi liquid theory and the associated Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson approach to phase transitions, have been challenged recently, as we see a growing library of states that do not display this behaviorm and also witness discoveries of many materials that exist on the verge of transitions to different types of ordered states. These developments are encapsulated within the new category of condensed matter known as quantum materials, which has stimulated a host of new ideas based on unconventional correlated, entangled, and topological orders. Attendant with the developments on theory and modeling we see a rapid rise of new probes of matter, most prominently, MAX IV and ESS that are capable of revealing a new and exciting behavior of quantum matter at the short time scale with high spatial resolution.
