Abstract

Quantum materials exhibit a spectacular variety of unusual emergent behavior that is practically impossible to predict from first-principles. Experiment is crucial for discovering phenomena such as the metal-insulator-transition, the Kondo effect, or superconductivity. Theory provides the paradigm for understanding these states of matter. Developing such understanding relies on the close interplay between theory and experiment, with experiments constantly putting theoretical ideas to a test. This year's school will cover experimental techniques such as optics, photoemission, NMR, and tunneling spectroscopy. Understanding these experiments requires the realistic modeling of materials as well as approaches to solving them. Lectures ranging from the model building schemes to advanced many-body techniques provide the foundation to unraveling the mystery of these materials. Introductions to theoretical approaches for calculating spin, charge, and orbital structure as well as response functions provide direct contact to the experimental probes. The aim of the school is to introduce advanced graduate students and up to the essence of emergence and modern approaches for modeling strongly correlated matter.
