The course is aimed at giving introduction to basic as well as some of the modern problems and methods of Condensed Matter theory. Because the field is the largest part of modern physics, we could not cover everything. Rather the course will have several parts that cover crucial topics that a researcher working in model physics needs to understand. We will use several books to cover different parts.
You will be able to apply the following methods for studies of many-body systems:
