Research

research overview

  • I develop theories of broad range of condensed matter, that includes: superconductors, magnets, polymers, liquid crystals, colloids, disordered systems, degenerate atomic gases, and critical phenomena, quantum molecular chemistry. The common theme that unifies these topics is the qualitatively important role played by thermal and quantum fluctuations and interactions.

keywords

  • Condensed matter physics theory, atomic gases, critical phenomena, disorder, superconductivity, magnetism, soft-matter, quantum molecular chemistry
