Theoretical Materials Physics and Condensed Matter Theory

The theoretical materials physics shares essential concepts and techniques with that of particle physics and nuclear physics. Condensed matter theory studies strongly correlated materials, where the strong interaction between electrons in the solid state gives rise to novel phenomena. Examples include the fractional quantum Hall effect and high temperature superconductivity. The methodology of these entire arenas includes analytic tools based on field theory methods, the development of computer algorithm, and the use of high performance computation.

Condensed matter theory helps to understand the study of change in electronic behavior when the electrons are confined to nanometer-size structures, either in man-made quantum dots or in carbon nanotubes or nanowires. The phase coherence of the electron waves leads to novel behavior, and the grasp of phase coherence is vital for the development of quantum computation and quantum information science .Current tools and techniques of statistical physics are employed to study the structure, function, and evolution of atoms molecules, cells, and networks, as well as other complex forms of condensed matter.
