Description:

The purpose of this course is to provide a graduate-level introduction to quantum many-body physics and condensed matter physics. This will include an introduction to second quantization, Green's function formalism,Feynman diagrammatic technique, Kubo linear response theory, Fermi liquid theory, Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory of superconductivity, topological quantum matter, theory of phonons in solids, theory of disordered quantum systems (in particular, localization), topological phases, and path integral formalism.
