Topological Phases and Functionality of Correlated Electron Systems 2019 (TPFC2019)
For a long time, magnetism has been a central subject in strongly correlated electron systems. More recently, topology led to a new classification of band insulators, namely topological insulators. Where magnetism and topology meet, we find many intriguing phenomena including emergent “relativistic” particles and multipolar degrees of freedom. The novel physics also opens up a promising direction in spintronics and other potentially practical applications. In this conference, we will explore experimental and theoretical studies on subjects ranging from fundamental issues in correlated topological phases to their cutting-edge applications to spintronics.
To provide a workshop for discussing these and other exciting recent discoveries as well as for exploring the future directions of this rapidly evolving field, the Topological Phases and Functionality of Correlated Electron Systems 2019 (“TPFC 2019”) will be held at the Kashiwanoha Campus Station Satellite, the University of Tokyo, on Feb. 18-20, 2019.
