Division at courseMaster's Course
Course Type:
Class Format:Circle form
Department Name : Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 1 Autumn Semester
Lecturer : Yukio TANAKA Professor  Yuki KAWAGUCHI Associate Professor  Keiji YADA Assistant Professor 
Kazuya FUJIMOTO Designated Assistant Professor 

•Course Purpose
In order to study the physical phenomena in condensed matter physics from a microscopic point of view, students read suitable textbooks and learn theoretical methods on electronic properties (magnetism, semiconductors, superconductors), cold atomic systems (Bose-Einstein condensation, Fermi superfluids), and topological materials.
1. Students are able to perform calculations on theoretical problems on quantum many body problems.
2. Students understand and can explain several phenomena of electron properties in solids, and superconductivity/superfluidity.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Quantum physics A & B, Statistical physics A & B, Solid state physics 1-4, Reading and Discussion on Applied Physics (Solid State Engineering) A, Seminar on Solid State Engineering 1A

•Course Topics
1. Electronic properties in solid state physics, 2. Topological insulators and superconductors, 3. Coldatomic systems

Textbooks will be selected at the beginning of the semester. Examples are as follows:
・K. Nomura, "Topological insulators and superconductors" (Japanese)
・K. Yamada and T. Ohmi, "Superfluid" (Japanese)
This year: Superconductivity (Ketterson)

•Additional Reading

•Grade Assessment
Oral presentations and discussions.

Those who finished Reading and Discussion on Applied Physics (Solid State Engineering) A are desired.
