Topological phases in condensed matter physics
September 7 to September 11, 2003
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
and Zhenghan Wang
This workshop This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will explore the interface
between topological quantum field theory and solid state physics.
We will study which "topological phases" might be physically realized
and how they might be detected and finally manipulated. The workshop
will bring together researchers in physics, mathematics and computer
