3rd MaNEP Winter School
Exploring New Phases of Electronic Matter
11-16 January 2009, Saas Fee
The purpose of this winter school is to teach the basics of modern knowledge of strongly correlated electron systems.

Three basic courses will provide a broad introduction to the physics of correlated electron systems, superconductors and electronic properties at interfaces. Additional shorter lectures will focus on the physics of particular materials and on the theoritical methods used to describe them.

No prior knowledge apart from basic background in conventional solid state physics is required. This school is intended for PhD students and young post-docs. The courses will be given in english.
