QLUSTER Summer school: Topology and Materials

International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi": Topology and Materials 17th-22th July 2024, Villa Monastero, Lake Como, Varenna, Italy 

We are happy to announce the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi": Topology and Materials. The event is co-organized by QLUSTER and the Vienna Doctoral School in Physics and will take place in Varenna from 17th to 22th July 2024.

The interplay between Topology and Physics in the self-organization and the inherent properties of condensed matter and materials is a topic that has attracted vast attention in the recent past. The school will offer its participants an instructive training on both the mathematical fundamentals and the Physics of currently topical issues that bring about the interplay between Topology and Physics for hard and soft matter materials:

  • Mathematical fundamentals and topological geometry
  • Topological polymers: classification, structure, dynamics and rheology
  • Knots and links in Physics and Biology
  • DNA topology and function
  • Topological defects in liquid crystals
  • Topological colloids
  • Topological charge and topological quantum number
  • Topological insulators
  • Topological Quantum Chemistry
  • Dirac & Weyl semimetals
  • Majorana fermions and topological quantum computing
