The objective of the course is to introduce the basic concepts of statistical physics.
The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to the theory of a few remarkable phenomena of condensed matter physics ranging from the Quantum Hall effects to superconductivity.
To provide an introduction to all aspects of the rapidly evolving field of frustrated magnetism:
1) New paradigms: spin liquids, spin ice, topological order, ...
2) Basic models and methods
3) Experimental realizations
