40 Years of Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless Theory by Jorge V José PDF

By Jorge V José

On the fortieth anniversary of the Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless conception (BKT), this informative quantity seems again at many of the advancements and achievements and sundry physics functions which ensued from the attractive BKT vortex-unbinding seminal idea.

During the final 4 many years, BKT thought, that's undeniably the most vital advancements in condensed subject and theoretical physics of the second one half the 20th century, has multiplied broadly. it's been used and prolonged from many alternative theoretical and experimental views. New and unforeseen positive aspects were exposed from the BKT conception. when you consider that its inception, except functions in condensed topic physics, the idea has been actively utilized in different branches of physics, similar to excessive power physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, statistical physics, nonlinear structures, and so on. This makes the speculation an necessary subject for all who're fascinated with physics.

An overseas crew of specialists, every one of whom has left his mark at the advancements of this impressive conception and experimental purposes, give a contribution either ancient essays and extra certain present technical and experimental bills to this quantity. those articles spotlight the hot discoveries from the respective authors' perspectives.

This distinctive quantity celebrates the impression over 4 a long time of the BKT conception on sleek physics. as well as the ancient point of view supplied via Kosterlitz and Thouless's review, the amount presents a finished description of experimental and theoretical functions and extensions of the BKT theory.

The traditional version of undemanding debris and interactions is without doubt one of the top established theories in physics. it's been chanced on to be in extraordinary contract with test, and its validity on the quantum point has been effectively probed within the electroweak quarter. regardless of its experimental successes, even though, the normal version suffers from a couple of barriers, and is perhaps an incomplete thought.
