A Web of Dualities in Condensed Matter Physics: from Quantum Hall Effect to Exotic Quantum Criticality
Speaker(s): Chong Wang
Abstract:

Two seemingly different quantum field theories may secretly describe the same underlying physics — a phenomenon known as “duality". I will review some recent developments in field theory dualities in (2+1) dimensions and some of their applications in condensed matter physics, in particular in quantum Hall effect and quantum phase transitions.
