Abstract

One of the central themes of quantum many-body physics and quantum field theory is the emergence of universality classes. In general, determining which universality class emerges in a quantum many-body system is a highly complex problem. I will argue that the perspective of quantum anomaly provides powerful insights to the understanding of the landscape of universality classes that can emerge in a quantum matter, and I will present some interesting applications.
