The school aims at bringing together Ph.D. students and young scientists from all over the world working (or who want to start a new research path) in new phenomena emerging from the competition between strong correlation, spinorbit or other nontrivial topological interaction.
Main topics will include
• Spinorbit Mott insulators
• Topological Kondo Insulators
• Novel magnetic phases and quantum spin liquids
• New topological correlated phases
• SpinOrbit effects in oxide heterostructures
A detailet project for the school is available here: corso2015
Lectures will be given by recognized experts of the field over a 10day full immersion (August 414) into the friendly and stimulating environment of the IESC in Cargese, Corse (France). Moreover lectures will be supported by focustopic talks given by international invited speakers.
