The physics of this year’s Nobel prize in physics – a personal point of view

Abstract: The Nobel Prize in Physics in 2016 was awarded to David J. Thouless, F. Duncan M. Haldane, and J. Michael Kosterlitz “for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter”. In this talk I will briefly describe the historical development and the key findings of the Nobelists from the topological excitations of the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition to the novel topological phases of matter unraveled by Thouless and Haldane.

Helsinki Higgs Forum, 14-16 December 2016, Physicum, Kumpula campus
The aim of the Forum is to bring together Higgs physics experts representing its different facets: phenomenology, cosmology and experiment, and create a productive atmosphere for exchange of ideas across the fields.
The Forum is also expected to engage local students and staff providing them with the state of the art in Higgs physics. The format of the meeting assumes plenary talks only as well as a young scientist forum.

Registration is open.
