This School, aimed at graduate students and junior researchers, aims to teach a modern course in condensed matter and statistical physics. It combines basic concepts with recent structural and interdisciplinary developments. It features a combination of theory and computational courses, and seminars on experimental progress in the field.


TOPICS:
The program will cover a broad variety of topics within condensed matter physics, emphasizing connections with related fields such as quantum information, atomic, optical and high-energy physics:
 
1. Statistical Mechanics: from foundations to quantum information
2. Numerical methods: high-level programming and advanced numerical methods
3. Coherent dynamics: entanglement, decoherence, phase transitions, driven systems
4. Topological quantum matter: phases and diagnostics
5. Physical implementations: cold atoms, trapped ions, nanophysics, materials.
