Read e-book online 40 Years of Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless Theory PDF

By Jorge V José

On the fortieth anniversary of the Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless thought (BKT), this informative quantity appears to be like again at the various advancements and achievements and sundry physics functions which ensued from the attractive BKT vortex-unbinding seminal idea.

During the final 4 a long time, BKT idea, that's undeniably probably the most very important advancements in condensed subject and theoretical physics of the second one half the 20 th century, has accelerated extensively. it's been used and prolonged from many various theoretical and experimental views. New and unforeseen positive factors were exposed from the BKT conception. due to the fact its inception, except functions in condensed topic physics, the speculation has been actively utilized in different branches of physics, equivalent to excessive power physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, statistical physics, nonlinear platforms, and so forth. This makes the speculation an vital subject for all who're concerned about physics.

An foreign workforce of specialists, each one of whom has left his mark at the advancements of this awesome thought and experimental purposes, give a contribution either ancient essays and extra exact present technical and experimental bills to this quantity. those articles spotlight the recent discoveries from the respective authors' perspectives.

This specific quantity celebrates the effect over 4 many years of the BKT conception on sleek physics. as well as the historic standpoint supplied via Kosterlitz and Thouless's assessment, the amount presents a complete description of experimental and theoretical functions and extensions of the BKT theory.
