This proseminar is supervised by Chitra Rama and spans over the very
rich field of Quantum Magnetism. This field essentially explores the
physics of interacting localized quantum spins in various spatial
To facilitate the choice of a specific topic, students attending this meeting are asked to familiarize with the general topic by reading the general overview provided below.
The student prepares a presentation of around, but not more than,
one hour duration, on a specific topic assigned in advance. A tutor
from the Institute of Theoretical Physics will provide literature and
give a feedback on the student's progress. Students keep the tutor
informed about their work in weekly meetings, starting (at least) 6
weeks before the date of the final presentation.
