PHYS 657 Classical Condensed Matter (3 credits)

Offered by: Physics (Faculty of Science)

Administered by: Graduate Studies

Overview

Physics : Coarse-grained dynamic models in condensed matter. Spontaneously broken symmetry and slow dynamics. Nonlinear phenomenology (Ginzburg-Landau), perturbation theory, mode coupling, and dynamic renormalization group. Strong nonlinearity: solitons, unstable interfaces, topological defects. Nonlinear dynamics: secular perturbation theory, stability, centre manifold reduction, amplitude and phase equations. Stochastic differential equations and stochastic bifurcation.
