[MQC-info] School on "Topology and Interactions in Optical Lattices" 09/2020, Frankfurt, Germany

30.09.2020  -  02.10.2020

Within the DFG Research Unit FOR 2414 <> "Artificial Gauge Fields and Interacting Topological Phases in Ultracold Atoms" we are pleased to announce a summer school on "Topology and Interactions in Optical Lattices", Goethe University Frankfurt, September 30 - October 2, 2020.

Topics covered by the School include engineering of artificial gauge fields in ultracold quantum gases, topological insulators and band structures, topological order in strongly correlated systems, experimental platforms from solids to quantum simulators, Floquet engineering and effects of driving in synthetic topological quantum matter.
