Disordered Systems : From Condensed-Matter Physics to Ultracold Atomic Gases

Summer School : Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse (Corsica, France) 30 May - 11 June, 2011

Disorder is a central topic in many areas of physics, including condensed-matter physics, optics, acoustics, seismology, and atomic physics. Landmark progress realized in the most recent years paves the way to new challenges. In particular, the interplay of disorder and interactions is one of the most challenging issues that one has to face in quantum systems.

The aim of this summer school is to provide comprehensive courses (pedagogical lectures) as well as advanced lectures (specialized talks) about the most active questions on disorder in both fields of Condensed-Matter physics and Ultracold Atoms. By bringing together internationally-renowned specialists and young researchers from the two communities, we expect emergence of new promising challenges, fruitful discussions, and cross fertilization of ideas, both on the experimental and on the theoretical sides.
