Title: A New Universality at a first order transition: The spin-flop transition in an anisotropic Heisenberg ferromagnet.
On November 14 David P. Landau, Distinguished Research Professor and Founding Director of the Center for Simulational Physics, presented a Plenary Invited Talk at the Wolfgang Pauli Centre Theoretical Physics Symposium 2019 in Hamburg Germany. His talk, titled, "A New Universality at a first order transition: The spin-flop transition in an anisotropic Heisenberg ferromagnet" was presented during the 3-day symposium at the University of Hamburg.
The Wolfgang Pauli Centre is an amalgamation of physics theory groups from the University of Hamburg and DESY. The University of Hamburg is one of Germany's dozen Federally designated "Universities of Excellence", and DESY is Germany's premier, internationally recognized, high energy physics research laboratory. The Centre organizes an annual three day Symposium on Theoretical Physics, which brings together leading international experts from different areas of physics, including condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular physics, cold atoms, chemical physics, etc. This years topics were:
- Quantum dynamics of many-body systems
- Theory of Condensed Matter
- Machine learning and quantum physics
In 1925 Wolfgang Pauli (bio) published his work on the "exclusion principle" for which he was awarded the Nobel prize 20 years later.
