Download e-book for kindle: 40 Years of Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless Theory by Jorge V José

By Jorge V José

On the fortieth anniversary of the Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless conception (BKT), this informative quantity seems to be again at the various advancements and achievements and sundry physics purposes which ensued from the attractive BKT vortex-unbinding seminal idea.

During the final 4 many years, BKT idea, that's undeniably probably the most very important advancements in condensed topic and theoretical physics of the second one half the 20th century, has multiplied greatly. it's been used and prolonged from many alternative theoretical and experimental views. New and unforeseen gains were exposed from the BKT concept. considering its inception, except purposes in condensed topic physics, the speculation has been actively utilized in different branches of physics, similar to excessive power physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, statistical physics, nonlinear structures, and so forth. This makes the speculation an fundamental subject for all who're inquisitive about physics.

An foreign crew of specialists, each one of whom has left his mark at the advancements of this extraordinary idea and experimental functions, give a contribution either historic essays and extra special present technical and experimental money owed to this quantity. those articles spotlight the hot discoveries from the respective authors' perspectives.

This exact quantity celebrates the impression over 4 a long time of the BKT concept on smooth physics. as well as the historic viewpoint supplied by means of Kosterlitz and Thouless's review, the amount offers a entire description of experimental and theoretical purposes and extensions of the BKT theory.
