|Title:||Composite fermions: magical beauty of emergence|
|Seminar:||Department of Mathematics Colloquium|
|Speaker:||Jainendra Jain, Penn State University|
|It is surprising that we can make any progress at all in understanding the behavior of a collection of a large number of interacting particles, given that even the problem of three interacting particles cannot be solved exactly. The trick is to guess emergent principles guided by experiment. I will talk about how new particles emerge in the context of the fascinating phenomenon known as the quantum Hall effect (1985 and 1998 Nobel Prizes), and how they help solve a problem that at first seemed utterly impossible.|
