Hubbard Theory Consortium

About Hubbard Theory Consortium

The quantum many body problem in condensed matter is one of the grand challenges for 21st century physics. New states with striking properties emerge from the collective behaviour of interacting electrons in materials.  Due to the intrinsic difficulty of this field, an effective strategy for the discovery, understanding, and design of new strongly-correlated materials will increasingly involve experimentalists and theorists working closely together. This is the aim of the Hubbard Theory Consortium (HTC).

The HTC brings together condensed matter theorists in a growing and inclusive consortium to work in close collaboration with experimentalists using world-leading facilities as the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Harwell (including the ISIS Facilities and the Diamond Light Source) and the London Centre for Nanotechnology. In addition, the HTC aims to act as a hub of excellence to promote interactions with leading theorists and experimentalists from all over the world.     
Current research directions include the theory of strongly correlated electron systems, superconductivity, magnetism, topological materials, cold atom gases, entanglement, nanostructures with spin-polarised elements, heavy fermion materials.

Key members of the ICAM team are the Condensed Matter Theory group of Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL); the Functional Materials Group of University of Kent (FMG Kent); and the Theory Group of the London Centre for Nanotechnology/University College London (LCN/UCL).
