Talk Title: “Quantum Magnetism from the Iron Age to Today”

 

Abstract:

 

The quantum theory of magnetism has provided many durable paradigms for quantum phases of matter, including intrinsically quantum disordered states, symmetry-protected topological phases, and quantum spin liquids.  In this lecture, I will review some of the history and highlights of this very rich field.
