W8. Phase Transition and Topological Phenomena

Workshop organized by:
- R. Citro  and C. Guarcello
- D.I. Uzunov


Section I

Applications and Theoretical aspects on: time-driven phase transitions, topological phenomena and superconductivity.

 R. Citro and C. Guarcello

 The workshop aims to gather together experimental and theoretical experts in condensed matter physics to advance the comprehension and discuss further the recent challenging topics on time-dependent phase transitions, topological phenomena, and superconductivity. The aim is to foster the community towards new applications and technological advancements.

As for the time-dependent phase transitions, in recent years the experiments have shown light-induced phase transitions and new fields of application are emerging, including material design. Regarding topological materials, new challenges have arisen to detect the Majorana origin of quantized conductance in superconducting hybrid structures, as well as the effect of interaction on edge channels. Finally, regarding superconductivity, non-conventional pairing and correlation effects dominates the physics of a vast class of 2D materials and novel devices were recently conceived. The workshop will offer a comprehensive overview on these topics and will be a discussion forum to promote new ideas in these fertile fields of research.

Section II

Phase transitions in various systems 

 D.I. Uzunov

This workshop is devoted to the theory of phase transitions and critical phenomena and its applications to various quantum and classical systems: condensed matter (magnets, superconductors, superfluids and BEC, ferroelectrics and structural phase transformations), Universe, Society (sociophysics, econophysics), including quantum, gauge, disorder and other effects on the phase transition properties.  Application of classic methods (thermodynamic and mean-field analyses, Renormalization Group, Density Functional Theory, Monte Carlo, Numerical Analysis) as well as new ideas and approaches to the solving of actual problems are encouraged.  Experimental reports are also greatly appreciated.
