Condensed Matter Physics: Lesson 7

Thursday, April 20 – 3:00 pm
Amaldi Lecture Hall, "Guglielmo Marconi” Physics Building 

Piazzale Aldo Moro 5, Rome

On Thursday, April 20, Professor Roberto Car from the Department of Chemistry at Princeton University will hold the seventh lesson for the 2016-2017’s “Enrico Fermi Lectures.”

Professor Car’s lecture will address quantum effects on the phase diagram and, more specifically, hydrogen isotopes, heavy water transformation in ice explanations, the quantum partitioning function and Feynman’s walking integral.

Enrico Fermi Lessons

The Enrico Fermi Chair was established in 2011 by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research to promote knowledge of modern physics beyond the traditional range of the university courses and to celebrate the scientific tradition of our country.
 
Enrico Fermi’s genius has made long-lasting contributions modern atomic, nuclear and particles physics, as well as to solid-state physics and the study of cosmic rays, general relativity and to the calculation of massive dimensions.
 
Every year, for a semester, the Chair holds a cycle of “Enrico Fermi Lessons” at the Sapienza Physics Department. The lessons are open to the public at large and focus on the professor’s field of research.
