Frustrated magnetism is an exciting area of condensed matter physics. While this field is primarily driven by experimental studies of a wide range of materials, it is a testbed for exciting theoretical ideas. A new entrant to this field is faced with the challenge of learning several concepts and techniques that are not typically covered in graduate courses. Moreover, one must become familiar with well-known archetypal materials and experimental probes
This school is aimed at filling this gap -- internationally recognized researchers who are leaders in the field of quantum disordered systems will lecture on a wide range of topics. These lectures will be at a pedagogical level, accessible to a beginning graduate student familiar with quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics.The school will be followed by a three day conference discussing current advancements in frustrated magnetism. It will touch upon themes such as novel phases and quantum criticality, topological phases in magnetism, spin liquids, spin ice physics, effects of disorder, etc.
