Untitled Document
The Course deals with the prerequisite material for studying advanced level research in Condensed Matter Physics. The course begins with a preliminary discussion on second quantization, followed by zero temperature and Matsubara Greens functions. Applications to Hubbard model, Kane Mele model and superconductivity are discussed.
