Title: Anomalous Transport Speaker: Karl Landsteiner (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid) Abstract: The concept of symmetry is one cornerstone of modern theoretical physics, quantum mechanics is another. Sometimes they are incompatible with each other. These incompatibilities are called anomalies. They constrain possible… Read More
