Notes: IAS Distinguished Lecture.
Abstract: Currently, there is a worldwide effort to simulate strongly correlated electron systems in solids using cold atoms in optical lattices and in reduced dimension. The program is highly ambitious, with possibly enormous. In this talk, Prof Jason Ho describes the current situation of this effort, the main challenges and the possible solutions, as well as the exciting future prospects.
Prof Jason Ho is a theoretical physicist in condensed matter physics. His research covers the field of quantum fluids, quasi-crystals, quantum Hall effects, and quantum gases. In 2008, he was awarded the Lars Onsager Prize of American Physical Society for his contributions and leadership in cold atom physics.
