Strongly Correlated Electronic Materials is an up-to-date compendium of recent cutting-edge research in correlated electron physics. Based on a symposium sponsored by the Center for Materials Science at Los Alamos National Laboratory, this unique proceedings volume retains the immediacy and informal feel of the meeting's dialogue and debate.This book contains articles covering important theoretical and experimental issues in high-temperature superconductors, heavy-fermion superconductors and insulators, and the metal-insulator and superconductor-insulator transition. Written by some of the most prominent researchers in the field of correlated electron physics, this collection is appropriate for advanced graduate students and researchers in the field. It will also be of interest to a wide range of condensed matter theorists and experimentalists interested in an overview of the important topics in strongly correlated electron materials.
