Event Description


A remarkable recent development is the discovery of correlated electronic states in twisted bilayer graphene and other moire graphene systems. In this talk I will discuss aspects of the  theory of these systems. I will show that both strong correlations and band topology are features of many graphene moire lattices. I will discuss  interesting questions for many body physics that arise in this context and will answer some of them.
