Prof. Sir Anthony J. Leggett is widely recognized as a world leader in the theory of low-temperature physics, and his pioneering work on superfluidity was recognized by the 2003 Nobel Prize in Physics. He has shaped the theoretical understanding of normal and superfluid helium liquids and strongly coupled superfluids. He set directions for research in the quantum physics of macroscopic dissipative systems and use of condensed systems to test the foundations of quantum mechanics.
He will be visiting IISER TVM on Feb. 1, 2011. He will give a lecture at the institute between 16:30 - 17:30 hrs. For details of his lecture, please click on the following link
