Scope of the Euroschool
C-MAC Euroschool 2017 will review basics of electron and phonon properties, and their interactions in complex systems. Lectures are divided into pedagogical introductions followed by tutorials where participants will apply acquired knowledge to concrete problems. Topics to be addressed cover influence of structural complexity to electron and phonon properties, and some manifestations of electron-phonon interaction (like polarons, and charge and spin density waves). Complex metallic alloys have strong application potential, from which introductory to thermoelectrics and catalysis will be given.
Since one-week Euroschool is too short to cover many important aspects of complexity influence to the physical properties, the next Euroschool 2018 in Krakow will be continuation with complementary topics covered.
