"Classical and Quantum Frustrated Magnets "
 Slideshow (PDF)
We will discuss the properties of classical and quantum Heisenberg models on the lattices with corner sharing triangles; namely two dimensional Kagome and three-dimensional Hyper-Kagome lattices. The roles of thermal and quantum fluctuations, and the resulting ground states will be the focus of the discussion. Connection to recent experiments on Volborthite, Na4Ir3O8, and Zn-paratacamite will also be discussed.
