" Quantum criticality in the high temperature superconductors"
ABSTRACT:
I discuss the phases and critical points of quantum antiferromagnets in two dimensions and their relationship to the physical properties of the high temperature superconductors. Non-magnetic impurities are argued to be a sensitive probe of the wavefunction of the electron spins: I will describe recent experiments on such impurities and the theoretical insights they have provided on the interplay of antiferromagnetism and superconductivity.
