On the fortieth anniversary of the Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless concept (BKT), this informative quantity appears to be like again at a number of the advancements and achievements and sundry physics functions which ensued from the gorgeous BKT vortex-unbinding seminal idea.
During the final 4 many years, BKT conception, that's undeniably the most vital advancements in condensed topic and theoretical physics of the second one 1/2 the 20th century, has improved commonly. it's been used and prolonged from many alternative theoretical and experimental views. New and unforeseen positive aspects were exposed from the BKT concept. on the grounds that its inception, except functions in condensed topic physics, the idea has been actively utilized in different branches of physics, comparable to excessive strength physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, statistical physics, nonlinear structures, and so on. This makes the idea an integral subject for all who're excited by physics.
An foreign workforce of specialists, every one of whom has left his mark at the advancements of this impressive conception and experimental functions, give a contribution either historic essays and extra precise present technical and experimental money owed to this quantity. those articles spotlight the recent discoveries from the respective authors' perspectives.
This detailed quantity celebrates the effect over 4 a long time of the BKT concept on glossy physics. as well as the historic viewpoint supplied by means of Kosterlitz and Thouless's assessment, the amount offers a complete description of experimental and theoretical purposes and extensions of the BKT theory.
