of view is expressed nicely in David R. Nelson’s book Defects and Geometry in Condensed Matter Physics.4 The modern theory of critical phenomena has interesting impli-cations for our understanding of what constitutes \fundamental" physics. For many important problems, a fundamental under-. The use of topology is more common in condensed matter. Topological insulators are a big thing, 'anyons' (which can have any spin b/w 0 and 1) are understood through braid groups and homotopy and are a pretty big thing, topological defects and vor.

It considers, on the one hand, recently discovered systems such as carbon nanocrystals and, on the other hand, new topological methods used to describe more traditional systems such as the Fermi surfaces of normal metals, liquid crystals and quasicrystals.

graduate students working in various areas of theoretical physics, the topics were chosen in order to optimize overlap with condensed matter physics, parti-cle physics, and cosmology.

In the introduction we give a brief overview on the relevance of topology and geometry in physics, describe the outline of the book,File Size: 2MB. This textbook is a modern take on an old subject at the heart of materials physics. Properties of crystalline materials are almost always controlled by structural defects within them.

Until relatively recently these defects were studied theoretically using continuum elasticity theory which ignores the atomic structure of the host material. This book introduces the concepts of elasticity in the. Apart from the above, the book presents the general differential geometry of defects in spaces with curvature and torsion and establishes contact with the modern theory of gravity with torsion.
