In the last two to three decades, strongly correlated 2D electron systems have garnered a great deal of scientific interest because of their unique and often unpredictable properties. One of the many examples is the metallic state and the metal–insulator transition discovered in 2D semiconductors—phenomena that cannot occur in non-interacting systems. This discovery is of immense importance in modern condensed matter physics, for which theoretical methods are still poorly developed.
This book compiles and details cutting-edge research in experimental and theoretical physics of strongly correlated electron systems by leading researchers in the field. Edited by Sergey Kravchenko, a prominent experimentalist, the book will appeal to anyone involved in the science of strong correlations, two-dimensional semiconductors, and conductor–insulator transitions.
