Grant to physicist gives study of strongly interacting systems a boost

A physicist at the University of California, Riverside, has received a grant of about $523,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy to study the possible emergent behavior of “strongly interacting systems,” an important area of focus in solid-state physics. Specifically, when the repulsive Coulomb force between electrons in a solid...
