Journal Club on Condensed Matter Theory
The journal club is an event organized jointly with the Belzig group and takes place on Tuesdays at 12:00 s.t. in P812. Here you find a list with speakers and dates for the Journal Club. If you have any complaints about this schedule, feel free to write an email.

And here's how it works:
- Pick three recent papers from the arXiv (cond-mat or quant-ph), PRL, PRB, PRA, EPL, Nature, Nature Phys., or Science.
- Preferably, the paper should not be older than a week, or from the current issue in case of a monthly journal. Exception can be made in special cases.
- The paper should be of a theory flavour. If an experimental work is presented the theoretical background must be thoroughly explained.
- Send these papers until friday noon to Guido, Wolfgang, and Marko and indicate your preferences.
- Prepare a talk of 20 minutes. If due to extensive discussion during the talk 30 minutes are reached, Damocles sword will drop ...
- Pay special attention to the proper introduction and motivation of the underlying concepts. Half of the talk should cover the basics. In general, focus on the most important observed effects. It might not be necessary to show every single figure from the paper.
- Compile a list with about 10 further articles (including abstracts) and hand it out at your talk.
- Announce your Paper by writting to the mailing list.
- If you like, send the slides of your talk and the compiled list of papers to Stefan, Marko or to the mailing list
