# Many Body Physics: Unfinished Revolution

@article{Coleman2003ManyBP, title={Many Body Physics: Unfinished Revolution}, author={Piers Coleman}, journal={Annales Henri Poincar{\'e}}, year={2003}, volume={4}, pages={559-580} }

Abstract.The study of many body physics has provided a scientific playground of surprise and continuing revolution over the past half century. The serendipitous discovery of new states and properties of matter, phenomena such as superfluidity, the Meissner, the Kondo and the fractional quantum hall effect, have driven the development of new conceptual frameworks for our understanding about collective behavior, the ramifications of which have spread far beyond the confines of terrestrial…
