Subjects at the forefront of many-particle research, like high-temperature superconductivity, the quantum Hall effect, heavy fermions, tunneling of quantal systems with many degrees of freedom, Monte Carlo calculations on a lattice etc., were presented. The meeting was well timed as it coincided with a very active period of research in the study of superconductivity and thus provided an excellent opportunity to assess some of the major developments that have taken place in the last years.
Preface (R.A. Broglia and J.R. Schrieffer). 50 years of the Mott phenomenon: insulators, magnets, solids and superconductors as aspects of strong-repulsion theory (P.W. Anderson). Collective motion in Fermi droplets (G. Bertsch). The quantum Hall effect (R. Schrieffer and D.P. Arovas). Quantum effects in heavy-ion reactions (D.M. Brink). Heavy fermions (T.M. Rice). Theory of relaxation, phase transitions and tunnelling in nuclei (R.A. Broglia). The quantum mechanics of a macroscopic variable: some recent results and current issues (A.J. Leggett). Moments at the relativistic borderline: nuclei and rotation superconductors (G. Baym). Numerical simulations of many-electron condensed-matter systems (D.J. Scalapino). The lattice strong interactions: an introduction (E. Marinari).
