  • Abstract

  • Strongly correlated quantum materials host a variety of phenomena beyond the current paradigms of condensed matter physics. Prime examples include the half quantization of Majorana fermions in quantum magnets, non-Fermi liquids around quantum criticalities, and exotic thermal phase transitions in strongly correlated systems. Mysterious and puzzling phenomena such as high temperature superconductivity and hidden orders remain unsolved, and new theoretical concepts and tools have been developed and applied. In this colloquium, we introduce exciting advances in strongly correlated systems and discuss open problems and issues which may give us hints of new physics.
