Hubbard Theory Consortium

The quantum many body problem in condensed matter is one of the grand challenges for 21st century physics. New states with striking properties emerge from the collective behaviour of interacting electrons in materials. Due to the intrinsic difficulty of this field, an effective strategy for the discovery, understanding, and design of new strongly-correlated materials will increasingly involve experimentalists and theorists working closely together. This is the aim of the Hubbard Theory Consortium (HTC). The HTC brings together condensed matter theorists in a growing and inclusive consortium to work in close collaboration with experimentalists using world-leading facilities. In addition, the HTC aims to act as a hub of excellence to promote interactions with leading theorists and experimentalists from all over the world. The HTC was founded in 2010 and since then has been organizing the ``Condensed Matter Physics in the City'' workshop series in London.
