By Nai-Phuan Ong, Ravin Bhatt

This e-book offers articles written by way of prime specialists surveying numerous significant subfields in Condensed subject Physics and similar sciences. The articles are in keeping with invited talks provided at a up to date convention honoring Nobel laureate Philip W. Anderson of Princeton collage, who coined the word "More is diverse" whereas formulating his competition that every one fields of physics, certainly all of technological know-how, contain both primary insights. The articles introduce and survey present learn in parts which have been with reference to Anderson's pursuits. jointly, they illustrate either the deep impression that Anderson has had during this multifaceted box in the past part century and the development spawned through his insights. The individuals conceal a variety of issues below the umbrellas of superconductivity, superfluidity, magnetism, electron localization, strongly interacting digital platforms, heavy fermions, and illness and frustration in glass and spin-glass platforms. additionally they describe interdisciplinary components resembling the technological know-how of olfaction and colour imaginative and prescient, the screening of macroions in electrolytes, scaling and renormalization in cosmology, wooded area fires and the unfold of measles, and the research of "NP-complete" difficulties in desktop science.
The articles are authored by means of Philip W. Anderson, in step with Bak and Kan Chen, G. Baskaran, Juan Carlos Campuzano, Paul Chaikin, John Hopfield, Bernhard Keimer, Scott Kirkpatrick and Bart Selman, Gabriel Kotliar, Patrick Lee, Yoshiteru Maeno, Marc Mezard, Douglas Osheroff et al., H. R. Ott, L. Pietronero et al., T. V. Ramakrishnan, A. Ramirez, Myriam Sarachik, T. Senthil and Matthew P. A. Fisher, B. I. Shklovskii et al., and F. Steglich et al.
