More is different: fifty years of condensed matter physics by Nai-Phuan Ong, Ravin Bhatt

By Nai-Phuan Ong, Ravin Bhatt

During this textual content the writer makes use of stack-theoretic strategies to review the crystalline constitution at the de Rham cohomology of a formal soft scheme over a p-adic box and purposes to p-adic Hodge thought. He develops a common thought of crystalline cohomology and de Rham-Witt complexes for algebraic stacks and applies it to the development and examine of the ([phi], N, G)-structure on de Rham cohomology. utilizing the stack-theoretic perspective rather than log geometry, he develops the constituents had to turn out the Cst-conjecture utilizing the tactic of Fontaine, Messing, Hyodo, Kato, and Tsuji, apart from the major computation of p-adic vanishing cycles. He additionally generalizes the development of the monodromy operator to schemes with extra basic forms of relief than semistable and proves new effects approximately tameness of the motion of Galois on cohomology.
