On behalf of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, we would like to congratulate 2016 Nobel prize winners in physics: David J. Thouless, J. Michael Kosterlitz and F. Duncan M. Haldane. The Nobel prize was awarded “for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter”.
These topics are very close to the mission and agenda of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics. http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/2016/
In particular, we would like to convey our best wishes to Duncan Haldane who participated in several activities at the Center. Duncan’s recorded talks at the Simons Center can be accessed here:
